On Tuesday, Samsung unveiled new Galaxy ZFlip and S20 handsets in the United States, along with a new generation of Galaxy Budds wireless headphones. Foreign media have now got the product and compared it to Apple's Air Pods. In terms of design, the Galaxy Buds looked almost identical to the previous generation's "no" Galaxy Bud, but added a microphone and the charging box surface was more glossy than matte. Size, comfort and so on are unchanged.
The overall appearance of the Galaxy Buds is almost the same as in previous generations
The Galaxy Buds look closer to the Air Pods Pro, whose soft silicone plug can be embedded in the ear canal to provide a tighter seal, but there is no active noise reduction in the Galaxy Buds.
Rubber plug design is similar to airpods Pro
The main selling point of the Galaxy Buds is improved sound quality and battery life, which now lasts up to 11 hours and seems to have improved sound quality.
While the design is closer to the Air Pods Pro, the Galaxy Buds are closer to the price and functionality of the second generation Air Pods. For example, it costs $149,$10 less than the second-generation AirPods (without a wireless charging version) and $100 more than the AirPods Pro.
Each Galaxy Buds has touch capabilities that can be used to play/ pause, switch songs and activate voice assistants. But these features have platform limitations when Galaxy Buds is connected to IPhoneThis is also the only three functions, but if you are linked to an Android device, long press the touch key to start spotify music.
But its real competition is the second generation AirPods
Samsung also provides tools to control the environment's sound level (although we don't think it's useful), and to adjust the sound profile. There are preset options for adding bass or treble, and an option to make the audio more dynamic or softer. Although these are not real equalizers, they have more functions than airpods, which have nothing
Overall, Galaxy Buds sounds better than Air Pods compared to the previous generation's biggest improvement sound effects, but many users may not be able to hear the big difference. And compared to AirPods Pro, the sound quality of the latter is very different, but considering that Galaxy Buds is $100 cheaper, and that it's not actually an active noise-reducing headset, it's not as fair as that.
As for the purchase suggestions, it really has a lot to do with what kind of mobile phone you are currently using. If you want to have headphones for iPhone, airpods is still the first choice. If you want to have headphones for Android mobile phone, you can see Samsung.
