AirPods, Galaxy Buds, and Echo Buds: Is it worth switching to the latest version?

Samsung, Apple and Amazon are increasingly developing modern headphones, whether to accompany their cell phones (in the case of the first two) or just for everyday use.

These lines get frequently updated forms. Is it worth choosing the latest versions? We check the differences for each brand.

The Galaxy Buds 2 were launched last year, and they gain Active Noise Cancellation (ANC), which reduces external sounds by up to 98%.

With this option activated, the headphones’ battery lasts for five hours. If the rechargeable case is fully charged, it is up to 20 hours.

The pair weighs five grams, has a Bluetooth connectivity version 5.2, an equalizer (controlling bass and treble levels), 3D sound with Dolby Head Tracking sensor and a sense of reality with Dolby Atmos® sensor. It is compatible with devices running Android version 7 or higher.

Buds Pro, the previous version, has advantages and disadvantages compared to its smaller brother. In it, ANC is slightly more efficient: it removes 99% of noise. Its charge also lasts five hours, but yields less in the rechargeable case: 18 hours.

It weighs more (6.3 grams – nothing will make much difference in the ear), but it still uses Bluetooth version 5.0. If your only concern is audio, it has the same 3D audio capabilities as Buds 2.

For those with older cell phones, it can be a good solution, which still speaks to Android devices from version 5 onwards. In contrast, you need at least 1.5 GB of internal memory.

Verdict: Buds 2 are better, but the differences are minimal. If you still have a Pro, it may be worth waiting for the next generation to switch to an already updated model.

Apple: AirPods 3 or 2?

The third generation of . has been released AirPods Produced to eliminate ambient noise. Its size is small (18.26 mm wide and 30.79 mm high) and its weight is no more than 4.28 grams.

Its structure is already touch-sensitive, allowing you to skip forward or backward in the song. In addition, it resists contact with water, moisture, and perspiration.

It has a high dynamic range amplifier (it can pick up bass and treble tracks well), and spatial audio, which simulates sound coming from different directions. The speaker also features Adaptive Balance, detecting what you’re listening to and adjusting the low and mid frequencies, so details come in high fidelity with every song.

It can handle six hours of continuous use, but only five hours with spatial audio playing. With a full charge in the case, it works for up to 30 hours.

The previous generation is shorter, but with a longer stem (16.5 mm wide and 40.5 mm high) and weighs a little less: 4 grams.

It also owns sensors Optical diodes, like the ones on the new model, but they don’t have noise canceling technology or water resistance.

The battery is less powerful: it lasts up to five hours, but with the rechargeable case at full capacity, it can be up to 24.

Verdict: Despite the high price, the new generation really brings features that make a difference. Worth the investment.

Amazon: Buds Echo 2 or 1?

Echo Buds 2 was released this year. It features noise canceling (ANC), Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity and is sweat-resistant. It is 20 mm wide, 19.1 meters high, and weighs 5.7 grams.

Like many other Amazon products, the difference is you get the Alexa Assistant right out of the box, which works via voice commands. (But if you prefer, you can also use the Apple Siri and Google Assistant.)

Battery life is five hours of playtime, with up to 15 hours of recharge in the portable case.
