Samsung's latest Galaxy Buds+ are some of our favorite true wireless earbuds, but we shouldn't forget the original Galaxy Buds either. Although they lack some of the fancy new features found in this year's model, they still sound and feel great. They arguably even look better, thanks to a matte finish as opposed to the gloss of the Buds+. The price difference between the two models is usually only $20, but eBay is currently selling open-box first-gen Buds for only $65 (50% off).
The Korean phenomenons BTS and Samsung have teamed up to release special editions of the Galaxy S20+, S20+ 5G, and the Galaxy Buds+, as previously leaked. Like the Galaxy Note10's Star Wars edition and the Galaxy S10+ Olympic Games version before them, the products come with cosmetic software changes, another coat of paint, custom packaging, and extra goodies in the box. They'll even be available in the US, which is unusual.
They're not Samsung's most current earbuds, but the first-generation Galaxy Buds are still a very solid true wireless option, featuring conveniences like USB-C and wireless charging. They retail for $130, but you can pick up a pair today for just $90 on Amazon.
The first-generation Galaxy Buds were released last year to great acclaim for their well-rounded sound quality, above-average battery life, and comfortable design. Even though they aren't the new kids on the block anymore, they're still a solid option that's hard to resist now that they're so cheap.

Back when I first reviewed them in March, I was very impressed with the Samsung Galaxy Buds+: they managed to improve on the already-solid original Galaxy Buds in a couple of key ways while keeping their price competitive at an MSRP of $150. I've been using the Buds+ ever since, and after nearly 200 hours of listening, they're still not easy to find fault with.
As we're getting closer to the official announcement of the Samsung Galaxy S20 lineup, more details are continuing to leak regarding the upcoming handset. After seeing renders of the phone's official covers, new information reveals early buyers should get a free pair of Galaxy Buds+ when pre-ordering the phone.
It's still New Year's resolution time (right?), and that means plenty of us are trying to keep an eye on our fitness goals. If you've been hitting the gym, though, you know it can get grunty in there. Luckily, Samsung has a deal to help drown out the gym noise and track your hard work in the process: pick up a Galaxy Fit along with a pair of Galaxy Buds in Aura Glow Silver for a crazily low $150 ($80 off).
When we reviewed the Samsung Galaxy buds, we liked their design, sound quality, battery life, and price. Even though the latter was more than reasonable at $130, you can now snatch them for just $75, provided you don't care about the official packaging.
The Galaxy Buds is Samsung's third generation of fully wireless Bluetooth earbuds, and it's on sale this weekend for just $80. Verizon is selling both colors for $100, down from $130, with an additional $20 rebate available in the form of a prepaid debit card.
