AirPods Pro have the right to a feature called Audio Spatial. According to Apple, it delivers cinema-like surround sound quality and feels like the sound is coming from all directions. It has been available since September. It turns out that Samsung will take up the idea with its Galaxy Buds Pro.
Samsung incorrectly released an update for its Galaxy Wearable app in the Galaxy Store. This includes the most important details about the Galaxy Buds Pro, including the spatial audio function. Samsung says in its app, “Hear sharp, haunting sounds from all directions to feel like you’re in the scene while watching videos.”
A Galaxy smartphone with Android 11 is required for space audio with the Galaxy Buds Pro. Currently, the update is only available for the Galaxy S20, Galaxy Note 20 and Galaxy Z Flip 5G. AirPods require an iPhone with iOS 14 for spatial audio. This means that you must have at least an iPhone 6s or iPhone SE (1st generation).
Samsung is expected to introduce its Galaxy Buds Pro next to the Galaxy S21 on January 14th. The price for wireless headphones in Europe would be 229 euros.
