Samsung announces Galaxy Buds+ headphones
Samsung's latest true wireless headphones can run for up to 11 hours before running out of power.
While the stars of the show for Samsung's Galaxy Unpacked event this morning are the new Galaxy S20 phones – or the Galaxy Z Flip if you're more in the foldable phone camp – Samsung also used the event to launch its new Galaxy Buds+ headphones.
Samsung has been producing true wireless headphones for a number of years now, and the very basics of the Galaxy Buds+ aren't anything terribly surprising, with AKG sound, 2-way speakers and a triple mic array for when you're actually making calls from your phone.
What is new for the Galaxy Buds is the inclusion of full iOS compatibility if you're determined to match them up with an iPhone rather than a Galaxy phone device, and a significant boost in battery life capability.
While the supplied battery case can only give you a single extra recharge to the Galaxy Buds+, they're capable of up to 11 hours of playback when fully charged, which is quite impressive for headphones of this size. Samsung also announced a new partnership with Spotify that more heavily integrates the streaming music service into Samsung's Galaxy phones, enabling quick playback with a single tap on the new Galaxy Buds+ headphones.
In Australia, the Galaxy Buds+ headphones will be valued at $299 retail, but they'll also be a pre-order bonus for the new Samsung Galaxy S20 phones.
