    Galaxy Buds Pro appear well-priced for the features they offer

    The Galaxy Buds Pro are shaping up to be Samsung's best truly wireless earphones ever. Their design and features have been leaked weeks ahead of their announcement, which is set to happen next month alongside the Galaxy S21. Now, their pricing for the US market has been leaked as well.

    Samsung's own marketing slide that compares the Galaxy Buds Pro's specs with the Galaxy Buds+ and the Galaxy Buds Live has been leaked. According to the image, the Galaxy Buds Pro will be priced at $199, which is a $30 markup over the $169 Galaxy Buds Live. If this information is correct, the upcoming truly wireless earphones appear well-priced for what they offer, at least for the US market. European pricing of these earphones is a different story altogether.

    The Galaxy Buds Pro use a dual-driver setup (11mm woofer and 6.5mm tweeter), similar to the Galaxy Buds+. There are three microphones on each earbud and an in-ear canal fit for improved active noise cancellation compared to the Galaxy Buds Live. They also feature improved Ambient Sound mode, Conversation Mode, adjustable ANC levels, and 3D spatial audio. There's an IPX7 certification for sweat and water resistance, which is an improvement over the Galaxy Buds and Galaxy Buds Live's IPX2 rating.

    According to Samsung's marketing material, the Galaxy Buds Pro should offer 8 hours of battery life with the earbuds alone and a total of 28 hours with the case. Talk time figures stand at 4.5 hours with the earbuds and up to 15 hours with the case. Other features include Bluetooth 5.1, multi-point connection, fast pairing, USB Type-C port, fast charging, and wireless charging.
