I don't think you've ever had bluetooth earbuds if you complain about battery life. No good ones die on you. You're not wearing earbuds for 12+ hours. The case is also a speedcharger so you can use them again at full charge in a matter of minutes. I was sceptical about this at first too but using them I don't think I've ever seen mine drop below 10%.

it's insane to me you have to charge earphones every 10-12 hours. current-gen iPhones and Macs have better charge cycles than that and they're fucking computers. a MacBook with an 8-core processor - including its own in-built audio chip and output - lasts longer than a pair of bluetooth earbuds. i mean, how is that good? i can go and work from a cafe for a day without taking my power adapter, but i'll need to remember my black presentation tray charge-carry case for my fucking earphones?
'it lasts up to 12 hours!' right, so, on a given work-day at the office, when i am listening to music for 5 or so hours, plus any given commute on either side, i already have to think about remembering to charge my earphones ready for the next day? great, another device with an almost daily risk of crapping out on me.
'having no cable is so convenient! you just have to remember to carry a case and charging station with you wherever you go'.
fucking lmao. i'm used to taking my earphones out with me whenever i go anywhere in the city. they can be coiled and slipped into my coat or jacket pocket. why the fuck am i going to take some egg-head charging station with me wherever i go, to ensure that my earphones actually have enough charge to work, or that i don't lose one of the damn things like a piece of spare change? it's literally like someone who wears glasses having to carry a glasses case or cleaning kit with them whenever they leave the house. who does that?!?
for anyone who actually wants to use them intensively, listen a lot, get the most out of it, etc, bluetooth earphones are a horrible solution.
As for the case, you always put them in there anyway so it rarely if ever happens that you take them out but forget the case.
Not having a wire is always more convenient than having a wire. I'll concede that sound quality at the moment is probably even better with wired buds, but I don't think that's going to be the case forever either. Nonetheless they're still very good. I also have to stress that I train a lot and wired buds fucking suck there. That's also usually the reason the wire & connector break.
I don't think I'm obliged to write a 5 paragraph review. In a sea of choices it's hard enough to figure out what the good ones are. The galaxy buds plus fit my preference and you could easily find good reviews for them online.
