Galaxy Buds+ teardown offers some relief for disappointed owners

The Galaxy Buds+ is an upgrade to the company's popular and affordable earbuds and while the audio accessories are more than decent, they come up short when it comes to 2020 expectations. In particular, the buds' chances of survival in the real-world is a bit questionable but, fortunately, Samsung does make some probably unintentional compensation for that.
