Upcoming Galaxy Buds May Offer Noise Suppression To Compete With AirPods Pro


The successor headphones of the Samsung Galaxy Buds Plus could take advantage of a long-awaited benefit – noise cancellation – and launch alongside the Samsung Galaxy Note 20.

This is according to news report from Korea, which also supports claims that the new name will be the Galaxy Buds… Beans. Why? If you took the recent flight who revealed renderings of the new look, the answer is obvious: they have been redesigned to look like small beans and appear to fold back inside the ear canal.

Removing noise would put these Galaxy Buds on an equal footing with the Apple AirPods Pro, which launched in late 2019 with great soundproofing technology. The Galaxy Buds Plus, on the other hand, was launched at the beginning of 2020 alongside the Samsung Galaxy S20 series … but with appreciably no noise cancellation.

The leak revealed that the beans are 28 mm long, but this new report claims that they will be 13 mm wide and that the container will be 26 mm thick. Each headset will have two speakers and three microphones each, while retaining the 11-hour battery life managed by the Galaxy Buds Plus.

There is also a price leak – but treat with skepticism

Although these leaks are the first reports on these new headphones and should therefore be taken with a grain of salt, we are very skeptical about the alleged price. The report alleges that the beans will be set at 170,000 won, or about $ 140 (about £ 141 / AU $ 221). Since the Galaxy Buds Plus were priced at 179,000 won / $ 149.99 / £ 159 / AU $ 299, we doubt the hits will be the final price for beans.

There are a few other notes in the leak – namely, that Samsung could further reduce the so-called current size of the beans to improve their fit. But with a product at such an early stage, we expect it to change before we finally see it in real life.
