Battle of the Buds

Battle Of The Buds: Google Pixel Buds Pro vs Samsung Galaxy Buds 2 Pro vs Nothing Ear (1)

There are a handful of considerations that factor into the decision-making process for earbuds, such as audio quality (duh), affordability, and ANC capabilities. With an abundance of options on the market, however, it can be difficult to find the best fit — regardless of their status as a flagship offering, or a lower-end alternative.

For those who are looking to narrow down their list, we have pit three different models against one another. The Google Pixel Buds Pro (S$299) and Samsung Galaxy Buds 2 Pro (S$328) are the premium picks, while the Nothing Ear (1) presents a friendlier alternative for the wallet at S$179.

The comparison might not be quite fair, but it’s surprising to see how each of them held out against the competition. Where the Galaxy Buds 2 Pro impresses with its pretty Bora Purple case, the Pixel Buds Pro takes the crown elsewhere. The Nothing Ear (1), meanwhile, puts up an unexpected show in a category that might be the least of one’s concerns.
