Samsung offers the Galaxy Buds for a price of 149 euros, less than what you ask Apple for its AirPods. If you have asked for the Galaxy S10 in advance, you may even receive the free Galaxy Buds (as long as you have registered at the right time, now it is no longer possible).
Samsung remains true to its own design, the Galaxy Buds look a lot like the Gear Icon X. But that does not matter, the headphones have a small size, They are designed without frills and are very simple. Samsung offers the Galaxy Buds in the colors black, white and yellow. The two clearest options are very striking, and at the same time they are more discreet than the AirPods, which protrude a lot from the ear.
Although the purely visual aspect is a matter of taste, the Galaxy Buds far surpass Apple's AirPods in comfort of use by a Very simple reason: its silicone parts allow it to fit almost any ear, while AirPods are made of hard plastic ... If they do not fit, bad luck. In addition, with a weight of 23 grams per headset they are also light as a feather. But the Galaxy Buds are not only comfortable, they are also stable: during the two weeks that I have used them to write my review, they have not gone out of my ears once. Something we can not say about other wireless headphones.
Galaxy Buds are operated in two ways: through the application or by touch on the sides of the ears. The tactile operation is practical, the slight delay between the pulsation and the response is noticeable in all Bluetooth headsets, so it is nothing new. In the application you can adjust five different sound modes, applications for notifications, software updates (so far I have received two) and a few more things. The application is good to use the Galaxy Buds, and anyway it is mandatory.
The sound of the Samsung Galaxy Buds has seemed excellent to me during all the time I have used them. Whether it's music in all its facets, radio games or podcasts, the small headphones adapt to all situations. The volume is more than enough, if it were even higher It could break the eardrums. The quality of the Bluetooth connection depends on several factors, but normally it works well. If the signal weakens for a certain time, you will notice a slight echo which usually disappears after one or two seconds.
There is a but: although the sound is excellent when I listen to music, I do not like it much when I'm on the phone. TO often, my interlocutor He does not understand me, and it does not sound very natural in my ear either. Therefore, if you want to use the headset to make calls, you will have to keep looking, but in general similar Bluetooth headsets are not much better.
Samsung Galaxy Buds suppress environmental noise very reliably and protect the user well. This is nice in the office or on the train, but it can be dangerous in road traffic. If you want to listen more, you can activate the re-sending of environmental noise in the application. There can be adjusted if the voices should be excluded in the filter, and how strong the ambient noise should be. A very convenient function.
With the Galaxy Buds, Samsung promises an autonomy of six hours, a promise that I consider quite realistic. When the power is exhausted, the headphones can be reloaded into the case. And if you leave them there for half an hour, you will have enough for a few hours of music.
The cover of the Galaxy Buds can be charged wirelessly through Qi. It may take a little longer, but it's quite comfortable. If you use a Galaxy S10 or a Huawei Mate 20 Pro, you can even charge the headphones on the back of the phone, a very attractive advantage for many users.
After two weeks, I do not want to stop using the Galaxy Buds. In my opinion, wireless headphones They are worth up to the last cent of their price, if you are looking for this type of headphones. Larger-sized helmets are very unsuitable for sports, especially for running or cycling, and that's where the "True Wireless" play their winning cards. In my case, I can easily dispense with the measurement of the pulse in the ear, and anyway, ambitious athletes probably use a pulse watch, a chest strap or an activity follower.
