By Michael Grothaus •  Updated: 12/04/19 •  4 min read

Samsung is renowned in the Android world for its flagship Galaxy phones. But, like most major phone makers, Samsung isn’t content to only be a smartphone maker anymore. The company has jumped into the wireless earbud market, which Apple currently leads in with its hot AirPods line.

Samsung’s wireless earbuds are called Galaxy Buds. Of course, the buds follow in the footsteps of Apple’s own wireless earbuds, the AirPods. But since the Galaxy Buds have come out, Apple has introduced the all-new AirPods Pro. So, which is better? Let’s take a look.

Verdict?

Honestly, it’s not even a contest. The AirPods Pro is the way to go if you want the best sound quality. They also have a better design and, while both products are water-resistant, AirPods Pro has a higher IPX4 rating.

That being said, the AirPods Pro is almost twice as expensive as the Galaxy Buds, which makes the Galaxy Buds a good option if you want to save some cash. And of course the Buds come in more color options–also something people may find attractive.
