Samsung Galaxy Buds (2020) Vs Sony Wf-Sp800N Vs Galaxy Buds Plus Vs Sony Wf

So the new Sony WF-SP800N are a great pair of workout ear buds and I actually prefer these over the Powerbeats pro cause first off they sound much better and you can make them sound how ever you want, and more importantly they also have an ambient modeu2026 as well as active noise cancelation. And thanks to their optional ear fins they stay in place very well.

So the new Sony WF-SP800N are a great pair of workout ear buds and I actually prefer these over the Powerbeats pro cause first off they sound much better and you can make them sound how ever you want, and more importantly they also have an ambient mode… as well as active noise cancelation. And thanks to their optional ear fins they stay in place very well. But a lot of people want to know how these earbuds stack up as everyday carry wireless earbuds and how they compare to the Galaxy Buds Plus, Jabra Elite 75T’s and pixel buds.

Now when it comes to price, all of these earbuds hover around the same area. The Galaxy Buds Plus retail for $150, both the Pixel Buds and Jabra Elite 75T’s retail for $180 and the SP800N’s retail for $200. But the SP800N’s routinely like to go on sale for $168. So if you want to pick any of these earbuds up they’ll be linked down below.

Now over all performance and feature set wise the SP800N’s do out perform all of these other earbuds. But the one area where these ear buds really struggle and just kills it for me when it comes to considering these ear buds as everyday carry ear buds is their case. The SP800N’s carrying case is significantly larger than all of these other carrying cases. And since this case is so large you really do notice it when its in your pocket. Where as all of these other cases just aren’t as noticeable cause they all have a smaller foot print and they’re all significantly thinner. Now both the Galaxy Buds Plus and Jabra Elite 75T’s have decently sized cases but personally my favorite case here has got to be the Pixel Buds case cause this case just feels the most premium here. The Pixel Buds case has this nice heft to it and it also has this slate finish to it just just feels great in the hand.

Now when it comes to tech specs, all of these cases charge via a USB C port as they should. But only the Pixel Buds and Galaxy Buds Plus cases have wireless charging here where as these other two cases here don’t. No personally I don’t care about wireless charging unless I have a phone that supports power sharing. But I did want to point it out cause the SP800N’s don’t have wireless charging even though this case is significantly larger than both the Pixel Buds and Galaxy buds Plus case.

Now when it comes to battery life all of these earbuds are roughly the same. The Galaxy Buds Plus have a combined battery life of 22 hours, the Pixel Buds have a combined battery life of 24 hours, and the Jabra’s have a combined battery life of 28 hours. But then there are the SP800N’s that have an advertised combined battery life 18 hours.

But that advertised battery life of 18 hours is for when these earbuds have their active noise cancelation turned on. Now personally I only use the Active Noise cancelation on any of my ANC earbuds when I have to… so these earbuds actually have an advertised battery life 26 hours with their ANC turned off.

So over all all of these earbuds have decent battery lives but I think the real winners here are the Pixel Buds cause they have a combined battery life of 24 hours but they also give you wireless charging if you want it. And even though the SP800N’s do have a combined battery life 26 hours… its not all that impressive cause their case is significantly larger than all of these other cases.

But now lets talk about fit… all four of these earbuds fit like your standard in ear ear buds. None of these earbuds go in super deep into your ear canal like the Sony WF-1000XM3’s do and none of these earbuds just sit at the edge of your ear canal like the AirPods Pro do. Now all of these earbuds fit well but I do feel that the SP800N’s are the best fitting ear buds here cause they do come included with optional ear fins if you want them. And the ear fins on the SP800N’s really do help with keeping these earbuds in place. Now even though the Pixel Buds also have ear fins, their ear fins are one size fits all and you also can’t remove them. So there is the chance these ear fins might not work for you. Either cause they’re too big or too small. But then there are the Galaxy Buds which do have adjustable ear fins but even their largest ear fins might still be too small for some people. And then there are the Jabra’s that just don’t have ear fins. So over all, all of these earbuds fit just fine but if you’re looking for the most secure fit here than you’ll might want to go with the Sony’s cause of their larger ear fins.

Now when it comes to bluetooth connectivity. All three of these earbuds have zero latency across the board when you try to watch movies or videos on your phone. But when it comes to their set ups all of the earbuds here except for the Jabra’s each establish a connection with your phone. So if you want to use one earbud at a time you can use either one it doesn’t matter.

Where as the Jabra’s are using a hero and sidekick set up meaning that one earbud in this case the right ear bud actually establishes a connection with your phone and then relays that signal over to the left earbud. So if you just want to use one earbud at a time you gotta use the correct earbud. In this case the right earbud.

But one advantage the Jabra’s have over these other earbuds is that they can be connected to any to Bluetooth devices at the same time. So if you’re a power user you can easily hot swap from one device another. Where as with these other earbuds switching between devices isn’t as seamless.

