More compact headphones
Like their previous versions, the Samsung Galaxy Buds 2 Pro adopt these famous rounded shapes which allow them to fit well in the ear. But if this design is similar to that of the predecessors, a small change has lightened it all: these Buds 2 Pro are 15% more compact than the first Galaxy Buds Pro. Each earphone is also lighter, weighing 5.5g compared to 6.3g for the models released in 2021.
As we can see here, the Galaxy Buds 2 Pro have an in-ear format: they are thus housed in the auditory pavilion, which helps to provide good passive isolation. Three pairs of silicone tips are offered to adapt to each user.
Convincing active noise reduction
Passive insulation also ensures good active noise reduction. For this, the Galaxy Buds 2 Pro are equipped with three microphones integrated into each earphone. According to the brand, this noise reduction has been improved compared to the previous generation, and the result is rather convincing: ambient sounds will be filtered out. However, it will be a little below that offered by other competitors, especially when it comes to erasing surrounding noise to allow the user to isolate himself in a bubble. Otherwise, note that a Transparency mode will be available to, on the contrary, listen to the noises that surround us without having to remove the headphones from the ears.
A new audio codec is coming
One of the major novelties of the Galaxy Buds 2 Pro remains the addition of a new “Hi-Fi” codec, called SSC Hi-Fi, for Samsung Seamless Codec Hi-Fi. at a sampling rate of 24 bits, thus transmitting more sound data than with conventional codecs such as AAC or SBC. On the other hand, to take advantage of it, you will need to be equipped with a Samsung smartphone that runs on version 4 of One UI. It will also be necessary that the audio file listened to also offers a depth of more than 16 bits. In addition, spatial audio is in the game. However, this function is only compatible with Samsung smartphones and tablets equipped with at least version 4.1.1 of One UI. The headphones will then operate a virtualization to place the different instruments around you while listening to a title. The result is quite convincing.
Finally, regarding autonomy, the Galaxy Buds 2 Pro could be used, during our test, for 4:45 with a volume at 60%, by activating the active noise reduction and going through a connection by the AAC codec, before to go out. We therefore have a correct duration of use, but below what other headphones with active noise reduction offer. Regarding charging in the case, the headphones will be able to recover 30% of autonomy in 10 minutes of charging.
