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

Evolving the design
The aesthetics of these headphones are reminiscent of the Galaxy Buds Live, but also the Samsung Galaxy Buds +. It seems that Samsung has wanted to take the best of both and has created a new design line.
These headphones have the incredible autonomy of their predecessors, with up to 8 hours of battery listening to music and with up to 28 hours if we add the one that the cargo box gives us.
In addition, they have IPX7 resistance, so we can use them in the rain. And they also include wireless charging.
A very peculiar noise cancellation
But the star feature of these headphones is noise cancellation. Unsurprisingly, they have ANC; but a very particular one.
The noise-canceling headphones trap: not everyone has the sameNoise cancellation has become one of the fashionable extras for headphones. However, be very careful, as there is a catch.
The Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro have a function that allows us to activate noise cancellation and temporarily override it when someone speaks to us and we respond.
In this way we take advantage of the transparency mode without having to activate anything on the mobile or touch the headphones. And in the Galaxy S21 and other Samsung devices we will have a smart device change available, so that even if we are using them with a tablet, they will jump directly to the mobile if a call comes in.
Another advantage is the permanent active listening of Samsung’s voice assistant, Bixby, which does not need to be invoked with a press. To this must be added the Audio 360 function with 5 Dolby Head Tracking technology that allows for surround sound.
The Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro have an 11-millimeter woofer for deeper bass and a 6.5-millimeter tweeter.
Price and availability of the Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro
These headphones will go on sale on January 29 in Spain and other markets at a price of 229 euros.
The entry New Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro with intelligent noise cancellation appears first in The Free Android.
