OneRepublic’s remaster of “Counting Stars” had a bit of help from the Samsung Galaxy Buds 2 Pro


When songs are being produced, they’re generally done in a studio environment involving expensive professional audio equipment. This allows producers to hear every single note, every beat, and all the subtleties that make a great song. The only problem is that since the average listener doesn’t have access to these types of equipment, the listening experience in the studio versus that of your average pair of headphones or speakers can be very different.

This is something that OneRepublic’s lead and music producer, Ryan Tedder, understands. This is why in celebration of the band’s hit single “Counting Stars” hitting 10 years old, Tedder decided to put together a remastering of the song (which you can check out below) but decided that in order to put himself in the shoes of his fans and listeners, part of the production process involved him using Samsung’s Galaxy Buds 2 Pro earbuds.

“When I’m in the studio listening to songs like ‘Counting Stars,’ I’m hearing them on professional speakers. As soon as I began to reimagine this one, it was essential for me to get out of the studio and have the listener experience. Using my Galaxy Buds2 Pro, I was able to review every version of the song exactly as our fans would hear it, and I’m confident that listeners will love this reimagined version as much as I do.”

The Samsung Galaxy Buds 2 Pro is one of the best true wireless earbuds that you can find in the market today. It is perfect for the average user looking for a pair of noise-canceling earbuds, but for fans of music, the Galaxy Buds 2 Pro is more than capable of living up to their expectations.

This is thanks to the use of Hi-Fi 24-bit Audio that offers high dynamic range and crystal clear audio, while also sporting new coaxial 2-way speakers that offer richer sound and pause-free transfers. The earbuds also support 360-degree for a more immersive listening experience, and also boasts features like Intelligent Conversation Mode that lets you have conversations with people next to you without having to remove the earbuds.

The earbuds are also a great companion at the gym, thanks to its IPX7 rating. The battery life is also decent at 5 hours with ANC on, and 8 hours with ANC off, and up to 30 hours in total when used with the charging case. So if you’re looking for a pair of true wireless earbuds, then these might be worth considering.
