Sure, "Team Apple" folks go wild for AirPods. But if you have a Samsung Galaxy (or any Android phone for that matter), you can score a pair wireless earbuds that work just as well — or better. And we do mean score: Just for today, Samsung Galaxy Buds 2 are down to $95 (55 bucks off!) at Amazon. That’s not bad for mini-cans that have earned a five-star rating from more than 10,000 shoppers.
Loud and clear
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 distractions. "I am blown away from the raw quality of the sound coming out of these!" a five-star reviewer said. "I had the AirPods Pro for a bit, and these sound similar, but tuned for a tad more bass. This is exactly what I was looking for. You also have a couple of preset EQ options to tune it more to your liking or listening habits for the day."
The Samsung Galaxy Buds 2 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. "They stay firmly in my ear providing both good sound isolation and stability during outside work and indoor workouts with sweating, running and rowing," a happy customer said.
Skip the AirPods
If you’re looking for a great alternative to Apple AirPods, the Samsung Galaxy Buds 2 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.
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. Plus, in a pinch, you charge up for an hour of playback with a five-minute quick boost.
The Samsung Galaxy Buds 2 — which come in a few fun colors, including White, Graphite, Lavender and Olive — 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.
If you have Amazon Prime, you’ll get free shipping, of course. Not yet a member? No problem. You can sign up for your free 30-day trial here. (And by the way, those without Prime still get free shipping on orders of $25 or more.)
