These earbuds had at least a second of delay

Visho89 12/27/2019

When playing PUBG or Call of Duty Mobile, there was a second of delay. It didn't support other codecs such as aptx which have almost no delay when playing. Videos and music had also a short delay. Only on certain apps such as youtube, was it working without delay. The feature of being able to hear ambient sound was good, the fit was excellent. The part of the delay was the dealbreaker for which I sold it the next day.

Unable to review adequately

Coleton 12/23/2019

The day of buying the earbuds they immediately failed to work correctly and samsung support told me to file a warranty. I find it distasteful as a Samsung fan that the product really has no way to be fixed and its defective, and expect better quality as a consumer. Even while I may have gotten the 1/1000 bud that doesn't work, the dissatisfaction still exists. The sound quality kn the one bud is fantastic but as a product I can't recommend since mine failed to function. I can change my review once I get a working pair, but from what I've seen online countless people have had this issue, with none of them resolved. It seems like more than just a manufacturing anomaly.

Satisfied! But could be better (suggestion below)

snehilv 12/8/2019

The product is well designed and is very convenient to use. However, I believe the product can be made better. Here is what I observe: When I talk to someone while eating (not even something munchy), the sound of that is heard by the person on the other side. I believe this is due to the audio is being transferred, preferably using the internal microphone (not the external microphone). This hurts the overall experience. I think this can be easily fixed by a software/firmware update. I hope this is taken care of in later updates.

Right Ear Bud Does Not Charge

Houston77048 12/5/2019

The fit is perfect and I definitely do not have to worry about it falling out. My issue is the right ear bud is not charging. Noticed it after the initial charge where the left was at 100% and the right was at 75%. Since it is not charged it is not connecting to the device of course. Tried unpairing and other troubleshooting but nothing worked. I will be returning these but I will definitely be getting another pair.

Mediocre at best

Jimbo 12/4/2019

Coming from iphone and airpods, these buds are ok at best. I got my free with purcahse, other wise they would be going back for a refund. Apple has the seamless connection, ease of fitting into ear, and sound quality is better. The transparency mode on samsung is useless, i just get more white noise, no sound from my surrounding is amplified or made clearer. So, if you are stuck with android and want some buds check out the Sony W series or the sennheiser buds, do not pay $129 for these things.

Horrible

Chan 11/27/2019

I was excited to purchase these head phones 6 months ago.... Well, whenever I try to use the headphones to talk people can't understand me and say I sound muffled. I have to continue to repeat myself or just take the call off the earpiece all together. I love Samsung and own just about everything they make from TV's, to phones, refrigerators, stove and microwave, but, this earpiece was my worse purchase ever from them.

FlyingEarBudExtroidinaire 11/24/2019

Thank you Samsung for the incredible design. I absolutely love how my ear buds propel 5ft+out of the charging case any time they are dropped from a 2 ft surface! Because of this I get to experience find the ear buds on the grass, find the earbuds in a dark parking lot, and have now had the pleasure of losing the second pair, both pairs lost in just 2 months! You are welcome for my money, i will not be buying these a third time. Awful design.

Pretty bad

Nikitriy 11/23/2019

I have been using them for how many months now. The sound is not bad, but for example Sony is better. the most important thing is that when playing music there are interference and that they are absolutely not suitable for calls. the one to whom I call hears me very badly, and sometimes I hear interference. I would like to return them of course, but time is lost

Sounded muffled.

Pandamia 11/22/2019

I bought this over the summer. I LOVED the complete wireless aspect. During calls, it sounded decent. But listening to music, it sounded like I was listening through a paper towel tube. I was surprised, being a Samsung product. Didn't know how to go to "ambient mode". Maybe it was always on ambient mode due to poor sound quality, listening to Amazon music from my Samsung Galaxy phone. Was disappointed, I returned it.

AWESOME

KerraWithTats 11/21/2019

I was thinking about which wireless earphone set to get between these and a few other brands but I didn't know much about the AKG sound besides the speakers on my tab S4 so when I was chosen to be a part of this campaign, I was THRILLED. They came pretty much the day after they shipped out and I was able to unleash a lovely world of music. They charged very quickly and the connection time was perfect. They connected to my phone so fast I didn't even know that the connection went through. All I did was open the case and my galaxy wearable app popped up ready to go.!!!! I love how small the case is because it can fit anywhere and the black is so amazing.! Also I love that they came with other ear gels to get the best fit for your ears.! Great job Samsung and thank you Insiders.!!!!! (My phone will not allow me to upload pics)

Absolutely perfect!

