#ELLETech: I Used The Samsung Buds 2 For A Week And Here’s What I Felt
From a perfect noise-cancellation feature to a snug fit, here's everything you need to know
As a true blue #TeamiOS girl I wasn’t too sure how comfortable I’d be with the Samsung Buds. To be honest, the transition did feel weird, however, once you get used to it, you barely notice it.
It’s super snug once you get the technique just right. As someone who is used to the AirPods, it took me about a day to get comfortable with the new design. It comes with a perfect in-canal fit, plus the shape of the earpieces makes for a secure fit. A full charge lasted me an entire day—with about one hour of music, an hour of Netflix, and about two odd hours of Instagram reels (I don’t answer calls, obviously!).
A big nod of approval to the noise cancellation feature. It works perfectly.
What Didn’t Leave A Mark
There is no iOS app which was a major disappointment and meant that the buds were reduced to mere headphones for me, without active use of any of the features.
The functions of the bud are auto-set, and you cannot change them—a single tap plays or pauses music, a double-tap skips to the next track, and a triple tap skips to the previous track.
For the price point, the bud provides good features. It’s a good buy if you have a Samsung phone or tablet as that will let you use all features to perfection.
Price: Rs 11,999 | Available at Samsung.com
