Galaxy Buds+ leaked as AirPods’ nightmare at $149

Today we're taking a peek at the latest leak of the Samsung Galaxy Buds+, a pair of wireless earphones (or earbuds, if you prefer) that challenge Apple AirPods in the spring of 2020. The Samsung offensive with their second-generation Galaxy Buds could be considered an extension of the family. The features of the Samsung Galaxy Buds+ are extremely similar to those of the original Samsung Galaxy Buds (no + mark), but they cost just a TINY bit more for a decent boost to battery power - and an extra microphone.

It's like Apple created the product to which all other products are compared - which should seem familiar if you've been watching tech news for the past decade.

Apple AirPods Pro Review – Why less noise costs more

Apple AirPods Pro Review – Why less noise costs more

If the AirPods' convenience was enough to make Apple's fully-wireless earbuds a runaway hit, adding active noise cancellation could send them stratospheric.