Cyndikins 11/19/2019

These earbuds are phenomenal. I use them at work throughout the day and they have plenty of charge left after an 8 hour workday. The sound quality is crystal clear and you can make adjustments to the bass, etc. Also, I have never had a pair of earphones or earbuds that has such noise cancelling properties before. Sometimes if I'm not paying attention to my surroundings at work, I'm not even aware of people talking to me. I literally connected these within seconds! I was listening almost immediately. The first time I had to charge, it charged extremely fast! I wasn't waiting long before I was back to it. I absolutely love these and I have suggested them to all of my Samsung loving friends. A++ in my book.

Galaxy Buds

Sullyman 11/19/2019

The Galaxy Buds, True Wireless Earbuds are by far the best ear buds that ive ever owned or used. Ive used many different brands over the years but none have compared to the crisp and clear sound quality and comfort of the Galaxy Buds. The sound quality is excellent and they fit great as well they dont look bad while wearing them either. They sync easy and have a great operating time. The charge will last me a couple days and thats great. I would highly recommend them for anyone who loves and enjoys listening to music.

Easy Buds

ErnieBaq 11/19/2019

My career requires me to travel a bit and I work from home. I had been researching ear buds for a while so I was very excited to try the pearl white ear buds. When I first opened the buds box I saw the case. The case is sleek and fits perfectly into my pockets. I also like, when fully charged it will charge the ear plugs without needing to be plugged in. I would estimate a fully charged use of the buds to get about 3-4 hours of use before it gently beeped to alert me it needed to be charged. Interestingly the right bud held a charge closer to 3 hours, whereas the left one would last a little over the 4 hours. So having the ability to pop the bud in the case for a quick recharge was very attractive to me. The buds themselves were actually bigger than I expected but it did not bother me at all once I had them on. They came with 3 different size rubber ear tips and bands. It allowed me to find the best fit. One thing I did notice is when I would use the buds for longer periods of time, it would warm my ears and the buds would slip out. I was also not able to use these more than walking. They did slip when I ran. I have a Android phone for my personal use and an iPhone for work and I did use the buds with iPhone 7 with no issues - but you don't get the super cool app that you can use with an android. It had many features for so many different ways to hear or not hear things. I used the noise canceling feature the most as the buds pick up every noise around you when your talking on the phone. Although the app was cool - I didn't find myself using it much after the initial awesomeness wore down, unless I was trying to pair the buds to other devices. The buds pair seamlessly with the phones but to pair with other devices - you do have to use the app. Overall, I wouldn't say these are for the active wearer but more for the sedentary type activities. I liked all of the features and the ease of use (which was super simple).

Great sounds... Perfect investment.

Jahson01 11/19/2019

Ever since purchasing these sets of headphones it's been hard to put them down.. Clarity of sounds is beyond excellent. Base is perfect.. voice is clear.. Best of all I dont have to charge them as much.. The ability to to answer calls, pause, play, and skip music is great.. They fit very comfortable in my ears.

Could be better

JesseGee 11/19/2019

I had high expectations for these buds. I love the new design they feel more comfortable and are easier to pair with the phone. I like the new size of the buds, they're smaller than the Icon x and the case is also smaller. The new wireless charging feature makes it convenient to charge. The downside to the buds are the sound is too low. The previous model had the ability to Master control the volume on your phone. The volume control on the buds are also gone. You could slide up or down to conrol volume. These buds only have a tap system. Tap once to play/pause twice to fwd and tap three to rewind. Tap and hold to summon Bixby, Google or Alexa. These buds are a good start to better buds for next year's model.

An excellent in ear experience

cody109 11/19/2019

The Samsung Buds (black) came out of the box and provided an excellent design. These small compact buds fit perfectly in my ears and even came supplied with extra tips to assist the user. These buds worked perfectly with my wireless charger. After days of testing these headphones I found the following: Pros: Sound quality was great for the price Design was wonderful. Black color was a plus. Small and compact. Easy to carry around. Cons: iOS wasn't as user friendly as pairing with an android but the process wasn't bad. Overall, if you are looking for headphones that are great for the gym and everyday life: these will definitely fill that void.

