When I first put the Galaxy Buds 2 Pro on and turned on ANC, I noticed how much better they were at blocking out the annoying faint hum of the refrigerator than previous models. . Samsung claims the new Buds 2 Pro have an additional 3 dB of attenuation over the previous model. Experts at our sister site SoundGuys will test these claims in more detail over the next few weeks. However, based on my experience, I can already say that the Buds 2 Pro’s ANC is excellent in the low frequency range.
The Samsung Galaxy Buds 2 Pro are the latest and greatest true wireless earbuds from a tech giant that is increasingly investing in building a rich ecosystem of interoperable devices. For many brands, part of that equation is a pair of flagship buds that differentiate themselves from cheaper sets thanks to Active Noise Cancellation (ANC).
Apple may have popularized his noise-cancelling earbuds with his AirPods Pro, but other brands have improved his ANC chops. In particular, the Sony WF-1000XM4 stand out as the best ANC earphones available these days.
Of course, sometimes you don’t need noise canceling. B. When talking to other people. Then you can assign tap controls to adjust ANC or activate the voice recognition feature returning from the first generation Galaxy Buds Pro. This feature, which must be turned on in the Galaxy Wearable app, temporarily suspends ANC during calls and switches to transparent mode.
The Galaxy Buds 2 Pro don’t reinvent the wheel when it comes to earbuds either. This is great because a proper fit of the earbuds is important for noise canceling.Samsung offers a selection of silicone tips to choose from, malleable enough to keep you comfortable, and buds It’s balanced with just enough firmness to keep it in place. Unlike the Sony WF-1000XM4, these aren’t foam, so a good seal can be a little tricky, but once you find a matching set of tips, the insulation is pretty good.
It may not seem like a groundbreaking feature, but these earbuds are a definite evolution of Samsung’s top-of-the-line headphones. Buds 2 Pro make it easy to integrate ANC into your daily life without having to constantly remove and reinsert your headphones.
You will then be left alone for the next 10 seconds. Ten seconds is an awkward pause in any conversation, so it’s plenty of time to make sure you’ve really stopped talking. How good are buds at determining when I speak? I was skeptical at first. Pretty good, after all. Being able to talk to people without taking off the earphones is more convenient than I thought. They don’t take the WF-1000XM4 off the throne for isolation, but the Galaxy Buds 2 Pro make noise canceling more practical.
