Samsung Buds are packing “two-way dynamic” speakers made in partnership with AKG, which Samsung says improves sound quality. The system includes a tweeter for a richer acute along with a woofer for bass sounds. With the added use of changeable ear tips, that should allow for sufficient noise isolation for most users.
While the originals were able to isolate sound too, as well as the AirPods Pro, the original AirPods doesn’t have this option. The Galaxy Buds+ are also the only product in the group to use two speakers, so the others have to instead offer admireable audio processing and other qualities to make up for the shortage.
Connectivity and Control
All of the products have support for Bluetooth 5.0, with the Galaxy Buds having single-device support and the Plus offering multi-device support. By contrast, the AirPods group use the H1 chip with iCloud Sync and Audio Sharing, with Apple’s self-designed wireless chip believed to offer better connectivity than standard Bluetooth connections.
While the AirPods are by birth controlled in iOS, Samsung has upped its game to try and garner support from iPhone users by offering an iOS app for the Galaxy Buds. In the first generation it was available only for Android, so bringing it to iOS for the Plus model is a sign it wants to expand its potential audience.
As described earlier, Samsung has improved the onboard battery life in the Galaxy Buds+ from 6 hours to 11 hours, which means it outpaces both the AirPods at 5 hours and the AirPods Pro at 4.5 hours with ANC enabled.
In all examples, you can spread the listening time using the supplied battery case. For the AirPods, this reaches 18 hours in total, rising to 24 hours for the AirPods Pro and the Galaxy Buds, again up from the uncommon seven hours the Galaxy Buds case provides.
This puts the Galaxy Buds+ in a situation where it can comfortably outlast the AirPods collective on usage life, but over the course of a day, it’s at the same level as the AirPods Pro. All it means is you charge it up fewer times.
For fast recharging, Samsung’s edged out the opponents with the Galaxy Buds+, with three minutes of charging equating to an hour of playback. The AirPods offers 3 hours after 15 minutes of charge, and the AirPods Pro get to 1 hour after five minutes.
