Samsung Galaxy Buds2 Pro audio issue after firmware update

Samsung recently unveiled its flagship headphones, the Galaxy Buds2 Pro, which support 24-bit Hi-Fi audio and active noise cancellation to eliminate unwanted sounds.

Other features like Bluetooth 5.3, IPX7 water resistance, and up to 18 hours of battery life make this an incredibly attractive package.

However, it seems that Galaxy Buds2 Pro users are currently experiencing issues with their headphones.

Samsung Galaxy Buds2 Pro audio issue

Many users (1,2,3,4) reported an issue where their Galaxy Buds2 Pro makes a shrill noise.


I noticed loud white noise when using ANC. It happened yesterday. I checked another bud and there is no white noise. It affects the music. Anyone have this problem?

When I set my induction hob to maximum and wear my buds 2 pro, I sometimes get an irritating buzz in my headphones. Has anyone else encountered the same problem?

The issue is said to have started after the latest vRTOS 1.0 firmware update and has been causing an annoying sound ever since.

For some users, the audio keeps ringing intermittently, followed by random volume adjustments after a few seconds apart.

The shrill sound seems to persist even when ANC (Active Noise Cancelling) is activated.

Potential workarounds

Fortunately, we found a workaround that may help resolve the issue for some users. You can follow the steps mentioned below for a temporary solution.


Some users also suggest disabling the “Audio 360” option to possibly fix audio-related issues.

We’ll keep an eye out for further developments and update the article when something noteworthy comes along.
