The latest variant of the Samsung Galaxy Buds+ are hailed as some of the best non-ANC TWS earbuds out there. However, they are also affected by the potential for severe wind-noise during voice calls. Their latest firmware update is touted to fix this problem.

The Samsung Galaxy Buds+ may be a solid option for those who would like a pair of TWS earphones, but would prefer to avoid a form-factor with the shape of a toothbrush or a hairdryer. However, they have historically suffered from the issue of elevated wind-noise while using their Ambient Sound feature. This may be particularly apparent during voice-calls.

The latest firmware version for these accessories pushed by their OEM may solve this problem. Known as the R175XXU0ATD3 software package for the Galaxy Buds+, it reportedly ameliorates the "wind-noise" problem, and also makes Ambient Sound more effective in general.

This may be particularly good news for Samsung fans in Taiwan that have been holding out for more SKU options in their prospective earbud purchase. The company's division in this country has announced that the Buds+ will be available in a new choice of Aura Red later in April 2020. This also increases the chances that this more vibrant colorway for the peripherals will also make it to other markets soon.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
