I have the IconX too and would fervently disagree... I hated mine until they died on me. They were too big and heavy so either I had to use the larger sized inserts / supports that would become uncomfortable and start hurting my ears, or I would use the smaller more comfortable size where they would be slightly too loose so the sensors would think they came out and stop playing music. That was, right up until one of the earsbud's speaker got a little damp from sweat and died on me.

the Galaxy Earbuds+ is a worthwhile step up for the better mic, double battery life, and pass through ambiant sound...

Greedy Telus cornered the market for these when they launched with the S10, so only folks who preordered the S10 from them could get these in Canada. Hope they choke on their excess inventory.

But they had 1 feature that was incredible, which is on board storage. That means I would not need to carry my brick of a phone with me when running.

I like to be off limits and relax completely when working out. That's impossible if you carry a phone with you.

But the new gen likes phones, too much, so for them this feature was useless

Does anyone have any reason to believe the $40 amex credits would not work with this? Could bring the price down another 40 bucks if so.

And still not worth it, due to crappy microphone. Save up and buy +

Yeah, that could be a workaround but still too much hassle just to be uninterrupted. Isn't it nice to leave your phone home and be free?

Also have Iconx. The only thing is galaxy buds don't have built in storage, which sucks in my opinion.

My iconx went through the washer and the dryer once and survived, I think I got really lucky and you got unlucky.

Is 160 a good price for the plus?
