Samsung has added a new audio feature to the Samsung Galaxy Buds 2 earbuds with a brand new update. The XDA Developers have claimed that the Samsung Galaxy Buds 2 is getting a software update by allowing it to have 360-degree audio to the earbuds that were released in August of the previous year.
The update is coming with quite a lot. Its size is 3MB. The new notable updates are call improvements and Bluetooth connections and it is also providing the consumers with a 360 Audio. This led people to believe that Samsung, the biggest tech giant in South Korea has decided to with Apple’s AirPods Pro.
Even though the ongoing competition of Samsung is evident through the naked eye, it is equally noticeable that there is a big difference between AirPods Pro and Galaxy Buds Pro. While Apple’s Spatial Audio is designed to be used with audio content built for 360 degrees, Samsung’s Galaxy Buds Pro can work with the audio coming from most apps. Apart from that, there is another feature that the Samsung 360 audio is supposed to have. It needs to shift the positioning of the stereo channels based on the movements of the head of the users.
Samsung has not been in the news for any recent update before the addition of the Galaxy Buds Pro to the Samsung Galaxy Buds 2 earbuds. Its last update was released in 2021 when the company had announced that its earbuds supported the company’s Galaxy Buds app for windows. Using this update the users could change all the settings and options from a Windows PC without staying dependable on the Galaxy Wearable app on their mobile phones.
The newly-added feature to the Samsung Galaxy Buds 2 is undoubtedly coming out as one of the strongest competitors of Apple’s AirPods Pro. But the addition of the Galaxy Buds Pro to the Samsung Galaxy Buds 2 is not necessarily to be a piece of very good news. Though the AirPods Pro and the Galaxy Buds Pro are almost carrying similar prices, it is being said that Samsung’s 360 Audio is yet to reach its perfection. It lacks the full-bodied spatial audio experience offered to the users by Apple’s AirPods Pro. Perhaps one should refrain from comparing the two most reliable earbuds in the market so brazenly, but it never goes unnoticed that the 360 Audio of Samsung is not quite as perfect as it appeared to be. Despite the recent improvements, the Galaxy Buds 2 still sound somewhat cramped and flat.
But there is indeed one thing that can attract the consumers’ attention towards the new feature added to the Samsung Galaxy Buds 2, and that is, even though it is considered to be priced almost similar to Apple’s AirPods Pro, still it is considerably cheaper than the ones produced by Apple. And that is enough reason for the users to bag one of Samsung’s Galaxy Buds 2 with the new features.
But noticing the new updates in the Samsung Galaxy Buds 2, Android Police has rightly observed that the continuous use of the Samsung’s Galaxy Buds 2 can make the users feel nauseous. And another pretty evident problem is that this 360 Audio is very high on draining the battery life.
The newly-added feature in Samsung Galaxy Buds 2 is not very desirable right now. However, the South Korean tech giant, Samsung has taken its first step towards making a world-class earbuds.
