Galaxy Buds Pro (small)
These days, many wireless earbuds are reliable enough that they can easily replace a bulky pair of over-ear headphones. You can find several pairs in the $200 price range with great sound quality, noise cancellation, and good battery life.
Top models, like the Sony WF-1000XM3 and Bose QuietComfort Earbuds, are now joined by Samsung’s new Galaxy Buds Pro. They’re a fantastic option as primary headphones to reduce ambient noise while delivering impressive audio quality, offering an excellent showcase of what wireless earbuds can do in this price range.
That said, the Galaxy Buds Pro are primarily geared toward Android users and will work best when paired with a Samsung phone. They lose a lot of functionality when used with iOS devices, so we don’t recommend them for iPhone owners.

Design and comfort
Samsung’s Galaxy Buds Pro have a small footprint in your ear. They don’t bulge out much, and they don’t have a stem like Apple’s AirPods. There’s no branding, nor is there anything especially remarkable about their design, making them refreshingly discreet.
The Galaxy Buds Pro take on an in-ear design that makes them feel like a lightweight pair of earplugs, resulting in a secure fit, even during vigorous activity. You get three included sizes for the rubber ear tips, so fit and comfort shouldn’t be an issue. If you don’t like the in-ear design, Bose’s QuietComfort Earbuds could be a better alternative since they have ear tips that sit in your ear and remain fairly secure.
