Samsung goes Pro with new Galaxy Buds2 Pro earbuds

Following up its new Galaxy Z Fold4 and Z Flip4 foldable phones, Samsung announced new top of the line earbuds at the UnPacked 2022 event in New York. The Galaxy Buds2 Pros feature high-fidelity sound, a more compact design and stylish colour options.

Audiophiles will be thrilled with the Buds2 Pro’s 24-bit Hi-Fi audio support. This brings the ability to play higher-resolution music files, such as tracks using Samsung’s seamless codec (SSC HiFi). The net result is more dynamic, detailed playback and a greater range of sound.

Also new is spatial surround sound support along with Dolby 360-degree audio tracking for a theatre like experience.

Next, the Buds2 Pro get a more powerful Active Noise Cancelling system, to help eliminate outside noise. We’ll test out how this works in our upcoming GadgetGuy review.

The Buds2’s canal-type design has new aerodynamic features, including a vent hole, nozzle grill and mic array to help improve airflow. The wind shield is now 2 times larger than the previous Galaxy Buds Pros to cut down on wind noise.

The earbuds are smaller too, dropping 15 percent of their volume compared to the previous ones. The Buds2’s new shape also prevents rotation in your ear and should be more comfortable to wear for long periods.

A new Auto Switch feature provides a seamless transition from your music, game or movie back to your phone to answer a call. And thanks to Easy Pair, for the first time ever the Buds2 Pro will seamlessly connect to compatible Samsung TVs.

There are three colours to choose from including Samsung’s signature Bora Purple, along with White and Graphite.

The Galaxy Buds2 Pro costs $A349. Pre-orders begin on 11th August, with on-sale kicking off 2nd September.
