Samsung Galaxy Buds+ vs. Apple AirPods Pro – Which is Better?

by birtanpublished on January 30, 2021

folks Samsung's Galaxy buds plus just came out and we happen to have a set right here which means it's time to get busy reviewing them and comparing them so let's start by comparing them to the Apple earpods problem now to be honest I think the more fair comparison would be to compare them to the echo buds from Amazon but that's another video we got to start with the air pods Pro because I think that's where most people's minds go you got a premium phone manufacturer

Making a premium earbud and you just want to stack these two together why are we not involving the original air pods well because they're nothing like the Galaxy buds plus or the air pods Pro in that there's no silicone ear tip there's no sound isolation whatsoever in fact the only reason that they're even in this conversation is because they're around the same price but in every other way they falter the battery life is half of that that you get with that Galaxy buds plus and as I said there's no passive noise isolation let alone noise canceling to talk about so say goodbye

To the air pods first we've got to unbox these guys you know we just got him so yeah let's check them out I expect them to look like ear buds though I don't think we're gonna get any surprises there let's see oh yeah sure enough so I think they're a little bit smaller than I was expecting for and man they're a lot lighter than I remember the original galaxy buds being so that's impressive obviously we have the white colourway here but there's three other colors that you can go with wireless charging case

Included not extra USB C to charge that guy and I suspect that we'll find the cable for that in here yes indeed all right so all your standard fare let's get down to actually comparing these guys let's do a little size comparison with the air pods so the case is I mean they're close enough that I don't really think that we need to you know discern the difference between the two and then your ear pods versus Galaxy buds comparison we'll get in tight on that for you so you see very similar obviously the big

Difference is that there is no little golf tee antenna coming off of the galaxy buds plus as you do get with the earpods pro before we get to listening let's have a little conversation what's really going on here in this versus I mean you've got the galaxy buds plus coming in at 150 ear pods Pro coming in at 250 that's $100 difference and then in terms of features you've got no active noise-cancelling and the galaxy buds plus you definitely get noise cancelling in ear pods Pro in fact it's some of the best that I've heard more on that in a minute then we get to battery

Life which is a real meaningful aspect to a lot of folks 11 hours with the galaxy bud plus and only about five four-and-a-half realistically with the air pods Pro and you get another 11 hours out of the charging case now would you believe I've seen some reviewers downplaying the battery life aspect and I used to be one of those people where it's like hey you know five hours pretty good especially if you do a quick charge and by the way you can get a good hour out of just three minutes of charging with the galaxy buds plus which again is amazing but for convenience for long

Flights that battery life is nothing short of amazing why hasn't anybody else gotten close to 11 hours before and you know what the buds didn't get much bigger either there's another aspect here that we should talk about there's no real fitness aspect to either one of these ear buds so if we're comparing them apples to apples or apples to galaxy buds there's no fitness aspect to take into consideration so for me this comparison is going to come down to a balance between battery life cost sound quality and noise cancelling or noise isolation

In the galaxy buds plus case the only way we can make this determination is we got to get listening so let me do that real quick so first impressions with the sound quality they like to clean up your treble quite a bit that's sort of pristine sounding not sterile mid-range is clear vocals have a good amount of weight in presence the bass is yeah I could use some more I'm not a huge bass head I know a lot of people who are but I could use a little bit more oomph down in the in the kick drum and the bass

Guitar can use a little bit more but you know what let me switch to air pods Pro and see what I think about that okay well there's the bass I wanted I still can't believe that the air pods Pro sound as good as they do like I just never saw that coming from Apple I still don't expect it when I put these C's in but you know I'm consistently pleased with the sound quality I get out of these no it's not audiophile grade I have way better Sony headphones for sure but for everyday use and when I was flying the other week like these things were clutch the noise cancelling in

Particular was great because I mean I took off my Sony 1000m threes and put these in and I was able to lay down you know and take a little nap and yeah that noise cancelling definitely kicks in it so you should put them in I'd never get used to that either just kind of like sucks out oh so all right let's press pause on the music let's take these out right off the bat I got to tell you the sound quality is better with the air plugs Pro than it is the galaxy buds Plus is it $100 better no but if you add the noise cancelling on top yes so right off the bat I gotta say you're gonna get

What you pay for out of the more expensive air pods Pro but that does not mean that the air pods Pro are necessarily the right choice for everyone I still think there's a huge market for the Galaxy buds plus especially with that battery life so you know what let's revisit these especially because I want to check out the passive noise isolation on its own when you're not actually playing music it's not going to do much for you but once you do start playing music how much do you actually hear around you so let's put these guys back in

Automatically sensing that I put them in it's gonna start starts the music right back up alright so I've got this at like 75 percent volume Dan say something I got no idea what day I'm saying right now I can't hear a thing obviously that's gonna be different with an airline bus noise light rail train noise whatever you know that stuff it's gonna come through a little bit but once you start playing music you really you're effectively blocking things out so if you don't need full-on active noise cancellation I think the galaxy Bud's Plus do a

Really solid job oh one thing I should talk about I usually don't because it's so subjective is comfort level how do these guys feel when they're in well ear pods Pro for me feel great when I first put them in they're fine after a while they kind of tend to wear on my ear I've tried the smaller silicone ear tip didn't get as good of a seal and so I just went back to the medium and I mean it's fine for a couple hours take a little break start again no big deal with the Samsung Galaxy buds plus obviously I've only had these for a little bit but I can tell you right now

That when I put them in they're a little bit less invasive they're lighter too so they happen to fit my ear canal a little bit better but again mileage is going to vary depending on the size and shape of your ear and how well the various different ear tips that are included with these guys are gonna jive with you really you got to try it for yourself to know what the comfort levels gonna be like so of the hundreds there are literally hundreds of them now true wireless earbuds out there why are we focusing on these well because I think they're the most popular they're

Most accessible too especially when you go buy a phone these are going to be sitting right there I mean the cases look similar the brands are very different but how's the performance well as we've discussed the sound quality on the air pods Pro much better the noise canceling is actually a thing it's active noise-cancelling technology so if you are a frequent traveler that's gonna be a big deal to you pony up the extra hundred bucks it'll absolutely be worth it but on battery life the Samsung Galaxy buds plus win they're huge winner on price less expensive 150

That's gonna be a big deal to folks as well and I think as time goes on that price will go down maybe we look at some bundle deals phones get discounts they get more affordable so that's gonna be a big plus for for folks as well so I think for an everyday user who's not super picky about sound quality galaxy Bud's plus are gonna make you very very happy however if you are a little bit more picky about sound quality and you're a frequent flyer you need the best noise cancelling that you can get the air pods Pro are the better choice is one hands-down a better choice than

Another well yeah if I have to pick a winner airpot SPRO get it but just by a note I'm still wildly impressed with that 11 hour battery life I think that's a really big deal and I'm excited Samsung did that because now that they've done it it means others are gonna have to do it as well and yeah the only thing left to do is compare these to every other earbud out there not looking forward to that folks thanks for watching now that you know about the Samsung Galaxy buds plus what do you think are these the right thing for you you already know I'm gonna compare them
