Headphone companies have now had nearly two-and-a-half years to try to match the near-perfect simplicity of Apple’s AirPods.
No one has managed to pull it off yet. But, with its new Galaxy Buds, Samsung has come very, very close.
On paper, it’s easy to see why: Battery life for the Galaxy Buds tops out at six hours — one hour more than AirPods. And the case, though a bit bulkier than the tooth floss-sized AirPods case, is still slim enough to fit in pretty much any pocket (and is mercifully smaller than the Gear IconX buds).
