If you are a long term user of the Samsung Galaxy Buds Plus, you must know by now that the case is prone to scratches and scuff marks. And it is not grippy either. If you have sweaty hands, it manages to slip out easily. Trust me, it has happened to me, and it was not a pleasant experience. Thankfully, like many tech devices, there are dedicated cases for the Galaxy Buds Plus to keep them in pristine conditions.
Many companies let you get creative with your earbuds’ case. You can announce your love for superheroes and cartoon characters with these cases. Or, if you can wish to go the ‘formal’ way, you can slap a plain case. Both these types of cases will preserve the looks of the charging case and ease the impact of falls and drops at the same time.
Most of the protective cases for the Samsung Galaxy Buds Plus are inexpensive and affordable. Read on to find our picks for the best protective case for the Galaxy Buds Plus.
1. Spigen Rugged Armor
If you want a rugged look for your earbuds’ case, the Spigen Rugged Armor case is built for you. This case is designed to bear the brunt of falls and drops. It bundles a dual-layer cover where the inner layer is made of hard polycarbonate, and the outer layer consists of flexible TPU material. The outer layer provides a soft yet grippy texture, which makes it easy to hold the case. More importantly, the case provides a snug fit.
The makers have included a couple of important details. For instance, there’s a cutout for the LED light and the charging port. There’s a wide cutting near the hinge for easier access.
The case is compatible with wireless charging. It also ships with a carabiner that you can hook with keychains and belts. But given the light magnetic snap of the case, I would probably not use the latter.

2. Teyomi Soft Silicone Case
Worried about the earbuds falling out of the case? If yes, you should try out the Teyomi Soft Silicone Case. This one is unlike most conventional cases. Here, instead of lifting the lid of the case, the top must be folded down to open it. Ingenious, right? This design ensures that the actual case will not open even when it is dropped accidentally.
Oh, and it packs a sleek carabiner. The unconventional design means you can hook it in your belt loop or keychain without a worry.
The case is sleek and thin. While it won’t protect the case if it falls from a great height, it will do its duty to keep scratches at bay. With it, you can wirelessly charge your case. There’s a neat flap over the charging port to keep off dust and lint.
Note that there’s no cut for the LED indicator. It’s available in many colors, including Red, Yellow, Pink, and Blue.
3. Halleast TPU Protective Case
If you are looking to jazz up your Galaxy Buds Plus case, the Halleast TPU Protective Case is the one for you. This TPU case has a neat metal band around the case, which adds to its uniqueness. It doesn’t add bulk to the overall profile. However, it’s built to bear the brunt of falls and drops.
The makers claim that this case doesn’t collect dust and lint like most cases typically do, and some users have backed this claim. The fit is perfect, and the cuts are precise.
So far, it has managed to collect around 57% positive reviews. Users like it for its simple set-up process. One user sums their experience as, “Extra tape is provided in case you need to remove the protective case and the tape becomes unsticky. Attachment is easy and the charging port, the status light, the hinge, and the slot to open the case is not covered up by it.”
The Halleast TPU Protective Case is available in five colors — Black, Navy, Pink, Celurean, and Mint-green.
4. LiZHi Protective Silicone Case
If you’d love to accentuate the style of the Buds Plus’ case, you should check out the LiZHi Protective Silicone Case. The silicone cases are available in a multitude of colors, thus allowing you to express your style. It has a thin band of black silicon going around the case, giving it a dual-tone look.
The cases are thin and don’t add much bulk to the case. There’s a neat cut for the charging indicator. However, the back doesn’t have hinges, and the thin lips tend to sour the look of the case slightly.
Reviewers are happy with their purchase, and so far, it has gained 4.1-stars out of 5 on Amazon.
Note that the material is a magnet for lint and dust. If you happen to keep your earphones in your pocket, you might want to consider that.
5. Araree Polycarbonate Case
If you want to protect your case from scuff marks and scratches without compromising on the looks, a clear silicon case like the one by Araree is the ideal solution. It’s a hard shell that wraps beautifully around the case and keeps it in pristine conditions. The cuts are precise. The area near the LED indicator and the charging port are chiseled off to give you easy access.
At the same time, the hinges at the back make it easy to open and close the case without the cover getting in the way.
The Araree Case is compatible with both Galaxy Buds and Galaxy Buds Plus, and so far, it has managed to collect around 80% positive 5-star reviews. Reviewers love it for its precise cutouts and its snug fit.
The best part is that it doesn’t add bulk to the frame. One reviewer writes, “It fits my buds+ well and the case cover lid snaps over case lid perfectly. This cover doesn’t make your case bulky and feels good in your palm.”
6. Newseego 3D Soft Case
Want to add a bit of cuteness to your Buds Plus? If yes, the cases from Newseego fit the bill perfectly. These cases are made of silicone and are available in three different shapes — Lemon, Avacado, and Strawberry. The silicon is thick enough to protect the case from scratches and other marks.
More importantly, they are adorable. The top of the case has a small cutting and stylized to look like a fruit. I am in love with the Strawberry case and might order one soon.
Apart from the above, it ships with an adorable ring to loop it with your car keys.
The only thing, which you might want to consider before buying is that it doesn’t have any hinges at the back. There’s a thin lip over the hinges, which may eventually give out in the long run.

Keep Those Scratches Away
I just had the Galaxy Buds Plus for around 4 months now. While I have started to love the buds for their sound quality and customization options, the scuff marks and the micro scratches have given it a tad old look.
If you are in a similar situation such as mine, the best bet would be to get one of the cases mentioned above, and you are good to go.
