(Pre-order from now until 28 January 2021, and you can claim a free Samsung Wireless Charging Pad. More info on that here: https://www.samsung.com/uk/galaxy-buds-preorder/#Gifts , and a guide on how to claim your gift here: How to claim your gift when you pre-order the Galaxy Buds Pro.)
Now, I love my Buds. (And my Buds Live... I might be addicted to Buds...) But the Buds Pro are all about next-level audio experience and control, an even more seamless experience across Galaxy devices, and ergonomic design without compromising style.

Hey @AntS ,
thanks for sharing!
You didn't mention that Galaxy Buds Pro are fully compatible with Bixby so you can talk to the voice assistant on your Bixby-enabled Galaxy Smartphones / Tablets even if they are far away from you (this feature may increase battery usage of the earbuds).
Also, with the Galaxy Buds Capsule being released to Bixby-enabled Smartphones / Tablet, you can ask Bixby to change Galaxy Buds settings (like ANC or Ambient mode) or to check earbuds battery life without looking or touching the screen! 😋
See you soon!

@AntS The Galaxy Buds Pro do sound pretty amazing and certainly take the technology to the next level ,even if not everyone will wish to upgrade at the moment. I am currently using ANC Bluetooth Noise cancelling Headphones mind you. In particular Deeper bass and crisp treble , the integration of ANC and ambient mode and the Seamless experience with Auto switch should be most rewarding.
@danitudi971 yes thanks for mentioning the compatibility with Bixby which would be beneficial (not withstanding the trade off in battery life)
Cnet say they may not always be a perfect fit though https://www.cnet.com/news/samsung-galaxy-buds-pro-review-mostly-impressive-but-fit-isnt-perfect/ Gets a more impressive review in The Verge though the one downsize may be the reduced Battery Life (though will not always be an issue) https://www.theverge.com/2021/1/15/22231848/samsung-galaxy-buds-pro-review
For a comparison with Buds Live see here https://www.samsung.com/uk/audio-sound/galaxy-buds/galaxy-buds-live

@Hackett: If you pre-ordered from samsung.com/uk then you would have been required to select your gift options at the purchase stage. If your order was placed via the Samsung Ireland Online Shop, or any other participating retailer, then you can claim your gifts via the Benefits Section of the Samsung Members app upon receipt of your S21 Ultra. I hope this helps.
