The Galaxy Buds are Samsung’s answer to the Apple AirPods

Buddy up

Samsung has finally lifted the lid on the Galaxy Buds, a new pair of (rather gorgeous) truly wireless headphones it’ll be hoping can steal some of the limelight from Apple’s AirPods. Announced alongside the new Galaxy S10 range, the Buds are 30% smaller than Samsung’s Gear IconX wireless earphones, and sport an adaptive microphone and sound tech from audio engineering specialist AKG. They’ll be available in white, black, and startlingly bright yellow, and will cost £139 when they launch in March. How does that sound?

I’m a freelance games and technology journalist currently mashing my keyboard in the name of fine institutions like Stuff, where you'll usually find me waxing lyrical about the latest mobile morsels. I've also been known to cook up some decidedly delicious reviews from time to time, and was once dubbed 'the games industry's answer to Nigella Lawson' by someone probably somewhere.
