About this deal

And considering the iPhone is a better sounding source than the Galaxy device we tested the Buds 2 Pro with… well, everyone is getting short changed here. The aforementioned AKG-tuned dual dynamic drivers—one for punchy bass, the other for midrange and high frequencies—means a more detailed overall soundstage than I hear from Google and Apple earbuds, and indeed even Samsung's own cheaper Galaxy Buds2 (which also have dual drivers). Goosebump-inducing 24-bit uncompressed audio means you can listen to High-Res Audio tracks in all their glory.

You get three ear tips in the box, and we’d recommend firing up Samsung’s Galaxy Wearable app and running the Earbud Fit Test to make sure you’ve got the best seal. It also has an auto-switch function to swap devices, so long as they are Samsung and you’re signed in with a Samsung account — similar to the H2 chip in Apple products. The Samsung Galaxy Buds 3 Pro could soon be on the horizon, so stay tuned for news regarding their announcement! Samsung has partnered with AKG (a subsidiary of Harman International, now owned by Samsung) for the last few years to tune the Galaxy Buds series.Colors that set the tone - Both the earbuds and cradle are available in a range of premium colors, Graphite, White and Bora Purple. Even if it doesn’t quite cancel as much of the sub-bass noise as the Galaxy Buds 2 Pro, it nearly mutes trebly noise thanks to the foam ear tips. By default, the touch-and-hold command is set to “volume up” on the right and “volume down” on the left. Pairing the Galaxy Buds 2 Pro is pretty easy, as Samsung has included a light on the interior of the case to show the status of the buds.

It’s smaller than the AirPods Pro or Sony XM5 cases and takes up barely any space in our pocket or small bag.And because Voice Detect technology knows when you're speaking, you can easily chat with your Buds still in place. It does have automatic device switching, which allows you to seamlessly switch devices so long as they’re Samsung and using the same account. Samsung phone owners—or really, anyone with a modern Android—now have a solid reason not to be jealous of their friends’ elephant-trunked AirPods Pro ( 8/10, WIRED Recommends). The upgraded Samsung Seamless Codec encodes the full 24-bit audio and is decoded via Galaxy Buds2 Pro, maintaining that same 24-bit high-quality sound. A rubbery finish on the outside of the case and the earbuds makes it super easy to latch onto them, unlike the polished white plastic of AirPods, which tend to evade my butter fingers.

At the Buds 2 Pro's summer 2022 launch, it was the first time we’d seen the latest Bluetooth standard appear on a product, and it’s a huge step up from the Buds Pro's 5.Connecting the Buds 2 Pro to our Galaxy S22 Plus smartphone is now as quick as when connecting AirPods Pro 2 to an iPhone. You can connect your Samsung Galaxy Buds 2 Pro to your Kindle device, similarly to how you connect to your smartphone.

It only lets the user opt out of location tracking initially but then refuses to run subsequently until allowed. You get a total of 18 hours with the case (ANC on), and with ANC off the Buds 2 Pro earbuds’ single-charge goes up to eight hours. The buds sound the best when paired with a Samsung phone, and non-Samsung Android owners get the short end of the stick with fewer codec options.You also get a similar suite of codecs (Samsung Seamless Codec or Samsung Seamless Codec, AAC, and SBC), and yes, the Galaxy Buds 2 Pro is capable of 24-bit audio. Sound quality - Every note sounds like the real thing because clear audio starts at the source with your favorite Samsung Galaxy device. Most purchases from business sellers are protected by the Consumer Contract Regulations 2013 which give you the right to cancel the purchase within 14 days after the day you receive the item. That's why I’ve been a fan of Samsung's Galaxy Buds Pro ( 9/10, WIRED Recommends), which employed a tuned pair of drivers to provide deeper bass and clearer highs than its California-designed peers.
