The Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro are our new favorite wireless earbuds, they're also a cheaper AirPods Pro alternative. For limited time, you can save up to $50  on Samsung's best earbuds. 

Currently, you can get the Galaxy Buds Pro for just $149.99 with eligible audio device trade-in. These buds retail for $200, so that's $50 cheaper than their normal price.

At $43 off, the Galaxy Buds Live are at their lowest price yet. These bean-shaped earbuds are super comfortable thanks to their ergonomic shape and they sound amazing as well. They come with active noise cancellation and have long battery life.  

The Galaxy Buds Pro are Samsung's best wireless earbuds yet. They feature active noise-cancellation (ANC), IPX7 water-resistance, and studio sound quality.  

In our Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro review, we praised their compact, comfortable design, audio quality, and strong ANC. We also loved their pain-free paring and gave the Galaxy Buds Pro a 4.5 out of 5 star rating and the Editor's Choice award. 

During real-world testing, the Galaxy Buds Pro's ANC made conversations on the street fade away with music playing at 60% volume. We could still hear the rumble of a train ahead which is on par with today's other buds. Switching to Ambient Sound let in more of our surroundings including ongoing traffic. 

Design-wise, the Galaxy Buds Pro are a mashup of the Galaxy Buds Live and Galaxy Buds Plus. They look like a more worldly version of the original Galaxy Buds.  Weighing 0.2 ounces and measuring 0.8 x 0.8 x 0.8 inches, the Galaxy Buds Pro are on a par with the AirPods Pro earbuds (0.2 ounces, 0.8 x 0.8 x 0.7 inches) and Galaxy Buds Live (0.2 ounces,1.1 x 0.6 x 0.6 inches). They're lighter and smaller the Bose QuietComfort Earbuds (0.3 ounces, 1.5 x 1 x 1.1 inches). 

As for sound, the Galaxy Buds Pro packs an 11mm woofer and a 6.5mm tweeter. Over the Galaxy Buds Live, they have a noticeably more defined sound profile. Listening to  Jasmine Sullivan and Ari Lennox's “On It”, alongside the harmonizing vocals, we could clearly hear the bass and background instruments. 

More than for just listening to music, the Galaxy Buds Pro are great for watching movies, taking calls, and working out. If comfort, sound, and versatility are priority to you, the Galaxy Buds Pro earbuds are a solid choice. 

Samsung's trade-in offer might not last long, so we recommend you take advantage of it while you can.
