Earlier this year Samsung announced their next line of Galaxy Buds improving upon the wireless devices but keeping them cheap.

The new Galaxy Buds ‘Plus’ edition come with advanced speaker and microphone technology in their compact, wireless earbud form. With a bunch of impressive features for just $149.99 a pair it’s been hotly tipped to take Apple Airpod’s position at the top of the thriving TWS market.

Samsung’s Galaxy Buds+ launched earlier this month on the 14th, available from Samsung’s website. As they build up for a launch into major retail outlets next month, The Verge have gotten hands on with the wireless earbuds to tell you exactly how they stand up in this hot new market.
