The new Samsung Galaxy Buds+ almost adopt the same outlook design with the previously Galaxy Buds, which featured with specially crafted ergonomic in-ear and wingtips that fit comfortably in your ear for long-lasting wear. In addition, the compact charging case design is very easy to carry.

 

However, the popular AirPods Pro changes the design style of the previous generation AirPods 2, with earplugs, a shorter tail, and a narrowed charging box. The whole looks very harmonious. But on the whole, it is a little heavier than the Samsung Galaxy Buds+.

 

Samsung Galaxy Buds+ VS AirPods Pro: Noise Cancellation Comparison

The most important feature of AirPods Pro is to support active noise cancelling. At present, there are few TWS earbuds that support ANC function, only the AirPods Pro, HUAWEI FreeBuds 3, Honor Magic Earbuds (Also named as Honor FlyPods 3) and the upcoming BOSE Earbuds 700 support active noise cancellation. This also indicates that the ANC function will be the core competitiveness in the TWS earbuds industry in 2020.

 

The AirPods Pro has an incredibly light noise-canceling feature, AirPods Pro block out your environment so you can focus on what you’re listening to. AirPods Pro uses two microphones, an outward-facing microphone, and an inward-facing microphone, to create superior noise cancellation. By continuously adapting to the geometry of your ear and the fit of the ear tips, Active Noise Cancellation silences the world to keep you fully tuned in to your music, podcasts, and calls.

 

However, there is no active noise cancelling function but ENC in the new Samsung Galaxy Buds+, but the Transparency Mode is equipped, which is the same as the AirPods Pro. You can adjust how much of the outside world you let in to stay aware and connected. Turn up Ambient sound volume when you need to engage your surroundings without having to take your earbuds out.

Samsung Galaxy Buds+ VS AirPods Pro: Battery Life Comparison

Galaxy Buds+ 's charging box also supports Samsung's Wireless PowerShare function, and Galaxy phones that support wireless charging can be used as charging boards to provide wireless charging for Galaxy Buds+. As for the charging speed, Samsung Galaxy Buds+ supports charging for three minutes and listening to music for one hour.

 

AirPods Pro also supports wireless charging, which is very convenient. But the overall range is not as good as Samsung Galaxy Buds+. AirPods Pro has an up to 4.5 hours of listening time with a single charge, 5 minutes in the case provides around 1 hour of listening time or around 1 hour of talk time.


 

Summary and Suggestion

AirPods Pro has the advantage of active noise reduction, but the sound quality and battery life are not as good as Samsung Galaxy Buds+. On the contrary, Galaxy Buds+ has better sound quality but lacks active noise reduction function.

If you use an Android phone, the experience of using Samsung Galaxy Buds+ will be better. Because the AirPods Pro connection to Android phones will lack some features, the connection experience is not very good. Similarly, there will be a similar situation for Samsung Galaxy Buds+ to connect to iPhone. Please consider the demand carefully before buying.
