Samsung Galaxy Buds Plus vs. Samsung Galaxy Buds

The phrase “sophomore slump” exists for good reason, but Samsung’s second-generation Galaxy Buds brings a novel feature set to the table, making it a compelling buy for any Spotify user. That said, just because the Samsung Galaxy Buds Plus is newer doesn’t make it a better choice for everyone. Let’s see how the original Galaxy Buds compares to the new kid on the block, and why last year’s Buds may be the better option for some.

Editor’s note: this versus was updated on August 11, 2021, to mention the Samsung Galaxy Buds 2 and edit the style to match SoundGuys’ current standards

Are there hardware differences?

The Samsung Galaxy Buds and Galaxy Buds Plus appear nearly the same, and both are available on Amazon.

The Galaxy Buds Plus and Galaxy Buds are indistinguishable from one another; except the new edition is available in black, white, and light blue while the original is available in black, white, yellow, and silver. The Buds Plus retains the same whimsical design as before which is both practical and fun. Everything from the plastic construction to the silicone wing and ear tips remains unchanged. Samsung includes three extra pairs of sleeves and tips with both models, so listeners are more likely to find a proper fit. This provision not only improves comfort but also optimizes audio quality by passively blocking out external noise.

Listeners should use the various ear tips to find a proper fit.

Users can remap the touch-capacitive panels on each headset, and sensitivity is the same between the old and new Galaxy Buds. Automatic ear detection remains present with the new Samsung Galaxy Buds Plus: removing both earbuds automatically pauses media playback. Just as before, re-inserting the Buds Plus does not resume playback; instead, you must manually hit play on your smartphone or tap an earbud to resume music.

Both the Samsung Galaxy Buds Plus and Samsung Galaxy Buds support Wireless PowerShare, which lets you charge the USB-C case wirelessly atop a compatible Samsung Galaxy smartphone. You can also use a Qi wireless charging mat to charge the case, affording you plenty of options for topping up the pill-shaped case.

The Samsung Galaxy Buds Plus looks nearly identical to the original but house a new dual-driver system for clear audio reproduction.

The only physical design amendments made to the Plus model are seen in the case: it now shines with a glossy, rather than matte, finish. Then there’s the silicone “L R” piece that does nothing more than indicate where to place the earbuds. I initially thought this was a functional button, but alas, it’s just an aesthetic change. Original Galaxy Buds owners who upgrade to the Samsung Galaxy Buds Plus can use either case to charge either pair of earbuds. In other words, you can plop the older earbuds into the Plus case to charge them, and vice versa.

Neither appearance nor build quality should be a critical factor when deciding between the Samsung Galaxy Buds and Galaxy Buds Plus model, and this one is too close to call.

What extra features come with the Galaxy Buds Plus?

You can charge the case via Wireless PowerShare or with a Qi-certified power mat.

One of the major selling points of the Plus headset is exclusive Spotify integration, which is now supported by the Samsung Galaxy Buds with the April 27, 2020, software update (version R170XXU0ATD2); Samsung is swaggering around dropping Spotify’s name like crazy, and for good reason: Spotify is among the most popular music streaming services worldwide.

Seeing these two audio powerhouses team-up is a sight to behold, and one-touch access to Spotify is something I dearly miss upon returning to standard wireless headphones. By pressing and holding one of the earbuds (chosen in the Galaxy Wearable app), a recommended set of songs is queued up. This is randomly generated according to your preferences and ranges from one of Spotify’s Daily Mix playlists, an artist or song radio, genre playlist, and more. Unfortunately, this perk is only afforded to Android OS devices, so iPhone users still need to enter the Spotify app for music playback.

There are some similarities here, too, though as both pairs of earbuds earned an IPX2 rating, making them sweat-resistant. General consumers who want the option to workout with their daily earbuds will benefit from either headset’s durability. No matter which earbuds you go with, you have the option to enable an ambient aware mode. This is great for outdoor runners and general consumers: it keeps you aware of your surroundings, thereby enabling you to stay safe or engage in conversation with the train ticketer.

