I am also looking for affordable one. I am more interested in Apple Airpods like Ear tip, not the rubber type, that hurts. Also bass is important.

You can't have airpod tip and get bass. To get bass you need isolation. Not rubber tip isolation. You will have to buy comply foam ear tips. Trust me when I say it makes a world of difference.

I got the galaxy buds with the free 150 credit for preordering.

They sound good for me and I'm hard at hearing things on the daily lol

Havnt tried talking with them, cause I didnt use buds or headphones for that matter to talk to people.

I just wish the note had an equalizer equal to when I had the S7 edge, I loved using the concert/hall reverb settings on some songs.

I have the gear iconX from 2018. While they are useful because they're small, long battery life, build quality, etc... they are not flawless.
The sound is OK but cannot compete with the included wired AKG headphones that come with note 10+. I believe that the galaxy buds are kind of same, maybe a little better with AKG technology but still these toys are small and i do not trust them for pleasing "audiophiles" kind of people.

I use the included AKG right now because they are just much better than the iconX. Only keep the iconX when i need to be free (in the garden or when running, or when walking in the street because of the ambiant sound feature etc).
If i ever look for good headphones i will probably check large ones, supra phones like Bose QC35 II which is probably one of the best wireless headsets i ever tested.

Ok that is what i thought.. not surprised...
These things are too small, price is kinda low as well for what it does. They should work on audio quality instead of features IMHO.

Anker sound buds. Long battery life! 12h! Extremely long range and sound is awesome! Not completely wireless but great nonetheless
