Samsung Galaxy Buds3: What we know so far about Apple’s new competitors
Samsung has had the Galaxy Buds in its lineup since 2019. The approach is similar to the one Apple uses with the AirPods: wireless headphones that only advance their full functionality with the right smartphone, in this case one from Samsung. Since then, several Galaxy Buds have established themselves in our test lab as competent, relatively inexpensive earphones with room for improvement in terms of sound and ANC. So far, it hasn’t made it to the top of our headphone leaderboards:

But they convinced us with good ANC, many setting options and support for high resolution bluetooth codec. However, the last time we tested a new flagship model was in 2021, when it was Galaxy Buds2 He went to the start. An early new entry in the series would be conceivable.
Unfortunately, not much is known about Samsung’s plans for the next Galaxy Buds model. However, at this point, we want to continually collect the information we find.

Since the Galaxy Buds2 Pro is still very recent, we think that the launch of the third generation Galaxy Buds is more likely than a new Pro model.
Samsung usually presents its headphones at Galaxy Unpacked events. The following events, which you can also follow as a live stream, are scheduled for February 1st at 7 p.m. We’ll probably hear more about the company’s plans for headphones here.
How much does the Samsung Galaxy Buds3 cost?
Of course, flagship earphones from major manufacturers aren’t really cheap. However, Samsung’s Galaxy Buds are less budget-friendly than many of their competitors. The Buds2 were offered on the market at a recommended retail price of €149, but now you can find them in stores for around €100. to In-Ears reduce noise Is it relatively cheap: Apple AirPods Pro It costs you about 200 euros, for example. the AirPods 3 Just under that price — and unlike the cheaper Galaxy Buds2, they don’t offer noise cancellation.
Even the top model, the Galaxy Buds2 Pro, performs well compared to other manufacturers. the Sony WF-1000XM4 It started at 279 euros. Buds2 Pro had an RRP of €229.
For now, we can only hope Samsung follows the previous approach and tries to undercut the competition with the Galaxy Buds3 as well. As soon as we hear any rumors, leaks, or official information about the upcoming Galaxy Buds, we’ll let you know here.
