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! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

The volume is terrible low.
If you ever had quality earbuds, before this is not it. I'm a music junkie; therefore I was so excited to buys these. I legit am heart broken. They suck. They are so low in sound. When I saw it was made by the same company that makes the earphones that come with when you buy a Samsung phone I was totally for it ,because they are pretty good. You can get a pair of dollar store earphones and they will be louder than this. Highly likely to return.

A blast with my new buds

The Samsung Galaxy Buds provides an amazing sound experience. I like how I can use it on my tablet, laptop, spin bike and smartphone. Perfect for listening to music and podcasts as well as watching movies and tv shows on my devices. These buds come in handy for walking as well. I like the fit of the buds in the ear, they seem to stay in place. The battery life is great. I especially like the carrying case and charger all in one. This is great for when on the go.

Decent earbuds

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. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Samsung Galaxy Ear Buds

The galaxy buds are very easy to connect using the Samsung wear app. The settings are easy to use and understand. The battery life is excellent they often last me more then one day with medium usage. I'm not an audiophile but the sounds quality is great for me. They work together great and individually which is a nice feature. I have worn them and they have never had them fall out of my ears even during rigorous physical activity. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Listen UP/Samsung Buds

I had been using wired headphones to listen to music and take phone calls with my Samsung Galaxy Note 9 and decided to upgrade to the Samsung brand to match my phone. I wanted something stylish, functional, and gym ready. I got all three with my new Samsung Buds!

My biggest concern with bud headphones was whether they would stay in my ears. I had tried other brands and did not feel confident with their ability to stay put during a gym workout. The Samsung Buds, however, are perfection. They sit in my ears with ease. In fact, it is easy to forget that I am wearing them. The sound is crystal clear. Pairing with my phone was foolproof. Took no time at all out of the box.

The carrying case is shaped like a jellybean, and it is small enough to fit in your pocket in order to keep your unused Buds safe. I know the biggest PLUS for me is how well they fit in my ears. One more point, so easy to use, I got a pair for mom. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Wireless earbuds that stay put!

These are the best wireless earbuds I've ever had! They are truly wireless and yet they don't fall out of your ears. My ears are small and I was surprised they stayed in so well. The sound quality is great, and so is the battery life. One full charge gives you 6 hours of play time, and you can charge the ear buds and the case at the same time wirelessly, so I can use my S10 to charge them which is convenient and awesome! And everything you need to do is just a tap away. You tap to answer/end calls, change songs, turn volume up/down and to get help from Bixby or google. I absolutely love these!

My new favorite bluetooth headphones!

Ok here is some background, I have the Gear IconX 2016 (the original buds, which everyone copied!) and the Level-U Pro. I enjoyed the portability of the IconX, but the audio quality was not up to par. I switched to using the Level-U Pro, which has very good audio quality, but the portability was not there. I can say now the perfect combo is here, the Galaxy Buds! I have the same (if not better) audio quality and the portability. Compared to the IconX, there are some features missing, such as the HR monitor and onboard storage. However, these features won't be missed. What you do get with the buds, is a more compact form factor, much better audio and more practical features. Setup was a breeze, with great range, no cutting out and the app is great. You can tune the audio and the left/right taps. One of my favorite features is wireless charging! I have been using wireless charging since my Note 2 and have never looked back. Now, almost all my tech is wireless charged. My Note 8, my Gear S3 and now my Galaxy Buds! The photos I have below are what is included in the box (note that a power brick is missing), size comparison between the IconX, Buds and power brick for comparison and lastly the difference between the Buds and IconX. I highly recommend them! They have become my daily driver! Thanks Samsung for continuing to create great products! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Premium Sound

I tested the new Samsung Galaxy Buds for an extensive period. I wanted to test the functionality of the headphones at home, work, and in between. I was really surprised at the sound quality. I did not expect such a broad range of sound from such a little device. The paring process was really simple while using the Galaxy S10. My phone recognized the buds as soon as I opened the charging case. Then I opened the Galaxy Wearable app and I was notified of an update for the buds immediately. I must say that the Galaxy buds are comfortable and stay in ear while walking, jogging or running. I didn't experience the normal ear soreness from extended usage as with some other headphones. While listening to music, the Galaxy buds did a good job of removing background noise. I couldn't hear much of my surroundings at all. Then, I tested the Ambient Aware feature while at work, and this was really useful. Most people did not recognize that I even had headphones in. The Ambient Aware feature allowed me to hear my surroundings by using the built in mic on the headphones. Portability is also a big plus. Being able to pop the Galaxy buds in and out and having a charging case is a useful tool to have. The charging case is vital at work too. I can get about 5 hours of music listening before having to charge the buds. The coolest feature is having the ability to charge the case and the Galaxy buds. I can get through a whole 9 hour office day having to charge the buds for a few minutes a day. Overall, I recommend the Galaxy Buds for anyone who wants a premium sound from affordable headphones.

Great earbuds

These Galaxy Buds are my first wireless earbuds/headphones that I have owned. I am impressed how slick they are. Connecting them to ntu Galaxy S8 Plus was a breeze. The default earbhd piece makes the buds very comfortable in my ears. The TouchPad is a great touch. I like the customization that is offered in the Galaxy Wear app. I also tested the buds on my work iPad. The sound is great even when connected to iOS devices. I highly recommend these earbuds.

Best Buds

It's fair to say that the most satisfying thing about a new pair of wireless earbuds shouldn't be the process of charging the battery. However, for Galaxy Buds owners who also own one of the variants of Galaxy S10, that may well be the case. I'm not talking about plugging in the USB-C cable, rather the moment you find yourself short of juice, take your S10+, flip it over, place the Galaxy Buds case on to the rear of the phone, and watch the Buds' charging light ping to life. Now *that* is a feeling of deep satisfaction. It's important to note, wirelessly charging your Galaxy Buds from your phone isn't just a party trick, nor is it incredibly useful in a pinch, but it's also an indication that Samsung is thinking of its product line as an entire ecosystem, rather than siloed products. This may seem like an unusual place to begin a review, but it feels like Samsung's wireless earbud line have finally achieved truly wireless status, which is an important landmark. As an owner of both previous generations of their earbuds, the Galaxy Buds feel like everything learnt with the previous generations has been applied. Bluetooth connectivity, a little sketchy on previous models, has been improved to the point that in 3 weeks I've experienced no issues whatsoever. Other more subtle improvements have been made, such as a more compact pocket-friendly case, and its ‘push-button open' mechanism (which failed after three weeks on a previous model) has been replaced with a simple foolproof prise-open design. Where they have learnt from issues of earbuds past, they've also understood and retained the strengths of previous generations, such as the touch-sensitive shell that allows you to control your music without having to rummage around for your phone. The design, too, is subtle. While a certain Cupertino-based competitor has a design that is ugly but unmistakably ‘them', Samsung is content to make the Galaxy Buds almost invisible, which for me, is exactly what I'm looking for. Finally, and most importantly, when it comes to audio quality the clarity and depth of tone and bass is fantastic, and again, a further improvement over the already stellar experiences of previous generations. The only drawback is related to the microphone, which falls short of the high bar set by every other aspect of these buds – feedback I've had is the mic quality is ‘fine', but when every other aspect of the Buds is ‘great', it leaves something for Samsung to improve for the Galaxy Buds 2.
