Samsung’s second-generation true wireless earbuds aka the Galaxy Buds Plus is now available for purchase in Nepal. With the likes of Chinese manufacturers including Realme, Xiaomi, and even Accurate coming up with their true wireless earphones in the Nepalese market, Samsung has done no delay to introduce its Galaxy Buds‘ successor, i.e. the Galaxy Buds Plus.
The earbuds got unveiled on 12th February at the Galaxy Unpacked event, so we must say it has hit the Nepali market earlier than expected.
Unlike the older one, the new Buds Plus gets a significant improvement in battery life and can last up to 11 hours on a single charge while the charging case prolongs that to 22 hours prior to everything getting juiced back up. So, if in case the battery drains to dead, just a three minutes charge over USB-C provides an hour of playing time. You can charge them wirelessly and it supports wireless power-sharing as well.
Similarly, the Buds Plus comprises dual dynamic drivers ensuring an escalation in the audio fidelity in contrast to the previous Buds iteration. Samsung asserts that the two external microphones making a total of three enhances voice call quality.
You also get a shortcut allowing you to access Spotify on your phone — all you need to do is press and hold the left earbud.
However, you will miss the active noise cancellation; allowing Samsung to price it at a lower price tag. But again, a missing noise cancellation feature doesn’t seem to put a significant effect on the sound quality, with it having Tweeter and Woofer beneath thereby producing very good audio. And Samsung will no doubt promote it as a must-have companion for the Galaxy S20, S20 Plus, and S20 Ultra. And we think it’ll be a viable one. Out of the box, you get a spare ear and wingtips to enhance isolations.
You can buy the Samsung Galaxy Buds Plus in Nepal for a price tag of Rs. 17,000.
