Galaxy Buds2 Early Impressions

The Galaxy Buds2 earbuds surely provide a bang for the buck. With aggressive pricing and features such as ANC and great battery life, the Buds2 seem quite interesting. Also, the Galaxy Buds2 has a different design than last time which is better and more premium.

Furthermore, seeing the Galaxy Buds2 comparison against AirPods 2, Buds2 have better connectivity features and offers superior battery life. Also, AirPods lose many features when they’re connected to a non-iOS device. Hence, what matters, in the end, is the device that you use them with.
