TL;DR: The slick black Samsung Galaxy Buds are on sale for $119.98 at Amazon, saving you $10.01.
The Aug. 7 Samsung Unpacked event revolves around the release of the Galaxy Note 10. But there’s something more to today’s unveiling than a powerful, new chip for the future of Samsung phones: Welcome to #DONGLELIFE, baby.
Yup, Samsung is probably nixing the headphone jack. But when a sick pair of truly wireless earbuds like the Galaxy Buds exist, the change isn’t so bad. Grab your pair with the charging case for less than $120, their lowest price ever at Amazon.
Okay, $10 off isn’t something we’d usually freak about. But it’s the same story for AirPods users: Premium headphones never go on sale and you take any discount you can get. Best Buy and Samsung.com still have them at full price, so.
AirPods have been the truly wireless earbuds to beat since their release in 2016, and Samsung is the only tech giant to even come close. The Galaxy Buds are truly fierce competitors: These troupers can last an entire hour longer than the AirPods on one charge and can charge wirelessly from any of the Galaxy S10 phones.
Connection isn’t as seamless as that of the AirPods, which skip pairing all together using Apple’s W1 chip. The Galaxy Buds require you to have both the SmartThings app and Galaxy Wearables app, but it’s not a huge deal. What is great about that second app, however, is that there’s a “Find my buds” feature if you lose one.
A sequel pair of the Galaxy Buds may be on the horizon as a response to the AirPods 3, but they’ll likely be significantly more expensive — so hop on this pair now.
Regularly $129.99, you can save $10 and get the black pair for $119.98.
