Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro experience: still the strong one once

Just entering 2021, Samsung took the lead in releasing its new flagship headset, Galaxy Buds Pro. Under the influence of the top-tier AirPods Pro, the sales and market position of TWS headsets in the market have also increased year by year. Samsung has also bet a lot of experience on the Galaxy Buds series, and Buds Pro has also gained a good voice in the market after it went on sale, so today we will take a look at the charm of the new Galaxy Buds Pro.

Let’s first look at the appearance design. In recent years, the Samsung Buds series of headphones have always changed and changed in appearance design. From the “waist-shaped” Buds Live to the current Buds Pro, the wearing experience is indeed getting better and better year by year. , But I always feel that “it will change again next year.”

But one thing to say, this year’s Buds Pro is still very comfortable to wear. The overall appearance is a water drop cone shape. The silicone plug of the earphone can go deep into the ear canal, while the outer earphone cavity part is It can fill the cochlea part and fix it with the help of the part deep into the ear canal, so that it will not fall off during sports wear.

After wearing it for a long time, for users like me who have a somewhat “unpopular” ear shape, the pressure of the ear bone position of the Buds Pro is also significantly weaker than that of the AirPods Pro, which is also determined by the design of the two headphones. However, the volume of the corresponding Buds Pro cavity part will appear abrupt to some female users with small ears.

In detail, the microphone grid on the outside of the headset can reduce external wind noise. In actual tests, the wind noise coefficient of Galaxy Buds Pro is indeed smaller than that of AirPods Pro when it is windy outdoors, and the sense of purity of listening is better.

There are three microphones and a voice pickup unit inside a single headset, which can be used to record internal and external noises and perform noise reduction processing, and can also realize the voice detection function, which we will introduce in detail later.

Let’s take a look at the headset box of Galaxy Buds Pro. This year’s headset box adopts a square design style. The size and structure are very similar to the macaron cakes that girls like. There is nothing to hold in your hand or carry around. This is worthy of praise.

What we got this time is the Fanmeng purple color scheme, which also echoes the color scheme of the S21 mobile phone. Under the frosted texture of plastic, Fanmeng purple color matching will show a very elegant temperament, which forms a clear contrast with the current black and white TWS headset colors, and it can definitely win the favor of a lot of female users.

However, the Buds Pro earphone box also has its shortcomings. On the one hand, the two earphones are too similar to distinguish between the left and right, and they are often placed in the wrong position, causing the earphones to fail to cover the box. On the other hand, the magnetic attraction inside the earphone box is weak. The earphone will fall off if you shake it. This requires extra care when taking out/putting the earphone back in daily.

In terms of functions, the Galaxy Buds Pro this year is mainly designed around more user-friendly daily use. For example, we can see in the Galaxy Wearable App that it is divided into two design directions: “active noise reduction” and “ambient sound”. There will be more detailed adjustments after selecting the corresponding mode.

Active noise reduction includes two noise reduction level adjustments, high and low. The two different levels are more about the filtering effect of external noise. If you are daily in the subway or public transportation, two noise reduction The level difference will be more obvious. There are four levels of environmental sound adjustment. The low-range environmental sound effect is somewhat similar to the listening effect when you don’t wear headphones. The higher the level depends on the sound gain of the radio microphone, like a sound amplifier in the ear Similarly, even in a very quiet office, a little bit of sound can be amplified to make the listening very clear.

In addition, under the control is the voice detection function we mentioned above. Buds Pro can rely on the built-in microphone matching algorithm to detect whether the wearer is talking with the person. When the dialogue is detected, it will turn on the ambient sound mode. You can still hear the other party clearly without taking off the headset, and it will return to the previous state within a few seconds after the algorithm detects the end of the conversation. For some brief daily communication, such as shopping or asking for directions, it will be very useful, but it is more polite to suggest that you take off your headphones.

An important upgrade point of this year’s Buds Pro is the addition of spatial audio function, which is currently the only TWS headset product that supports spatial audio technology. At present, both Tencent Video and iQiyi have HDR film sources that support spatial audio. In terms of experience, Buds Pro is slightly slower than AirPods Pro in terms of sound following speed when turning heads, but the overall sound surround effect and sound The spread angle is very good, which can create a good theater and effect.

For users with multiple Samsung devices, Buds Pro can also seamlessly switch between multiple devices under the same network. When the device has a sound playback requirement, the system will grab the headset connection channel and automatically switch to the playback device Above, the seamless switching experience will be very good for multi-device users.

In the sound part, Galaxy Buds Pro has built-in 11mm tweeter and 6.5mm woofer, and the overall sound effect is very good. The most intuitive embodiment is that it has a very sufficient sense of volume at 50% volume.

In addition, the sound tuning of Buds Pro is very balanced. The performance in low and mid frequencies can be said to be the benchmark product of the current TWS headset. It perfectly restores the melodious singing of Teacher Cai Qin in “Ferry”, and the low frequency part is strong and down. The hidden space is also very well controlled, which not only highlights the beauty of the human voice, but also gives plenty of room for display in the background of musical instruments.

In “Hotel California”, Buds Pro shows the separation characteristics of multiple instruments more clearly. Each instrument in the song has its own role. It shows its own timbre without any mixing, and the purity of the sound is very good. At the same time, the drum percussion and the sand hammer-like sound effect that appeared in the background are extremely clear, which deserves a good comment.

On the whole, Galaxy Buds Pro has almost shown a crushing situation in terms of sound compared with AirPods Pro. It also has an absolute sound advantage for other brands of TWS headphones. It can be seen that Samsung finally has a sound after acquiring the Harman Group. Aspects of adjustment style.

In the intelligent part, the multi-level noise reduction/ambient sound effects and 360° spatial audio are the unique product advantages of Buds Pro, especially for the current price of 1,299 yuan, which is very worthwhile. Looking at the current TWS headset market, in terms of high-end products, Apple’s AirPods Pro and Samsung Buds Pro are already comparable in product strength, and even Samsung is even better in many cases. This is also available to other Android phone brands. The high-end TWS headphones brought a lot of pressure.

I have to say that Samsung is still the king of the past.

Just entering 2021, Samsung took the lead in releasing its new flagship headset, Galaxy Buds Pro.
