The earbuds sport a compact build claimed to be up to 15 percent smaller than its predecessor with a secure fit. They are equipped with coaxial two-way speakers and support 24-bit Hi-Fi audio. The South Korean tech firm claims that the earbuds can last for up to 29 hours of listening time.
The Samsung Galaxy Buds 2 Pro are available to pre-order from Wednesday and will go on sale on August 26 in select countries. They are priced at $229.99 (roughly Rs. 18,000). These Samsung earbuds come in Bora Purple, Graphite, and White colour options.
