Its all about the Bass and Clarity on a Premium


Samsung has been producing quite a few Earbuds from few years ago, improving the quality, design and clarity with added few features every time they release a new model. Today we will take a look at the new Galaxy Buds Pro released together with the Galaxy S21 series range of phone lineup.

The Unboxing

The Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro comes with the following ;

1x Galaxy Buds Pro
1x Charging Case
1x Spare Eartips
1x USB Type-A to C Cable
1x Quick Start Guide/Manual

These are the typical items you will get in a box, simple enough and the box indicate the the color you will get or purchase without looking into description details under the box

The Design

The Galaxy Buds Pro case looks like a cute pebble to me, with its shell opened up reveals the earbuds that represents a very elegant, careful design that fits to your ears. If the default installed eartips is not suitable, there is spare eartips if different sizes that suits everyone needs. The carrying case is weighted about 44 grams and which such a small size, its easy to carry and fits in the pocket. The buds is weighted at 6.3 grams which is just nice to be wear upon. The Buds Pro comes in 3 colors, Phantom Violet, Phantom Black & Phantom Silver.

Performance – Battery and Connectivity

The Galaxy Buds Pro will last about 5 hours on my experience for a single charge, and recharging back via the included Buds Pro case will let you have another 12 rounds of battery life over to your pair of earbuds. This ensure long lasting music listening and continuous gaming and entertainment enjoyment. Recharging wise, 5 minutes gives you roughly about 1 hour of music time, while charging the case took roughly about 1 hour via the supplied cable, however wireless charging will take slightly longer than that.

Connectivity wise, the Galaxy Buds Pro is connected via Bluetooth 5.0 and its simple, just turn on the Bluetooth on your phone and scan, open up the charging case take out the Earbuds and place it to your ears, and its connected via a notification on your Galaxy Phone (or any Android 7.0 phone with Galaxy Wearable app installed). Its just that simple. The pair of earbuds will detect each other automatically in stereo mode

Performance & Features

The Galaxy Buds Pro is packed with awesome features, performance wise , every time when I pick the earbuds up to my ear, its connected immediately, reconnection is quick as lightning , with close to no latency when playing games or just streaming via YouTube. Features includes automatic noise cancellation which when someone is having a conversation with you in the real world, you will be able to hear the other person speaking, once ANC is deactivated when there is human voice present, it will be reactivated after 10 seconds. There is an equalizer settings that is predefined under the Galaxy wearable settings if you need more bass for your music. Call quality is clear and excellent, with no voice muffle during normal calls via VoLTE and VOIP based call, as well as video calling via Zoom and Google. Other features includes IPX7 water resistance, AAC sound compatibility, SmartThings find & auto switch audio route with other Galaxy compatible devices.

The Galaxy Buds Pro is one of the best when it comes to quality, design and performance combined, it comes at a high price of RM799, but the price that you are paying for is worth especially if you are currently using the family of Galaxy phones and tablets as a daily driver, which is a perfect combination. However do take note that Samsung has yet to provide compatibility with iOS, Mac and Windows devices, and I believe Samsung will roll out an update for it soon.