Heaven for your ears

tkdfromnc 11/19/2019

I will admit that I'm a devout Samsung user. However, I have always been skeptical of the wireless earbuds. Why? I just felt that they would be way too easy to lose. Much to my surprise these earbuds stayed in place far better than my go to bluetooth earbuds. They're also way more comfortable. The sound is outstanding. I love that I can play and pause my music just by tapping the bud. No more fumbling with my phone to find the right button. Have a call coming in? Answer it the same way. I love listening to podcasts while falling asleep. However co-sleeping with 2 small kids isn't always conducive of that. I need to be able to hear as they give me a million reasons why they can't sleep. You've all heard them - I'm not tired, I'm bored, I'm hungry, I'm thirsty. Yeah, sure kid, I know you just want to get up to watch Octonauts all night. With these buds I just use one in the ear on the pillow and my kids never know the difference. The other remains in the case fully charged. Sure with regular bluetooth ear buds you can just leave one out but you're also draining more battery life and blasting your tunes for everyone to hear. The battery life is great. I have yet to deplete it because I've developed a routine. I leave my charging case plugged up unless I'm traveling when I bring it with me. At the end of my day I drop them in the case. When I'm ready to slip away into musical bliss I just open the case and they're sync automatically. Using them is just that simple. Conclusion? Buy these, your ears won't be disappointed!

Nice

soccermom973 11/19/2019

so i only gave it a 3 Star because it took me forever to get them to connect to my phone which is not a Samsung - i would not recommend these for other phones than Samsung users - you dont get to use all the functions nor is there a app that works with the my phone for these ear buds. Now that is my review when purchasing these i was told that they work for samsung and another phone brands which i get they do work, they are really nice and hold a charge but there is a reason they are called Samsung Galaxy Buds, you dont get use of alot of features.. Now my daughter has a Samsung and she loves them, she down loaded the app, they connected immediately - she has tons of options to use on her phone with the connectivity, battery life, keeping track of the ear buds etc. I have another brand that i use for my phone now and she said compared to my phones the Samsung Galaxy Ear Buds has so many more features. The battery life on the Galaxy Ear Buds is great - she listens to music all day long on her commute and on breaks and only charges them once a week.

Disappointed

TommyLove 11/18/2019

I purchased these Earbuds yesterday and will be taking them back today. The design and comfort is there, but the quality and feature use isn't. I have to repeat myself several times in order for the person on the other end to understand me. When you just have one Earbud in you can only use the Quick Ambiance feature. Also, you have to give up features in order to use another. You can't control the Sound + Ambiance & Voice Command all at the same time... You have to give up controlling the sound of your headphones with the touchpad in order to use the Ambiance & Voice command features. The volume is also not great at all. Even with the Earbuds + Phone volume turned all the way up. I really wish these were designed better because I really like the aesthetic & comfortability of them. Disappointed.

Worst earbuds. Ever.

MLUELOFF 11/15/2019

I drive a big truck for a living and an older full-size Ford diesel fro everywhere else. After much research I landed on these Samsung earbuds. And I can tell you these are the worst earbuds I have ever had. First off, call volume even not in a noisy environment is not loud enough for my ears. A basically quiet environment yielded the same results, and voice texting was next to impossible. I would have to go back and edit so much I should've just typed it in the first place. Which brings me to the second disappointment. In my research it looked like there was a Samsung app for the iOS. After much digging, no there is not. The app that is available does not seem to do much with the earbuds at all. If there is any amount of background ground noise at all, these earbuds are useless. It took me beyond the Best Buy two week return policy to try them out, but when I did the first couple of calls in my work truck no one could hear me. Another call from my personal truck. Same result. I could not be heard or understood. I could hear the caller, but not with great volume or clarity. Had I been able to figure this out prior to the end of the return time, they would've gone back immediately. More time went by, I upgraded my phone from an iPhone 6s Plus to an iPhone 11 Pro Max. A couple of more calls, no difference. Now I have an expensive paperweight that I can use to hold papers on my desk at home, but with the compact size and light weight I dare not turn on the ceiling fan for their fear they will fail their job at that. Samsung has always been top-tier in my book. But unless I really missed something in my research, these are overhyped and worthless

Malfunctioning

Maria 11/14/2019

I love the noise cancellation and The sound quality is okay. I'm actually super disappointed with this purchase. 3 weeks into having them they started glitching, i contacted customer support and they told me to "reset" them. Which was a joke of a process, basically putting them in and out of the case!! Now they randomly don't play sound or the left one tends to go out. Price is not worth it if they're going to break within a month.

