Samsung Galaxy Buds vs Apple AirPods

17 March 2019
Hear ye, hear ye

Sort by:

Samsung, on the other hand, tries to do a lot of what Apple is doing but none of it feels as well executed, and other features like the touchpad are just bad. The sound is also mediocre, LIE even apple fans know the apple airpods is expensive and the sound is not the best . you talked about the Samsung Galaxy buds that just drop , when you had 2/years with apple airpods . yes you did mention Samsung x icon , but never mention that these buds can download music on its on . No smartphone required built in memory . something that Samsung x icon do . can the apple airpods download music without a apple smartphone please tell me am waiting. were not talking about comfort, or logo. can the apple airpods download music on its own no phone needed

the Galaxy Buds sit rather loosely within the case and turning them upside down and shaking the case lightly causes them to fall out. Just make sure you don't do this outside. LIE . when you open the case is to use the Galaxy buds so you need your buds loose to take out however when case is closed shut Galaxy buds never fall out and changing in the case . apple just did this today

The Galaxy Buds case lid is a two-handed affair and while it snaps shut satisfyingly TRUE the lid moves in a rather janky manner, as if the joints aren't sufficiently lubricated. LIE .

I could have sworn the first iconX version came out before the Airpods... maybe not.

The other poster was comparing wired headphones to wireless ones. The article event states "...both are fairly mediocre sounding pair of earbuds..." I guess in your eyes and the other poster's, that's a resounding recommendation.

"....somehow the original is still the best truly wireless pair of earbuds out there."

It is pretty hard to NOT interpret that as a recommendation to get these over anything else "truly wireless" on the market. Though it does not say that it is better than real headphones with wires.

But the whole point of removing the 3.5mm jack is to persuade people to waste money on buying this junk over real headphones.

How did this go so far over your head to misinterpret it as a recommendation to get these over anything else on the market?

First off, wireless headphones are bad for you, Google search the petition of 250 scientists in a letter stating that warning. But if you must buy wireless headphones, and don't care about that warning, go on YouTube and find Flossy Carter's reviews of headphones. Spoiler alert, Bang & Olufsen version 2 wins. Airpods and Samsung are at the bottom of the list.

Walter C. Dornez, 18 Mar 2019Yeah, they manage to look even more stupid and doucheyHow? :P

Honestly i'd rather be looked at as someone who owns a not so beautifully designed apple airpods that can be instantly identified from miles away than someone who from 5m away looks like they wear old people's hearing aids or a random chinese no name wireless earphones.

They are extremely popular in the UK right now. You see them everywhere.

Anonymous, 18 Mar 2019At least the AirPods don’t look like hearing aid for old people. Yeah, they manage to look even more stupid and douchey

I prefer wired audio myself, but to be frank this is one of the most biased reviews I've seen on here in a while.

Never ever Apple Airpods will not have better bass than Samsung Buds for the simple fact that Airpods are NOT IN-EAR. Their sound sealing is zero, the air is running out. Aitpods can't compete with the bass of 10 euro in ear headphones.

Are you seriously recommending the WORST headphones soundwise (and headphones are made FOR sound dammit) just because they "look cool"? Wtf happened to GSMArena? From a tech site it shifted to a fashion site?

My Sennheiser wired (PC) headphones which have AMAZING sound cost 157€. Cheaper than those wireless "headphones" that "look cool" but have the worst sound one can listen to. It's disgusting calling these goos

Like others has already pointed out. The ecosystem comparison is so massively flawed it's shocking. Why do the test in a non-Samung Android for the Samsung ones while you test the iPods on the iPhone?
Regarding your insistence that the bass response on the Galaxy Buds is bad, I would recommend anyone to read ANY other review. The tester here is either incompetent or doing wilfully biased review for either page clicks or cash in the pocket.

This must be the strangest comparisons. I doubt whether anyone else who has tried both of these came to such strange conclusions. One of the few times ai must disagree with the findings. Completely.