Samsung added a glossy finish to the Galaxy Buds Plus, whereas the original Galaxy Buds has a matte finish.

The Galaxy Buds Plus ambient sound mode is limited to three modes: high, medium, and low. Yet, the older Galaxy Buds supports a “voice focus” mode, which further amplifies surrounding vocal frequencies through the earphones. This is as of software version R175XXU0ATA6 for the Buds Plus; perhaps we’ll see an experimental addition in the “Labs” section of Samsung’s app, or even as a full-fledged feature with future updates.

Both headsets support software updates through the Samsung Galaxy Wearable app.

To my dismay, neither the Samsung Galaxy Buds Plus nor the Galaxy Buds support standard Bluetooth multipoint connectivity. Although the Galaxy Buds Plus promised this feature across Bluetooth 5.0 devices, the company has since removed any mention of multipoint support from the official website. When I asked a Samsung representative whether support would make its way to the Galaxy Buds Plus, she shared, “Multipoint connectivity is not available on the Galaxy Buds+ at this point.”

The Samsung Galaxy Buds Plus has better battery life than the Galaxy Buds

The original Galaxy Buds fits into and charges via the Buds Plus case.

This is the easiest metric to measure. We subjected each pair of earbuds to our standard battery test, a constant 75dB(SPL) output, and noted the results. The original Galaxy Buds lasts 6.53 hours while the Buds Plus lasts 11.73 hours under identical conditions. This is a remarkable leap in playtime, and each charging case provides an extra charge cycle, doubling total on-the-go playtime. This means you get under 24 hours of listening with the Samsung Galaxy Buds Plus, and just over 12 hours with the Galaxy Buds.

Both earbuds support fast charging: the Galaxy Buds supplies 1.7 hours of playtime from 15 minutes in the case, and the Buds Plus supplies one hour of listening after just three minutes in the case. Again, both USB-C cases support Wireless PowerShare and are Qi-compatible.

Bluetooth codec support is identical

Neither headset supports aptX.

The same Bluetooth codecs are supported by these Bluetooth 5.0 headsets: AAC and the Scalable Samsung codec. It’s a bummer that Samsung didn’t go in for aptX support, but makes sense to push its proprietary codec. The scalable codec operates similarly to aptX Adaptive because it’s always optimizing for the best bitrate without compromising connection strength. This is, however, only compatible with certain Samsung devices operating Android 7.0 and later.

Despite the same specs on paper, the Galaxy Buds Plus performs better with fewer connection stutters when taken outdoors, something the original Galaxy Buds still struggles with. When I worked on the Apple AirPods vs. Samsung Galaxy Buds article, there were a handful of times when I had to unpair and re-pair the Buds to my Galaxy S10e smartphone.

Winner: Samsung Galaxy Buds Plus

Which headset has the better microphone system?

Microphone quality is straightforward: Samsung improved the mic array in its latest true wireless earbuds, and it shows. The Samsung Galaxy Buds Plus three-microphone array sounds markedly better than the original Galaxy Buds’ system. The new model uses two external mics to focus on your voice while simultaneously reducing ambient noise, which is similar to how the AirPods Pro operate. The more neutral frequency response of the Buds Plus microphones means you’re less likely to sound “distant” or “unnatural.” Be sure to listen to our demos below to determine for yourself which is best.

Does the Galaxy Buds Plus sound better than the Samsung Galaxy Buds?

It’s easy to forget that we’re looking at earbuds; after all, Samsung packs plenty of technology into both pairs of Galaxy Buds. When push comes to shove, though, we can’t forget the importance of sound quality. Both headsets are tuned by Samsung subsidiary AKG but the audio reproduction varies between the two models. You can choose between a few EQ presets including normal, soft, dynamic, clear, and treble boost with the Galaxy Buds. The Samsung Galaxy Buds Plus offers a bass boosts option, too, via the Samsung Wearable app.

