Since its release, the AirPods have been maintaining its status as premium wireless earbuds, But now Samsung wants to beat Apple with its Galaxy Buds Live. Since the two tech giants are no strangers to fierce rivalry, let’s find out who becomes the winner when it comes to earbuds.
Apple’s devices are always a bit pricier than its competitors’ and the same goes for its AirPods.
Design and Comfort
Galaxy Buds Live are without a doubt more comfortable and better-looking than AirPods. Their bean-like design really complements your ear, but AirPods Pro, with their stems, are easier to take in and out of your ears, and their rubber tips allow them to fit in most people’s ears easily.
Both of AirPods and Galaxy Buds Live sound good. But the Galaxy Buds Live have a much more dynamic sound profile when left on default settings. The AirPods Pro on the other hand, sound more neutral, with less bass, reports CNet.
Voice Assistants (Both have same features)
You can give enjoy a hands-free experience with Siri when you’re using an iPhone. Also, when using Galaxy Buds Live, you can summon Samsung’s smart assistant Bixby while you’re using a Samsung phone. These voice assistants can give you the news on the weather, play music, or send messages to a friend, entirely hands-free. The voice assistants can also be triggered via a touch gesture on both the AirPods Pro and Buds Live.
