News presented by the Galaxy Buds
Samsung's Galaxy Buds headphones finally deliver interesting news to the sector, and it was about time. They have been the first to arrive this year and therefore, and because it is Samsung, they will be the subject of all the lights. The intention is to make a difference with the options currently available on the market. We see how Samsung bets on novelties, and they demonstrate with facts that there is still room for it. Good for Samsung.
It is not a novelty, and it is something that already exists in several models. The Galaxy Buds have the latest version of bluetooth 5.0 connection.A compatibility standard between devices that makes the connection stable and continuous at all times. Samsung chooses to equip its new headphones with a level of stability in the connection that provides the best user experience possible. The results support this connectivity, and the Korean firm adapts it to its new model.
La wireless charging It is one of the qualities filtered throughout these weeks. More positive points for this long-awaited gadjet that we really liked. Further, After confirming the reverse wireless charging in the recently known Samsung Galaxy S10, they become the ideal companion. Having wireless charging makes them another next-generation gadget. The words wireless buy more sense.
A novelty in the form of improvement is the increased battery performance. The new Samsung headphones feature a 58 mAh battery what do they promise up to 6 hours of use continuous. Much more than its predecessor. Furthermore, with a single 15 minute charge in its case we can enjoy an extra hour and a half of autonomy.
We have a touch sensitive surface with which we can interact to control music and calls. Besides the Samsung voice assistant, Bixby, It is included so you can enjoy artificial intelligence to the best of your ability.
High-end materials and design
Samsung has focused on offering a new version of its wireless headphones that transcend for many reasons. The Icon Xs did not achieve the results expected by the manufacturer. And the idea is that this does not happen again. Without being a poor quality headphones, their sales never got off the ground and it was stagnant almost from its launch.
Autonomy was the great Achilles heel of the Icon X. Although Living in time with the launch of the AirPods was not easy either. Now with a renewed model and much better equipped than anyone, Samsung puts all the cards on the table with the most complete headphones on the market to date.
We start from about high quality materialsand some finishes that live up to what we could expect. The choice of color is also wise. The white color looks great on this headphone model, and the look of the case / charger is very striking. We can find them in black, white and yellow colors.
The headphones have a format called intraural, of those that are almost completely inside the ears. A format that either you love it or you hate it. The "downside" they usually present is that optimal adjustment level is difficult to achieve for some. Not placed in the ear in the ideal way It is possible that the perception of the quality that we obtain has nothing to do with what the device is capable of offering.
To achieve a perfect fit and enjoy the sound they offer in all its splendor, Samsung includes three different sizes of the "rubbers"that go inside the ear itself. A detail that can make the difference between an excellent user experience and a mediocre one.
The Galaxy Buds a superior rival to the AirPods
Due to the absence in more and more devices of the 3.5 Jack headphone port, wireless headphones are being in recent times the most "necessary" gadjet. Having wireless headphones is something that we prioritize over many other accessories. And if we also do not need cables for charging, well, much better.
With the latest models of smartphones an awkward adapter is required to be able to use any headset. Taking into account the rate at which the market is evolving, cables are becoming obsolete. Samsung joins this trend by providing a quality model with enough features to not have any complex.
The Galaxy Buds depart from a very careful design that goes well by sight. Although we could say that they look like many other devices. It is appreciated that they do not have "inspiration" in the main rival to beat, the AirPods. Presenting a unique and genuine product is getting more and more complicated, and Samsung has made an effort to achieve this.
Considering their specifications, their design and everything they are capable of offering, we can say that AirPods have ceased to hold the throne. If they ever had it. In addition, it is important to know that the price of these new headphones will be below what we could expect. Its price will be 130 dollars, below what the current model of AirPods costs.
