Ever since Apple unveiled the Airpods, its competition has been scrambling for a share of the limelight. Among those who have been more successful is Samsung, a brand with a diverse lineup of true wireless offerings it calls the Galaxy Buds.
Having finally unveiled the Galaxy Buds Pro, Samsung is setting its sights on Apple’s top-dollar Airpods model. Within the line, they’re the first to feature a practical application of ANC, for though the Galaxy Buds Live also featured the tech, its effectiveness was limited by the open-ear design. However, thanks to their three microphone setup and Wind Shield soundproofing, the Pros are capable of eliminating up to 99% of background noise. And when it comes to the audio quality, they more than deliver. By combining 360 Audio with a bass-heavy 11mm woofer and a crisp 6.5mm tweeter for treble, Samsung says the Pros offer the most comprehensive audio of any Galaxy Buds yet. Top it off with features like a Voice Pickup Unit (VPU) for crystal clear calls and automatic device toggling for seamless smartphone use, and the result is a pair of earbuds ready to give Apple a run for its money.