Amazing Wireless Earbuds

bswager 11/13/2019

I absolutely love these earbuds. From being extremely easy to setup and sync to my phone to the great sound quality, there is nothing I would change about these. I also enjoy the long battery life and the case that charges them as well. If that's not enough power then I can also wirelessly charge them with my phone! I also like the compact size of the earbuds and the case. The touch controls make it easy to adjust the volume, change songs or answer a call. The ambient sound is great for when you're at work and still need to be able to hear people. I would definitely recommend these.

Bishop T 11/13/2019

I had high expectations for my Samsung ear buds, since the promotional videos promised clear phone calls and even voice enhancement while in noisy environments. Everyone complains about not hearing me while in a call and have to disconnect my earbuds to talk on my phone... I have replaced fins and covers to make sure everything is on the right position and I have a tight fit. Extremely disappointed by this.

Comfortable and Handy Buds

mamaknowsbest2 11/12/2019

My husband recommended me to try out Galaxy Buds and at first I was skeptical because I am not a fan of in-ear type of headphones. However I decided to give it a try and use them throughout the day. I was pleasantly surprised that these Galaxy Buds were indeed pretty good! I was worried that they would not be comfortable but after installing the right ear tips, Galaxy Buds fit me perfectly and were pretty comfortable to use for an extended period of time. Talking about extended use of time, these buds lasted me long enough on Spotify and some podcasts I subscribe to, so the battery life was superb. The charging case was very handy to juice up my buds at the end of the day, plus wireless charging is a huge plus, no need to search for a USB-C cable. I enjoyed using these while driving, as I could use just one Bud to take calls and have my other ear on alert. I also used Galaxy Buds during my workout and they never fell out! I found the sound to be pretty good for such small buds, the vocals were clear, treble and bass were pronounced. The only suggestion to Samsung would be to make the touch area for controlling the buds a bit bigger and possibly add a functionality to change the volume, as I believe the previous generation had that feature. All in all, I was very pleased and frankly surprised that Galaxy Buds fit my life style, sounded very good and were quite comfortable!

Galaxy Buds

iluvndl 11/12/2019

These have very good sound quality. The range is great on them I can get up to 180 feet with clear line of sight and still have the music playing. if there is a wall though the range drops a good bit. I have been a little disappointed in the ambient sound option. you have to turn it on each time and since i want volume control I am not able to set it for quick ambient with a long press. so i have used the app each time. It picks up alot of other noises and not so well on peoples voices. but if you do not want to hear people talking while listening to music these are great. Battery life on these is around 7 days for me with regular use. Charging case makes it very easy to charge for me. I use the wireless charging often.

Amazing Sound

CBENZO 11/11/2019

unboxing the buds was easy! I connected them to my S9 easily with the galaxy gear app. The sound quality was huge! I used them at the gym & so far so awesome! They did not slip out made my workout more enjoyable! The controls are not complicated but will take me a few times to understand how it works. I can't wait to try them on a 5-hour flight new week!  UPDATE: I used the buds on a flight to Waikiki and listened to music & watched a movie. Love the sound! - the controls took a week to get used to them but now I love them!

Better than expected

Arsenal96 11/11/2019

These Galaxy buds are definitely impressive. They pair fairly easy and are pretty straightforward and simple to use. The sound quality is way above average for earbuds this size. The battery never ran out and whe it got low all I had to do was put them in the case for a quick charge and back to listening to head bangers. Call quality is fine, just picks up a little too much noise but that's fine. Would definitely reccomend these to anyone interested in wireless earbuds. Only other issue I had was when in a sense area they would drop the sound for a second or two but that's expected from most bluetooth earbuds. Otherwise I have no complaints and thse will be my new daily earbuds. P.S. These are great for multitasking because they're so small, wireless and the battery is good. You can move around your house, work or anything without worrying about them.

