In almost every respect, Samsung’s Galaxy Buds Pro handily defeat the AirPods Pro.
That said, which pair of earbuds is right for you will largely depend on which mobile platform you use.

iPhone owners will get more out of the AirPods Pro, and Android users are better off with the Galaxy Buds Pro.

Apple’s AirPods Pro and Samsung’s Galaxy Buds Pro represent the best that these mobile behemoths have to offer in the wireless earbuds space.

Both models feature premium sound, noise cancellation, good battery life, and wireless charging cases, all in a compact package that you can take anywhere. They’re ideal alternatives for larger headphones, like over-ear models, that aren’t nearly as portable. 

While both sets of wireless earbuds are specifically designed for their respective mobile platforms, they can be used to listen to audio and take phone calls with any device with Bluetooth connectivity, whether it’s a phone, tablet, or computer. 

With that said, neither of these earbuds offer their full functionality if you use them outside of the ecosystem they were designed to work with. You’ll lose the ability to control certain key features, like noise cancellation, built-in controls, and voice assistants. That’s because, unsurprisingly, neither Apple nor Samsung have made the necessary apps for finer controls on their rival platforms.

With that in mind, iPhone users shouldn’t really consider the Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro, and likewise, Android users shouldn’t buy the Apple AirPods Pro. Nor should anyone decide which ecosystem/phone to buy based on which wireless earbuds are better — you can get wireless earbuds that are platform agnostic that come with full functionality and apps available on both platforms, like Sony’s WF-1000XM3 or Bose’s QuietComfort Earbuds.
