Samsung redesigned the latest Galaxy Buds 2 with a low budget in mind, the Galaxy Buds Pro is its complete-package wireless earbuds. The air buds debuted in January and we found them to be Samsung’s best wireless earbuds till date — but they are also the Samsung’s most expensive at $200. But B&H Photo has a limited-time sale going on right now @ 37 percent off the buds, bringing them down to $127. That’s close to an all-time low and a great price on the most premium Samsung earbuds.
Samsung had many iterations of its earbuds before the Galaxy Buds Pro came along, and Samsung took all previous criticism to hear when designing the Pros. They have a compact, comfortable design with a waterproof rating. Active noise-cancellation is solid, blocking out sounds from things like running dishwashers well, and Android users can download the companion mobile app to change noise-cancellation settings.
The mobile appliction also lets you do things like enable hands-free Bixby and disable voice detection, which will automatically lower the volume and switch to the ambient sound mode when you are speaking. We were also impressed by the buds’ sound quality — the 11mm woofer handles the low-end well and highs are crisp and punchy. The Galaxy Buds Pro also supports 360 Audio, which is Samsung’s equivalent to Apple’s Spatial Audio on AirPods Pro.
As far as battery time goes, it’s decent but nothing to write home about. You will get roughly 18 hours of listening time out of the buds. We do like that the case supports wireless charging, though, so you can sit them on any Qi pad in your home to get extra juice.
