Samsung makes some of the best wireless earbuds you can buy today, and the manufacturer is already starting to kick off deals ahead of Black Friday. The Galaxy Buds Live launched last year alongside the Note 20 series and immediately got a lot of attention for their unique design, and right now you can pick them up for just $100 at Samsung (opens in new tab), a full $70 off their launch price.
The earbuds have a distinct design that's inherently ergonomic, and they fit snugly within your ear — making them a great option if you want earbuds for all-day use. They feature 12mm drivers that sound fantastic for most music genres, you can easily customize the sound, control music playback and more via built-in Spotify integration, and with IPX2 dust and water resistance, they're usable for workouts as well.
Of course, the biggest selling point for the Buds Live is the active noise cancellation; these earbuds do an outstanding job tuning out ambient noises in your vicinity. They're particularly great at cutting out low-frequency sounds like passing traffic, the constant hum of air conditioning units, or jet engines. They also have three mics that make them a solid choice for voice or video calls. Oh, and they're available in four color options, including the gorgeous Mystic Bronze variant.
Save 41% on the Galaxy Buds Live
The Galaxy Buds Live easily deliver six hours of music playback from a full charge, with the case holding enough power for two additional charges. You get wireless charging with the case, so if you're using a recent Samsung flagship like the Galaxy S21 Ultra or the Z Fold 3, you can use it to charge the Buds Live wirelessly.
While the Buds Live aren't the latest earbuds from Samsung, they're still going strong a year after their release. I tried these out against the Galaxy Buds Pro, and they hold their ground when it comes to sound quality and noise isolation. And at just $100, they are a steal when you look at the caliber of sound on offer. If you've been waiting to get your hands on these, now is the best time to do so.
