Samsung’s Galaxy Buds X will be the next major rival to Apple’s AirPods Pro($249) and Google Pixel Buds 2($179), but cheaper.
Many leaks have already shown that Samsung is working on a new pair of earbuds with active noise cancellation.
New trademark granted by US Patent Office has confirmed Galaxy Buds X and its arrival. South Korean publication Maeil recently noted that new Buds X will cost somewhere around $140.
What is noise cancellation?
Noise cancellation is reducing unwanted ambient sounds using active noise control. It works by using microphones to pick up low-frequency noise and neutralize it before it reaches the ear. Earbuds generate a sound that’s canceling unwanted sounds. More about it.
