Digital Trends recommends them for their great battery life, ergonomic design, and amazing sound performance.

For design, Samsung gave the Galaxy Buds a lightweight and compact profile complete with rubber ear fins and soft runner ear tips to provide a very solid fit and impressive seal. They also carry an IPX2 rating which means they can survive the rigors of a sweaty workout. All these features make the Galaxy Buds some of the most comfortable earbuds we’ve tested, suitable for go-anywhere, do-anything performance.

The impressive seal of the Galaxy Buds allows you to experience the full force of their sound quality which includes warm bass and low-mid response as well as impressive highs. They perform well in a variety of music genres, and in fact, sound as good or even better than the more expensive models from Apple and Jabra. Sound profiles can be tweaked so they match your preference by simply adjusting a range of equalizer modes. You can also make use of the app-based customizations that let you assign a function on the earbuds’ touch-sensitive surfaces, such as skipping tracks and changing the volume.

From looks to performance, the Samsung Galaxy buds serve their purpose well. The best part? They cost less than the offerings from reputable brands like Apple, Jabra, and Sennheiser. Order the black version now for a sale price of $108.
