Headphones always make a great gift idea for all the family or simply as a treat for yourself. This holiday season, you can save $50 on the Apple AirPods Pro or Samsung Galaxy Buds+ at Amazon, giving you big savings and plenty of choice for how you want to listen. Even better, both are ready to be delivered in time for Christmas. If you’re looking for other headphone deals, we’ve got you covered there, too.
Samsung Galaxy Buds+ — $100, was $150
Ordinarily priced at $150, the Samsung Galaxy Buds+ are down to just $100 and that’s a pretty great deal. We were big fans of them in our Samsung Galaxy Buds+ review, appreciating their fantastic 11-hour battery life along with their comfortable and lightweight design. The only frustrating thing is that the charging case only carries one recharge but that’s less of an issue in earbuds with an 11-hour battery life all on their own. After all, that still means 22 hours of listening, which should be more than enough to ensure you don’t need to charge too often. Impressively, just three minutes of charging returns an hour of playtime, which is super useful if you’re not very organized. The Samsung Galaxy Buds+ also offer some isolation from distracting noises, which is pretty useful, and a welcome feature at this price.
Apple AirPods Pro — $200, was $250
Our Apple AirPods Pro review called them Apple’s best buds yet and we stand by that. If you’re a big Apple fan, you’re going to love their simple form even more so. They have the Apple aesthetic perfectly and this minimalist look is backed up with some great features. That includes Adaptive EQ which automatically tunes music to the shape of your ear meaning you get superior sound quality each step of the way. Alongside that is Active Noise Cancellation so you get to enjoy your music, no matter how busy your surroundings. There’s a Transparency mode, too, for when you need to switch back to listening to the world around you. The only real downside here is that battery life is only about 4-5 hours but the charging case bumps that up to 24 hours before you need a power source.
