Samsung has released an interesting accessory for its new Galaxy Buds Pro headphones. The new charging case will appeal to those who look back with nostalgia when phones were small, foldable and have push-buttons.
The case is most reminiscent of the famous Anycall T100 and Anycall E700 clamshell phones of the early 2000s.
The accessory is available as a gift for Galaxy Buds Pro buyers in South Korea until January 31st. The case can be purchased separately for about $30.
So far, Samsung is taking pre-orders for the Galaxy Buds Pro. Open sales will begin in the first regions on January 29, and in other markets on February 5.
Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro flagship headphones
In addition to its flagship Galaxy S21 smartphones (Galaxy S21, S21+ and S21 Ultra), Samsung introduced the Galaxy Buds Pro fully wireless headphones.
Samsung claims the Galaxy Buds Pro have new functionality while retaining a sleek and stylish look. Support for 360 Audio surround sound technology with Dolby Head Tracking technology is in use. The headphones are 20% recycled.
Equipped with an 11mm woofer for deep bass and a 6.5mm tweeter for richer treble, the new Galaxy Buds Pro delivers great sound.
An advanced 3-microphone system with a bone conduction vibration sensor ensures clear voice transmission, separating it from background noise. Wind Shield technology is also available to protect against wind noise. The special design helps to make the voice clearer even in strong winds.
Samsung talks about the most intelligent active noise canceling system ever used in TWS headphones. The background noise can be reduced by 99%, and the Ambient Sound mode lets you hear what is happening around.
The earbuds can automatically switch from your Galaxy smartphone to your Galaxy tablet based on usage – without having to switch manually. When fully charged, they can play up to 8 hours in playback mode, and when using the case with wireless charging function, the autonomy of the headphones can be extended by another 20 hours. If you use a noise reduction system, then this time is reduced to 5 and 13 hours, respectively. Just 5 minutes of charging is enough for an hour of use.
The build meets the degree of protection IPX7. The Galaxy Buds Pro comes in three colors – Phantom Black and Phantom Silver, and Phantom Violet. The earbuds costs $199.99 in the US, and it will become available in select markets starting January 15th.
