Excellent fit; not so excellent sound

ScottieHurricane 5/21/2020

So I bought these to compete with my Apple AirPod Pros. I was hoping Samsung's AKG sound would be able to compete with Apple. While the fit of these are comfortable and do not fall out, after reverting to my AirPod pros there were comparison in terms of sound, acoustics and bass. Granted, the Pros cost more, but goes to show you get what you pay for. one more point of advise, I also have a pair of Sony 1000 noise canceling earbuds. These sound very good and are a true competitor to the Airpods, except none of the sizes work with my ear and they constantly fall out. That said, I have to give it to the AirPod Pros hands-down. However, the Samsung does just fine if you don't care as much about sound quality......

LUV2EXCElR8 4/28/2020

I bought this a few weeks ago and it really seemed to have its charm, but after a while of listening it continued to cut out and stop the connecting to my Bluetooth. They seem like great headphones but it's a shame that they stopped working so soon.

Customer 4/21/2020

I've had these buds for a bit now but every time I leave my phone and keep my buds in they start losing connection after walking a few steps. I tested this in a straight line after taking 10 steps the music starts to cut out or just moving my head bit it just loses the connection.

Best Earbuds/headphones I have ever owned

datechboss101 4/14/2020

I bought my Galaxy Buds on April 8th, 2020 from Costco as they were on sale for $99, since my previous BT headphones (LG HBS 780) decided to stop working the day before. Since I am a hardcore Samsung Fanboy (my phones been Galaxy S series, got a washer/dryer, dishwasher, TVs, Blu-Ray DVD player, Level BT headphones and binocolars), so I decided to give Samsung audio another shot, as I typically go with LG for my BT headphones. So far, these really fit my ears perfectly without annoying my neck with wires. Connection is seemless with my 3 year old Galaxy S8+ and it connects quickly from the case to my ear. I hadn't found a single negative about this products as it is superior than the LG BT earbuds that I am acustomed to.

ChrisfromNewark 3/19/2020

I would like to give 4-5 stars for the product it self. I purchase on pair of Samsung buds for myself and loved it so much, I purchased one for everyone in my household (4). One of the sets is now not working. Although I purchased direct from samsung.com. they are now telling me that since the s/n number is now illegible, they cannot service my buds. I'm trying to be calm but this makes no sense. The purchase can be verified on the site. smh A product is only as good as it's customer service.

CalB 3/14/2020

After months of reports about consumers losing their charging case you guys still have not offered to replace them if you lose you case or if someone takes them it's pretty much over and you have to buy a brand new set simply for the case... But apple gives you the offer to buy a replacement charging case

The Galaxy Buds has amazing features that you wouldn't expect from a regular wireless buds. The silver matches my Note 10+ Aura Glow so well. Although I do wonder where I can obtain replacement tips for Galaxy Buds Silver, because I seem to lost them.

WILL NEVER STAY IN YOUR EAR, ITS TERRIBLE

Annoyed 1/30/2020

I'm so annoyed with these "headphones". They always cut off(audio), the charge time is fast, but sometimes you wonder why they are dead and haven't been used. Oh yeah, don't forget that you will like 100% lose at least one of them!!!!!! Hopefully you wont be like me and it falls out of your ear in the bathroom and FALLS INTO THE TOILET AS YOU'RE FLUSHING!!! Yeah, if these things would STAY WHERE THEY ARE PUT this wouldn't have happened! But of course, these never stay in your ear and now I'm FORCED to buy another paid as my NOTE 10+ DOESN'T HAVE A HEADPHONE JACK!!! Just wonderful!

Right earbud stopped functioning after one month.

Knewberry 1/26/2020

The right earbud appears to charge when placed in the charger, but it is DOA. No response from the bud, and the app shows it with an exclaimation point. I tried everything from unpairing/uninstalling the app to cleaning the pins. There is no visible reason for this to happen, and I have not used the earbuds in such a way to cause harm. It seems to just be a dud.

