With Galaxy Buds+, Samsung has added an attractive True-Wireless model to its range. Thanks to the long battery life of over eleven hours, you don’t have to worry about empty batteries when travelling, and these tiny in-ears also have a few plus points when it comes to compatibility. The missing functions on iOS and Android, like the quick Spotify connection, the low-latency gaming mode and lack of multipoint, are the only things that cloud an otherwise positive overall impression. In our opinion, their solid and well-structured sound certainly counts in their favour, but it might be a bit too tame, especially for bass-loving young consumers. Listening before you buy is highly recommended.

Samsung Galaxy Buds+

The Galaxy Buds prove an ideal partner to Android smartphone devices. These headphones are lightweight, practical and a solid candidate for daily mobile use requirements. The touch function is also a very user-friendly and welcome addition. Sound quality is relatively appealing for the level of application intended, but it won’t meet the more discerning demands of audiophiles. There are some drawbacks to the Galaxy Buds worth noting. Personally, I would have hoped for support for codecs like aptX, not to mention iOS support via app. Nevertheless, the Galaxy Buds prove that Samsung can hold its own against Apple in terms of price, quality and sound performance.
