In the battle of the best wireless earbuds, which is the winner: Apple AirPods Pro or Samsung Galaxy Buds Plus? 

Unfortunately, we can’t give a good answer—but only because they’re both excellent products. The decision ultimately comes down to what you’re looking for in a pair of wireless earbuds. Here’s a quick rundown to help you decide which is right for you.


It’s probably no surprise that the Galaxy Buds Plus beat the AirPods Pro when it comes to price. You’ll pay $150 for a pair of Galaxy Buds, while AirPods Pro will set you back $100 more. (In addition to iPhone repair, all TCR locations buy and sell used gear, so you may get lucky and find a deal on a pair of Galaxy Buds or AirPods next time you visit!)


Here, Galaxy Buds Plus come out on top again. AirPods Pro can be used with Android devices, but they’re best used with iOS. Galaxy Buds Plus work great with iOS and Android.


Rejoice, readers with small ear canals! Unlike the earbuds that come standard with smartphones, both the Galaxy Buds Plus and AirPods Pro have three different tip sizes. The Galaxy Buds Plus also come with three different wingtips. When it comes to comfort, everyone has their own preferences, so you may just need to borrow a pair from a friend to see how they feel before making a commitment.

Battery Life

Galaxy Buds Plus will give you 11 hours of listening time and the case holds enough charge for 22 hours of listening. AirPods Pro only give you 4.5 hours of listening time and the case holds 24 hours of charge. 


If active noise cancellation is important to you, go with AirPods Pro; Galaxy Buds don’t have it, although they are designed for noise-isolation. Galaxy Buds have better sound quality, although this, again, comes down to personal preference.
