Memorial Day sales are coming and that means good deals on tech, and the latest one we've spotted comes in the form of these slick Samsung earbuds.  

Right now, Amazon is offering the Samsung Galaxy Buds Plus on sale for $99. That's a whole 33% off its original price of $149, making it one of the best headphone deals we've seen so far.

If you're on the lookout for a pair of wireless earbuds, look no further. Amazon has knocked 33% off the price of these Samsung Galaxy Buds. For $99 only, you're getting an excellent set of buds with lengthy battery life and strong audio performance. 

Samsung unveiled the Samsung Galaxy Buds Plus just last year, so this particular model is one of the most recent ones released. However, it's worth noting that although these flagship earbuds rival Apple's AirPods, don't expect their overall performance to match that of the latest AirPods Pro or the first-in-class Bose QuietComfort Earbuds

In our Galaxy Buds Plus review, we were impressed with the ambient sound feature, solid microphone, comfortable fit, and handy companion app, although the touch controls have room for improvement. And the lack of ANC (active noise cancellation) may be a deal-breaker for some people. But overall, the Galaxy Buds Plus deliver impressive wireless audio quality.

Another feature that makes the Galaxy Buds Plus stand out is undoubtedly its 11-hour battery life (which can be increased to up to 22 hours, thanks to its wireless charging case). In fact, we went as far as to declare that it's "the best battery life you can get from a pair of wireless earbuds."

Hurry though, as this is a one-day sale only and stocks are limited. And in case you wanted to scout out the alternatives then make sure to read our roundup of the best wireless earbuds available.
