Best Affordable Earbuds: Samsung Galaxy Buds+
In lieu of the Galaxy Buds Pro or Buds Live, Samsung still sells the Galaxy Buds+ and with good reason. They’ve become an affordable alternative within the same ecosystem, and still receive updates that can improve their performance.
They may also retain the role of being the most comfortable of the lot. Samsung had done well to maintain the form factor of the original Galaxy Buds and only improved upon them in several key ways to make them viable even up to now. They lack ANC support, but passive noise isolation is great, with lightweight fit that doesn’t feel cumbersome at all. Audio quality stands up well, with call quality that represented a dramatic improvement from their predecessors. The Galaxy Wearable app still supports all the available features, including the EQ presets and Ambient mode.
