Palm is back again with…some earbuds? Really?
- Palm is launching its first set of TWS earbuds today with the Palm Buds Pro.
- The stemmed ‘buds come in one color (black) but you can grab different colors of silicone cases.
- Early birds can get the earbuds for $99 but they will cost $129 when they hit general sales on November 9.
Almost three years ago exactly, the “new” Palm released the incredibly small Palm Phone. It was meant to act as a companion phone to your main phone, although reviews and sales prevented it from making a big splash in the industry.
Now, the company is releasing only its second product in over three years of existence: Palm Buds Pro. It looks like the tech industry’s obsession with launching true wireless earbuds couldn’t escape Palm, either.

The new earbuds borrow the stemmed design originated by Apple with its AirPods. However, the design is a bit curvier and the ‘buds only come in one color: black. Palm is also selling silicone cases that wrap around the charging case so you can add a bit of color. Those cases come in Shadow Black, Rose Pink, and Navy Blue.
Palm didn’t give us many definitive specs for the earbuds. It did say that they feature active noise cancellation which, if of good quality, could be a decent perk for earbuds as inexpensive as these.
How you can get the Palm Buds Pro
The Palm Buds Pro are available now for pre-ordering. Pre-orders get a set of the ‘buds for $30 off the list price, which brings them down to $99. Additionally, the silicone cases are also priced lower for pre-orders at $14.99, or $10 off. You can grab them now at Palm.com.
If you don’t pre-order, the earbuds will hit Amazon and other third-party retailers on November 9. At that point, the earbuds will cost $129 and the cases will cost $24.99.
The Palm Buds Pro are only available in North America, specifically the United States, Canada, and Mexico. However, Palm will also eventually support shipping to other international markets, but it wouldn’t divulge where or when.
