Samsung Electronics has launched its next-generation earbuds: Galaxy Buds Pro at its Galaxy Unpacked 2021 event. Samsung’s most premium earbuds have better call quality, immersive sound, intelligent Active Noise Cancellation (ANC), and enhanced connectivity to the devices.

“Galaxy Buds Pro offers users a one-of-a-kind audio experience that makes even everyday tasks truly epic.” said TM Roh, President and Head of Mobile Communications Business, Samsung Electronics. 

Let’s take a look at some of the extraordinary features the Galaxy Buds Pro:

Superior Sound & Call Quality

The Galaxy Buds Pro offers better sound quality compared to any other earbuds available in the market. Galaxy Buds Pro has an 11-mm woofer for deeper bass and a 6.5-mm tweeter for higher-frequency sounds and minimum distortion. Galaxy Buds Pro has 360-degree sound with Dolby Head Tracking technology. 

The Galaxy Buds Pro has 3 microphones and a Voice Pickup Unit (VPU) to provide the best audio experience and call quality. The 3 microphones and a VPU separate your voice from unwanted sounds. 1 microphone of the buds has a high signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) which helps to reduce background noises. The Galaxy Buds Pro also has Wind Shield technology to minimize wind interference during a call.  

Intelligent Active Noise Cancellation

The Galaxy Buds Pro have improved ANC abilities which reduce the background noise by up to 99%. The Galaxy Buds Pro has an Ambient Sound feature by which users can increase nearby sounds by over 20 decibels, according to their needs. Galaxy Buds Pro can also identify when a user started speaking, and they automatically cancel the background sounds. They automatically reduce the music volume when you want to talk, so that you can communicate more effectively.  

Users can personalise the Intelligent ANC features such as ANC, Ambient Sound and Voice Detect via the Galaxy Wearable app.  

Quick Charging

When the Galaxy Buds Pro is fully charged, users can enjoy 8 hours of playback. Users also have an extra 20 hours of reserve power in the wireless charging case. When ANC is turned on, users can get 5 hours of playback and 13 hours of reserve power in the case. The Galaxy Buds Pro comes with a quick charging feature which gives users 1 hour of playtime in just 5 minutes of charging. 

Stylish Design

Galaxy Buds Pro looks less protrusive and more stylish. These canal-type earbuds are more comfortable and minimize the contact area between your ear and the bud, reducing a clogged-up feeling.  

Water resistance

The Galaxy Buds Pro comes with an IPX7 water resistance rating. The Galaxy Buds Pro can be submerged up to 1 meter in water for 30 minutes. But users are not advised to use the Galaxy Buds Pro on the beach or in the pool.  

Locate lost earbuds

Users can easily locate their lost earbuds with SmartThings Find even when they’re out of Bluetooth range or misplaced at a distant location.
