Even one year after release, the Galaxy Buds+ are some of the best wireless earbuds available for purchase. Though these earbuds have a regular retail price of $149.99, right now Verizon is offering $40 off the Galaxy Buds+ in the color of your choice! The discount won't appear on the product page; simply add the earbuds to your cart and head to checkout to see the discounted cost. While the black pair of headphones has already sold out, this deal is still available on Cloud Blue, White, and Red colorways while supplies last.
You can read more about the Galaxy Buds+ in our review that gave them 4.5 stars out of 5. Daniel Bader said, "The Galaxy Buds Plus are among the best true wireless earbuds you can buy. Samsung has made improvements across the board, from sound quality to call quality to battery life — especially battery life — without losing any of the features people loved from the originals."
You'll get up to 11 hours of battery life per earbud, and the included case also doubles as a wireless charger so you can extract another 11 hours there before you ever have to connect the case to a USB-C or wireless charger. The Buds+ have premium sound tuned by AKG and an optimized driver for substantial bass. You'll sound great when you're on a call thanks to noise-cancelling mics, too.
With Ambient Aware2, which is only available on Android, you'll be able to control how much of the surrounding noise you let it. Sometimes, like on an airplane, you just want to block out all the noise (which these buds achieve via passive noise-isolation, rather than active noise-cancellation). Other times, like when walking down the street, it might be helpful to hear speeding cars nearby. You can easily switch to ambient mode, too, when you think someone is calling out to you or you suddenly need to hear what's going on.
One nifty feature the Galaxy Buds+ have over the previous-gen is Spotify integration. This means that you can assign a specific playlist to a tap gesture directly on your earbuds. It's a nice feature to have, especially if you're a heavy Spotify user. Just know that this feature also only works on Android. The earbuds themselves work with both iOS and Android devices, though some features, such as the Spotify integration, are platform-specific. You can connect via Bluetooth to pretty much anything. On iOS, you'll get access to voice commands through Siri rather than Google Assistant on Android.
