Separately, noise reduction and "Transparency Mode" were noted. The latter allows you to hear what is happening around (using the built-in microphones).
Unfortunately, Galaxy Buds are in the lead. Apple will have to be content with catching up. However, other manufacturers only dream of this. Amazon Echo Buds earned only 65 points from Consumer Reports.
Will AirPods Pro win in the future? Perhaps if they become cheaper. Judge for yourself: they ask for $ 250 for a device. Devices from Samsung and Amazon cost $ 130.
