Even with that many options, it’s hard to find a perfect everyday listening companion in a pair of wireless headphones. If you’re like me, you want a mix of great sound, a comfortable fit, and sweat-wicking performance, a trio of features that are still pretty hard to come by in one product.
You’ll buy a great pair of workout headphones that fit well, but then you’ll have to deal with their poor sound. Or you’ll grab something that looks great and sounds great, but doesn’t really take the sturdiest things in stride.
This is why I was so impressed with the new Galaxy Buds Pro from Samsung. Whether I’m enjoying my favorite records, attending Zoom calls, or running hours-long runs, Samsung’s new flagship headphones are a reliable and welcome companion.
A long time to come
The helmet universe is closely parallel the smartphone. Samsung has been making some of the best phones for generations, and it’s the same with its wireless headphones. Korean society light and ergonomic pioneering models when they were virtually impossible to find, and that it was the first major company to introduce wireless charging into its headphone cases – a move Apple has wisely followed with its second generation AirPods.
With Hybrid Active Noise Canceling, a unique two-driver matrix and one of the smallest charging cases on the market, the Galaxy Buds Pro continue to showcase the cutting edge of earphone technology.
They also have a large audience in their sights. At $ 200, these headphones undermined the same named AirPods Pro (8/10, recommend WIRED) tens of dollars, and Samsung has even implemented a quick pairing feature that works (and, frankly, looks) almost identical to Apple’s exclusive pairing feature for iOS. I paired these headphones with a Galaxy Note S20 Ultra, and it worked perfectly, syncing the headphones to the phone as soon as I took the earbuds out of the case.
Stylish look, great features
