The Galaxy Buds Plus true wireless earphones released two years ago are welcomed by many consumers for their comfortable fit, good sound quality, and impressive battery life (up to 11 hours). However, with the launch of the new Galaxy Buds 2 pre-orders, which will be shipped from August 27th, Samsung has apparently stopped the Galaxy Buds Plus production line.
Although Samsung has not officially announced the retirement of Galaxy Buds Plus, the official website mall is currently off the shelf. Through text chat with two customer service representatives, it can be confirmed that this true wireless headset has been discontinued.
As a two-year-old product, Samsung recently even hit a clearance price as low as 80 US dollars. In contrast, most online retailers have a price tag of US$100. Judging from the nearly 40,000 reviews on Amazon, it is quite popular among Samsung and other Android smartphone user groups, and many people bought it together with Galaxy smartphones in the form of bundled packages.
As for the Galaxy Buds 2, its initial price is 150 US dollars. It is expected that during the holiday shopping season, Samsung will also give a discount of 20 to 30 US dollars.