Bass notes are amplified and will sound louder than any other notes during music playback.
AKG tuned the Galaxy Buds Plus drivers, resulting in clear audio with just a touch of amplification in the low-end.

The headsets have different hardware inside: the Samsung Galaxy Buds has a single, one-way dynamic driver while the Galaxy Buds Plus houses a two-way dynamic driver and tweeter system. Even still, the headsets sport similar frequency responses, but the Galaxy Buds amplifies bass notes more than the Buds Plus. Auditory detail is easier to perceive from the Samsung Galaxy Buds Plus because of the louder treble reproduction compared to the Galaxy Buds. No matter, both earphones have consumer-friendly sound signatures that will please most listeners.

Passive isolation is fine and expected from standard in-ears.
Passive isolation performance is unchanged from the Samsung Galaxy Buds.

Because sound quality will come down to your personal preference, we’re calling this a draw again. Both the Galaxy Buds and Galaxy Buds Plus offer three sets of ear and wing tips, allowing users to find optimal audio isolation and reproduction.

The Samsung Galaxy Buds Plus is the better earbuds, but the Galaxy Buds is still a good deal

In case you haven’t been keeping a tally at home, the Galaxy Buds Plus beat the Galaxy Buds, as it should: it is billed as an upgrade from the original headset and retails for $20 more than the Galaxy Buds did upon its debut. Battery life is bar none, and microphone quality is improved over the first-gen model.

All prices listed in USD unless otherwise specified. Prices may change over time, and vary by region. Unfortunately, we cannot list Amazon prices on the site, as they vary greatly by currency.

However, you can get the Samsung Galaxy Buds for around $100 or less, making it an absolute steal. Pricing also happens to be the main reason as to why you should grab it over the Galaxy Buds Plus. You get 90% of what the Galaxy Buds Plus offers for a fraction of the cost.

All prices listed in USD unless otherwise specified. Prices may change over time, and vary by region. Unfortunately, we cannot list Amazon prices on the site, as they vary greatly by currency.

If you want noise cancelling, get the Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro

The new Galaxy Buds Pro have active noise cancelling.

The Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro drops the bean-shaped earbud design, in favor of something a bit more traditional. The Galaxy Buds Pro is the most durable earphones in the Galaxy Buds series to date, with an IPX7 rating. This waterproofing along with its stabilizing protrusions makes this headset excellent for working out. Its active noise cancelling is very good and rivals that of competitors like the Sony WF-1000XM3, Apple AirPods Pro, and Bose QuietComfort Earbuds. The Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro is without a doubt better ANC earbuds than the Galaxy Buds Live. If you’re willing to spend a little bit more for better quality buds, we’d recommend the Galaxy Buds Pro over both the Galaxy Buds and Galaxy Buds Plus.

Samsung is offering a number of deals on Amazon right now which gives you the chance to score some deep discounts across many of the company’s most popular gadgets. Among the best Samsung deals: $50 off its Galaxy Watch Active smartwatch and it’s popular fast wireless charging stand for just $29. This sale also brings the best-selling Galaxy Buds Plus down to their lowest price ever.

Regularly $149+, the new discount brings Samsung’s true wireless earbudsdown to just $99 – a $50 discount. Multiple colors are available as part of the deal.

The totally wireless earbuds were released last year, and have an impressive array of features. They support Bluetooth 5.0, a recent version of the wireless standard that’s extremely power efficient, which is one of the reasons the Galaxy Buds Plus get 11 hours of music playback per charge.

You can get an additional 11 hours by popping the buds into their charging case, which supports both fast and wireless charging. Samsung says keeping the earbuds in their case for three minutes will get you one hour of music playback. It’s worth noting that Apple’s AirPods get five hours of music playback per charge, and don’t come with a wireless charging case by default.

