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.
Today only, Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro are on sale for $170, or $30 off, for Memorial Day at Best Buy. That’s a 15 percent markdown on these super-popular earbuds. How awesome are they? Well, they've earned a five-star rating from nearly 800 reviewers.
However, this crazy-good sale expires at the end of the day, as part of Best Buy's 'Deal of the Day,'
Loud and clear
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. And shoppers even use these buds to get a good night's sleep. "The noise-canceling is great. I work night shift and when I have trouble sleeping during the day I [use] these," shared a well-rested five-star Best Buy reviewer.
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 buds pack a serious punch. The sound is crisp and clear. I had no problems with the buds staying in place even during workouts," 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.
"Since I already had the Wearables app installed, I just added a new device and bam, instant connection," raved a satisfied Best Buy shopper.
Bonus: The charging case doubles as a wireless charging pad for your phone too. It even works the other way: Your phone (for Samsung Galaxy S10 or higher), can give your Samsung buds additional juice — something you can’t do with AirPods. Reported a delighted five-star reviewer, "These things are awesome. I love that I can wirelessly charge with my S20 Ultra."
At $170 today only (was $200), the Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro — which come in a few fun colors, including Phantom Violet, Phantom Black and Phantom Silver — are one of the best true wireless earbuds out there with robust and dynamic audio, a long battery life, a top-tier wireless charging case and an excellent fit. And shoppers love these little guys. Even iPhone users can't get enough of them.
"I am an Apple iPhone user, but I love my Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro," raved a savvy shopper. "They are more comfortable to wear compared to AirPods Pro and sound even better...These buds reproduce sounds that AirPods Pro couldn't."
Our advice? Snag these wireless earbuds before they sell out!
