Leading a category of consumer electronics is not easy, let alone if that category is mobile telephony. However, having such a position gives you a window to the users to be able to present new products.
This is what Samsung took advantage of with the Samsung Galaxy S21 that it announced today to also unveil its new wireless headset, the Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro.

Developing the design
The aesthetics of these headphones are reminiscent of the Galaxy Buds Live, but also the Samsung Galaxy Buds +. It seems that Samsung wanted to get the best of both and created a new design line.
These headphones have the incredible battery life of their predecessors, with up to 8 hours of battery life for listening to music and up to 28 hours if we add the one that the crate gives us.
Also, they have IPX7 resistance, so we can use them in the rain. And they also include wireless charging.
A very special noise cancellation
But the star feature of these headphones is noise cancellation. Not surprisingly, they have ANC; but a very particular one.
The noise-canceling headphone trap: not everyone has the same thing
Noise cancellation has become one of the trending extras for headphones. However, be very careful, because there is a catch.
The Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro have a feature that allows us to turn on noise cancellation and temporarily turn it off when someone is talking to us and we are answering.
This way we take advantage of the transparency mode without having to activate anything on the mobile or touch the headset. And in the Galaxy S21 and other Samsung devices we will have a smart device switch available, so that even if we use them with a tablet, they will go straight to mobile if a call comes in.
Another plus is the constant active listening of Samsung’s voice assistant, Bixby, which doesn’t need to be summoned with a press. To this must be added the Audio 360 function with 5 Dolby Head Tracking technology which allows you to obtain surround sound.
The Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro have an 11-millimeter woofer for deeper bass and a 6.5-millimeter tweeter.
Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro price and availability
These headphones will go on sale January 29 in Europe and other markets at a price of 229 dollars.
