Been monitoring this for a while and also got the alert. I'm a bit hesitant on pulling the trigger as I think I may prefer the Galaxy Buds+ due to the size of the actual earbuds.

Same here. If I had gotten this price a month or two ago I probably would have gotten it. Galaxy Buds+ is too tempting now, given its size and price. Also can have two devices connected simultaneously. That's pretty handy for me.

Jabra 75t it is then.
I have it and I find it so mediocre. Audio quality is the strong suit but connetivity is less reliable (random cut outs when outside or when using both earbuds) than my $50 Soundpeats that I got off Amazon, range is worse somehow too, and if you want to use only one earbud you can only use the right side. I feel like I'm putting up with the issues just for the better sound quality and because I only paid $150 all-in for them.

How did you get them for 150? Curious to know.

Damn. kind of tempting. They have great sound but the usability is only so-so. Probably gonna pass and try the galaxy buds plus first.

Funny, I'm in Japan now on vacation, and they are cheaper in Canada. About $300 CDN here.

IMO, all true wireless ear buds are still at their infancy period.

I got these for my birthday and I love them.

Sound quality is really good, noise cancelling was great (not perfect but quite solid). Battery life is better than I expected. I have the settings to prioritize audio quality over connection and I think I've experienced them dropping connection, like, once. It's quite rare.

I didn't like their tips; I swapped on some old Comply tips I had to make it better for me personally.

I bought these full price 2 weeks ago. I'm gonna ask amazon to credit me the difference awwww yeaa.

Damn these Sony are expensive when chinese knockoffs are gonna be hitting the market soon for a fraction of the price but whatever I'm happy with the sound quality and will live with my decision.

The fit could be better... so I'll need to try aftermarket tips and NC is decent not amazing. Battery life is good but questionable about long term.

I wear them 8 hours a day at work listening to podcast and charge it up during my lunch break.

As far as I know only the Sony wf1000xm3 and the airpods pro are the leaders of truly wireless with NC. What's special about the new Samsung Galaxy buds+?

The ANC on these is decent. Not amazing, could be better.
The fit, for me, wasn't great, I got some cheap foam tips Frome AliExpress that made the fit much better.
The worst worst worst thing about these things is the voice quality when making a phone call. No one can ever hear me properly when I'm in a relatively noisy environment

All that being said. The sound quality is phenomenal and you can really crank some nice bass out if you play with the eq in the app

Much better battery life, extra microphones, dedicated spotify connection, the audio quality is only slightly better than original galaxy buds, No noise cancellations.

Sony has to make them smaller before I consider buying them.

Good news, according to Jabra support the 75t will be getting support to use the left earbud independently via a firmware update in Q1 of this year. Fingers Crossed. Smiling Face With Sunglasses
