My new Galaxy Buds Pro are like a small slice of heaven for me.
Being an audiophile, a musician and recording artist, I have had the chance to wear just about every type of headphones and earbuds out there. I have paid far more than $200 for headphones, in-ear monitors, and ear buds in the past.. but I have to say that this purchase I was very tentative about. I did tons of research while looking for a pair of wireless earbuds, and I was honestly stuck between 3 different products, all from different companies.
In the end I chose these galaxy buds pro based on the size of their driver, and the fact that they had a 2nd tweeter driver the size of most earbuds only driver. I figured they had to be the best, with the size and combo of the two drivers (which are basically the speaker itself for those unaware of what a driver is) and I am glad to say that I was right. The sound clarity and range are almost perfect. The only issue I have is more or less with my body, and that is that when I move a very specific way the earbuds shift ever so slightly and it breaks the seal the rubber cups create. The result is a noticeable change in sound quality, but all I have to do is give them a quick push in and all is well again. Thankfully this only seems to happen when Im listening to music while sitting down, and again its a very specific movement with my head that causes it.. my ears sort of move a little, and the earbuds have to shift around a bit due to the movement of my ear. Normally this happens with any type of earbuds, and with most the loss of sound quality is extremely drastic. With these buds pro, the loss is noticeable but far from distracting.. its the difference between perfect sound, and a sound that is slightly lacking and a tad hollow. But one push in on each ear, and the seal suctions the cups in and the sounds is just impeccable. Then again, AKG are the ones behind the tech in these buds so its not a big surprise that they are excellent for music.
I listen to all types of music, and have a vast collection of high res music files (the kind that are very large and take up far more space then the typical MP3 files do). The regular MP3 files I have sound better through these buds then they do when put through expensive floor speakers. And the high res music files suddenly jump to life.. I actually heard things I've never heard. Pink Floyd comes to mind immediately and my finally being able to fully understand what they are saying in the background. Even things that were never meant to be heard, like the sound engineer telling them to start playing.. little things in the music can finally be heard and it is just fantastic. I honestly couldn't be happier with my purchase and knowing now what I know, Id happily pay more for these things.
What shocked me was the noise reduction and ambient sounds features. I had to download some updates through the app, but once I had it all current those features really shined. Even the voice recognition is exciting to experience. Its sort of weird to have earbuds in, and all sounds are totally blocked off.. until you or someone else speaks and with the buds still in you can hear as if you didn't have them in at all. The television was right next to me, I could hear it quite well when my buds were first put in.. I could hear the TV perfectly then all of a sudden I could barely hear it.. the buds were just in, and nothing was playing through them. But they had turned on, and the noise cancelation thing kicked in or I might have switched it on in the app playing with it at first. I started the updates and when it finished suddenly that same noise reduction was drastically better. It was shocking. I kept talking about it, and then getting shocked that I could hear with the buds in. I sort of lost my mind for a bit raving about them, then I played music and lost my mind a lot more.. and in the end I am now wearing them about 5 hours a day, totally addicted to music all over again that I've heard countless times before this. Now the experience is so much better, its just like I said.. a slice of heaven.
Oh yeah, and the app is wonderful too. The equalizer is rather limited but still makes some very nice changes and is a step in the right direction. Would love to see a full range equalizer with more flexibility, but I'm just picky with those types of things. I used the app to change the bass range, and when I switched over to my Sony walkman the sound remained and it all worked rather flawlessly. I cant say enough good things really.. go get a pair, do the updates, make sure the fit in your ear is proper and that a seal is made with the rubber cups (they ship with different sized cups if you need them), and adjust the features in the app.. boot up spotify, youtube, or your favorite music files.. and voila, heaven enters your ears and serves you slices of musical glory.
