The Apple AirPods heralded the true wireless earbud revolution a couple of years ago, but they’re hardly the only game in town today. There is a myriad of great true wireless earbuds on the market now, and if you’ve got an Android device (or maybe the steep price tag of the AirPods just turns you off), you’ve got some options.
One of the best AirPods alternatives is the new Samsung Galaxy Buds, which deliver superior sound and offer a better value than Apple’s offering — but why pay retail prices? Here, we’ve rounded up all the best Samsung Galaxy Buds deals that can save you even more while you bask in the glow of true wireless freedom.

Samsung Galaxy Buds vs. Samsung Galaxy Buds+
As with the AirPods, you have a couple options to consider when shopping around for Samsung Galaxy Buds deals. Your main choice will be between the standard Galaxy Buds or the Galaxy Buds+, the plus model being the more expensive pick that features a few enhancements over the original that might be worth the extra cash you’ll spend on them.
The Samsung Galaxy Buds are among the best of the current crop of next-generation true wireless earbuds that have followed in the footsteps of the AirPods and they deliver pretty much everything you want in a solid, no-frills pair of Bluetooth earphones. They’re light, comfortable in the ear, have a slick design, offer an impressive six-hour battery life (plus another seven hours or so with the case), and, unlike the AirPods, the Galaxy Buds come standard with a wireless charging clamshell. Most importantly, they simply sound good with a nice array of equalization features, customizable settings, and an ambient mode that keeps you aware of your surroundings.
The Samsung Galaxy Buds+ only improve on that great design. One of the best upgrades is the battery; while the six-hour battery life of the original Galaxy Buds themselves is quite good, the limited charging capabilities of the case was one of the few gripes we had with it. In contrast, the Galaxy Buds+ boast a very nice 11-hour battery life which is doubled by the charging case. That brings the Galaxy Buds+ up to speed with other contenders such as the AirPods, which offer about a full days’ worth of juice between the earbuds and case.
Where Samsung’s Galaxy Buds+ outshine the AirPods, however, is their sound. Mediocre audio has always been a sticking point of ours with the AirPods, so if sound quality is something you put a premium on, the Galaxy Buds+ are simply the better choice. That’s even truer when you consider that the Galaxy Buds+ are around the same price or slightly cheaper than the standard Apple AirPods (not to mention the pricier AirPods Pro), and these Samsung Galaxy Buds deals can let you score a pair for even less than that.
