OnePlus's new active noise canceling truly wireless Buds Pro are now formally A Thing — but not a thing you can get right now. They promise to muffle up to 40dB of noise, pipe sound courtesy of two 11mm drivers, support Dolby Atmos and Bluetooth 5.2 (with latency as low as 94ms), last for up to 38 hours with the bundled charging case, and they fast charge up to 10 hours of playtime off just a 10-minute charge. That's a decent list of specs, and the nearly rock-bottom price of $150 could be a good value — if they work well.
Although it seems like many of our readers have made the jump to true wireless earbuds, there's still plenty of smartphone owners out there relying on wired headphones to listen to music. If you've been waiting for the right deal to make the jump, Samsung's Galaxy Buds+ are on sale today at Amazon for $79 — just a dollar above its all-time low.
Samsung's been cultivating a reputation as a reliable alternative in the space of premium true wireless earbuds. So perhaps it's not surprising that someone was so desperate for details in its next headphone iteration that they datamined an unreleased version of the official Samsung accessory support app. And thus was any surprise for the forthcoming Galaxy Buds2 mercilessly spoiled, just the way we like it.
Wireless audio is everywhere these days, and you probably already have a couple of pairs of earbuds lying around your house. If you've been looking to step up your experience without breaking the bank, you can grab Samsung's excellent Galaxy Buds Pro for their lowest price yet, today only.

If you're still on the fence, Samsung's Galaxy Buds Pro are some of the best TWEs you can buy today, and Woot has them for a price matching their all-time low right now.
Sony's long-awaited WF-1000XM4 earbuds are here, and by all accounts, they're fantastic. You know what they look like on the outside, but in the words of ethically questionable surgeons, "What about the guts?" A Chinese audiophile site has meticulously dissected the ANC earbuds and documented each and every step in beautiful detail.
As most phones have left the headphone jack behind for good, true wireless earbuds have gone from optional accessories to must-haves for on-the-go listening. While Samsung, Apple, and Jabra fight it out in the premium space, there's still plenty of competition available for low and mid-range options. Amazon is no stranger to providing quality alternatives at lower prices — it's kept the budget Android tablet alive single-handedly with its Fire tablets. Whether it can do the same with earbuds is another question altogether.
Sony hasn't upgraded its true wireless earbuds since 2019, but thanks to several leaks over the last few months, we're starting to get a good idea of what to expect from the upcoming WF-1000XM4s.

At $200, Samsung's Galaxy Buds Pro are the company's most expensive pair of true wireless earbuds yet. While they justify the asking price, who doesn't want a sweet discount? Well, if you've waited till now, you're in luck. Woot is slashing $30 off the launch price, bringing the buds down to $170.
RHA's first attempt at true wireless earbuds left a little to be desired, but the upgraded TrueConnect 2 that came out this summer offered enhanced sound and better battery life. The British audio brand is now back with a completely redesigned model that features active noise cancellation and wireless charging, as well as a brand-new Connect app.
