The Galaxy Buds Pro aren’t official yet, but a YouTube channel featured the headphones in a video. It claims that Samsung’s next accessory doesn’t offer the same level of active noise reduction as the AirPods Pro. The Galaxy Buds Pro should be made official on January 14, 2020, at the same time as the Galaxy S21.
Earlier today, we published an article on the presentation date of Samsung’s Galaxy S21 series. The three smartphones, Galaxy S21, S21 + and S21 Ultra, will be fully unveiled during the next “Unpacked” conference which will take place on January 14, in a week and a half. We will obviously follow the event live, with many articles to come on our site, but also on our YouTube channel.

The three smartphones will certainly not be the only ones to be formalized next week. We are also waiting for several accessories. The optional touch pen at 40 euros, for example, discovered earlier in the day thanks to a leak. But also new TWS headphones (True Wireless Stereo) to succeed the Galaxy Buds Live launched this summer. This new audio accessory should take the name of Galaxy Buds Pro.
The Galaxy Buds Pro were leaked just before Christmas 2020. We published an article on December 24 to report a leak from China revealing many details about the headphones. Autonomy of 28 hours (with the box). Certification IPX7 for protection against water. And a price that should come close to 230 euros.
Unboxing Galaxy Buds Pro 10 days in advance
Today the YouTube channel Digital slang posted on the Internet a unboxing on headphones. You can find this document at the end of the article. The tester on the screen presents the packaging, the box, the few additional accessories (the adapters for the ears and the charging cable) and the headphones. He finds the Buds Pro to be smaller than many other models of TWS headphones. He made a pairing of the headphones to test the audio quality.
And, in this area, the tester claims that the Buds Pro offer good quality active noise reduction, but not as qualitative as that of Apple’s AirPods Pro. Obviously, this is only a first opinion. Certainly that will be refined thanks to more extensive tests. And this opinion will be supplemented by those of other testers, of course. However, it’s worth noting that the AirPods Pro, despite being released over a year ago, still compare broadly with newer products.
Note also that AirPods Pro are sold in France at around 280 euros. Or 50 euros of difference with the envisaged price of Galaxy Buds Pro. The latter may therefore be a little worse in terms of noise reduction, but the price-performance ratio could be better. We’ll know more once the headphones are in our ears.
