Samsung Malaysia revealed the local pricing of quite a number of products today, including the affordable Samsung Galaxy Buds 2. Despite its budget-friendly price tag, these colourful wireless earbuds still feature active noise cancellation.
For the Malaysian market, the Galaxy Buds 2 retails at only RM499. This is quite a bit lower than the asking price of the earbuds in the US, which is set at $149 (about RM630). However, Samsung Malaysia did not reveal exactly when the Buds 2 will be available for purchase here.
Nonetheless, according to Samsung, the new Buds 2’s active noise cancellation is able to cut off external background noise by up to 98%. The Ambient Sound mode has three levels too, giving you the ability to control how much of the outside world that you hear.
In terms of battery life, the Buds 2’s 61mAh battery can provide up to five hours of continuous playback with active noise cancellation switched on; 7.5 hours if ANC is disabled. With the included charging case, the battery life can be extended up to 20 hours or 29 hours with ANC off.
Speaking of which, the charging case of the Buds 2 also supports wireless charging. Otherwise, it can be charged through the USB-C connection.
Though it remains to be seen exactly when the Samsung Galaxy Buds 2 will be available for purchase in Malaysia, at least we now know it retails at RM499 here. We’ll keep an eye on the local availability of the affordable wireless earbuds.
