Samsung Galaxy Buds Plus ramping up competition with AirPods

Samsung has made some awesome improvements to its wireless earbuds with the release of the Galaxy Buds Plus.

While they look just like their predecessors, the performance of the Plus model is greatly improved.

The battery life has been stretched from 6 hours to 11 hours of continuous use.

They also include new audio drivers for improved audio quality, along with microphones built into each bud for better noise cancellation during phone calls.

The new Plus earbuds are only $20 more than the standard Galaxy Buds. And if you preorder a Galaxy S20 Plus or Ultra, you’ll get a $150 purchase credit toward the earbuds, effectively making them free.
