Samsung’s new Galaxy Buds+ is not just affordable but comes with long-lasting battery life as well

by Grace Sundram

Building on the exceptional wireless sound experience offered by the Galaxy Buds, Samsung’s new Galaxy Buds+ are designed to provide the most convenient and high-quality listening experience yet. Featuring advanced speaker and microphone technology, all-day battery and new customizable sound, navigation and fitting options, Galaxy Buds+ allow users to enjoy studio-quality audio on their terms.

Design 4/5


What we extremely like about the Galaxy Buds+ is that it has such a low-profile design without any of the long stems you can find on other earbuds. Similar to the previous Galaxy Buds design, the latest Buds+ comes in the colour of red, white, black and blue with a pearlescent casing and adjustable silicone ear tips.

Features 4/5


For those who rely on their wireless headphones for phone calls and video conferencing, Galaxy Buds+ features two separate speaker drivers. In a way, users may find two microphones very useful and assume the to voice quality to be top-notch. However, that wasn’t the case with the latest Galaxy Buds+. We honestly expected it to have a much better microphone quality opposed to its predecessors however there wasn’t much difference as the voice of the user remains muffled instead of crisp and sharp like many latest buds out there.

All-new customizable touch capabilities on Galaxy Buds+ allow users to stay in control even without their smartphone in-hand. A single tap can play or pause music; a double-tap can skip to the next track or answer a phone call, and the touch & hold command can be customized to whatever other action users need the most.

For Spotify listeners, with Galaxy Buds+, you can continue listening to your favourite music instantly with a single press. Through a simple ‘Tap & Hold’ gesture, Spotify plays recommended music, curating based on your preferences.

Performance 4/5


Galaxy Buds+ make it easy for users to enjoy their wireless headphone experience across devices with just one simple set-up. Once paired with a Galaxy smartphone, Galaxy Buds+ are automatically available on all other devices tethered to the same Samsung account. With improved Ambient Sound, users can tune out the outside world when they want to or amplify background noise when they need to stay alert by selecting from a range of new settings including low, medium, high or extra high.

There’s nothing more disappointing than when wireless headphones run out of battery mid-podcast and there’s not an outlet in sight. Thanks to a powerful 85mAh battery, Galaxy Buds+ are the perfect companion for those who like to listen when on the go.

Galaxy Buds+ offer eleven hours of music playback, and you can double that to 22 hours just by placing them in the 270mAh wireless charging case – perfect for on-the-go listening. When users in a hurry need to recharge, quick charging capabilities can generate 60 minutes of playback in just three minutes by using wired, wireless, or device-to-device charging with Wireless Powershare.

Value 4/5


Compared to other earbuds, the Galaxy Buds+ is sold at RM599 and is quite reasonable in terms of price. Interested users can purchase it any Samsung stores or via through their website.



Redefining how we experience sound, Galaxy Buds+ provide a simpler, more seamless way to listen. Now, the new earbuds are also iOS compatible so you can enjoy the latest features across more devices. Although it is pretty good for its price, the lacking part of the Galaxy Buds+ is the missing feature of active noise cancellation.
