If we already knew the main lines of what they will have to offer, the new True Wireless Galaxy Buds Live headphones from Samsung will hit the market in three colors, including an elegant bronze. Smaller than the Galaxy Buds +, they should also be easier to wear …
Present on the headphones market True Wireless For several years now, Samsung launched its Galaxy Buds + earlier this year. Hailed by the press, including in our columns, and more widely by the public, these will soon be replaced or in any case supplemented by new Bluetooth headphones: the Galaxy Buds Live. If the concept stays the same, Samsung would bet on a redesigned design while logically adding active noise reduction. As a reminder, this was one of the main shortcomings of Buds +.
Through new leaked visuals, shared by the leaker Evan Blass (aka Evleaks) on his Patreon, we discover as a bonus three colors. In addition to the usual black and white, Samsung would also offer us a copper-colored shade with the most beautiful effect.
Bean-shaped design and smaller headphones
These visuals also present in more detail the design of these new wireless headphones. On their back, two holes corresponding to the on-board microphones, as well as a small grid, the presence of which is still difficult to explain. In any case, these two microphones should be used for the active noise reduction system, and in particular for the capture of external noise, both for the suppression of noise and for the activation of an “ambient sound” mode. .
According to XDA Developpers, the design of these Galaxy Buds Live would be more compact (only 2.8 cm long) than that of Buds +, for example. Good news that should increase comfort when these new headphones are worn, including by users with small ears. They should also stand out less than the previous models. The absence of silicone ear tips could on the other hand reduce the effectiveness of the noise reduction, the sound insulation being intrinsically linked to these flexible parts, adaptable in the ear canal.
On the side of the case, Samsung will visibly abandon the elongated format for a more square box. A rubber band has also been added to the cover, probably to make its closure quieter.
We should have more information on Galaxy Buds Live next month. These new headphones should indeed be presented by Samsung during its Unpacked conference, scheduled for August 5, 2020. The event will also be an opportunity for the group to unveil a flank of other products, including the Galaxy Z Flip 5G, the Galaxy Note 20, or the Galaxy Watch 3.
