Samsung made official GALAXY BUDS plus after weeks of leaks and anticipation along with Galaxy S20: Galaxy S20, S20 + and S20 Ultra at Galaxy Unpacked event. One of the devices Samsung revealed prematurely was a renewed 2nd version of his true wireless headphones: the Galaxy Buds +.
While the Galaxy Buds + look a lot like the original model, it's fine. The overall design was one of the best aspects of the Samsung headphones of 2019. These new sanitary devices are included in the Galaxy S20 as a pre-order bonus. However, they will also be available as a separate product for any customer. After all, the new "Galaxy Buds +" application is now available and is compatible with any Android or iOS device.
The audio experience received an update with 2-way speakers (woofer + tweeter). These two are tuned by AKG. In addition, the new wearables come with three microphones onboard.
Although it does not come with a function ANC (active noise cancellation) very requested. However, they do have environmental transfer, so you can maintain awareness of the situation while listening.
One of the biggest changes on the Galaxy Buds+ is battery life, as it has a large battery capacity of 85 mAh. This is almost double the 58 mAh present in the previous model. While the previous Galaxy Buds could run for around six hours on a single charge, Samsung says this new version will last up to 11 hours.

Inside the case, there is also a new battery that is slightly larger than its predecessor. With the new Buds +, users can wait 11 hours of playback, twice if they are opened in the case from time to time. You can also use Qi wireless charging from your Galaxy S20 phone or a USB-C cable to recharge the battery.
Cons: The Galaxy Buds+ still lack the active noise cancellation (ANC) features.
The Samsung Galaxy Buds+ will be available in three color variant black, white, blue and red. They come with two pairs of rubber tips, so you can choose the size that best suits your ears.
If you are not interested in pre-ordering a Galaxy S20 phone, you can request the Galaxy Buds + from February 14. They cost $ 150 in the United States and € 170 in Europe. It represents a price increase of $ 20 / € 20 on the original shoots.
