Samsung Galaxy Buds 2 Pro: price, availability and how to book

Samsung unveiled its latest pair of true wireless earbuds, the Galaxy Buds 2 Pro, at the Galaxy Unpacked event earlier today, introducing them alongside the upcoming Galaxy Watch 5, Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Galaxy Z Flip 4. The second pair of earbuds among the Pro Name launches on August 26 and is available for pre-order starting today for $229.99, a cool $30 more than the price of the original Pros and $80 more than the standard second edition buttons.

At first glance, the noise-canceling Buds 2 Pro don’t deviate from the design Samsung put down with the original Buds Pro last year. They keep their elongated shape, but shrink it, ostensibly to make the earbuds more comfortable for all-day use. Samsung also offers the earbuds in a handful of colorways – including white, purple and black – all of which have a matte finish. Some of the returning standout features of the original Buds Pro are IPX7 waterproofing and wireless charging, and while the Buds 2 Pro support seamless switching between Samsung devices, they lack true multipoint Bluetooth support.

However, one of the most notable improvements to the Pro 2 is their added support for 24-bit Hi-Fi audio over Bluetooth, which offers better fidelity than most wireless earbuds if you’re using a Samsung device and an app that supports it. In addition to the ability to achieve a higher bitrate, the upcoming earbuds will feature “enhanced” 360-degree audio, which aims to increase the level of immersion when listening to selected content.

Where to pre-order the Samsung Galaxy Buds 2 Pro

Right now, the Galaxy Buds 2 Pro are only available for pre-order from Samsung, where you can pick them up in all three colorways ahead of their August 26 launch for $229.99. Samsung is also offering $75 off your purchase when you trade in a pair of Galaxy Buds, along with a free wireless charger and $30 credit that’s good for a future Samsung purchase. If you want to bundle your purchase, you can also save an additional $50 through Samsung if you buy the Buds 2 Pro with a Galaxy Watch 5 or Galaxy Watch 5 Pro or up to $300 if you pair them with a Galaxy Z Fold 4 or Z Flip 4.

Samsung Galaxy Buds 2 Pro

The Galaxy Buds 2 Pro are Samsung’s latest pair of true wireless earbuds. They retain the familiar shape of their predecessor, the Galaxy Buds Pro, but are slightly smaller and support 24-bit audio playback via Bluetooth.

Other retailers don’t currently offer the Buds 2 Pro; however, we’ll update this post if — or when — Best Buy, Amazon, Target, and other retailers start selling Samsung’s upcoming pair of earbuds.
