Have a look at the qcy T2's. A fraction of the price. If you're a full on audiophile then maybe they're not for you but they'll do the job for most people! Lots of threads on here about them.
I have the yellow ones. They are pretty decent. Noise isolation is good, they could be louder but apart from that they never lose connection or anything and stay in while i'm at the gym/mountainbiking without getting in the way.

These come with two sized wings that hold them in your ear. I've done multiple 10k runs with mine and they haven't fallen out yet.

Very few fully wireless ear buds are even close to audiophile quality anyway.
I have these and I think they're great. I find the sound to be excellent despite some of the negative reviews out there.

They come with a few different rubber bits. I used for gym and mountain biking and they haven't fallen out yet. I went for yellow so that i could find them if i did drop one but haven't needed to.
At the gym i run on treadmill, cycle, sit ups etc and they don't fall out. I was overly wary at the start but now don't worry about them.
I've got the black ones and I've had them replaced ones as the kept losing connection when looking right. Strange I know. The replacement set were worse are now back in the samsung shop for them to investigate. Firstly they said it was my phone but I said it's exactly the same with my s3 watch

Thankfully i haven't had an issue as i have no idea where my nearest samsung shop is
I have the white ones and never had an issue, I use them daily with the s10

Just got mine replaced at the weekend.No sound in the right ear and next to none in the left.Good alternative if I don’t want to lug around my on ear headphones
I have the white ones, rate them better than the airpods as you can vary the fit (not a one size fits all like the airpods). I have a few weird connectivity issues in crowded places but think that is a problem with my phone (pixel 3) rather than the buds as had a similar issue with my previous airpods.

I got mine on eBay for approx £80 as loads of people were selling them brand new, as they came free with the new galaxy at one point. Might be worth checking there if this is a little out of your price range.

I thought I'd best get that in there before all the brand snobs start saying how they won't compare to this brands £150 set!
They are good everyday headphones. The sound is average as I also have a pair of bose soundsport headphones to and you really do notice the sound difference. Saying that the bose are twice the price and dont have the functionality of the earbuds

They only came out in march so I doubt it.

I've seen mention of new ones but if rumours to be believed they're more higher end than these ones and will come with the price point to match

Something more substantial would have been leaked if they were releasing anytime soon.

Exactly... …Exactly... https://www.techradar.com/news/akg-n400-true-wireless-earbuds-could-be-in-the-works


No specs or features, not exactly like the note 10 coming out on the 7th, which is basically fully leaked.
Got them free with my S10+ and wouldn't pay more than £15 for them.

But then again, I am not an Audiophile.

I did too and I agree with you, but different people have different needs, for instance these are good where a discrete pair of headphones are needed.. way too over priced though

Cold you are not martian! What a logic
Lost my Galaxy Buds and bought some QCYs to replace them. Immediately felt like an idiot for ever parting with £100+ for the Galaxy Buds. They are not worth it, even at this price.
just bought these cheap replacement ear buds, very nice features and good battery life of 7hours per charge.. True Wireless Headphones, Mailiya Bluetooth 5.0 Earphones with 4000mAh Charging Box

Where do you get such earphones?

Nope! If you want to pay crazy money, then your link is fine, if not then just search for the threads I mentioned and click on one of their links.
What's their returns policy like if I end up hating these?
I'm selling my one if anyone is interested
What about answering calls? Any good?
Any good for non Samsung phones eg pixel

+1 on that... hate to say it but even though these are a blinding price and having had both the buds and the Qcy's.. there is something about being able to have 4 pairs for the price of one that can be lost for next to nothing.. as opposed to £80 odd !!

Bass and clarity on these is superb and far superior to the Qcy's and the battery on a single flat out volume till dead is about an hour 45 mins longer

Never fell out for me, always using in gym & for running
I got these free with the S10. It took me a little while to get used to them but the perseverance paid off. Really happy with the functionality, making and taking calls, voice control using Google assistant and general music control. The sound quality I find is pretty good after tweaking the EQ in the Samsung gear app, for my ears anyway. They also remain in place whether I'm out running, cycling or walking.
This is my first time commenting on a deal. I had this buds. The sound is good in general but the problem was that the sound was cutting when I used them outside of my house. The sound cuts every time I moved my head to right or left or when my phone was in my pocket. They were completely unusable in train stations or crowd places.

I dind't have a faulty device. You can check here: us.community.samsung.com/t5/…601


The problem is not fixed regardless what the status of the post says. I had to return mine even if I liked the product a lot.


Then I bought the redmi airdots. And I am happy that I did. The sound is as good as the samsung buds and the price is great.
Almost went in on these, but then saw someone review them saying they are no good if you want to use them with a watch on your left wrist because the connection in in the right ear and it cuts out a lot.

Worth thinking about if like me you want to run with no phone.

Good price though, so heat.
