Apart from being able to access the equalizer and being able to adjust how much noise cancellation or transparency you get, one of my favorite features is find my ear buds which lets you ring your missing buds in case one goes missing.
Last year’s galaxy buds live was shaped like beans but the galaxy buds pro looks more sophisticated, they’re definitely some of the best looking ones in the market today, let’s get your take on that in the comment section below this post.
Samsung says they were designed to look less protrusive and look more natural, the outer touch surface has a mirror-like glassy finish.
You can tap to control your music, tap once to pause or play your music, double tap to play the next track, triple tap to play previous track, by default, tapping and holding is user changeable that is you switch between noise cancellation and transparency mode.
Fit and comfort
For the best noise cancellation on any kind of ear buds or over ear headphones, you need a good seal, this buds ships with 3 different size phone-tips so you can get the best fit, I checked the smallest one and they fit well. Even a bit of head bang seems to have kept them in, they can as well stay in your ear during road walks, in addition to that, these buds have an IPX7 water resistance ready which makes them good enough to use while working out. In terms of comfort, this device promises comfort even in prolonged use.
Intelligent Noise cancellation
The best part about the galaxy buds pro is it’s active noise cancellation, when you put it on, it can get rid of background noise or the hum from a heater, you’ll still hear the noise on a sub-way, but mostly other noise will be drained out, more so with music on, for someone who travels a lot or at least ones in a while, this noise cancellation buds is just perfect because you can just throw it into your backpack, instead of having to log around with big pair of headphones, it will also do the job of drowning out the sound of a baby crying nearby.
This basically means you can start taking to someone even while using the buds pro, it will switch to transparency mode immediately someone talks to you, once you’re done, it will switch back to noise cancellation mode.
You can also set how long you want it to remain in transparency mode.
Well, Noise cancellation is only half the job done when it comes to the sound quality of the galaxy buds pro, inside the small buds is an 11mm woofer for bass sound production and a 6.5mm tweeter for treble sound production. Overall, the sound is great with sound balance between the treble and bass sound production which is something that is very important to music lovers, there is also a 360 degree audio settings that Mimicks low tide directional surround sound which is pretty cool. I was listening to some cool Naija Hip hop vibes recently, and I could hear the panning effects of the music, meanwhile if you’re a gamer, game mode will also reduce audio latency so you could hear those gunshots as fast as you can pull the trigger.
The Samsung galaxy buds have three microphones, one on the inside, two on the outside, there’s also wind shield tech that blocks out ambient noise so people on the other end of the car can hear you better.
Battery life and charching
Samsung is promising five (5) hours of playback with ANC turned on, you can charge the buds by popping them into the case, in terms of charging speed, speaking of charging the case, and you can charge it by plugging it to a charger via USB-C cable or by popping the case down on a wireless charging mat.