Started Great

KingLeo561 1/15/2020

I bought this a week ago, sound quality was great, the setup was fast and easy. After 1 week the volume in my left headphone went extremely low. Look up a solution, thousands of people are reporting the same issue. One person is on his 3rd pair becasue they dont troulbeshoot them they tell you send them in and they will send you another pair. Problem is all of them have the same issue. Also Samsungs customer service is horrible, and so is their reconicilitation for any issues. PLEASE DONT BUY, YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.

Tremendous Step Up

Gavin 1/8/2020

These Ear Buds are a huge step from the Iconx 2018s with those i went threw 2 Pairs and after a month with both sets the volume was stuck at minimum. With these not only Has the volume been good But it has been a huge sound quality increase. Could use a little more in the Bass region but over all very good. I really love how well these preform and how effortless and seamless they pair and work with the app. There also very comforterbal. I could write a book on the amazing preformance of the Galaxy Buds.

Good but has a problem

the unfortunate ios user 12/23/2019

I don't think these are in any way inferior to the air pods in anyway specs wise. They both sound great and fit nice but that's more user dependent. One of the advantages of the Samsung buds is the downloadable app it lets you customize the sound of each bud, look at the battery life and use ambiance mode. BUT ITS ONLY AN ADVANTAGE IF YOU CAN ACCESS IT. Unfortunately the app is not compatible to ios meaning if you're an iphone user with these buds then you can't make full use of the product. Its been almost a year since release so I don't know how much longer it'll take them to update the app for ios or if they ever will.If you've got an android device I'd defiantly cop it otherwise you'll want to weigh the alternatives.

Terrible mic quality

Jimmy 12/15/2019

Sound and design is good but the Mic is horrible as with all bud style headphones. People say it sounds muffled unless on in a completely quiet room. If I'm in a car driving with the windows up and music off people say It sounds like I'm in a train. Mic quality was way better on my level u pro headphones. Returning to store.

Great Fit, Poor Audio, Not Worth the $$$

Justin 12/5/2019

I use both wired and wireless headphones, buds, and pods. The Galaxy Buds have the best fit I've ever experienced, very snug, and great for running. However, the audio on these buds are lackluster at best. Most competing buds at the same price point offer crisp, full audio. With the Galaxy Buds, it feels like the audio is muted behind the mesh/rubber. Not worth purchasing separately.

NickManDude 11/27/2019

The battery life was supose to be a little bit better than the Gear Icons X. I owned them and then I bought the new silver Galaxy Buds and I found that the case's battery life is... not that good. I was expecting better from it but then I looked at the capacity and found that it was actualy less than the old ones I had. Kinda disappointed. Also, I want the swiping up and downfor volume back, I don't like haveing to choose between having volume controls or ambient sound. I want them both ):

Best wireless buds EVER

Alex 11/20/2019

I enjoy taking my buds out on a daily basis and putting them into my ear. I feel stylish. I feel like I'm in power. I can put these ear buds in and forget about whats going on around me. I love the quality on these little guys along with their color options. I own the white and silver color variants and use whichever I prefer on a daily basis. Even though there's no ANC, the seal in your ear keeps most noise out and that's very impressive to me. Thank you, Samsung.

Iove the galaxy buds but... Cons I need to see how charged my case is thru the app... Better find my bud feature Louder I would give a better rating but they sound great but the need to be a touch louder and slightly more bass nothing crazy but just a little more Longer lasting Maybe noise canceling Better touch sensor Pros They feel great in the ear The sounds quality is great Calls sounds great functions great Change last for a good amount of time Case is nice feels like quality Nothing better for the price Love how it works with the samsung phones Seamless bluetooth Side note better app features or a over haul in general or maybe a galaxy buds app with more options All in all I love these ear buds there my go to daily drivers last longer then my phone great for the price and over all bonus if you have a galaxy phone

Perfect wireless earbuds

Autumn 10/30/2019

I got my Galaxy buds about a month ago and I have had virtually no major issues with them so far. They can be a little boring before you get everything adjusted but once you do, they have incredibly nice sound quality, great battery life, and pair incredibly easy with any Galaxy phone/tablet. Plus they feel like virtually nothing in your ears, especially if you get Comply Foam tips. And as a kicker the Aura Glow ones are really pretty!!!!

