Samsung Galaxy Buds 2 Pro is ready to take on Apple AirPods Pro

Samsung’s Galaxy Bud2 Pro is a surprisingly aggressive reinvention of the Buds line. Rather than jumping away from the Buds Pro design, these Bluetooth earbuds clearly started with the Galaxy Buds 2 look and then took an Exacto blade to the body, cutting out bits and pieces to make room for better ones. microphones and sensors to improve fit, audio and noise canceling capabilities. That Samsung did this while making the earbuds 15% smaller than the previous Buds is impressive.

The result is an already impressive pair of buttons that, in my brief hands-on, gave a great fit, especially good active noise cancellation (ANC) and rich audio.
