Phones are optimized to capture speech sounds instead of ambient noise. That’s amazing for conversations, but it sometimes feels like the quality of the picture being captured far exceeds the quality of the sound. Samsung is trying to change that with one new software update It allows Galaxy Buds 2 Pro users to record video sound through the microphones of the two earbuds.
dubbed “360 degree audio recording” from Samsung, recording via the Galaxy Buds 2 Pro microphones uses the latest advances in Bluetooth LE (Low Energy) audio technology to include stereo sound in videos thanks to binaural recording.
Smartphones tend to have more than one microphone, but it’s possible that not only are the earbuds strategically placed to pick up sound the way a person would perceive it, but they could also have better microphones.
This very cool use of existing hardware might entice people to stay in the Samsung ecosystem. As far as we know, this would work when the Galaxy Buds 2 Pro are connected to one OneUI 5.0 Samsung phone. Samsung specifically mentions the Z Fold4 and Z Flip4, but hopefully all OneUI 5.0 phones will be compatible.
Along with this audio update, Samsung has also announced that Galaxy Watch5 and Watch4 will soon be updated to act as camera controllers. This could be cool if you’re shooting with a tripod in front of you, for example. You can use the clock to control the camera’s zoom and shutter/recording action.
