mobile tech review and these are the samsung galaxy buds too i know there have been a lot of buzz in samsung's storied history making wireless earbuds and doubtless some of you opted with your pre-order for the fold three and the flip three to get these as part of your 200 pre-order credit so this time around we have a shiny exterior white casing and it seems like every other model year they switch between matt and and this and inside you have your choice of graphite which is what we have almost black but well graphite very dark gray and the buds are shiny by the way unlike the case and you can get them in white lavender and olive green which isn't a really deep dark dank olive green it's kind of a nice light playful olive if you can say such a thing so these are 149 and they have active noise cancelling so that puts them at about the appropriate price range for buds with active noise cancelling they're a bit less expensive than the 190 99 buds pro list price but street right now those are around 179 and they're missing just a few of the features but they're the smallest and the lightest yet and it does make a difference in comfort we're going to look at them now so the fact that they are smaller and lighter it's just amazing i mean your ear canals are tiny things right just little changes do make a big difference i thought the buds pro were pretty comfortable but these are just a lot more comfortable and even though i might like a few of the features of the buds pro better i kind of gravitate towards these because of the comfort and they stay in the ear really well they come it's the usual thing they come with three sets of silicone ear tips medium or unstalled by default i have small ear canals the things you tell thousands of people when you're a youtuber right small ear canal so i use the small size on mine and there's a new feature in the software the galaxy wearable app you don't have to have a galaxy branded phone to use at any android phones compatible and it gives you a fit test it plays a small pleasant tone and then it lets you know and you know i thought i had fit them in there pretty well and they said no no no so i adjusted them a little bit like ah and then the bass improved on them so that's quite nice as we've seen before with samsung buzz you have two drivers so you have woofers and tweeters and that makes for pretty good sound quality the original og very first buds i wasn't too impressed particularly with the bass on those but they've been getting better and better buds plus sounded pretty good and these certainly and adding active noise cancelling helps to sound really good do they sound as good as buds pro not quite for the clarity of mids and highs but it's definitely the same on the bass if anything these might be a little bit more bass heavy but these sound pretty good but for example if you're listening to montero and you know there's a background clapping thing going on it sounds slightly harsh on these versus really spot on with the buds pro or with sony's wireless earbuds fourth gen in terms of call quality you have three microphones two outer one inner and then a voice adaptive pickup sensor as well call quality on this is very good and the ai or active audio pickup that it does helps isolate the background noise around you away so people don't hear it when you make calls so good job that it's amazing how sometimes earbuds really don't do a great job with call quality these have bluetooth 5.2 and they if you're using samsung products you can have them automatically switch from product to product so you've got a tab s7 you got a galaxy phone maybe even have a galaxy laptop it's not true multi-point but it does work pretty well and for codec support we have the usual sbc aac which is great it plays nicely with iphones that means and it's bluetooth so of course you could pair them to iphones if you want just won't be an app for it there's no aptx here by the way and we have samsung's own scalable codec which is a pretty high quality codec that does work with well galaxy products the bluetooth connection has been reliable and fine with me pretty good range about 20 25 feet or so away from the phone typically i don't i keep the front of my pocket when having a phone call anyway but also body does not block the transmission or anything like that so that part's good when it comes to this versus the buzz pro once again the buzz pro add 360 degree audio only with samsung phones so that's a you know virtual surround sound thing i don't think that's going to be a deal breaker for the ambient noise levels that you can choose from this has three and the buds pro have four so there's your other difference in terms of battery life they're actually pretty similar so this does have active noise cancelling and it's fairly effective it blocks out machine noise and hum pretty well and the ambient noise i actually like the way it handles it for example airpods pro are supposed to have a great transparency mode which is ambient noise and i find that the central air conditioning blowing sounds more pronounced and digitized on the airpods pro than it does here with the ambient noise cancelling you can turn off noise canceling completely if you want to have it on or have it in ambient mode so you have your choices there and obviously if you do turn on noise canceling be it ambient or just full on you'll get a little bit better sound quality because the sounds around you won't be competing it's not as good at blocking out voices in the room so if you're using it for a bunch of chatterbox people in the office it might not be as effective as if you just want to block out airplane noise or bus noise the buds have an equalizer and it's not like a equalizer curve so it's a bunch of different presets i typically leave it on dynamic which with the og buds it was not really very good but now it actually is pretty good at detecting the kind of music and giving you a good experience but you can play with those settings and find something that you like one buds pro feature that lacks which might be good at least in my case is the buzz pro have this feature where they can automatically pick up if somebody's talking near you and lower the audio doesn't meter completely makes it very low so that's absolutely great as long as you're not like me and i sing along the music all the time so i was triggering that feature and i had to turn it off also again chatterboxes or tv if you happen to walk in the room and somebody's playing the tv and there's dialogue going on it might fold them so this doesn't have that feature at all so you won't have to worry about that of course there's touch controls which you can leave on or turn off usually a quick tap will pause the music press and hold to switch between noise cancelling modes and as always these earbuds are so teeny it's not really samsung's fault but it's pretty darn hard for things that you constantly probably adjusting in your ear to not accidentally activate some of those controls so it's up to you if you want to turn them on or off samsung does have a widget that you can have on the home screen so it gives you quick access to turning touch controls on and off and changing your noise canceling modes which is kind of convenient and there's a galaxy watch 4 app for those of you really are into the ecosystem that's sampling samsung's offering in 2021. one thing i will say and this is just me but i'm probably not alone there's a reason why the buds beans which are really called the buds live why samsung made them because those are the ones that don't seal your ear canals i'm i get clogged eustachian tubes and i'm not really comfortable with earbuds that really seal you and these are well earbuds that do really seal you a little bit more so than the buds pro so you know who you are if you can't take that sensation or if it does bother your your eustachian tubes or your prone to ear infections keep that in mind again this is a problem that's inherent with many earbuds that do have a pretty good seal when it comes to battery life they claim five hours and i found that was pretty much on target and it's pretty much average for noise canceling buds and you'll get longer if you turn off the noise canceling and as always the case has a battery in it too so that will give you an additional 13 hours of play time and it's the usual deal if you plug them into a usbc charger and it comes with a usb c cable but no charger you have to supply that yourself anyway it takes about five minutes to get hour play time and they do also support wireless charging and they work with reverse wireless charging on samsung phones so in terms of the competition i mean there are airpods but i don't think this is the same market probably if you've got an iphone you're probably going to go with airpods or airpods pro if you're uh android user you would be considering these so i'm not going to really get into the whole airpod thing too much but we do have samsung's own model we have the galaxy buds plus which are the outgoing model those do not have active noise canceling they're 99 dollars so if you want active noise cancelling it's a no-brainer to get the buds too they're a little bit bigger and a little bit heavier also now the buds pro i think i've talked enough about those you know what you're getting for your extra 40 or so depending on what price is around you and you know if you're a little bit more into the audio file thing or he likes 360 degree audio that sort of thing i can still see going for the buds pro and lastly there are other brands too like anker's soundcore liberty 2 pro those are really good sounding buds and they're 150 also they don't have active noise cancelling but they seal the ear so well and they did the acoustics so all that i didn't feel like i was really not enjoying the experience without it but if you do need to use them in noisy places that would be something to consider as well so there you have it the samsung galaxy buds to 150 bucks give or take and really they're doing a good job here they've just kind of found the sweet spot for really small really comfortable active noise canceling that's pretty effective good call quality and pretty good audio on
