Galaxy Buds Plus
Samsung Galaxy Buds Plus earbuds shine with great sound quality and extended battery life compared to Samsung Galaxy Buds (previous version), but with this version there is also no complete noise cancellation.
Fast Talk (Galaxy Buds Plus)
The new Samsung Galaxy Buds Plus earbuds are a much-needed update to the original Samsung Galaxy Buds.
It gives you many advantages and upgrades, for example, it provides better battery life and significantly improved voice for calls thanks to the presence of a third internal microphone and a new design of the dual motor, which uses two of the most powerful engines to obtain better sound.
The new earbuds also have support for iOS, through the new Samsung Galaxy Buds Plus app.
But despite the advantages present, there are several negative points, for example the new Samsung Galaxy Buds Plus earbuds lack advanced audio codecs and an IPX4 rating higher than Apple AirPods Pro, as they are limited to protecting the headphones from sweat only.
It also does not offer any form of noise reduction or noise cancellation, plus there is no built-in voice assistant like other true wireless earbuds.
The Samsung Galaxy Buds Plus earbuds come at a price of $ 149.99 / £ 159 / AU $ 299, as it is considered a price close to the price of the previous Samsung Galaxy Buds.
And the news has been leaked that Samsung is about to launch another pair of true wireless earbuds, the Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro, and we expect more great capabilities and features.
|Battery life||11 hours|
|Battery life(with charging case)||22 hours|

Galaxy Buds Plus: Design: Sleek, elegant
The Samsung Galaxy buds plus is incredibly amazing, when you look at what you want from these they got to be small, they got to be lightweight.
they get to fit in your ears and it fits very well, and thanks to the rubber tips unlike air pods. and they actually create a sort of a passive seal.
Samsung Galaxy buds plus not active noise-cancelling, but you know at this price you don’t really see that much.
but the seal is actually enormous and I don’t miss it that much, and I realize everyone’s ears are different.
so different people will have slightly different fits, but i was really impressed with the fit of these earbuds, snug they are in my ear.
i personally still rather have an active noise cancellation version of these.
if they made that like a pro version i’d be super cool with that but even just putting these in my ear, they create that seal and dim down the environment and by the time you start playing music, you don’t hear much else.
so for flying and mass transit and construction and loud stuff maybe this isn’t the way to go but generally for everyday use, pretty good.
so they’re comfortable, Samsung Galaxy buds plus have a legitimate best-in-class, 11 hour battery life for music listening which is mostly what i do with earbuds and that’s great and fast charging.
but honestly being able to go a full week of casual listening and not having any battery anxiety till like the last day of the week is awesome.

Galaxy Buds Plus: The case is very light
In speaking of charging, the cases are also pretty textbook, you can’t forget about the case, it’s small and slim, it’s just as pocketable and lightweight as airpods.
and it has USB type-c for charging, and it’s also capable of wireless charging if you want to put it on the back of your phone or on any wireless charger.
and even has a nice hinge weight and magnets for the lid to open and close with a satisfying click, it’s maybe not quite as satisfying as pixel buds, but that’s a pretty good click.
The buds are built well and they have this sort of a rubber fin around the outside that helps them seat in your ear instead of like one little piece poking out that can get kind of painful.
and I found that this is enough to stay in my ears really well.
not quite as locked in as say the Jaybirds with the full-on wingtips on those things, but locked in enough that i felt comfortable working out in them, it had no problems they stays in my ears
Features: Good controls and app
and speaking of working out, these are IPX2 rated, so some sweat is fine, now i still w would say they shouldn’t be dedicated workout headphones like maybe power beats or anything ipx7 certified.
but if you wear them everyday and you like happen to step out and sweat while wearing them or do a quick workout, they are fine.
and then the touch controls are also really simple, both earbuds have that pretty large touchpads surface and that’s where you play pause that’s where you fast-forward accept calls, long press for assistant, all that stuff.
I’ve been using them with my 1 plus 8 pro, so they call Google assistant, not Bixby but they worked fine with any Android phone or iPhone for that matter.
but they do work a little bit better with a Samsung phone because then you can get the galaxy buds app.
and that gives you a little more control over customizing, media controls and ambient sound pastor.
but generally even without that app they’ve rock-solid, no connection issues even walking across the studio, leaving my phone away, no problem.
Performance: Great sound and bass
The sound from the Samsung galaxy buds plus is really quite good, I was very impressed and happy with the sound from these.
they are what I would call a very full sound. they have a big rich full bass, crisp clean mids and highs, no background hiss.
These are tuned by AKG and they’re proud to put their name on it and I can see why.
The only complaint I could see coming from a different pair of Earbuds or headphones is these may actually feel a bit bass heavy if you’re not used to all this, but they can turn that down in the EQ, quite easily.
but I’ll tell you right now, i won’t be doing that, i listen to a lot of music and the way they sound out the box is great, it’s already great for music.
i think I’d go so far as to say these are the best sounding, non noise cancelling, wireless earbuds I’ve tried.
In the end, we can say that the Samsung Galaxy Buds Plus earbuds have a high level of true wireless earphones? Well, it has many upgrades compared to the previous version, and thanks to the better battery life of about 11 hours per charge, you will never again be bothered by forcing to charge your headphones at night.
But unfortunately, this version also comes without a built-in virtual assistant, in addition to that it does not contain real water resistance, it is only IPX2.
What really annoyed us was the Samsung Galaxy Buds Plus’ lack of noise cancellation, a feature available on Amazon Echo Buds at a similar price.
But in the end, they are great headphones, as you will get better service by providing a pair of Apple AirPods Pro if you are an iOS user or a pair of Sony WF-1000XM3 if you use Android, and the dual drive design is a big step for Samsung.