On the audio side, Samsung packed each of the Galaxy Buds Plus with a tweeter to handle treble and a woofer to handle midrange and bass. The result of using both a tweeter and woofer is music that sounds more detailed and accurate.

The Galaxy Buds Plus don’t support active noise cancellation, but the gummy-tipped earbuds will create enough of a seal around your ears to block some outside noise. To ensure a proper fit, the earbuds come with eartips and fit-wings in three sizes: small, medium, and large. Samsung outfitted the Galaxy Buds Plus with three microphones to accurately capture your voice and filter other sounds when you’re on a call.

Like most totally wireless earbuds the Samsung Galaxy Buds are touch sensitive: Tap them once to play or pause your music; tap them twice to go to the next song; tap them three times to go to the previous sound. You can set a custom function to happen if you press and hold your finger on either earbud. The wireless earbuds pair easily with your smartwatch and both Android and iOS devices.

Samsung has only discounted the Galaxy Buds Plus only once before, so you shouldn’t expect to see them on sale again soon. Shop the $99 wireless earbuds here and see all of the current Samsung deals and discounts at Amazon.com.

If you're looking for the cheapest Samsung Galaxy Buds deals, then you've come to the right place. We've rounded up the best sales available online, which include the all-new Samsung Galaxy Buds Live, the Galaxy Buds, and the Samsung Galaxy Buds Plus.

Following the release of 2019's Samsung Galaxy Bud, two subsequent additions to the range are now available - the Samsung Galaxy Bud Plus and the recently released Samsung Galaxy Bud Live. All three are worthy alternatives to the likes of the Apple AirPods and Sony WF-1000XM3, and you'll find all the best prices on all three models right here.

All Samsung Galaxy Buds come with a small compact case that doubles as a charging capsule. On a full charge, the baseline buds last an impressive six hours of playtime, while the newer models can range all the way up to 11-hours on a single charge.

The Galaxy Buds are lightweight, compact, and come with three adjustable ear tips and wingtip sizes so you can find a size that's right for you. The water-resistant earbuds have touch controls so you can turn up the volume, skip songs, and more by tapping either 'bud.

You'll find the best Samsung Galaxy Buds deals below, comparing prices for every model that's on sale online, which include the Samsung Galaxy Buds Live, the Galaxy Buds, and the Samsung Galaxy Buds Plus. You can also look forward to upcoming discounts at the Black Friday 2021 sale.

Samsung Galaxy Buds Live prices and sales

The Galaxy Buds Live were released in September of last year with a starting price of $169.99 (£179 / AU£319). Thanks to sales like Amazon Prime Day and Black Friday, we've already seen significant price cuts on the wireless earbuds.

The Samsung Galaxy Bud Live are the first Galaxy Buds to offer active noise cancellation, something the series has been lacking so far, and pack in an impressive 11-hour battery life. They also feature a new striking kidney bean-esque aesthetic, which really sets them apart from the usual AirPods style you see on most wireless earbuds.

Samsung Galaxy Buds prices and sales

The Samsung Galaxy Buds currently retail for $129 (£139 / AU$249) which is actually cheaper than Samsung's previous Bluetooth earbuds, the Gear IconX ($149.99 / £157). The only features that the Galaxy Buds lack when compared to the Gear IconX are the ability to load your music to the earbuds, increased water-resistance, and audio coaching for exercises. The Samsung earbuds are also cheaper than Apple's Airpods ($159/£159) which makes the Galaxy Buds one of the most affordable high-end wireless earbuds on the market.

You'll find all of the prices below from several different retailers so you can find the best deal that's currently available. 

Samsung Galaxy Buds Plus prices and sales

With the launch of the Galaxy Buds Live, the Galaxy Buds Plus might not be the top dog in the range anymore, there's still plenty on offer here with these excellent wireless earphones. 

