Yet another headphone thread

I just got the new Samsung Galaxy buds and they are awesome. I had a "cheapy" $40 pair from Amazon before that would cut out when working out or running. The Samsungs just lasted an outside 8k, weaving in and out of snow bank, run without cutting out a single time. I also used them in my home gym with no cutouts. My only concern is they are just sweat resistant but I will need sweat proof come summer.

I really have a hard time spending that much for headphones...so I bought these and so far they are ok. They do seem to cut out and need to be reset but at 1/3 the cost is is so hard to justify the better ones.

Still I am really tempted. Do the Galaxy buds ever go on sale?

I think the glaxy buds just came out like days ago didn't they? Or is it just that they're giving them away with the new S10's?

I had to order an S10 for work. It comes with a free pair of Galaxy Buds that work doesn't care about. So I guess I'm going to see how those work with my Pixel 3? I do wish they were black instead of white, but I can't argue with the price. Wonder if they'll work better than my current Anker buds. Those are fine except when I'm at the office, where there's a ton of bluetooth devices around, and it creates interference.

I’ve got a pair of the Massdrop x Sennheiser HD 6XX like new in original box. These sold for 199 + shipping, I just don’t need another pair of headphones, so letting them go for $150 shipped in the US.

Sold!

Correct, galaxy buds just came out and they came free with my phone but can be purchased stand alone.

Those ones, that you have, look like a rebrand of the cheapy ones I also have (There appear to be many rebrands on Amazon that all game the review system). They were OK for walking around but cut out often when biking or running. Also, the sound is in the budget headphone category.

You are right, they are in the budget category but after my initial gadget lust of the galaxy buds wore off I realized that 1 - I bought the ones I have with a $20 coupon so they were only $27, 2 - I wear them while riding the bus or walking the dog so I really can live with what I have.
