Early Galaxy Buds Pro hands-on video finds noise cancellation poorer than AirPods Pro

The Galaxy Buds Pro are already on sale on social media, and it seems there isn’t just one pair of them out in the wild. Today, an early unboxing and hands-on video of the Galaxy Buds Pro earbuds has been published on the Digital Slang channel on YouTube and gives us the rundown on many of the new earbuds’ features. Most importantly, it talks about the quality of active noise cancellation, or rather, how it’s “good but not as impressive as it is on the AirPods Pro.”

Of course, one person’s opinion isn’t enough for a proper conclusion, so we will have to wait to test the Buds Pro ourselves to see just how good or bad noise cancellation is on the new earbuds. The in-ear design of Samsung’s previous Galaxy Buds iterations already offered a high degree of noise cancellation out of the box, and we can imagine even a little extra boost with the addition of official ANC support will make most customers happy.

The Ambient sound feature has seemingly been improved, and sound quality is said to be fantastic, with “clear mids and highs and punchy bass.” You can check out the full unboxing by hitting the Play button in the embedded YouTube video below. Naturally, we’ll have our own review and hands-on experience for you once the Galaxy Buds Pro go official on January 14th, so stay tuned!
