Wireless headphones are very popular on the market, but the prices do not always suit all budgets. At the moment, the Samsung Galaxy Buds 2 are cheaper than when they were released: 89 euros against 149 euros.
After the success of the Galaxy Buds Pro, Samsung is now attacking the mid-range with its Galaxy Buds 2. These wireless headphones replace the first of the name, bringing improvements such as the presence of noise reduction technology. Already offered at a great price, Samsung headphones are 40% off.
What are Galaxy Buds 2?
- Comfortable headphones with a compact body
- Effective active noise reduction
- Audio quality ensured by two transducers
- The fast charging part
Instead of 149 euros, the Samsung Galaxy Buds 2 (purple color) are on sale at 119 euros on Amazon. To further reduce the bill, the manufacturer offers an ODR of 30 euros valid until June 21, 2022. Thus, the true wireless cost only 89 euros.

A model that is close to the Buds Pro
Aesthetically, the Samsung Galaxy Buds 2 are in line with the Buds Live or the Buds Pro. They therefore also adopt a rounded in-ear format. Once in your ear canal, the headphones are very comfortable and will be forgotten during long listening sessions, in particular thanks to their lightness (only 6.3 grams per earbud). Samsung is rethinking the ergonomics of its headphones, including a rather large touch surface for easy control. As for the case, it is rather compact and will be easy to store in a pocket.
A convincing audio part
This is surely one of the strong points of these Buds 2: the audio. They offer a balanced, well-detailed and warm sound reproduction, thanks in particular to its two dynamic transducers – the same as the Buds Pro. We therefore have a tweeter, which will focus on the highs and mids, and a woofer, focused on the bass. In addition, true wireless headphones are compatible with the classic codecs such as Bluetooth SBC and AAC, but we will not be able to find aptX or LDAC. For this price range, they have the merit of being quite precise and efficient, especially in vocals or treble.
These wireless headphones obviously have active noise reduction. If, in fact, we are far from what the WF-1000XM4 headphones from Sony or the AirPods Pro from Apple can offer, the headphones manage to reduce a good part of the noise, especially since the passive isolation is already well under control. A Transparency mode is also available, which allows – unlike ANC – to hear the sounds around you.
Quick to reload
As for autonomy, the headphones are quite durable. Samsung promises a duration of use of 5 hours with activated noise reduction, while the case deploys him 20 hours of use. Without ANC, the case can go up to 29 hours of autonomy.
However, their advantage lies in their recharging, because 38 minutes will suffice to recharge them to 100% once placed in their case. Wireless charging is a little slower, of course, but it’s still there. Finally, note that the Buds 2 are only IPX2 certified compared to the IPX7 index of the Galaxy Buds Pro. They therefore resist only splashes of water projected at an angle of up to 15°.
