We tested the Galaxy Buds Pro, Samsung’s answer to the AirPods Pro

Published

on

The Galaxy Buds, which I have been using since launch, offered excellent sound, but they also had some problems. My main pain point was how they kept falling from my ears. As an iPhone user, I also had trouble receiving calls with the Galaxy Buds.

The new Galaxy Buds Pro finally addressed all of those issues, to a degree. Not only do Samsung’s flagship wireless earbuds sound great, they also come packed with features like active noise cancellation and 3D audio, making the Buds Pro just as feature-packed as the AirPods Pro.

I spent the last seven days using the Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro, and this is how I found them.

Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro: comfort and fit

The Galaxy Buds Pro remind you of the Galaxy Buds +, which means they have a rounded ear cup design with a glossy finish, unlike the Galaxy Buds Live outdoors. Because the Galaxy Buds Pro are rounded and don’t protrude much from the ear, the headphones feel comfortable to wear for longer periods of time. In fact, they fit well and create a good seal that blocks out ambient noise. Samsung also includes different silicone tip sizes that should create a good seal. These buttons are extremely portable and the carrying case is small enough to fit in most pockets.

Like Samsung’s previous in-ear headphones, the Galaxy Buds Pro also feature touch controls. You can tap once to play or pause the audio, tap twice to skip the track forward, and tap three times to skip the track backward. My problem with the touch controls is that they are pre-programmed and there is no way to reassign them.

Not forgetting that the Galaxy Buds Pro have an IPX7 rating, which means that these headphones are more durable against water and sweat. The AirPods Pro, in comparison, come with the IPX4 rating. They can withstand sweat, but in the case of the Galaxy Buds Pro, you can soak them in water for up to 30 minutes.

Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro: sound quality is ‘wow’

The Galaxy Buds Pro are not meant to impress audiophiles, but people like me, who recently discovered the joy of listening to music while working from home.

Trying out a pair of truly wireless headphones or earphones is like attending a wine tasting and appreciation session. Audio quality can be subjective; it’s more about personal preferences. In terms of sound quality, the Buds Pro are a step up from the original Galaxy Buds. For me personally, the Galaxy Buds Pro felt well balanced throughout.

Listening to “The Joke” by Brandi Carlile, the piano-based ball that has a neoclassical sound comes to life, with clear voices. The headphones do a good job with deep bass, in case you heard Cardi B’s “Up”. I also listened to YouTube videos and podcasts, and the audio coming from the Buds Pro was satisfying.

Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro: active noise cancellation

Working from home can be distracting at times, especially when you’re in the middle of an important call. However, the Galaxy Buds Pro headphones have active noise cancellation (ANC). Samsung claims that ANC can block up to 99 percent of outside noise, and while I have no mechanism to prove those claims, these headphones worked well to block outside noise. Since there is construction going on at my house, the ANC did a good job of reducing noise coming from a tile cutter that was running nearby. The ANC can be adjusted on the Galaxy Buds Pro; you can set it low or high. However, I did not find many differences between them.

Besides watching YouTube videos and listening to podcasts, I liked the Galaxy Buds Pro for taking calls. I can speak to the person on the other end of the call at a normal volume, even outdoors. The headphones also have the 360 ​​audio function with Dolby head tracking technology. I couldn’t test it because the feature only works with devices running the latest Samsung software, OneUI 3.1.

Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro: battery life

Galaxy Buds Pro can last up to five hours with noise cancellation enabled. Fortunately, if you want longer battery life, the case offers an additional 2.5 charges. Turn off noise cancellation and the earbuds can last can support up to 8 hours of listening time and up to 28 hours with the case. Battery life varies according to use. The supplied charging case also supports Qi-enabled wireless charging. There is a light outside the case that turns orange when the headphones are charging and turns green when fully charged.

Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro: designed for Android

To be clear, the Galaxy Buds Pro are made for Samsung’s Android smartphones and tablets. I used Galaxy Buds Pro with iPhone 12 and Pixel 3XL, and while the headphones work fine on both devices, you won’t have the same audio features on iOS that you would find on Android. When I used Buds Pro with my iPhone 12, I found that the Galaxy Wearables app on iOS is not compatible with Samsung’s newer headphones. I had to give up features like 3D audio, customizable audio profile, and settings. Fortunately, I had the Pixel 3XL with me, so I was able to access a customizable audio profile using the Galaxy Wearable app and try out features like ANC, equalizer, and voice detection, a feature that lowers music volume and turns on ambient sound. .

Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro: Should You Buy Them?

If you have an iPhone, go for the AirPods Pro and if you’re someone who lives in the Samsung ecosystem, go for the Galaxy Buds Pro. You can’t go wrong with any of them. I think the Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro come close to the AirPods Pro, be it in terms of hardware design or sound quality. The Buds Pro headphones offer excellent sound quality, as well as top-notch noise cancellation. Although they are not cheap. At Rs 15,900, the Galaxy Buds Pro are definitely priced higher, but they undermine the AirPods Pro in terms of price.