Firstly, they're the cheapest Galaxy Buds in the range to offer some form of noise-cancellation, albeit in the form of noise-reduction this time as opposed to a full on active system. While not reaching the lofty heights of the Sony WF-1000XM3 or Apple AirPods Pro, retailing at just $149.99 (£159 / AU$299) means you can pick these up for a veritable steal versus the competition. 

Here's a quick roundup of the best prices currently available at the big retailers in your territory.

REVIEW Samsung Galaxy Buds Live Indonesia - Bagusan Mana Sama Buds+?

Samsung has the Galaxy Buds+ on sale at a crazy low price on eBay

No longer listed among the very best true wireless earbuds money can buy in 2021primarily due to their somewhat advanced age, the Galaxy Buds+ come with considerably better battery life (case notwithstanding) than both the Buds Liveand Buds Pro.

Even with the Galaxy Buds 2 right around the corner, that still makes these early 2020-released bad boys an extremely smart buy for a lot of people... at a low enough price.

Available directly from Samsung at $99.99 a pair in brand-new condition in a slew of different colors after a $50 discount that looks destined to become a permanent thing, the Galaxy Buds Pluscan be purchased for as little as $59.99 in a "limited quantity" on eBay.

While you're looking at refurbished units here, the comparison between the aforementioned $59.99 and $99.99 prices is not entirely unfair for at least two big reasons. First, these ultra-affordable devices will be shipped by Samsung itself rather than some sort of a third-party seller, having been "professionally inspected, cleaned, and refurbished" by the tech giant.

That means the Android and iOS-compatible earbuds, which by the way are available in a single Aura Blue paint job, are guaranteed to work flawlessly while looking pretty much as good as new on the outside.

Last but certainly not least, eBay will hook you up with a two-year warranty if you do decide to order Samsung's "certified refurbished" Galaxy Buds+ before they go away entirely or jump back up to a $100 or so price, covering breakdowns and malfunctions just like the manufacturer normally does for all-new products.

That's the main thing setting this hot new deal apart from past refurbished promotions offered by the likes of Best Buy with significantly shorter warranties included. Before pulling the trigger, however, you may want to keep in mind that the Galaxy Buds+ do not support state-of-the-art active noise cancellation technology, which is basically true for all such products sold at this kind of price (new or refurbished) by a major US retailer.

The totally wireless earbuds were released last year, and have an impressive array of features. They support Bluetooth , a recent version of the wireless standard that’s extremely power efficient, which is one of the reasons the Galaxy Buds Plus get 11 hours of music playback per charge.

You can get an additional 11 hours by popping the buds into their charging case, which supports both fast and wireless charging. Samsung says keeping the earbuds in their case for three minutes will get you one hour of music playback. It’s worth noting that Apple’s AirPods get five hours of music playback per charge, and don’t come with a wireless charging case by default.

On the audio side, Samsung packed each of the Galaxy Buds Plus with a tweeter to handle treble and a woofer to handle midrange and bass. The result of using both a tweeter and woofer is music that sounds more detailed and accurate.

The Galaxy Buds Plus don’t support active noise cancellation, but the gummy-tipped earbuds will create enough of a seal around your ears to block some outside noise. To ensure a proper fit, the earbuds come with eartips and fit-wings in three sizes: small, medium, and large. Samsung outfitted the Galaxy Buds Plus with three microphones to accurately capture your voice and filter other sounds when you’re on a call.

Like most totally wireless earbuds the Samsung Galaxy Buds are touch sensitive: Tap them once to play or pause your music; tap them twice to go to the next song; tap them three times to go to the previous sound. You can set a custom function to happen if you press and hold your finger on either earbud. The wireless earbuds pair easily with your smartwatch and both Android and iOS devices.

Samsung has only discounted the Galaxy Buds Plus only once before, so you shouldn’t expect to see them on sale again soon. Shop the $99 wireless earbuds here and see all of the current Samsung deals and discounts at Amazon.com.
