Sure, "Team Apple" folks go wild for AirPods. And they're pretty great. But if you have a Samsung Galaxy (or any Android phone for that matter), you can get your very own wireless earbuds that work just as well — or even better.
Right now, Amazon has the Samsung Galaxy Buds Live on sale for $80, a cool $50 off, during Prime Day. You'll save over 50% on these popular buds. How popular? Let's put it this way: They've earned a flawless rating from more than 13,000 reviewers.
If you happen to be caught with your buds running low on juice just before your daily run, you can get an hour of playback with a quick five-minute charge.
Loud and clear
At the risk of stating the obvious, earbud shoppers are looking for excellent audio, first and foremost. These Samsung Galaxy Buds Live offer crisp sound, punchy bass and noise cancellation for up to 29 hours per charge. That's more than a full day of use!
Phone calls will sound crystal clear thanks to three microphones (two outer and one inner) that reduce ambient background noise even if you’re in a busy location. "...The sound quality when listening to music paired with the ambient sound mode options is excellent," raved one five-star reviewer.
The Samsung Galaxy Buds Live are water- and sweat-resistant, so no worries about sun showers or schvitzing during your workout. And with their customizable ear tips, you’re sure to get a fantastic fit. "I have used them for running and workouts, and they never come loose or feel like they will fall out," shared another happy customer.
Skip the AirPods
If you’re looking for a great alternative to Apple AirPods, the Samsung Galaxy Buds Live pair flawlessly with Samsung Galaxy and Android smartphones at a fraction of the price. Just open up the charging case and they’ll instantly sync up via the Samsung Wearable app.
"Best ear connections I've ever had!... Your grandma could even figure out syncing to her phone. Easy," shared a satisfied Amazon shopper.
Bonus: The charging case doubles as a wireless charging pad for your phone too. It even works the other way with your phone (for Samsung Galaxy S10 or higher), giving the Samsung buds additional juice — something you can’t do with Apple AirPods.
"These earbuds are incredible," exclaimed a savvy user. "...I like that you can use the case to do a wireless charge from my phone as well. Totally worth the price."
"These are super better than all AirPods; they have a lot of bass and super loud sound, zero percent distortion, awesome quality...," wrote yet another big fan.
Our advice? Snap up these wireless earbuds for 80 bucks during Prime Day while you still can!
