Galaxy Buds Plus And AirPods Pro: Which One Is The Better Choice

While it may not create much of a hype like when the AirPods Pro made it to the market, Galaxy Buds Plus is by no mean a bad pair of earbuds

In its Unpacked Event this week, Samsung introduced its latest flagship smartphone lineup, consisting of the Galaxy S20, Galaxy S20 Plus, and Galaxy S20 Ultra.

The star of the show is the Galaxy Z Flip, Samsung’s retake on the idea of a foldable phone. Alongside these premium devices, the Galaxy Buds Plus was also introduced. While it may not create much of a hype like when the AirPods Pro made it to the market, Galaxy Buds Plus is by no mean a bad pair of earbuds.

Samsung has made no effort in differentiating the design of its 2020’s earbuds as they look much like their predecessors. Under the hood, the Galaxy Buds Plus comes equipped with an extra microphone, which is one of the most noticeable differences alongside the glossy finish of the charging case. Fit, size, and comfort remain unchanged.

Since Apple has determined to offer a tighter seal for users of the AirPods Pro by adding silicon ear tips, they look more like the Galaxy Buds Plus than they do earlier versions of AirPods. However, those who desire the noise canceling function will have no choice but to choose Apple’s latest earbuds as Samsung does not have the feature on theirs.

Samsung has improved the call and audio quality of its earbuds, along with the battery life. The Galaxy Buds Plus now can work for 11 hours before it needs to be recharged. The sounds seem to be better too.

While they might look a lot like the AirPods Pro, the function and price of Samsung’s earbuds are a closer match to the original AirPods. The Galaxy Buds Plus are priced at $149 (roughly Rs. 10,700), Rs. 713 cheaper than a pair of AirPods and Rs. 14,200 less expensive than AirPods Pro.

The touch control on Samsung earbuds can be used to skip, play, pause, and conjure the voice assistant. These are the features you will have when using the earbuds with an iPhone. If the connection is to an Android device, users will have the long press to launch Spotify.

Users have control over ambient sounds but most people will not notice much of a difference with this feature turned on. Other options include increasing treble or bass and make audio softer and more dynamic. There is no equalizer function, though.

The Galaxy Buds Plus - Android connection can also allow a function that will read you notifications, which you will not have with an iPhone. A similar feature can be found on iOS 13 and AirPods in which Siri reads you the content of messages.

Users of the Galaxy Buds Plus can connect it with several devices simultaneously, like with an Android phone and TV so that you can still hear notifications. However, this benefit is not applied to an iOS device.

In comparison with a pair of AirPods, Samsung earbuds seem to be better at the sound quality. However, if the best sounds are what you are looking for, you cannot go wrong with a pair of AirPods Pro. Comparing like that is not fair, we have to admit, because there is a Rs. 14,200 difference in the prices of these two models.

Users of Android might want to consider the Galaxy Buds Plus to take advantage of the functions only the connection of Galaxy Buds-Android can offer. Those who have an iPhone are still more beneficial with a pair of AirPods Pro.
