Sure, 'team Apple' folks go wild for AirPods. But if you have a Samsung Galaxy (or any Android phone for that matter), you can get your very own wireless earbuds that work just as well — or better.
Right now, Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro are on sale for $150, or $50 off, for Memorial Day at Amazon — but today's your last day to take advantage of the 25 percent markdown on these super-popular earbuds. They've earned a five-star rating from nearly 16,000 reviewers — and they can be yours with just click. Like all orders over $25, you can get them shipped to you free even if you don't have Amazon Prime. But if you sign up for your free 30-day trial now, you can get all the perks, all the time.
Earbud shoppers are looking for excellent audio, first and foremost. These Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro offer crisp sound and punchy bass, thanks to an 11mm woofer and a 6.5mm tweeter built-in to each bud. And with its impressive eight hours per charge plus the additional 12 hours you can get using the included wireless charging case, you're looking at 20 hours of use altogether — nearly a full day! Plus, in a pinch you charge up for an hour of playback with a five-minute quick boost. This comes in handy when you're about to go for a run and your buds are at zero.
Calls will sound crystal clear with three microphones (two outer and one inner); at the same time these buds' four levels of active noise cancellation will block just about all ambient background distraction.
The Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro are water- and sweat-resistant, so you can wear them during a workout without skipping a beat. And with their included customizable ear tips, you’ll get a fantastic fit. "These earbuds may be small but they pack a punch! Great sound, the bass is phenomenal, the noise cancellation is amazing, and overall great value for the price! Highly recommend purchasing these earbuds, you will not regret it!," added another very happy customer.
Skip the AirPods
If you’re looking for a great alternative to Apple AirPods, the Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro pair flawlessly with Samsung Galaxy and Android smartphones at a fraction of the price. Just open up the charging case and they’ll instantly sync up via the Samsung Wearable app.
"What a difference," a satisfied shopper wrote. "The sound quality is excellent. I am very pleased with my purchase. The Samsung Wearable app is easy to use and pairing is a no brainer."
Bonus: The charging case doubles as a wireless charging pad for your phone too. It even works the other way: Your phone (the Samsung Galaxy S10 or higher) can give your Samsung buds additional juice — something you can’t do with AirPods.
"The noise cancellation is very good for ear buds," a happy shopper shared. "A major factor here is fit — they have to be snug to drown out noise. When I work in my wood shop and have these on, they do an excellent job filtering out power tools. I also like the ambient sound option. I can put these in and hear almost better than my normal hearing. My family members try to sneak up on me since I wear headphones a lot when I work. I turn around and say 'Yes' whenever they try it now."
