Samsung’s new Galaxy Buds2 Pro is for audiophiles

Available August 26



In the past, the debate between wired and wireless audio raged in favor of the quality of the former. However, wireless audio has made great strides in delivering both convenience and quality in one captivating package. Unveiled during the latest Galaxy Unpacked event, Samsung has a new wireless care package for audiophiles: the Galaxy Buds2 Pro.

Featuring a 15 percent slimmer design, the wireless pair is all for ergonomics, preventing shifts in position while working out. It also comes with active noise cancellation to keep things between you and your music while on the go.

In terms of audio quality, the Galaxy Buds2 Pro has a coaxial two-way speaker and supports 24-bit Hi-Fi audio, providing crystal-clear music wherever you are. Plus, with the new Samsung seamless codec, disconnections won’t be much of an issue, keeping the music going.

As is common in a lot of earbuds, the new pair comes with gesture controls. However, with Samsung’s SmartThings, users can easily switch between different audio sources — from your phone to your tablet to your TV — with just a single gesture. Additionally, the feature will allow users to find the earbuds in case they get lost.

The Galaxy Buds2 Pro will start selling on August 26. Pre-orders will start on August 10. Those who pre-order the device can avail of a free wireless charger, up to US$ 75 worth of trade-in value, and US$ 30 credit on Samsung accessories.

It will come in Graphite, White, and Bora Purple. It sells for US$ 229.99.

Any Galaxy Z Fold4 pre-orders will get the same free memory upgrade, a Standing Cover with Pen case, and up to US$ 1,000 of trade-in value.
