Samsung presents Galaxy Buds Pro with IP rating and ANC

In connection with today’s Unpacked event, Samsung presented in addition to the S21 series new headphones in the Buds series, which include True Wireless headphones. The new headphones have been named “Galaxy Buds Pro” and offer a number of new features in comparison with last year’s Buds +.

The biggest news is support for the ANC, or or active noise reduction, for those who need to be able to shut out the outside world to focus entirely on the music, the series or whatever it may be.

Galaxy Buds Pro has a recommended retail price of SEK 2,490 and has a sales start already on January 15 in “selected markets”. Whether this applies to Sweden specifically is not clear.

The color options are three in number; Black, Silver and Violet, with the names Phantom Black, Phantom Silver and Phantom Violet.

Galaxy Buds Pro is said to be able to offer up to eight hours of playback, or five hours with ANC activated, and via the included case you can charge the headphones for up to 20 hours of additional use.

Samsung further announces that with just five minutes of fast charging, you can top up Buds Pro with up to a full hour of listening.

Unlike previous headphones in the Buds series, the Pro model is the first to offer IPX7 rating, which means better protection against weather and wind. More specifically, IPX7 means that the device can be immersed in up to one meter of water for up to 30 minutes.


According to Samsung, the new headphones do not mean that Galaxy Buds + will be phased out, but both Galaxy Buds + as well as Galaxy Buds Live will continue to be sold.
