More expensive than the Galaxy Buds 2, sold below 200 euros, the Buds 2 Pro should establish themselves as an alternative to Apple AirPods. Headphones from the American giant currently dominate the market, with more than 25% of the share. For the moment, Apple’s offer consists of AirPods 3, sold at 199 euros, and AirPods Pro, at 279 euros. In this context, the Buds 2 Pro could represent a lower cost alternative to the AirPods Pro, whose renewal is imminent.
24-bit sound for the Buds 2 Pro
To distinguish itself from the competition, Samsung is reportedly planning to add 24 bit sound to his headphones. This novelty promises to improve the sound quality of music tracks. Thanks to this addition, Samsung could add a label like “HD audio” or “Hi-Res Audio” on its headphones.
Moreover, we expect to find there a active noise reduction, a transparency mode that allows you to perceive surrounding noise, and a multi-device connection. We imagine that Samsung could inaugurate an improved version of intelligent noise reduction, which activates or deactivates transparency as needed. But, for the moment, the specifications of the headphones remain a mystery.
On the design side, the Buds 2 Pro will be similar to their predecessors, show 3D renderings signed by leaker Evan Blass. Samsung is betting on a very classic aesthetic with an in-ear tip silicone. They come with a charging case that helps extend battery life. The brand is expected to offer the Buds 2 Pro in white, purple, and gray colorways.
Presentation on August 10, alongside the Galaxy Z Fold 4, Z Flip 4 and Watch 5
For the record, Samsung should present the Galaxy Buds 2 Pro from August 10, 2022. During an Unpacked conference, the Seoul giant will mainly announce a new generation of folding smartphones, the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Z Flip 4, and the Galaxy Watch 5.
9to5Google also mentions the Galaxy Watch 5 in its report. According to leaks collected by the media, the connected watches will be offered in gold, gray and silver colors for the 40 mm model and in blue, gray and silver for the 44 mm model.
The Galaxy Watch 5 Pro, the top-of-the-range model, will be available in black and gray. Official images uploaded by 91Mobiles (see above) corroborate the information from 9to5Google. If Samsung sticks to its habits, pre-orders of all the products presented will open in the wake of the conference.
