Samsung’s Galaxy Buds 2 Pro Feature Enhanced Audio, But Only for Galaxy Phones – CNET

Written by admin

What’s happening

Samsung’s $230 Galaxy Buds 2 Pro feature the company’s 360 audio and higher-quality sound as long as they’re paired with a compatible Galaxy phone.

Why is it important?

Samsung’s higher-end Galaxy headphones include features that rival the Pixel Buds Pro and the AirPods Pro, but also compete with them by locking exclusive features into their device ecosystem.

What comes next

Samsung’s new wireless earbuds debut alongside the Galaxy Z Fold 4, Z Flip 4 and the Galaxy Watch 5 line, all of which will be released later in August.

Samsung showed new Galaxy Buds 2 Pro wireless headphones in August Unpacked eventin addition to the Galaxy Z Fold 4, Z Flip 4 and the Galaxy Watch 5 line They cost $230 (£219, AU$349), and will ship on August 26.

Like the previous one Galaxy Buds Pro, Samsung is pumping up how the wireless headphones support what it calls 360 audio, which should allow a surround sound experience. But to make this use, the Galaxy Buds 2 Pro must be connected to a supported Galaxy phone with at least Android 8.0 and Samsung’s One UI 4.1 overlay.

The Galaxy Buds 2 Pro also supports 24-bit hi-fi audio, but that feature also requires a Galaxy phone running Samsung’s One UI 4.0 or higher.

In addition to those Galaxy-only improvements, the wireless buttons do have active noise cancellation and a battery that’s rated for 20 hours with noise cancellation on. Without noise pollution, Samsung says the buttons can stretch for up to 30 hours between charges.

The Galaxy Buds 2 Pro have a water resistance level of IPX7 for water and sweat, making them good for the gym or a rainy day, and they come in three colors: Bora purple, white and graphite.

The Galaxy Buds line often has inventive designs (I’m still looking for a follow-up to the bean-shaped Galaxy Buds Live), but it’s a bummer that it continues the industry trend of requiring a matching phone for the best sound quality. Google is new Pixel Buds Pro also require a Pixel phone for its spatial audio, and Apple is quite notorious for including all sorts of benefits for AirPods users when paired with Apple’s devices.
