New Samsung Galaxy Buds 2: Active noise cancellation comes to Samsung’s cheapest earbuds. Samsung’s new generation of fully wireless headphones brings active noise cancellation for a lot less money.
The onslaught of new Samsung products continues, now with a new generation of the South Korean company’s fully wireless headphones, the Galaxy Buds 2.
This installment arrives to take the baton from the successful Samsung Galaxy Buds and Samsung Galaxy Buds+ while inheriting some features from the high-end headset, Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro, launched earlier this year.
But the Galaxy Buds 2 are, of course, much cheaper than the Galaxy Buds Pro despite inheriting features such as active noise cancellation. Thus, Samsung wants to make these the next bestsellers in its catalog of sound devices.
Samsung Galaxy Buds 2 features and specs
The design of the Galaxy Buds 2 inherits more than one feature from the Buds Pro. The case, for example, has the same square shape with rounded corners, although in this case, it is only available in white and with a glossy finish, instead of matte.
Its interior has been colored in the same tone as the earphones, which are available in white, black, purple, and green. These have an in-ear format with silicone tips, and without “sticks” in the style of the AirPods or the Huawei FreeBuds 4. Its back integrates a touch panel designed to control audio playback. In addition, they are resistant to sweat under an IPX2 certification level.
As for audio, the headphones feature a sound system tuned by AKG that promises to be more natural, powerful, and with less distortion. Also, the speakers integrated into the pair of earphones enables the active noise cancellation system, inherited from the Galaxy Buds Pro.
In addition to this mode, the “Transparency” function is included, which allows us to hear what is happening around us by enhancing the sound of the environment captured by the microphones.
The battery of the headphones promises a battery life of up to 20 hours, which becomes 29 hours in case of not using the active noise cancellation system.
