Same design but longer lasting battery and sound improvement
As the TWS are more mature and stable, new features are being tested the waters such such as thermal monitoring and hear-rate tracking, but the Galaxy Buds Plus’s debut is more about the sound.
Available in black, white and blue color the Galaxy Buds Plus appears more or less the same as previous version, but the hardware got something new and it focuses on the sound quality.
The buds can play up to 11 hours, not to mention the charging case can provide 20 hours more.
I thought it is built with BA and Dynamic driver but it’s not, the Plus has dual dynamic driver, 3 microphones (for better call quality and reduce the background noise while taking calls).
With a lot of mic built-in, the Plus’s call performance is on par with Airpods
Dual driver with sound mastered by AKG, Galaxy Buds Plus have a boosted bass that’s good for music with strong bass, but because mid and highs are not received that enhancement, the Galaxy Buds Plus is just fine for other music that require more detail, clarity.
Samsung seems to hesitate to include the ANC to their product, which Apple (Airpods Pro) and Sony (WF-1000XM3) already did. That’s actually a good thing because without ACN the Plus are “slim, and they are cheaper than Airpods Pro.
Samsung adds a new feature to trigger the steaming music app, Spotify by just tap and hold the left bud.
It retails for less $100 than Airpods Pro.
