Samsung’s New Galaxy Buds Pro, Now with Active Noise Control and A More Ergonomic Design

In addition to the unveiling of the Samsung Galaxy S21 Series, the Korean tech giant has upped their audio game with the launch of their latest Galaxy Buds Pro — a newly-designed pair of earbuds which offers an immersive sound, superior call quality, intelligent Active Noise Control (ANC), and enhanced connectivity across the Samsung Galaxy ecosystem.

Here’s a closer look at what you can expect from the Galaxy Buds Pro.

Taking inspiration from the Galaxy Buds Live that was released in 2020, the Galaxy Buds Pro features an updated, more ergonomic form factor for the earbuds alongside the similar box shape for the charging case. Each earbud has also been polished to a high gloss with a matte interior which feels soft and comfortable against your skin, even when you’ve worn them for long periods.

The updated shape of the canal-type earbuds offers a less protrusive design that not only helps to improve the sound quality but also looks more natural when you stick them in your ears. This new design also helps to reduce the contact area between your ear and the bud, giving you better comfort and minimising any clogged-up feeling.

Apart from being great for daily use, the Galaxy Buds Pro is your ideal companion for the gym with its IPX7 water resistance rating which is the highest standard of water resistance in the Galaxy Buds line. 


The Galaxy Buds Pro offers a dynamic and balanced sound to give you the best audio experience yet.

The Galaxy Buds Pro offers a more comprehensive sound featuring an 11-millimetre woofer for deeper bass and a 6.5-millimetre tweeter for a crisp treble with minimum distortion. This enables the earbuds to deliver the best audio experience yet, offering a dynamic and balanced sound that lets you enjoy your music as the artist intended, anytime, anywhere.

Apart from producing quality audio for music, the Galaxy Buds Pro is able to give you the best call quality by ensuring you are heard as clearly as possible through separating your voice from unwanted surrounding sounds using the three built-in microphones and Voice Pickup Unit (VPU).

To make phone calls even clearer, Samsung has integrated its new Wind Shield technology into the earbuds with a specially designed chamber and mesh that filters out wind interference.


Galaxy Buds Pro delivers the best audio experience yet with ANC and Ambient Sound features.

When you want to tune out the world around you to relax, the Galaxy Buds Pro can deliver with their most intelligent ANC capabilities that include the reduction in background noise of up to 99% and fine-tuning to your preferred level. 

Together with four levels of Ambient Sound, you can adjust and personalise the sound according to your needs such as amplifying nearby sound by more than 20 decibels — an ideal feature for multitaskers who are either working from home or going for a run around the neighbourhood.

Apart from the features working on its own, ANC and Ambient Sound has the ability to automatically work together, adapting to your surroundings to optimise your audio experience. This means that the Galaxy Buds Pro can recognise when you’re speaking, instantly switching between cancelling nearby sounds and amplifying your voice. The earbuds will also turn down your music when you want to talk, even if you are using Ambient Sound or have ANC turned off.


The Galaxy Buds Pro allows you to toggle your earbuds connection without manual adjustments.

As an integral addition to the Galaxy ecosystem, the Galaxy Buds Pro gives you the ability to toggle your earbuds connection without manual adjustments.

For example, if you’re watching a video on your Galaxy Tab and receive a call on your Galaxy smartphone, the all-new Auto Switch feature will pause the video on your tablet and let you answer your call. Once the call is over, your earbuds will automatically switch back to the audio from the video on your tablet.


Get up to 8 hours of audio on the Galaxy Buds Pro when fully charged.

When fully charged, you can get up to 8 hours of playback on the Galaxy Buds Pro, with an additional 20 hours of reserve power that is available in the wireless charging case. Even as you use the ANC feature, you can still enjoy 5 hours of playback with up to 13 hours available from the case.


The Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro retails at $308 and is available for pre-order in Phantom Black, Phantom Silver and Phantom Violet online from 15 January 2021 via the Samsung Online Store, the Samsung Official Store on Lazada and Shopee, and KrisShop.

The earbuds will officially be available in Singapore from 29 January 2021.