But now lets talk about listening to music with these earbuds. Now the Pixel buds are the only ear buds that don’t have a customizable EQ here. But the pixel buds should be able to please most people. These earbuds have a slight emphasis on the mids so vocals are pronounced and they also have a decent amount of bass to them. Then there are the Galaxy buds Plus which do have few EQ settings to choose from but I think these earbuds sound best when they’re set to their clear. While in their clear EQ these earbuds put an emphasis on the mids so vocals are very pronounced but their bass isn’t as strong as the Pixel buds. But these earbuds do have better clarity. So if you’re someone that likes a neutral or brighter EQ than the Galaxy buds plus are the way to go. But then there’s the Jabra’s which have a fully customizable EQ. But the stand out characteristic here about these earbud is their bass. If you’re someone that likes a lot of bass in their music then these are the way to go. But then there are the SP800N’s and these are the best sounding earbuds here and they can do it all. First off these earbuds have a fully customizable EQ so you can make them sound however you want. If you want a neutral or brighter sounding EQ you can do that and these earbuds have the same great clarity that you’ll find on the Galaxy Buds. Or if you like a bass heavy EQ you can also do that, and these earbuds also have a lot more bass than the Jabra’s. The only thing that you gotta lookout for one these earbuds is that right out of the box the stock EQ on these earbuds have way to much bass which I do find to be over powering. But like I said since these earbuds have a fully customizable EQ you can go in and fix them. So over all, pixel buds sound good enough to please most people, the Galaxy Buds are better for neutral or brighter sound signatures, the Jabra’s are better for people who like bass, and the Sony’s can do it all.

Now when it comes to your media controls, the Jabra’s are the only earbuds here that don’t have touch pads. So if you don’t want to have to deal with touch pads then the Jarab’s are your only answer here. Now out of all of these touch pads, I think the Pixel buds have the best touch pads here. These touch pads are very accurate, they do a really good job of recognizing their swiping gestures and they also do a good job of rejecting inputs when you’re just adjusting these earbuds. And you have full media control with either of these earbuds. So even if you just have one in bud in you can still play, pause, skip through your music, and even adjust your volume all with out having to take you phone out of your pocket. Next up are the Sony’s which I think have the second best touch pads here. No through Sony’s app you can choose what each of these earbuds do and just like the pixel buds these touch pads are very accurate. But personally I still prefer the pixel buds touch pad cause you still have full media controls even if you jut have one earbud in. And finally there are the Galaxy Buds touch pads which are okay, but these earbuds can be a little finicky by comparison. Sometimes to they get a little too excited and they start to put in false inputs or sometimes they miss inputs.

But now lets talk about the ambient mode on these earbuds. Now unfortunately the Pixel buds don’t have an ambient mode and im really keeping my fingers crossed that Google with eventually add an ambient to these earbud cause an ambient mode on earbuds is really useful for like when you’re walking around the city, at the grocery store or even when you’re just watching videos at home.

Now out of this line up I do gotta say that the Ambient mode on the Jabra’s is the worst here. Now even though the ambient mode on the Jabra’s is decent, it sounds natural and it does a good job of blocking out wind noise when walking outdoors… if you raise their ambient mode past 50% they do start to develop a hissing the background which is very noticeable and distracting when you’re watching videos with these earbuds.

Where as the ambient mode on the Galaxy Buds doesn’t develop any such hissing in the back ground. But without a doubt the Sony’s do have the best performing ambient mode here. Now the ambient mode on the Sony’s sounds the most natural here cause even though the ambient mode on the Galaxy buds does sound much better than when they first came out… it does still sound a little tiny compared to the Sony’s. And the Sony’s also do a better job of blocking out wind noise than these other two earbuds.

Now like I hinted at a little earlier in this video the SP800N’s also have active noise cancelation. Now even though the active noise cancelation on these earbuds does do something. These earbuds block out very little noise, and these earbuds block out nowhere near as much noise as the AirPods Pro or Sennheiser Momentum 2’s. So personally I think the Ambient Mode on these earbuds is way more important that their ANC.

But something that the Pixel buds does have over all of these other other earbuds is that they have Hey google support. So you can just be like hey google and start talking to your assistant where as with this other earbuds you do gotta press and hold to active your assistant.

But finally here’s the microphone test now I feel the microphone on both the Jabra’s is good enough to get the job done for a quick phone call but they don’t do the best job of blocking out that AC unit.

And the same goes for the Sony’s. They sound good enough to get the job done for a quick phone call but they don’t do a great job of blocking out that AC unit.

Where as the microphone on the Galaxy buds plus does do a slightly better job of blocking out that AC unit.

But finally there’s the microphone on the Pixel buds. And the Pixel Buds does the best job of blocking out that AC unit you can bearly even hear it. Cause if we were to scwith over to my lapel microphone you’re going to clearly hear that AC unit. But if we switch back over to the Pixel buds, its completely blocked out which is very imrepssive.

So over all, like I said at the beginning of this video I think the Sony WF-SP800N’s are a great pair of workout earbuds and I actually prefer these to the Powerbeats pro cause they have a really good ambient mode. And when it comes to comparing these earbud to today’s popular everyday carry wirelsss earbuds… the SP800N’s are the best performing ones here. These earbuds are the best sounding earbuds here, you can make them sound how ever you want, they have the best ambient mode here cause it sounds the most natural and they block out the most amount of wind noise, and they also have really good battery life if you use them with their ANC turned off. But for me the size of their case is a really big deal breaker to use as everyday carry earbuds. This carrying case is 4 times thicker than my Pixel 4 XL. But hey, if you’re willing to put up with it by all means daily drive the SP800N’s. But ultimately I still think that the best logical everyday carry wireless earbuds here for android users is going to the Galaxy buds cause of their price, tiny carrying case and better performing ambient mode… but if you do want more bass in your music than the Jabra’s are the way to go. But personally I still really do like the Pixel buds cause these things have amazing build quality. But if google really wants their Pixel Buds to take off they need to add an ambient mode.
