What is the design of Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro?

Samsung  Galaxy Buds Pro

Talking about the earbuds, the Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro come with lightweight and comfort design. A new look can be seen on the shape of the classic earbud. The design minimizes discomfort when you’re tuned in for hours and stays secure in your ears while working out. And with air vents that balance the pressure in your ears and increase air flow. They fit so naturally that you’ll forget what you’re wearing.

The Eartips come with three different size: small, medium (Default) and Large size. You need to select one that perfectly fit into your ear canal for batter isolation. Moreover, each earbud is polished to a high gloss while the matte interior feels soft against your skin. And don’t forget that matching case.Moreover, the Galaxy Buds feature IPX7 water resistance support. Which means you can use this earbuds during swimming and raining.

Furthermore, the Galaxy Buds Pro come with an Auto switch feature. Which detects what’s most pressing and instantly shifts its connection to that device. So, when you’re watching a movie on your tablet and get a call, Galaxy Buds Pro switch the audio to your phone. Then once you hang up, Galaxy Buds Pro seamlessly connect back to the tablet – flipping from device to device without you even touching a screen.

How do you handle Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro?

Both earbuds features a touch sensitive panel on the side that cover the typical range playback controls. Tapping either earbud once starts or stops the music you’re playing, double-tapping skips a song, and triple tapping goes back. By default, you can raise and lower the volume by tapping and holding the right and left earbuds respectively, but you can change that feature in the Samsung Wearable app. The also lets you shut off touch controls entirely, if that’s something you want.

Additionally, it all works pretty easily. I haven’t encountered any issues with touch detection yet. In fact, the controls are probably a little more sensitive. Almost every time I adjust the Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro – whether it’s taking it out, putting it in or shaking it a little to fit it properly – earbuds either respond by pausing what I’m hearing. Or playing music. Whatever I do.

InputCommand
One tapPlay/pause
Two tapsTrack forward/answer call/end call
Three tapsTrack back
Touch and holdDecline call/activate preset feature

Unfortunately, these earbuds react a little strangely when your device has more than one media source open or put together. There is nothing wrong with tapping or nudging an earbud while watching YouTube. But tapping while watching a video on a less popular app like Dropout will trigger music from Spotify to play on the video. Naturally, this is not something that a lot of people run into, but don’t be surprised if a rogue tape sends dhoom music to your ears on whatever you’re listening to.

Should you get the Galaxy Wearable app?

The Galaxy wearable app use to track down your lost earbuds very easily. You need to just open the SmartThings app. Your buds will emit a beep so you can easily find them in your room. And with Offline finding, you can find the last location they were used, even if they’re no longer connected to your phone.

Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro uses Samsung’s Galaxy Wearable application for many of its features. This is where you can access Noise cancellation features, turn on ambient sound, set or turn off touch controls, try different EQ profiles and more. The noise cancellation function has a high and low setting, and you can swap between them as you wish. EQ profiles like Bass Boost, Soft, Dynamic, Clear and Treble Boost are great, though unfortunately there is no option to set your own. The app also lets you turn on settings like automatic voice detection and a seamless earbud connection, allowing the Galaxy Buds Pro to swap more easily between paired audio sources (if they’re signed into your Samsung account).

What is the sound quality of Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro?

The Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro offers very good audio output. There’s a notable boost in bass range sound, and a spike in the very high range. It has feature custom-built 2-way speakers with sound by AKG. Which provide a highest treble to the deepest bass. Galaxy Buds Pro offer the most immersive sound experience on Galaxy Buds. Whether you’re listening to a new album or the audiobook for your next road trip.

Along with 360 Audio, it shifts you into the middle of the scene. Moreover, with Dolby Head Tracking™ technology, Galaxy Buds Pro place you into the middle of your favourite video, movie or TV show.The intelligent motion-tracking sensor pinpoints the direction of the sound as you move your head, enabling a powerful sense of realism in your listening experience. And with content in Dolby Atmos®, hear every detail with greater clarity, and feel a deeper connection to the story.

Often, a frequency response like this means that the music should sound very nice at all times. Occasionally, you’ll find that bass-heavy tracks in particular make some vocals a little less clear. However, that kind of bass boost is very well within the norm for more consumer-friendly headphones, so you’ll probably only notice it when the bass comes with a little more omph.

How is the microphone on the Galaxy Buds Pro?

The Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro features most reliable and comfortable microphone for a pair of wireless earbuds. Moreover, the mic is very accurate and offering neutral output across the vocal range. However, having an embedded microphone is still a bit muffled, but not as bad as many other options on the market. Additionally, the microphone actually works very well to eliminate background noise if you’re far enough away.

Does the Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro have good Noise cancellation capabilities?

The Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro offers very standard isolation for a pair of true wireless earbuds with rubber tips, which is to say: it’s pretty good. It turns out that sealing the ear improves isolation go figure and good isolation is generally more important to keep out high-level, dynamic sounds. Moreover, Active Noise Cancelling on Galaxy Buds Pro filters out up to 99% of background noise. Microphones on the inside and outside monitor noise in real time. Choose the ANC level to dial the world up or down with an intelligent algorithm that cancels out the noise: turn it to High on a noisy bus, or use Low in a quiet library – no need to change the volume.

In addition, Voice Detect instantly switches from ANC to Ambient sound when it hears your voice. Like when you’re at a cafe using ANC to block outside noise, tell the barista your order and ANC automatically turns off when you speak. These intelligent buds turn down for your conversation, even if you’re using Ambient Mode or have ANC turned off, by lowering the volume of your music.

However, Ambient sound means you don’t have to take your earbuds out to join the conversation. You can hear voices with clarity and in real time. With an intelligent algorithm raising the volume of the environment through four levels, you don’t miss out on important parts of the discussion.

How good the Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro for taking calls?

Take noise-free callsthat blow your mind. The best quality call for true wireless earbuds means you get less noise and a clearer voice on calls at home or out in the world. With three built-in microphones and the voice pickup unit, every word is crystal clear. The low protrusion design minimizes wind contact, while the sophisticated wind shield solution blocks the sound of wind during calls.

How good is the connectivity option?

Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro uses Bluetooth 5.0 and supports three Bluetooth codecs: SBC, AAC and Samsung scalable codec. Samsung’s proprietary codec effectively acts as an aptX adaptive and constantly adjusts the transfer rate. This codec makes adjustments to improve both audio quality and connection stability, so things should always look as good as possible. iPhone users can also enjoy consistently high-quality audio on the AAC Bluetooth codec.

When you’re connected to your phone, you can speak to make things happen without touching it. A simple “Hi Bixby” wakes it up, and then you can give a command to make a phone call, change the music and more. You can even switch between Samsung devices by saying its name, and activate or turn off ANC and Ambient Mode.

Moreover, multi-connectivity lets you connect two sets of Galaxy Buds Pro to your phone at the same time. So, you can both listen to your BFF playlist with pro-grade sound quality. Like the Samsung Galaxy Buds Live, and their predecessor the Samsung Galaxy Bud Plus, the Galaxy Buds Pro can be used with any earbud in mono mode. This is a great feature for anyone living with a hearing loss.

How long does the battery last?

Samsung claims that these earbuds will last up to 5 hours on a single charge, with an additional charge of about 13 hours in the case, and in our testing, we found that it is not too far away. After playing music continuously, reaching a peak of 75dB (SPL), the Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro ANC can last up to 4 hours, 48 minutes. In this case there is definitely enough interest for a few charge cycles.

However, this type of battery performance is not that bad. But, it is far from the best around. It’s a bit insufficient, though the best in this regard is the Samsung Galaxy Buds Plus, which offers more than double the battery life – admittedly, the lack of ANC helps the older model to last a little longer. This performance is shy for a few minutes of Galaxy Buds Live, so not far from our expectations.

Conclusion

Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro is a great set of wireless earbuds. The buds are comfortable, they look very nice, and they provide a solid sound cancellation function. At $169 USD, the Galaxy Buds Pro is a bit expensive, but much cheaper than competing products like Apple AirPods Pro, and Sony WF-1000XM4, and Samsung’s Pro Earphones. Similar features. The lack of a codec like AptX is a dislike, but the Samsung scalable codec covers it well.

However, it is worth noting that the Galaxy Buds Pro is significantly more expensive than previous Galaxy Buds products, which is still worth considering. If noise cancellation isn’t something you really care about, the Samsung Galaxy Buds Plus still has the best battery life on the market for a pair of true wireless earbuds, and these days it’s easy to find for less than half the price.

What is some alternative to Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro?

There are plenty of capable options for Samsung’s Lead Noise Cancelling earbuds and one of the most obvious competitors: Apple AirPods Pro. Apple’s voice cancellation isn’t as effective as the Galaxy Buds Pro, but it’s more suitable for iPhone owners, and certainly more suitable than AirPods (3rd generation). Just as Samsung limits some of its software to Samsung Galaxy hardware, so does Apple with its AirPods software features.

There’s also the Sony WF-1000XM4 which compares well with the Galaxy Buds Pro. With Sony’s earbuds, you get access to its 360 reality audio, much like the Samsung 360 audio, which is more aimed at music lovers rather than movie fans. You can take advantage of this standard through premium streaming services like Tidal, Deezer and Nugs.net. Earbuds have a more mature design and a safer fit, but they’re a little more expensive than the Galaxy Buds Pro.

If you want to look beyond Apple and Sony, consider the JBL Tune 230NC for its more durable IPX4 rating, ear tip fit test, custom EQ and OS agnostic experience. Bose QuietComfort Earbuds is another great option that deserves an IPX4 rating and is comfortable to wear all day.
