On Feb. 11, Samsung unveiled new Samsung Galaxy Z Flip and Samsung S20 phones in the United States, as well as a new generation of Galaxy Buds+ true wireless Bluetooth headsets. So what are the upgrades between the latest Samsung Galaxy Buds+ and the previous Galaxy Buds? Just take it easy! This post will make a detailed comparison of Samsung Galaxy Buds+ and Galaxy Buds.

Samsung Galaxy Buds+ VS Galaxy Buds: Sound Quality Compare

This category is always subjective, but we're reasonably confident the Samsung Galaxy Buds+ will sound better than the Galaxy Buds. Adding weight to this belief is the fact that the Galaxy Buds+ make use of dual dynamic drivers (a woofer and a tweeter), where the Galaxy Buds used only a single dynamic driver.

What'more, featuring sound by AKG delivered through a new speaker and microphone system, along with enhanced ambient sound settings, the Galaxy Buds+ are being touted as “studio-quality” earbuds by Samsung.

 

Samsung Galaxy Buds+ VS Galaxy Buds: Outlook Design Compare

From a design point of view, the Galaxy Buds+ looks almost the same as the original Galaxy Buds, but with an extra microphone, the charge box now has a smooth appearance rather than a matte appearance. The size, fit and comfort remain the same.

 

The Galaxy Buds+ is designed to be closer to the AirPods Pro than the Galaxy Buds, because soft silicone plugs can be inserted into the ear canal to provide a tighter seal, but the Galaxy Buds+ does not include active noise reduction technology.

 

Samsung Galaxy Buds+ VS Galaxy Buds: Battery Life Compare

When it comes to truly wireless earbuds, battery life is a big deal. Unlike most wireless headphones, which come equipped with an analog cable as a backup for when their batteries die, true wireless earbuds have no such safety net. So they need to last as long as possible between trips back to their charging case or, eventually, the power outlet.

 

When the Galaxy Buds debuted, their six hours of playback time was pretty impressive, and still tops the AirPods by an hour. However, we couldn't quite figure out why their charging case only held another six hours or so in reserve. Their total power of only 12 to 13 hours is right around half of the standard set by Apple (and followed by many others) of 24 hours or more.

 

The Samsung Galaxy Buds+ go way beyond on playback time at a huge 11 hours, which is impressive even by today's much longer standards. The charging case still only holds one full charge, but seeing that this brings the total time to 22 hours, it's a solid overall package.

 

We'd still like more, of course, but there's no question the Galaxy Buds+ have made a big improvement.

 

Samsung Galaxy Buds+ VS Galaxy Buds: Price Compare

If you’re determined to save some money, the Samsung Galaxy Buds will run you $129 at a regular price. The Galaxy Buds+ are expected to hit retail at $149, which is $20 more than the previous Galaxy Buds.

 

So that’s it for a look at the major feature differences between the Galaxy Buds and the Galaxy Buds+. Samsung Galaxy Buds+ VS Galaxy Buds, which one would you prefer?