Great Quality Ear buds

Dasdecoy 11/11/2019

I had the joy of using the Galaxy IconX which were great then prior to trying out the new Samsung Galaxy buds. A few things I've noticed right away are 1. Smaller in size. 2. Sound quality is excellent and the noise canceling is fantastic. After a few days I've notice a few more improvements over the iconX. The Galaxy buds have a more secure fit. They never fell out during jogging, exercise or biking. I use them frequently, commute to and from work, even sleeping. I use them to listen to music & tv shows they last me pretty much all day having them in use nonstop. But if I do need to charge them, it's as simple as putting it on top of one of my wireless charging pads. I haven't had the need to yet, but you can also charge them via your phone if it has the wireless charging feature. The Samsung Galaxy Buds are stylish also. They look better than most other wireless ear buds that look like you left a Q-tip or tissue in your ear. Now only other important area of these are using them for phone calls. The call quality is great even in noisy surroundings. I can hear the other side perfectly. However, in an outside setting I've had numerous people mention they can hardly hear me but hear more of the background. In an indoor setting, they hear me fine, but I have to speak slightly louder. I didn't have this problem with the previous model. I still need to play around with the settings to see if that fixes it. Overall, these are a great pair of ear buds. They charge quickly, last longer than I expected, great sound and very comfortable. I only realize I still have them on when someone talks to me and I can't hear them. I definitely recommend these!

nostroviax 11/11/2019

I received the ear buds a few days ago so I need a bit more time to fully review them, but so far so good. The minimal packaging is nice. Not too much to throw away. The case is nice and compact. The buds are very comfortable in the ear. I used the standard tips on them and consider my ears normal size. The sounds quality is really good for truly wireless buds. The bass drops off a bit if the buds start coming out and the seal they make in the ear is broken, but when they are fit properly the bass is punchy and nice. Not too over bearing. Battery life has been good so far. I have used them to listen to music and workout. My workouts usually last around 45 minutes and I have done 3 so far without recharging them. The touch controls are a bit confusing unless you read the manual. I have made several phone calls and the calls sounds crisp and there was no static. The callers on the other line told me I sounded great. I recommend downloading the latest firmware and fully charging the buds before the first use. I am still curious how long the batteries will last without me having to charge them, but so far these buds are really good. I also like that the charger is USB C. Now I can use my phone charger to charge both the phone and ear buds. I will update the testimonial about battery life the more I use the buds. Update: After using the buds for over a month I stand my original testamonial. They are really good. The battery life exceeded my expectations. I can get a long workout in, listen to music while I work and still have juice left over. Charging is a breeze. Sound quality is really good. One thing that could make these better would be noise cancellation. It's a bit hard to hear when I am driving, but beyond that they are great buds!

So convenient!

bsimons23 11/11/2019

I use my Galaxy Buds to mow, on a plane, at work, or while I am exercising. All activities were I am moving or am limited on space. The Galaxy Buds meet all my requirements for these activities as they stay in my ears, no wires to wrestle with, and sound great. Are they better than cans headphones or ear buds double their costs? No...but they are perfect for my lifestyle and work great with my Samsung Galaxy S10+. If you want great sounding buds that are convenient and discreet, these are for you.

Excellent ear Buds

jeiffry 11/11/2019

When my wife received the Galaxy Buds i was skeptical about them until i tried them. The sound is great, really clear; the ambient sound helps a lot to be aware of your surroundings and the sensation of not being wearing a thing is magnificent. I can tell is one of the best samsung products, the wireless charging option is a truly useful feature for those of us that are always on the go. The Samsung Galaxy Buds are light weight and also come with spare silicone replacements to find what goes with your needs. I enjoyed this days using them for work, commute and workout without wire boundaries but aware of my surroundings. I recommend the galaxy buds 100%

Most convenient and performing ear buds

rick131 11/11/2019

I have used in ear buds for years. I am always on the run and have to take calls in a lot of different environments (work, yardwork, skyways, etc.). I also like to listed to music and the ability that the buds have to pause music and allow a call to come through by just tapping it is awesome! The sound is great and the convenience of having a charging case can't be denied. Nothing is worse that dead ear buds. It's a special bonus that the case can be wirelessly charged off by Samsung monitor :-). Battery life has been good and I love the notifications to warn me as they are getting close to losing battery power. My previous earbuds would just shut off. The only thing I have to be careful of is losing them. They are small and could be very easily lost. The connection with the App is great to tweak the sound profile.

