Samsung has confirmed that its headphone / headphone exchange program related to Galaxy Buds Pro purchases have increased from $ 25 to $ 65.
This is a limited time offer running from January 21 to March 1, 2021, and the deal only applies to the recently launched Galaxy Buds Pro and not the Galaxy Buds Live or Galaxy Buds +.
Samsung says you can trade in your old headphones at the time of purchase or before March 1 if you buy directly from a Samsung Experience store. Otherwise, you will have until March 15 to send your headphones to Samsung if you bought the Galaxy Buds Pro from a supplier, retailer, or online at their store. Check out Samsung’s step-by-step process for more information on the redemption process if you purchased from an operator or retailer that does not accept exchanges, or if you purchased online from Samsung.
Eligible trade-in or old earbuds can “be any make, model, manufacturer, year, configuration, and in any condition,” says Samsung.
Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro costs $ 264.99 in Canada. This offer reduces its price to $ 199 with the trade-in discount of $ 65.
While the Galaxy Buds Pro feature impressive active noise cancellation and a host of customizable settings, I found them surprisingly uncomfortable, especially compared to the Galaxy Buds + and Galaxy Buds Live.
