Samsung Galaxy Buds2 Pro audio glitching (screeching noise) after latest firmware update (potential workarounds inside)

Samsung recently unveiled its flagship earbuds, Galaxy Buds2 Pro, which support 24bit 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 it an incredibly enticing package.

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

The issue reportedly started after the latest firmware vRTOS 1.0 update and is causing an annoying sound ever since.

For some users, the audio keeps echoing intermittently followed by random adjustments in volume after a few seconds of interval.

The screeching sound seems to persist even when the ANC (Active Noise Cancelling) is turned on.

Some users also suggest turning off the ‘360 audio’ option to potentially fix audio-related issues.
