Deal | You can snag the Samsung Galaxy Buds with wireless charging case right now for just US$99
The future is wireless, or so they say. Well, we all know better—wired headphones and 3.5mm jacks are the best. Most of you shared that opinion when quizzed about it a few weeks ago. Wireless audio hardware still has a place, though, and Samsung’s Galaxy Buds has to be one of the best on the market at the moment.
Samsung released the Galaxy Buds back in March alongside the Galaxy S10 phones. The buds have an MSRP of US$129, but are currently available for US$99.99, or US$30 off. 23% discount for those who love hard numbers.
The Galaxy Buds are Apple AirPods 2 competitors, and do live up to expectations for the most part. It also helps that AirPods 2 cost around US$160. The newer AirPods Pro cost a massive US$250, though.
It’s important to note that the Galaxy Buds don’t have noise cancellation. Neither do the Apple Airpods 2, though. Users have also reported issues with mic quality, especially on calls, but your mileage may vary.
At the current price of US$99, it’s a bit hard to ignore the Galaxy Buds. But then, Samsung will likely debut a Galaxy Buds 2 alongside the Galaxy S11 phones next year, so waiting for those may be a good decision too.
