Earlier this year, South Korean manufacturing giant, Samsung, released its Galaxy Buds. At the time, this wireless Bluetooth headset was available in black, white and yellow colours. Now, the company has quietly added a new silver colour version. The new version of the Samsung Galaxy Buds is currently available on its Indian official website. The top surface of this new version does not use a solid colour like the other versions. It uses a kind of Monet colour which makes it colourful. The Samsung Galaxy Buds wireless headset comes with a $129.99 price tag. On Jingdong, the Chinese version cost 999 yuan ($140). This headset is listed for ₹9,990 ($140) on Samsung India website.
The Samsung Galaxy Buds headset battery compartment is ellipsoidal with a built-in battery life of up to 6 hours. The headphone’s storage charging box supports wireless charging. Thus the Galaxy S10 can charge the earphone box by reverse wireless charging. The buds themselves are small circular in-ear type devices. It comes with silicone ear-tips to fit and stay in the ear. The buds seem bulky to look at but initial reviews say they are pretty comfortable.
The process of connecting your buds to any Samsung device seems similar to that of the Apple Airpods. Placing the buds near the device and opening up the case instantly pairs it to the device. The top surface of the buds is touch-sensitive and it can manually establish connect in case it does not connect automatically. The Samsung Galaxy Buds headset is tuned by AKG’s acoustic experts. It also features the Samsung Smart Voice Assistant Bixby, which seamlessly interfaces with Samsung devices.
The buds run on Bluetooth 5.0 and have a 58mAh of battery while the case host a 252 mAh battery. It also has a proximity sensor thus it can detect if the headset is no longer in the ear.
