The Samsung Galaxy Buds+ earned our Most Wanted accolade when we reviewed them back in March thanks to their pleasant sound, discreet form factor, and impeccable battery life. Even at their full MSRP of $150, the Buds+ are a fair deal considering the current true wireless market — but right now, you can scoop a pair up for just $120 on eBay.

Just a few days after we saw the original Galaxy Buds on sale, we have our first significant discount on the updated Galaxy Buds+. While the original Galaxy Buds already came highly recommended, this refreshed model includes a few welcome additions like an extra voice-detection microphone and improved battery life. Right now, you can grab a pair from AT&T for only $119.99 — saving yourself $30 off the MSRP in the process.
Samsung's latest wireless earbuds look to be its best yet, with tight Spotify integration and improved sound and battery life for a competitive $149 price point. The spec sheet is impressive, but over the last week, some details have been called into question, with the multi-point connection feature disappearing from the spec sheet, as discovered by SamMobile. Samsung has now issued an official statement, indicating that the feature is present — but only if both devices are Galaxy phones or tablets.
Samsung's upgraded Galaxy Buds+ may not be the noise-canceling true wireless earbuds of our dreams, but they do include some meaningful improvements that make them worth considering. Battery life is the big one, going up to 11 hours on a single charge from just six in the first-generation model. A new speaker and mic system promises better audio quality, and there are also some other useful new features onboard.
Samsung surprised quite a few of us with the Galaxy Buds that launched at the same time as the Galaxy S10 smartphone lineup — not only were they affordable but they sounded pretty decent too (as I detailed in my review). Details about a follow up are now starting to emerge, and it sounds like they'll come with in-vogue active noise cancellation tech.
