Samsung Galaxy Buds Vs. Galaxy Buds : Are the Ne
As we 8217;re about to see, you get quite a bit more for that $20, but based on price alone, the original Galaxy Buds take the crown here.
Winner: Galaxy Buds
When it comes to true 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.
We 8217;d still like more, of course, but there 8217;s no question the Galaxy Buds are a big improvement.
Winner: Galaxy Buds
This category is always subjective, of course, and we haven 8217;t had a chance to try the new Galaxy Buds . Still, new versions of audio products with degraded quality than their predecessors is a rarity, so we 8217;re reasonably confident the Galaxy Buds will sound the same as or 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 a single dynamic driver.
Plus, 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.
Is this a guarantee of better sound quality? No. But, if our experience with other dual-driver earbuds is any indicator, it 8217;s very likely the Galaxy Buds will offer better definition and clarity in both the high and low frequencies, and we might get better bass response, too.
We 8217;ll obviously wait until we hear the new earbuds in person before calling this one.
The Galaxy Buds will, however, come with additional wing and eartips that Samsung says will allow for a customizable wireless fit, depending on how you 8217;re using the earbuds. For now, we 8217;ll have to wait until we try them to determine how much of a difference-maker this new feature turns out to be.
Winner: Draw (we think)
Sadly, it looks as though Samsung 8217;s commitment to keeping the Galaxy Buds looking and feeling the same as their predecessors comes with an unfortunate caveat: Water resistance is also unchanged at IPX2.
There are a couple of other noteworthy changes worth mentioning for the Galaxy Buds when it comes to features. The new buds will be able to pair and swap between multiple Bluetooth devices, whereas the Galaxy Buds could only handle one.
An additional set of onboard mics might improve their call quality and Ambient mode (for hearing outside sounds) as well, and you 8217;ll be able to download an iOS app to get greater control over how the earbuds work with Apple devices.
So that 8217;s it for a look at the major feature differences between the Galaxy Buds and the Galaxy Buds .
We 8217;re not quite ready to declare the Galaxy Buds the absolute winner in this comparison yet (we 8217;ll wait until we 8217;ve tried them), but it 8217;s already apparent that for an extra $20 (or free with select new Samsung phones), Samsung has added a lot of improvements to the already impressive originals.标签：
