Buds pro have a strange issue with active noise canceling. One example: I'm in a bus and the sound is strong from the window, not covered by the ANC, but when I COVER earphone's top mic it completely covers with ANC. Basically whenever I have a louder sound coming from somewhere, ANC let's it in for some reason. I can take long train or bus drives or just be near louder sounds and it doesn't block it, for safety? Why?
The ANC only cancels about 80% of the sound for safety, that said eartips are critical to a good seal with any in ear devices.
I owned the GEN1 Buds Pro, ANC was very poor, I purchased the designed by Samsung foams tips, WOW sorted.
For info with the GEN2 Buds Pro there are no such after market tips, the ones I found made it worse, I find they work well as is, just use the ear fitting check in the app.
I do not work for Samsung or make Samsung Products but provide independent advice and valuable contributions.
