Samsung Galaxy Buds still down to $79 at Best Buy for Cyber Week

It’s been a week since Black Friday and yet we’re still seeing some incredible Cyber Week deals that you do not want to miss out on. We’re seeing discounts in every category, from Home Theater and 4K TVs, to Cyber Week Headphone deals. Right now, at Best Buy, you can score Samsung Galaxy Buds for only $79. These truly wireless earbuds normally sell for $130; here they’re $50 off, which represents an incredible savings.

When it comes to truly wireless earbuds, the eminently affordable Samsung Galaxy Buds are truly impressive. A better design of the new chip and better battery life make these a great place to start if you’re jumping into the world of wireless earbuds, cutting the cord, or upgrading from an older pair. The Samsung Galaxy Buds allow you to create personal space wherever you are, making any train car or street corner into your office or entertainment center.

The reason these buds can create a personal oasis wherever you are is their sound. which we’ll get to in a minute. First we want to talk about the battery, which holds six hours per charge, and hour more than its similarly priced competitors. Also, the case (which these buds come with) acts as a wireless charger giving an additional seven hours. That means that you don’t need to worry about running out of battery for 13 hours at a time! If you’re rushing, a quick 15-minute charge in the case gives you 1.7 hours of playtime.

As for sound, the buds’ ergonomic design and soft silicone eartips actually help deliver better sonic performance to your ears, where they create a seal; our reviewers noted especially warm bass and a reduction of tinny, high-pitched sounds. The dual microphones in each earbud are extremely helpful for conversations. The buds can analyze the volume of the noise around you, distinguishing which microphone to use when. They are also lightweight and compact, so you don’t have to worry about them jostling or falling our of place, and their IPX2 rating provides some cover if it starts raining or you get sweaty on a run (or business call). Our reviewers don’t rate the sound quite as highly as AirPods, but there’s not a drastic difference in quality (unlike the price).

As we head into a long winter, creating your own spaces has never been more important, and now is the best time to invest in wireless earbuds or headphones for that purpose. Check out these Cyber Week Headphone deals, or head to Best Buy, where you can score $50 off Samsung Galaxy Buds. They’re only $80, down from $130.