Decent earbuds

Oralia84 11/11/2019

For the most part I have had positive experiences with other Samsung products but I had yet to try their listening devices so I was curious to try the Galaxy Buds. I was impressed with their sleek, modern and compact design. However, they are not truly noise cancelling earbuds, they will isolate some of the outside noise but must fit securely in your ears, which is why these are adjustable and come with additional wing tips and earbud tips. Once I found my comfortable fit these were great for listening to music at the gym, on the go while riding my bicycle or just sitting at my desk at work. The other features I enjoyed most is the wireless charging case and a longer lasting battery life versus other brands of wireless earbuds I've used. The downside for me especially since I am an Apple iPhone user is I was not able to use all the features available as certain features only work with Android phones. Another cool feature was being able to tap on the earbud to play, pause or answer or end a call rather than having to take my phone out to do that. Overall the Samsung Galaxy Buds are great wireless earbuds for the price.

My Buds Experience - so far

TheGrumpster 11/11/2019

I wish I had received these before I was scheduled to take a trip so that I could have used them for an extended period of time, but they arrived the day after I returned. That being said, here are my thoughts to this point I love how well they fit as I usually have a hard time getting earbuds to stay in. These hold into my ears very well and when they are in I don't hear much outside sounds, even when no music is playing. They have good highs and lows, and I can definitely tell when there is good bass being played in the music. They do not sound tinny at all and are very clear and sharp sounding. I love the fact that I don't have to search for a cable to charge them when I can just sit the case on my wireless charger (or the back of my phone if necessary) and they will charge. This is a HUGE plus for me. I have them paired with my Samsung Note 10+ and the pairing was simple and easy. I've had no issues with them re-connecting anytime that I've used them, put them away and then taken them back out to use again. My next test will be to wear them when I go out for a several mile run and see how they hold up in terms of staying put and the temps, since I live in a very warm climate. I've run into problems with others getting too hot and shutting down. I've had a chance to use these in a variety of situations (working out, running/ train rides back and forth to work) and I can say they are definitely worth it. The noise cancelling on this is amazing. They stay in my ears with no problem. They are also very discreet snd a lot of times people don't even know that I have them in. I love them and will definitely be recommending them to my friends when asked what earbuds they should get. Probably the best thing is how easy they connect and pair to my Samsung Note10+ each time. I never have to check the connection, and they don't cut out like many of the earbuds I've had in the past and there are NO WIRES! I love the cordless charging since I have several of the wireless charging discs they charge quickly and stay charged.

They Work Great!

Janice9487 11/7/2019

I got the Samsung Galaxy Wireless Earbuds to try because I wanted to see if they would be better than others we had. They are!! First the set up was very easy for someone like me who isn't too tech savvy. The ear buds work great in both ears! The sound stays in both ears and doesn't go out. The sound is vibrant and even. The charge stays for a good while. I am quite happy with these ear buds and would definitely buy the Galaxy ear buds again. Someone just asked if I used the app features. My husband likes the balancing features he said that works great. I use the ambient mode when I am walking because I can hear my surroundings,I like it. It is easy to control with the app.

Look Ma No Cords! Great sounding without the wires

walter116 11/7/2019

These are great. I use them while mowing the yard or on my work conference calls. Great sound and love the talk time. I can go on and on without worrying about charging them. The case is great as it fits easily into my pants pocket. It isn't heavy and not obtrusive.. Using the Wearable App is simple. Easy to set your preferences for sound as well as touch controls. Having used this for my Active Watch made it that much simpler. The app also tells you when there are new Updates and walks you through the Update process. The only negative is that when you are in a noisy environment the sound that your caller hears is muffled. This is because these units have 2 mics. One on the outside and one on the inside. Normally they use both to get the best sound.. When it gets noisy they only use the internal mic. It sounds like when you plug your ears and talk. I hope Samsung can resolve this with a firmware update..

