Die Samsung Buds Pro haben eine sehr gute Verarbeitung! Außerdem bietet der Sound von AKG sehr hohe Höhe und tiefe Tiefen! Die 3D-Funktion ist richtig gut,denn man denkt man wäre beim Konzert Vorort.:) Der Akku hält bei mir 7Stunden, wenn ich die Musiklautstärke auf 70% aufdrehe. Das einzige wo man meckern kann ist, die Form, denn aus vielen Ohren fallen sie raus. Man muss sich erst an die Form gewöhnen. Aber nach einer kurzen Zeit passen sie sehr gut. Ich finde die Buds Pro von Samsung sind die idealen Tag- Begleiter, ob um Sport zu machen, zu arbeiten oder für zuhause. Sehr gut!

Pros

  • Sehr guter Klang
  • Viele Funktionen
  • Lange Akkulaufzeit
  • Gut Verarbeitet
  • Preis ab 126 euro

Cons

  • Die Form nicht für jedes Ihr gedacht
  • App nicht für IOS Geräte verfügbar

Design

The first number of the IP rating refers to protection against dust, while the second number refers to protection against liquid. E.g. a first number of 6 denotes that it is completely dustproof, and a second number of 7 denotes that the device can withstand full immersion in water.
weight

12.6g

14.6g

We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.
