During Samsung’s recent Unpacked event, the company revealed the Galaxy Buds Pro, its latest wireless earbuds.
Designed to be a high-end alternative to the Galaxy Buds + and to be sold alongside the bean-shaped Galaxy Buds Live, the Galaxy Buds Pro include active noise cancellation and various other high-end features.
The Buds Pro look very similar to Samsung’s Buds + and feature a familiar on-ear design and glossy exterior that is very reminiscent of the Galaxy Buds +.
The Galaxy Buds Pro also feature five hours of battery life with active noise cancellation activated, an 11mm woofer, a 6.5mm tweeter, three microphones, and IPX7 water resistance.
It’s worth noting that unlike most headphones, the Galaxy Buds Pro’s active noise cancellation can be adjusted between ‘High’ and ‘Low’. Additionally, when set to ambient mode, users can change the amount of sound that passes through the headphones. Other functionality includes the ability to have surround audio automatically turn on when someone speaks, even with active noise cancellation turned on.
In several ways, the Galaxy Buds Pro are Samsung’s answer to Apple’s AirPods Pro. Specs-wise, the headphones are very similar, and the Buds Pro actually offer more features and customizable audio controls for a lower price. That said, it’s unclear if Samsung’s first high-end headphones will be able to match the sound quality of the AirPods Pro.
The Galaxy Buds Pro will launch on January 14 for $ 264.99 in ‘Phantom Silver’, ‘Phantom Violet’ and ‘Phantom Black’ colors. MobileSyrup will have more on Buds Pro in the coming days.
During Samsung’s Unpacked event, the company also revealed the high-end Galaxy S21, S21 +, and S21 Ultra.
