VERDICTS

The Samsung Galaxy Buds Plus are tremendous which are also a bit beneficial when used with non-Samsung smartphones and tablets. 

It also seem to be more capable, flexible than the Galaxy Buds.

It would be best to pair it with Samsung S20 series smartphone’s for truly amazing results.

However it lacks standout features like eliminating active noise, raising suspicion of buying or not buying it.

AUDIO QUALITY

Above all each side of the earphone has a woofer and a twitter that covers the frequency range.

Furthermore with this it has a dual dynamic driver system. Which is a big change in the earbuds drivers and microphone.

In Galaxy Buds Plus earphones you get three microphones, two external and one internal. Which eliminate the surrounding voices, also improving the calling quality.

Along with this, all three microphones also provide better voice quality in comparison to older variant. The sound is tuned by Samsung’s subsidiary company AKG.

PERFORMANCE AND BATTERY

Above all as we have said earlier, Samsung Galaxy Buds Plus is a upgrade version of Samsung Galaxy Buds.

Which holds very few changes such as in some features, specifications and design.

Due to its triple microphone system for great voice call performance and also a new dual dynamic driver system that greatly enhances its sound quality.

Also a new revamp was made in Samsung’s Galaxy Buds, in which the Galaxy Buds Plus appeared to work very well on non-Samsung smartphones as well.

According to some tests, it also has a scolable Bluetooth codec similar to aptX & LDAC.

The Samsung Galaxy Buds Plus sounded great when listening to high resolution audio track, YouTube music & streaming music with Spotify.

Furthermore the stunning sound was detailed with a great sound-stage and precise imaging for a high-resolution enhancement of “Gotye’s state of the Art”.

The elements of its frequency range also looked very good, giving a very good sound.

The track was separated into heavily auto-tuned tracks with full understanding of where its track was needed and purpose.

The scalable codec of last year’s Samsung Galaxy Buds was also quite good.  But with non-Samsung devices, its performance was not good at all.

On the other hand, the performance of non-Samsung devices was quite good with Samsung Galaxy Buds Plus compared to Samsung Galaxy Buds and its sound quality was also much better.

However, there seems to be a greater need to use Samsung Galaxy Buds Plus with Samsung devices while using the AAC codec.

Application

Previously, the company had made a very good Galaxy wearable android app for Galaxy Buds, which was good enough.

But Samsung has made some improvements under this app for Galaxy Buds Plus. This app is also used to work for various Samsung wearable devices.

Simultaneously, the Samsung Galaxy Buds Plus app for iOS has also been introduced by the company which provides official support for Apple devices.

Like the Galaxy Buds, the company has provided many useful features in it such as equalizer, custom touch controls and ‘Find my earbuds’ tool. Where is the ear phone via Find my earbuds tool?

This thing can be detected when it is in the range and with this, it is used for voice readout of notifications, etc. And through this app, the charging level of the case can also be shown, which is really amazing.

However, Its Spotify integration feature is quite good because songs can be played by the streaming service without any additional input under it.

You can also adjust the intensity of ambient sounds passing through your ears and In this, ambient sound mode can also be turned on.

You can also set up a voice call to hear your own voice clearly.

Even more in the voice call settings, it noted that it allows our voice to be  cleanly, keeping all external sounds separate.

A slightly larger 270mAh battery is available for the charging case.
