Boasts better sound thanks to two discrete drivers

from TechRadar

The Samsung Galaxy Buds Plus offer better sound quality and an extended battery life compared to last year's Samsung Galaxy Buds, but they're still missing advanced audio codec support and full-on noise cancellation.

The small design of the earbud causes practically no wear fatigue, a fact that makes them comfortable to wear for long periods of time. The sound quality is very good and so is the noise isolation, and the complaints on bass can be filed under nitpicking. The battery lasts for a long while, and when you do run out, you have a few options to make charging up easy. Plus, the voice call quality on the Buds+ has made them my default choice all through a workday and beyond. Samsung has made only a few changes over the original Galaxy Buds, essentially polishing a good product, and the result speaks itself.

Powerful audio buddy with long battery life

With the Galaxy Buds+, Samsung has a strong true-wireless headset in its product range, which impresses with good sound, many features and, above all, extremely long battery life.

With the Galaxy Buds+, Samsung has a strong true-wireless headset in its product range, which impresses with good sound, many features and, above all, extremely long battery life. Active Noise Cancelling (ANC) and an IP certification are missing from the list of features, at most. They are also very comfortable to wear, making them suitable for athletes too.

The Samsung Galaxy Buds Plus make important improvements over the original Galaxy Buds. You can now listen to recommended songs with a simple touch gesture, thanks to Spotify integration. While this feature is novel and one I greatly enjoyed, greater battery life, Qi wireless charging functionality, and improved mic quality also make these true wireless earphones a compelling buy.

Sound good but it's not the reason to buy them

from Daily Express

Samsung's Galaxy Buds+ offer seriously impressive battery life that beats all of its biggest rivals. Audio could be better and the lack of noise cancellation means they don't get top marks.

These earbuds are worth the upgrade with only a $50 price difference. If you are stuck between the regular Galaxy Buds and the Galaxy Buds Plus I recommend to go with the Plus because we have improved features, and slightly better audio and call quality, and the battery life is almost twice as good on the Galaxy Buds Plus.  However if you’re on a tight budget and are still looking for some decent wireless earbuds the regular Galaxy Buds will work fine as well.

Good but still lacks one last thing

from Android Community

In layman terms, we think its un-cool of Samsung to ditch AMC and the fact that the IPX2 water resistance, stays the same as the old earbuds. The extra bucks buy you a gym session but not a dance in the rains. We are happy with the longer battery life, better sound quality and the improvement of...More

In layman terms, we think its un-cool of Samsung to ditch AMC and the fact that the IPX2 water resistance, stays the same as the old earbuds. The extra bucks buy you a gym session but not a dance in the rains. We are happy with the longer battery life, better sound quality and the improvement of in-call audio. Overall, we had a very satisfying experience while using the earbuds.

The Samsung Galaxy Buds+ aren't the best-sounding or most feature-heavy true wireless earbuds on the market, but they're not as pricey as many of our favorites, either. Despite some tinny treble and a lack of noise canceling, you're getting nearly everything else that makes for a top-rated pair of true wireless earbuds here, from all-day battery life and comfort to durable design and a highly adjustable feature set.

When the previous generation priced at $129 with the technology offered at the time, the Galaxy Buds were mint.  Now with a retail price increase of about 15% and competitors on the market, the Samsung needs to be scrutinized a bit more before making a purchase decision.  That battery life is amazing, the fit is good, the connection is great, and those alone might seal the deal.

Very long battery life, good sound quality

The most important upgrade is the boost in battery life to 11 hours per charge, placing these among the earbuds with best battery life you can buy today. The sound quality has been improved, though the difference isn't dramatic compared to what last year's Buds already delivered. The touch controls and the phone call experience could be better, but overall, the Samsung Galaxy Buds+ would be a great choice if $150 is all you have to spend on a pair of true wireless earphones.
