FIRST LOOK: The New $349 Galaxy Buds Pro Are Samsung’s Best Earbuds Yet
Samsung has introduced its next-generation Galaxy Buds Pro, an intelligent pair of true-wireless earbuds which are lighter, have better battery life and improved Active Noise Cancellation (ANC).
The super-small, 6.3g earbuds are a step up from the original Galaxy Buds in almost every way.
The Galaxy Buds Pro offer a more comprehensive sound experience, with an 11-mm woofer for deeper bass and a 6.5mm tweeter for crisp treble and minimum distortion.
The buds also have 360 Audio featuring Dolby Head Tracking technology and come with Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity.
Samsung designed the canal-type buds to be much lighter than the kidney-shaped Galaxy Buds Live and come in a compact portable case.
The Buds Pro also come with a suite of extra features that Samsung have designed to make earbuds more than just a device for listening to music.
Samsung’s earbuds are able to separate your voice from unwanted sounds with three microphones and a Voice Pickup Unit for phone calls and it is equipped with Wind Shield technology.
You can also reduce background noise by up to 99 per cent by fine-tuning the buds to a specific level in the mobile app.
And with Ambient Sound, users can also choose to amplify nearby sounds by more than 20 decibels.

Galaxy Buds Pro boast eight hours of playback fully charged and an additional 20 hours of reserve power in the wireless charging case.
They are also shipped with an IPX7 rating for sweat resistance. Perfect for running!
