Here's all you need to know about Samsung's Galaxy Buds+
Fresh from February's Samsung Unpacked 2020 event, the tech company launched a brand new product: the Samsung Galaxy Buds+.
If you haven't guessed from the product name, Galaxy Buds+ (and Galaxy Buds) are Samsung's answer to wireless bluetooth earphones and take on the likes of Apple's AirPods and AirPods Pro.
They're the successor of last year's Galaxy Buds and as you can expect, some changes have been made. Here, we take a look at the specifications and changes.
First off, like the Galaxy Buds, Galaxy Buds+ come in three colours: white, black and blue. No yellow colour this time round, although the Galaxy Buds are still available if you wish to have that colour.
Next up, and properly the most important thing, are the speakers. Samsung have made some changes here. They have fitted 2 speakers (Woofer + Tweeter [2 way dynamic]) which means you'll have improved sound quality.
The Woofer is for rich and powerful bass and the Tweeter is for clear high notes.
Onto the microphones now and Samsung have added a third one to the Galaxy Buds+, compared to the 2 on the original Galaxy Buds. There are 2 on the outside of each of the Buds+ and one on the inside. The extra mic will mean better call quality and those on the other end of the phone will hear you more clearly.
Battery life next and this is a massive improvement compared to the Galaxy Buds. Each of the Buds will last an amazing 11 hours vs the original 6 hours. With the Buds+ charging case in tow, you'll get a fantastic 22 hours of battery life.
Still on the subject of charging, when you open up the charging case to connect your Buds+, you'll be shown a graphic of each earbud and their remaining battery life as a percentage, which is what you also see on the Galaxy Buds. But as well as this, you'll also see the percentage battery life of the case too, which we think is another great and much needed feature. We hope, that if possible via software updates, to see this on the original Galaxy Buds too.
Of course, like the Galaxy Buds, the + version features ambient sound and wireless charging - you can charge the Buds+ via your S20 too, thanks to Wireless PowerShare. You can also charge the case up using a USB-C cable, which is included in the box.
You can change volume and adjust EQ settings via the Galaxy Wearable app which is pre-installed on Samsung devices. Buds+ also work great with iOS devices, since you can have the same experience as Samsung users by downloading the Galaxy Wearable app from the App Store.
You can purchase the Samsung Galaxy Buds+ direct from Samsung's website for £159.00
