Samsung's premium audio products brand, AKG, has quietly launched a new pair of noise-canceling earbuds in Korea. Called the AKG N400 earbuds, these have been launched as the rivals to the Galaxy Buds+ and are listed on the company's Korea website for 229,000 Won (Rs 14,112 approximately).
The newly launched N400 earbuds bring with them IPX7 waterproof technology and can withstand up to 1-meter water for 30 minutes. They also offer up to 5 hours of battery life with ANC for up to six hours. The earbuds promise a full charge within 2 hours and offer up to 12 hours of battery life on standby mode.
The AKG N400 earbuds also support features such as Samsung's Bixby, Google Assistant and Siri and provide 1 hour of battery life when charged for 10 minutes in the Qi-certified quick charging mode.
With the earbuds, Samsung is also offering support for features such as TalkThru mode that drowns the music so that users can have a conversation without removing the earbuds. There's also an Ambient Aware mode that lowers the volume automatically to make the user aware of their surroundings while listening to music.
For now, the earbuds have only been announced for purchase in Samsung's home country, South Korea with no information being shared on the global launch for them.
