Samsung’s latest true wireless earbuds pack a punch with their next-level sound quality, Intelligent Active Noise Control and seamless connectivity, all encased in an impeccable design
London, UK – January 14, 2021 – Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. today announced the launch of its next-generation earbuds: Galaxy Buds Pro. These earbuds feature immersive sound, superior call quality, Intelligent Active Noise Control and enhanced connectivity across your devices – all packed into a modern and sleek design. Galaxy Buds Pro represent Samsung’s most premium true wireless earbuds offering to-date, built to help you get the most out of your work, entertainment, and everything in between.
“We know that people are looking for technology to help them adapt to new routines and lifestyles, especially as we continue to work, learn and play from home. The true wireless earbuds market is one of the fastest growing categories, and consumer expectations have risen,” said Conor Pierce, Corporate Vice President for Samsung Electronics UK and Ireland. “Our newest earbuds will take your everyday to new levels. With Galaxy Buds Pro, we’ve carefully engineered the entire experience to maximise audio quality, convenience, and seamless use – all packed into a sleek and stylish design. These are undoubtedly our most premium earbud offering to date”.
Next-Level Sound & Call Quality
A premium earbuds experience always starts with sound. Whether you use your earbuds to play music on a run or listen to your favourite podcasts to unwind, audio quality is what matters most. Galaxy Buds Pro offer a whole new level of immersive comprehensive sound, sporting an 11-millimeter woofer for deeper bass and a 6.5-millimeter tweeter for a crisp treble with minimum distortion. This delivers Samsung’s best audio experience yet – a dynamic, balanced sound. So, whether it’s a rhythmic hip hop groove or intricate classical melody, you can enjoy your music just as the artist intended, anytime and anywhere.
But earbuds aren’t just for entertainment anymore – they’ve become crucial for work communication, and call quality is more important than ever. Galaxy Buds Pro separate your voice from unwanted sounds with three microphones and a Voice Pickup Unit (VPU), ensuring you are heard as clearly as possible. One of the outer microphones also has a high signal-to-noise ratio(SNR), further eliminating background noises. In addition, Samsung has integrated its new Wind Shield technology into Galaxy Buds Pro. While a less protrusive shape minimises the wind contact area, a specially designed chamber and mesh filters out wind interference. Your phone calls have never been clearer, even if you’re stuck in windy weather.
Intelligent Active Noise Control on True Wireless Earbuds
The Galaxy Buds Pro experience is about hearing more of what you love, and less of what you don’t. Intelligent Active Noise Control lets you seamlessly switch between noise cancelling and fully adjustable Ambient Mode. So you can let the outside in – or keep it out. When you need to focus on work – or tune out from the world around to relax – you can reduce the background noise by up to 99 percent using Active Noise Cancelling technology. And with Ambient Mode, you can choose to amplify nearby sounds by more than 20 decibels, meaning you can adjust and personalise according to your needs. This feature is ideal for busy multitaskers – those working from home, while looking after a child or those who want to take a run through the city while staying alert for oncoming traffic.
What’s more, ANC and Ambient Mode automatically work together, adapting to your surroundings, to optimise your audio experience. Galaxy Buds Pro recognise when you’re speaking, and they can automatically switch between cancelling nearby sounds and amplifying them. They will also lower the volume of your music when you want to talk with their Voice Detect feature that automatically detects speech, turns down what your listening to and switches from ANC to Ambient Mode. This technology allows you to hear and communicate more effectively and makes Galaxy Buds Pro the perfect tool for daily use, so you never have to take them out of your ears.
An Even More Seamless Galaxy Experience
Galaxy Buds Pro are an integral extension of the Galaxy ecosystem – our most seamless earbuds yet. Now, you can automatically toggle your earbuds connection between your Galaxy smartphones and tablets based on your usage – no manual adjustments required. For example, if you’re watching a video on your Galaxy Tab S7 and then receive a call on your Galaxy S21, the all-new Auto Switch feature will pause the video and let you answer the phone using Galaxy Buds Pro. Once the call is over, your earbuds instantly switch back to your tablet; the video plays again, and you can hear the audio through your earbuds again.
Galaxy Buds Pro also expand your audio experience by connecting with other Galaxy devices – especially Galaxy S21. You can enjoy realistic and immersive sound on your Galaxy Buds Pro, wherever you go with the 360 Audio featuring Dolby Head TrackingTM technology, which enables you to stay at the centre of the scene. For vloggers, you can clearly capture your voice and surrounding sound by synchronising the mics on your Galaxy Buds Pro and Galaxy S21. Galaxy Buds Pro also boast Game Mode, so when reduced audio latency is paired with Galaxy S21’s powerful performance and immersive display, you can take your gaming experience to the next level.
No matter how you use your Galaxy Buds Pro, you can do so without worrying about battery life. Enjoy up to 5 hours of playback with 13 hours of reserve power available in the wireless charging case. And, if you end up running out of juice, Galaxy Buds Pro’s Qi compatible wireless charging feature means five minutes of charge will give you an hour of extra play time, so you can get back to listening to your favourite tracks faster.
New Stylish & Purposeful Design
Galaxy Buds Pro aren’t just great to use; they also look great. Taking inspiration from Galaxy Buds Live’s innovative and iconic shape, Galaxy Buds Pro feature an updated, more ergonomic form factor. The shape of the canal-type earbuds improves sound quality, plus it looks less protrusive and more natural when in your ears. This new design also reduces the contact area between your ear and the bud, improving comfort and minimising a clogged-up feeling.
In addition, Galaxy Buds Pro are designed to give you added peace of mind. They are protected with an IPX7 water resistance rating , the highest standard of water resistance in the Galaxy Buds line. And now, worrying about losing an earbud is a thing of the past. Tracking down your Galaxy Buds Pro is simple. When open, you can use the SmartThings app and your buds will emit a beep to help with your search, or use Bluetooth® to find their exact location.
It works with Maps to give you directions when you’re looking for them, and with Offline finding, you can find the last location they were used, even if they’re no longer connected to your phone.
Galaxy Buds Pro were also built to help cut down on waste – using 20 percent environmentally conscious Post-Consumer Materials (PCM).
Starting on 29th January 2021, Galaxy Buds Pro will be widely available in Samsung channels and major UK retailers. Galaxy Buds Pro come in three stunning colours: timeless Phantom Black, Phantom Silver, and Phantom Violet to match with your Galaxy S21 5G Series device.
