As with almost every Galaxy S or Note launch, Samsung usually announces a couple of accessories designed to enhance the user experience. For today’s launch, it’s the Galaxy Buds Pro.

Underneath the shell, you get a 6.5mm tweeter for higher notes, along with an 11mm woofer for the low frequencies. This combination allows the device to deliver full bass and balanced treble for an enjoyable listening experience. Its 3-mic system along with a dedicated voice pickup unit and wind shield sound technology ensures that every call is crystal clear.

To make things a bit easier for you, the device can automatically switch from ANC to Ambient Sound, say, when you’re speaking.

Another fun feature of the Galaxy Buds Pro is its ability to automatically switch between multiple connected Galaxy devices. So if you’re watching YouTube on your Galaxy Tab and you get a call on your phone, Auto Switch will let you answer the call with Buds Pro, and then immediately switch back to your tablet once the call has ended.

It also lets you experience 360 Audio which emulates the sound of a Multi-Channel Speaker. You’ll be able to hear sounds from different angles and positions, making your movie-watching sessions a lot more engaging.

As for battery life, Samsung claims up to 18 hours of uptime with the case. You can also get an hour of playback with just 5 minutes of charging.
