Today, Samsung unveiled its latest flagship wireless earbuds, the Galaxy Buds 2 Pro. These earbuds are the successors of the Galaxy Buds Pro that were launched back in early 2021. They bring an improved design, better audio quality, a more stable wireless connection, and brand-new audio codecs.

If you are interested in the Galaxy Buds 2 Pro, here are some of its best features that you should be looking at.

Best Galaxy Buds 2 Pro features

1. Bluetooth 5.3 chip with Samsung Seamless Codec HiFi

The Galaxy Buds 2 Pro is Samsung’s first set of truly wireless earbuds that use a Bluetooth 5.3 chip. They are also the company’s first earbuds to support Samsung Seamless Codec HiFi, the South Korean firm’s near-lossless audio codec. They support 24-bit wireless audio transmission, so if you have access to Hi-Res Audio tracks, you can listen to them in near-lossless quality. However, this feature only works when the Galaxy Buds 2 Pro is paired with a Galaxy device running One UI 4.0 (or newer).

They also support AAC and SBC codecs, similar to previous Galaxy Buds. The Galaxy Buds 2 Pro also supports Auto Switching. This feature switches the connection of the earbuds between Galaxy devices (such as smartphones, tablets, laptops, or smartwatches), depending on which device you are actively using.

2. Dual-driver setup and improved ANC performance

Samsung’s newest wireless earbuds use a set of two drivers (woofer + tweeter) for rich audio quality. Although it might seem similar to the Galaxy Buds+, Galaxy Buds Pro, and the Galaxy Buds 2, Samsung says that it has optimized those drivers and their size for even better audio quality.

The South Korean firm has also improved the performance of ANC (Active Noise Cancellation), so the outside noise will be filtered with even higher accuracy. Plus, when you want to talk to someone, the Voice Pickup unit detects that you’re talking and switches the Galaxy Buds 2 Pro to the Ambient Mode.

3. 360 Audio with Direct Multi-Channel

The Galaxy Buds Pro was the first Samsung product with 360 Audio. It is a head-tracking feature that simulates the direction of audio when you move your head so that you know where the audio is coming from. With the Galaxy Buds 2 Pro, the company has added support for 5.1-channel, 7.1-channel, and Dolby Atmos for even better spatial audio performance.

4. IPX7 rating for water resistance

Compared to the Galaxy Buds 2, the Galaxy Buds 2 Pro offer better protection against water and sweat. The new set of earbuds has an IPX7 rating for water resistance, which means you can use them in the rain or during workouts without any worries.


Samsung has also equipped the Galaxy Buds 2 Pro with features often found on high-end truly wireless earbuds, including automatic wear detection, touch controls, audio and control customizations through a companion smartphone app, a USB Type-C port for charging, and Qi wireless charging. The earbuds also feature Bixby and SmartThings Find.
