It’s easy to get excited about technological innovations, but new tech often comes with a considerable price tag. In the audio world, noise cancellation is one of the most exciting new improvements, but these new headphones have historically been more expensive than those without the tech. These days, ANC has become more commonplace, and manufacturers are creating more affordable options just as capable as premium headphones, just like Samsung has done with the Galaxy Buds FE, a pair of reasonably priced buds that feature ANC.
Breaking down the specs, the most impressive feature by far (given the price) is the inclusion of ANC (Active Noise Cancellation), with an Ambient Sound mode to personalize your listening experience. As for the battery life, you’re getting a total of 30 hours with the charging case, 8.5 hours of playback on a single charge, and 6 hours of playback with ANC on. The three built-in mics work alongside the AI-powered Deep Neutral Network to tune out background noise and provide crisp call quality. Sound quality is solid, too, with 12mm drivers, and the IPX2 resistance means they’re capable workout headphones as well. Like the OG Galaxy Buds Plus, these buds feature an ergonomic fit, with three ear tips and two wingtip sizes to give you a personal fit.
Alongside these new buds, Samsung is also releasing the Galaxy S23 FE smartphone and Tab S9 FE tablet to expand the Galaxy ecosystem further. It’s also been exciting to see the FE (Fan Edition) lineup of Samsung tech expanding as well, and if more budget-friendly and high-tech products are on the way, there’s a lot to be excited about.
The Samsung Galaxy Buds FE will be available on October 10th for $99, and they’ll come in two colorways: Graphite and White. You can sign up for updates and check out the specs on Samsung’s website.
