My wife is after some wireless earbuds and has spotted these. Thought process seems to be she has a Galaxy phone and these are Galaxy buds, what better combo.
I prefer to see whether what i'm looking at is overpriced and if there's anything better. So since she's in the £100 and under market I was wondering if there's anything better.
Hop on 'best wireless earbuds under £100' lists and the Samsung buds don't get a mention. What does however are brands i've never heard of in my life. When you click through their links, user reviews on the Amazon site you're taken to are like 3/5 which don't sound so great to me.
So i then check reviews on the Galaxy Buds+ themselves and users seem to love them. 4/5. 4.5/5.
I saw a WhatHifi review on the Galaxy Buds+ and well it lost me. It's obviously for audiophiles with its use of jargon terminology. It's like listening to wine wafflers and coffee addicts, where when you come to taste whatever they've reviewed you can only assume they had taken some substance beforehand because you're tasting absolutely none of what they said.
So in plain English, are the Samsung buds+ a decent set of earbuds? Is the sound quality good? Is the bass good without being overkill? There's not a tinny sound? Do they FEEL like good quality? I ask this as i bought an expensive set of buds and also a dirt cheap set off alliexpress. The cheap set certainly felt cheap. They were very very lightweight, the case was very very lightweight and felt like bargain basement plastic. They just didn't feel good in the ear whereas the dearer set were very comfortable. There's a reason she's not getting that brand which is another story and this post is long enough.
And on another note, is there a massively better set of wireless earbuds for £100 & under? If so then in what way are they better?
