Effective active noise reduction
In terms of design, the Samsung Galaxy Buds 2 are in line with Buds Live or some Buds Pro. They therefore also adopt an in-ear format while roundness, which will still remain very comfortable in the ear, in particular thanks to their contained weight of 6.3 grams per headset.
Like its predecessors, the Galaxy Buds 2 feature active noise reduction. As a reminder, this technology allows the user to be isolated thanks to the reduction of surrounding sounds. If the headphones of the Korean brand do not offer as good a result as the unbeatable ones AirPods Pro and others Sony WF-1000XM4, they will still provide a really convincing noise reduction. Note that a transparency mode will also be available for, on the contrary, to be able to listen to the noises in the surroundings.
Audio quality at the rendezvous
In addition to active noise reduction, the Galaxy Buds 2 stand out with a balanced, well-detailed and warm sound reproduction, in particular thanks to its two dynamic transducers. However, if Samsung’s signature doesn’t really suit you, you can always modulate different presets available on the Galaxy Wearables app.
The Galaxy Buds 2 are also equipped with three microphones each for calls and recording videos. In a calm environment, your voice will be well centered and you will not have to suffer from parasitic echoes. In a noisier environment, the headphones will adapt to noise pollution so as not to pass them on to your interlocutor.
Finally, regarding autonomy, Samsung promises an autonomy of 5 hours with the noise reduction activated. For its part, the case will offer 20 hours of use, and up to 29 hours without active noise reduction. According to our test, we were able to recover 100% of the battery in just 38 minutes. These headphones will charge via USB-C, and will also be compatible with wireless charging.
A practical Samsung Pad
Speaking of wireless charging, the pack also contains a Samsung Pad, a Qi certified wireless charger, which we have already recommended in our lines. Its power can climb up to 9 W, and thanks to this, you will be able to charge not only your Galaxy Buds, but also your Galaxy smartphones and Galaxy Watch connected watches without any problem. Its compact and discreet look will also facilitate its transport.