Estoo 10/28/2019

This item was amazing for the first few months ive had it, i have lost one bud now and it seems you need to have another new pair to have both in sync, it makes no sense why there wouldnt be at least a replacement price for just one and in many forums Samsung states that you would need to buy a NEW PAIR, sorry not doing that.

Room for improvement

Spinders 10/27/2019

I bought these a couple weeks ago new off of Ebay at a much lower price. Happy I did, because these were not worth the money. I fell in love with the idea of wireless earbuds to try to listen to my lectures at work. Saw ambient hearing as a feature,where it's supposed to let in surrounding noise. The problem is that these buds are rather large for my canals and they completely plug up my ear drum. I cant hear any ambient noise in the background or anyone talking to me. They are so soundproof that I can actually hear my footsteps when I walk, which is rather annoying. MAKE THEM SMALLER!!

For music only

ClassicMan23 10/14/2019

I received my Galaxy buds as a promo with my S10+. I was really hoping these would compliment the phone and outperform the Air Pods. The audio quality with music is excellent as is the fit. I can workout while wearing these with no fear of them falling out. However, I am majorly dissatisfied with the quality on phone calls. I am constantly being told that I sound as thought I am talking under water. I have to quickly disconnect bluetooth and use the handset or my other bluetooth to speak on the phone. It would be awesome if this major flaw can be fixed via a software update, if not, I will have to look for a better option. I can't imagine this issue was not noticed during product testing.

Galaxy Buds

Steelerfan 10/9/2019

I got these a couple of weeks back. I honestly don't use them that much, so I find that I just leave them on the charger until I do. I honestly wish Samsung would have just left the plug instead of adding the unnecessary upcharge of buying buds. However, getting the $100.00 discount takes most of the sting away. As for the buds they seem good enough.

Horrible sound for call and music

GREEYGYRL 10/4/2019

I received a pair as part of my promotion for pre-order of my Note 10+. I gave two stars because the set up was the easiest ever. The sound quality (even when changing the EQ on the App) was horrible. When using for calls the person couldn't even hear me talk. Music when adding base almost made it worse. I will keep as a back up to the wired headset... ( which are amazing.. wish you could figure out better sounding Bluetooth)

Sounds great but can't make phone calls

aslandholm 10/3/2019

If you only want to listen to music these are great but if you want to talk to anybody you need to be in a quiet room. The other person can not hear you unless you are in total silence. This is a known issue and so far nothing seems to be working to fix it. The is one of the main things I wanted it for and now I have $130 headphones that I don't use.

Terrible audio delay when watching any video

J8RR3TT 9/30/2019

Good for music and phone calls. Absolutely terrible for watching videos from any platform. There's an audio delay, so the the sound doesn't line up with the mouths of people on screen. This issue persists across many platforms including YouTube, Netflix, sling, IG, twitch, Twitter, etc. I've tried unpairing and re-pairing, restarting my phone, messing with codec settings I'm Dev options. Nothing seems to fix the delay. The buds are brand new, had them for 3 days before writing this review. They've never gotten wet or been worked out with. I'm on the latest version of Android that Samsung allows on the note 10+. Everything is up to date including the phone, the buds, and the wearbles app.

The sound is wonderful. Love the charging on top of my phone with the case. Biggest complaint which is why I only gave 3 stars... I have the smallest ear attachments on them and they still fall out of my ear. I want to use them for working out and cannot due to they fall out as soon as I start jumping up and down or start running. I wish I had bought air pods instead due to them being so light and better fit in the ears.
