Samsung’s update for its premium wireless earbuds is also more modest. The Samsung Galaxy Buds2 Pro’s earbuds get a smaller, more comfortable fit than the original pair. These also now support 24-bit audio playback over Bluetooth, which you can take advantage of if you use a Samsung phone.
Aside from being 15% smaller than its predecessor, the Galaxy Buds2 Pro have larger venting grilles for added airflow to reach your ears. This design is meant to cut down that “plugged up” feeling you might have when worn for extended periods.
As mentioned, you get hi-fi audio playback now. But your phone needs to be running on One UI 4.0 or later to use it. Support also depends on the app. Like Spotify still doesn’t support this playback. Samsung credits its “seamless codec (SSC HiFi) for pulling off wireless hi-fi playback. “Quality music is enabled to transfer without a pause, and the new coaxial two-way speaker makes those sounds richer than ever,” the company claims.
The Samsung Galaxy Buds2 Pro also get “enhanced” 360-degree audio, Bluetooth 5.3, and Bluetooth LE Audio.
Keeping to its ecosystem, you can easily switch between connected Samsung devices. But the company missed out on adding multipoint support. This means the Samsung Galaxy Buds2 Pro can’t connect to two audio sources simultaneously.
Battery life is rated at up to five hours of playback with Active Noise Cancellation on or eight without it enabled. With the case, you get a total of 20 hours (ANC on) or 30 hours when it’s kept off. The earbuds themselves are IPX7 rated for water and sweat resistance.
The Samsung Galaxy Buds2 Pro retails for USD 229.99 or PHP 12,990 in Bora Purple, Graphite, and White.