Innovative, high-tech,

TeChLuVrR 11/6/2019

I must first start with that I really enjoyed these Samsung Galaxy Buds. I didn't think that I would actually use them as much because I thought they would be hurting my ears but they didn't. Instead, I found myself using them all the time with everything. I just mostly kept them in my ears throughout the day only to charge them. You get really great bass and treble and it's almost like surround sound in your ears. There is hardly any atmosphere noise. They come with different size tips and two different sized wings but it's really easy to put inside your ear. You put it in and you turn them outwards towards your face and they stay. They didn't fall off no matter what I did, cleaning the yard, doing chores, walking, or playing with a five year old. The buds have been able to fit my whole family just changing the tips or wings so I'd say they are a universal fit. I really like the the shape of the case and it's very convenient because it fits right in your hand and you could easily put them anywhere. I know it comes in three colors but I got the black ones and there are skins that you can put on them to change the look and color of it. There are also protective cases which I think you will need to have them clipped on you or a bag if you're the type of person that moves around alot from school or work. I would say that the buds last you about 6 hours or so and if you pop them right back into the case and let them charge up they will give you another six to seven hours which is great and they charge pretty fast. If you charge them for 15 minutes you get one and a half hours more of play time. I think it's a really great feature. Depending on what you're listening (video or music) and the level of volume that you have it playing at, they can last you more or less. You can also wirelessly charge them on your Note 10 plus or on a wireless charger. Over all, I am very happy to have been able to try the Samsung Galaxy Buds. They have great technology and they look beautiful. They are exactly what I need for my music and videos. You won't be disappointed to invest in these earbuds.

True Wireless Wonders

stanmedd 11/6/2019

I bought these Samsung Wireless Buds because I have already owned 2 previous generations and have been pleased with its quality and I also knew that Samsung would have definitely improved these and made them even more enjoyable. First of all, these Galaxy Buds are comfortable, which is very important to me. They fit nicely in my ears and stay put even under rigorous activities. I like its new and improved form factor compared to the second generation called Gear IconX Wireless Buds, they are smaller and lighter in my opinion. If for some reason, you find Galaxy Buds uncomfortable in your ears, please take some time and try out all the spare wings and tips Samsung kindly provided in the box, I am sure you will find the right fit! The set up was really seamless, I really liked it when I opened the charging case and a notification popped up on my Note 10 that prompted me to pair the buds with my phone. I would recommend that you download a must have app for these buds called Galaxy Wearable, as it will open a vast amount of very helpful and practical options. The app will let you monitor the battery level, update the firmware, and unlock functions like enabling Ambient Sound, choose Notifications and change your Audio Equalizer to your preferred style. There are five settings: Dynamic, Bass Boost, Soft, Treble Boost and Clear and I would suggest that you play around with these presets and find the best one. My choice will stay with Dynamic for now as it produces a wide and clear soundstage. Another very useful feature of the app is Find My Buds. As you can imagine, these buds are pretty small and you may accidentally lose one, but have faith as you can locate it easily, because the lost bud will emit a loud enough sound for you to find it! Battery life of the buds is very good and lasted me for 5 hrs and 54 mins and thanks to the charging case, it can quickly bring them back to life again thanks to the wireless charging ability I can even charge these with my Note 10 Plus. The charging case's 252-mAH battery offers only an additional 7 hours of battery life. I found that it was fairly easy to control my music via the touch pad on each bud, however I do miss the ability to change volume by swiping up or down. I have never experienced any audio drop outs and the call quality was pretty good thanks to the 5.0 Bluetooth which also allows a longer distance. Love these buds! I received these buds for a discount in return for my honest and fair review

Simply Amazing

MrLes 11/6/2019

I have tried many wireless earbuds before and I can honestly say that these are the best. I like the fact that they are very easy to pair with my different devices. The range is also incredible. I was upstairs listening to music and I went downstairs but I forgot to take my phone with me. I forgot to take my phone because the music never stopped playing, the range is that good. Also, I've noticed that I can choose to block out all outside sounds by pushing the earbuds slightly further into my ears or I can still slightly hear what's going on outside by not pushing them all the way in. Either way I can still hear clear crisp music. The battery life is amazing, I can get all day music streaming with no problems at all. I also want to mention the design of the carrying/ charging case. The sleek design fits perfect in my pocket and I don't have to worry about the earbuds getting lost. Also, the wireless charging capability is definitely an added convenience. I would highly recommend these to anyone who is looking to purchase wireless earbuds, they are definitely worth it.

