Samsung Galaxy BudsPro is the latest earbuds that were launched in January-2021 after Samsung Galaxy Buds Live launched in August 2020 and Samsung went back to the In-Ear design though the square charging case remains the same. The main colour is now Phantom Violet to meet the latest Galaxy S21 series along with Phantom Black and Phantom Silver. The glossy earbuds look amazingly beautiful indeed and people will be able to recognize your earbuds brand in a single glance. The first thing that hits you is the clarity of audio and the immersion into the music you love to listen to, I got impressed with these ones as soon as I played my first few Bollywood songs. Since then I have been using these Buds Pro in all my daily meetings, audiobooks listening along with unlimited watching of web series and Youtube videos. I can even say these are one of the best in the market at the moment and will continue to beat the upcoming ones because of their audio performance as well as various features like ANC, ambient noise and equalizers.
A close look at the earbuds will make you fall in love with the design that has both bling as well as simplicity to get things done. The silicon isolation has a fine mesh to keep dirt away just before the metallic mesh on earbuds. Silicon has an inbuilt socket so that it fits nicely and doesn't get lost like we see in other earbuds from other manufacturers. Left and Right earbuds are marked with Letters L and R. There are two sensors visible on the outside of the earbuds along with 2 meshes of speakers along with 2 pins to charge the earbuds. Earbuds stem is inclined towards the ear canals to make them fit perfectly in your ears. There is only one problem with any earbuds like these if your charging case is not working there is no other option to charge them or if you lost them then the rest of the mechanism goes to waste as there is no replacement so you have to take care of all these things.
First of all these new Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro comes in three colours - Phantom Black, Phantom Violet and Phantom Silver. These earbuds are IPX7 so they are water-resistant up to 1 m in freshwater though the case is not waterproof. It means that the normal rain and sweat won't make any difference to the quality of earbuds and they will still work after the same. You can even drop them into a glass of water and they will still work afterwards which is amazing. Saying that part of the feature though you shall always take care of the charging points should not be wet when you put them in the case or while charging the earbuds. Some days back Samsung launched care information too about all of their earbuds in the market from Galaxy Buds, Buds Plus, Buds Live and Buds Pro. If you want I can bring in some of the facts from the post, let me know if you want that on my blog. For your general information, Poly Consumer material has been used to make these earbuds and charging case which includes some 20% recycled plastic too. That's a great cause for nature considering how many millions of units will be produced and sold by Samsung.
Galaxy Buds Pro earbuds are a little heavier at 6.3 grams each as compared to 5.6g of Buds Live. The charging case is 44.9 grams whereas 42.4 grams in Buds Live. The battery of the earbuds is 61mAh and the case is 472mAh which is almost similar to Galaxy Buds Live exception being 60mAh in Buds Live. These earbuds still give 1 hour of playback with 5 minutes of charging. The case comes with a wireless power share where it can be charged using your Galaxy smartphone if it can provide wireless reverse charging. The charging case has a hump as compared to the Buds Live to accommodate the same battery despite a different design and to secure the in-ear earbuds using some strong magnets which don't fall even if you shake the open case.
The earbuds have an 11mm woofer that provides deeper bass and a 6.5mm tweeter for crisp treble which is the powerhouse behind the clear audio quality along with several sensors built into it. I am sure I am a big fan of treble myself hence I felt magically attached to these earbuds as the previous versions didn't have so much treble. 3 microphones, a voice pickup unit and a windshield provide great voice quality during calls or video recordings. All this setup provides great clear audio and less noise during the calls. ANC and Ambient Sound are the features enhanced over previous versions with giving users the opportunity to control their ANC with 2 adjustable levels and ambient with 4 adjustable levels along with voice detect all controlled via the Samsung Wear App.
Each earbud gives around 8 hours of playback along with the case giving another playback of 20 hours totalling 28 hours without ANC. With ANC, the same reduces to 5 hours and the case gives 13 hours totalling 18 hours which is quite a reduction in the number of hours. The technology inside these earbuds is huge and miniaturing the circuit board and the battery is what innovation is all about. We generally only see the casing outside and the audio performance but what's working inside to produce that audio performance is beyond our imagination. The intelligence on these Buds Pro is such that it switches from ANC to ambient sound and lower the music volume for your conversation. It detects your own voice too if you start singing while listening to music which sometimes is irritating and needs software improvement. Though the feature won't get turned on if it senses that it's an external noise and not a human voice that is really intelligent.
Active Noise Cancellation reduces up to 99% of noise reduction along with the passive isolation the earbuds provide. Ambient sound also provides up to 20dB amplification. I generally don't use ANC these days as we are always at home and at home, you need to listen to the doorbell as once when I was using it - a family who has to come to meet us, kept ringing the doorbell and I could not hear it too and then they called my wife to open the door as she was walking outside. I have even crossed many walls before which the Bluetooth connection drops on these earbuds so the amount of money you are paying for them is well worth the price. People have compared these with the Sony and Apple Earbuds too and found that these are worthy of the top position. I don't have the other two to test them out but I am totally in love with these ones for sure and these ones have brought my love for music back again right in my sense of listening.
I totally am in the love with the best Samsung can offer in terms of True Wireless Audio earphones and enjoying every song I listen to on these Galaxy buds pro. The quality of this product is amazing and the durability is also great. The product is retailing for around R3999 and is included in some of the bundled packages with the smartphone. I am sure it will easily last me for more than 2-3 years. In the recent software updates, Samsung has provided the update to use even a single earbud in ANC mode as well as ambient noise mode which was not the case earlier. I am waiting for that update to happen on my earbuds and then I can keep myself focused on the tasks as well as music in my ears. Thanks to Samsung South Africa for launching them in this country and I am reaping its benefits for sure! Thanks!!!
