I did see a review where a guy compared his buds plus against the pro, and he actually had to go out and buy a brand new pair of buds plus as he thought his were broken when comparing the 2. Turns out they weren't broken, they just sounded really bad. So from that, I gather the pros have improved in terms of sound quality.Im interested to see if these are better sounding than the buds plus. Those are really cheap at the moment (about £60 here). Im intrigued by the 360 audio but not sure whether my note 20 ultra will get the update to support that. ANC not a big sell for me to be honest, pretty quiet where i walk and work.
A lot of reviews are saying the ANC is one of the worst and beaten by budget ear buds at half the price. The voice detection is a bit of a gimmick at the minute apparently due to it only lasting 15 seconds maximum until your music plays again, so if someone is speaking to you for longer than 15 seconds it will suddenly drown them out.
General consensus seems to be that the ANC isnt great, sound is "OK" but beaten buy cheaper buds, price is high, but they are well designed, pair well with samsung devices and have IPX7 rating.
A very nice review here, talking about the ANC not being very good:Interested to see these reviews as all those I have read are very positive about the sound quality and the ANC. Certainly not heard comments that they are beaten by much cheaper buds, only by the more expensive such as Bose, Sony and Jabra.
As for the voice function, I watched a 'hands on' where it can be set to 5, 10 or 15 seconds in the options, and that is the time after it stops detecting speech before the volume is restored.
I have no experience of any of the Samsung buds, bud I was considering the Pro's. I have gone with the CA Melomania Touch and I'm seriously impressed with the sound and they are extremely comfortable and IMO the best looking bud out there - they dont stick out too much and sit pretty flush in my ears. only £119 from richer sounds with a discount code I believe.Thanks, I enjoyed watching those. Buds live are dropping again (less than £85) and im looking for comfort and sound quality. Thinking the pros might be overkill for my needs...i don't even take calls through my buds. Anyone managed to try both?
Nothing wrong with my cheap Buds+. Sound fine for their price point. Never going to be used in preference to my high-end IEM's but fine when out cycling or exercising.I did see a review where a guy compared his buds plus against the pro, and he actually had to go out and buy a brand new pair of buds plus as he thought his were broken when comparing the 2.
