The Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro have an 11 millimeter woofer and a 6.5 millimeter tweeter. This should ensure a dynamic and balanced sound. You can use the earplugs for your music, but also during online meetings and gatherings. There are three microphones on board, which should make you understandable. One of the microphones has a high signal-to-noise ratio (snr), which should improve intelligibility. The Voice Pickup Unit must also contribute to this by letting your voice come to the fore. Wind also has no chance thanks to Wind Shield.

In addition, there is active noise cancellation, also called active noise canceling (ANC). You can filter ambient noise up to 99 percent. With the Ambient Sound mode you can let some sounds, up to 20 decibels, through. Anc and Ambient Sound can also work together, so you can tailor the sound supply to your own hearing. The earplugs also recognize that you are talking and automatically switch between amplifying and filtering sounds according to the situation. The Galaxy Buds Pro also automatically turn down the music when you speak, even if you use Ambient Sound or have anc switched off.
If you have multiple products within the Samsung ecosystem, the Samsung Galaxy Buds can probably work with them. If you have relatively modern smartphones and / or tablets, the earplugs make automatic contact. For example, if you watch a video on your Galaxy Tab S7 with your Galaxy Buds Pro and you receive a phone call, the Auto Switch function pauses the video immediately and you can answer the call. Once the call is over, the video will start playing again and you will hear the matching sound through your earbuds.
The Galaxy Buds Pro are a strong combination with the Galaxy S21. By linking them you create a three-dimensional sound via 360 Audio with Dolby Head Tracking technology. The earbuds also have a Game Mode. The battery in the earplugs lasts up to eight hours; the included cases add an additional twenty hours of battery life. With ANC on, that number will drop to five and thirteen hours. After five minutes of charging, however, you can listen for up to one hour.
The Galaxy Buds Pro are rated ipx7 for water resistance. You also don’t have to worry about losing your earbuds, because with SmartThings Find you can find them again, even if they are out of bluetooth range.