Love the ear buds

axhillii 11/6/2019

Hi So I love listening to music, movies, etc I also like trying new gadgets so was excited to try these buds. Pairing was easy even with my older model Samsung phone. I must say I was nervous about them staying in my ear so I do suggest making sure you have the correct size tip in and be mindful where you are standing when you first wear them cause they were falling out a lot while I tried to learn how to properly wear them. The sound quality is good and you can use the app to help adjust the sound for you if it's not loud enough. There are helpful videos available if you dont know how to adjust the volume I found one online. It charges easy using a charge cable or a wireless pad. I usually have only one in my ear while at work so I can still hear my work phone ring and it works well that way. I have really been enjoying them and haven't had an issue with them running out of power because I randomly charge them just to be sure they don't.

Love My Ear Buds

Babygirlbankss 11/6/2019

I love my Samsung Galaxy Buds. They were very easy to connect to my Galaxy S10 right out the box. I use them at work pretty much every day. Now they don't last my entire 8 hour shift but when they get low it's so easy to pop them into their case and charge them again. I fascinated my coworkers when I charged them on the back of my cell phone. I have wired bluetooth headphones and I don't even want to use them anymore. The size and carrying case for the buds make it so convenient to just pop in your pocket or purse and go. I work in an office setting the quick ambient mode is a great feature. I can easily turn this feature on and off if someone needs to talk to me or I need to hear what is going on around me. Music really sounds great playing on these ear buds. The touch features to skip through your playlist are easy to learn and use.

These are great, only one quirk...

JonCherba 11/6/2019

I love these earbuds. Sound quality is great, bass is pretty good. My only real issue is with the ambient sound feature, if I turn it on and if I take one of them out the feature is turned off even if I put it back in. I have to go back into the app and turn it back on. I love the feature without any music or other audio playing because it allows me to hear things I do not hear normally, which is nice. I would love it if I could turn the feature on and use it with either earbud or both, sometimes I like to have just one in and if I could have that feature on it would help me hear things that are being blocked by the earbud in my ear. other then that I love these things. I'm mainly writing this review because I would love it if Samsung could implement an app update to allow the ambient sound feature to be turned on regardless if both earbuds are in your ears or not. Make it stay on even if just one earbud is in my ear. PLEASE! Thanks!

Amazing Sound, Comfortable and Easy to Use

JazzyH222 11/6/2019

These galaxy buds are really great. I am a die hard Iphone person and I am seriously considering these in my collection. I used my moms buds at the gym because mine had broke. I must say I didnt expect them to be so comfortable. I have lots of ear piercings and they fit perfectly with no bother. I was able to complete my hour and a half work out with ease listening to my favorite tunes. I was able to pair them quickly without even downloading the app. I now see why my mom doesn't let these out of her sight. These buds are light weight yet have amazing sound quality and they stay put. I was at the gym doing cardio and running on the treadmill and they stayed in place. Battery life is 6 hours, an additonal 7 with the case, I didn't need that, so they lasted. They also survived me sweating on the treadmill and stayed in place with no issues. I would recommend these to anyone looking for a good pair of buds. Since I was using my mom's buds, I guess I had better get my own pair, as I said, she never lets these out of her sight!

Excellent Audio, easy to use

tranaudo3 11/1/2019

These headphones have to be the best and easiest Bluetooth headphones I have ever used. Simply open the case and remove the headphones and they are instantly paired to your phone. Battery life has phenomenal where i easily get 5 hours out of them and the sound is great. Then when I am not using them, i put them back in the case where they charge themselves for the next time i need to use them. I can also put them on a wireless charger to charge which is so convenient. While the headphones are in simply tap once to pause the music on the right headphone, tap on the left headphone to do voice commands, hold the right headphone to activate ambient noise mode so you can hear things around you and double tap to go to the next song. Super convenient controls to use when working out and then someone comes up to you to talk. A lot of people compare these to apple airpods but I dont understand why. These headphones are in a different class. Audio is better, battery life on a single charge is 3 times as long, and the charge case adds even more battery. Oh and did i mention these headphones are $50 cheaper than apples. Samsung really has a win here and I love my galaxy buds.
