Introducing the Galaxy Buds Pro!

(Topic created on: 15-01-2021 10:50 AM)



Revealed at Unpacked 2021, the next gen earbuds, the Galaxy Buds Pro – available to buy from 29 January, or pre-order now!


(Pre-order from now until 28 January 2021, and you can claim a free Samsung Wireless Charging Pad. More info on that here: , 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.

Some highlights:


Next-level audio experience and control


  • Deeper bass and crisp treble with minimum distortion.
  • Voice Pickup Unit (VPU), and Wind Shield technology.
  • Intelligent Active Noise Control:
  • Active Noise Cancelling (ANC) enabling reduction of background noise by up to 99%
  • Ambient Mode can amplify nearby sounds to more than 20 decibels
  • ANC and Ambient Mode automatically working together, adapting to your surroundings to optimise your audio experience. For example, the Buds Pro can automatically recognise when you’re speaking, turn down what you’re listening to, and switches from ANC to Ambient Mode. Pretty cool, huh?


Seamless Experience with Auto Switch


  • Auto Switch automatically toggles your earbuds connection between your One UI 3.1 Galaxy smartphones and tablets based on your usage. So, if you’re receiving a call on your phone whilst watching a video on your tablet, you can answer the call on the Buds Pro, and once the call is over, the Buds Pro instantly switches back to your tablet and the video you were playing.


Design & Comfort


  • IPX7 water resistance rating.
  • Improved ergonomics improves comfort and sound quality: they’re less protrusive and more natural when in your ears; and reduces the contact area between your ear and the bud - improving comfort and minimising a clogged-up feeling.
  • SmartThings app and Bluetooth tracking in case you lose your Buds Pro. There’s Offline finding too, that’ll help you answer the question “Well, where did you last have them?” even if they’re no longer connected to your phone.

Hey @AntS ,


thanks for sharing! :smiling-face:


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   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) 


For a comparison with Buds Live see here 



I do not work for Samsung or make Samsung Products but provide independent advice and valuable contributions.

I love my Buds Live, and was excited about the Buds Pro.

Sadly for me, they seem to lack the very feature that made the Buds Live my favourite buds; my ear canals are too narrow to comfortably accept any in-ear buds.

Sadly, I will have to just drool over them. 😢
hi ive preorderd the s21 ultra and it states we can claim the ear buds pro and a smart tag so how do I claim them, my phone is being delivered on the 26th jan.

@Hackett: If you pre-ordered from 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. 

ok thanks, yes thats great as I claimed two years ago with the s10+ . when will the link be on the members app. as my phone comes next week on the 26th jan also will I be able to claim the phantom black as my new phone.
hi im using my s21 now and I have had it through 3 network. I'm ready to claim but there is no link on my benefits page

Hi @Hackett , Lucky you! 😊:thumbs-up-sign-emoji-modifier-fitzpatrick-type:
