    The Samsung Galaxy Buds2 are wireless earbuds that promise an exceptional listening experience. They come in four vibrant colors: Graphite, Lavender, Olive, and White. The compact design makes them comfortable to wear for extended periods, and they fit snugly in your ears without any discomfort. The audio quality of the Buds2 is excellent, with deep, rich bass and crystal-clear highs. The Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) feature effectively blocks out external noise, allowing you to focus on your music or calls without any distractions. The Ambient Sound feature enables you to hear your surroundings when necessary, such as when you're in a busy area. The Buds2 also feature touch controls that make it easy to navigate through music and answer calls without needing to take out your phone. The battery life is impressive, with up to 5 hours of playback time on a single charge and up to 20 hours with the charging case. The Buds2 also support fast charging, with just 5 minutes of charging providing up to an hour of playback time. One drawback of the Buds2 is the lack of wireless charging capability, which is available on some other earbud models. Some users also reported that the fit was not ideal for their ear shape, leading to discomfort after extended use. Overall, the Samsung Galaxy Buds2 are an excellent choice for those looking for wireless earbuds with great audio quality, reliable noise cancellation, and a long battery life. The touch controls and compact design make them convenient to use, and they come in a range of attractive colors to suit your style.

    These were Christmas gift for our child and she's 12 dayfit perfectly in her ear. Because they came with different sizes for the ear piece, she says they're comfortable, they are definitely noise. Canceling because if you think your team or your young teen or young kids didn't listen before they definitely aint gonna listen to you now because she can't hear a word I'm saying with these things in her ears. So the noise-canceling is one point love them the purple is so pretty. I love the fact that you can get these different colors. The cases are awesome. She actually likes these better than the other name brand that we had owned previously they charge. So fast and they keep a charge for a long. of time. These are definite plus 4 our household. As my kid travels for sports ten out of ten

    The sound is perfect. Essentially the same quality as my SteelSeries Arctis Pro, which is considerably more expensive than this, and a headset. The connection works great. Auto stops playback when you take them out of the ear, and ive only had maybe 1 or 2 cut-outs ever in my daily use. They fit great in the ear. Multiple tips you can use, and very snug. They wont fall out, even during running or heavy workouts. Sometimes ill sleep with them on and theyll fall out, but I do toss and turn, so YMMV. The battery is excellent - lasts all night, and most of the day. You can also bring the case with you and it will last 20ish hours, it will hold a charge. The active noise cancelling, as well as the ambient sound boost work good. But i havent used them much, because even with the ambient boost i cant clearly hear when people are talking to me. Both modes will also wreck battery life - a reduction by half or so. The in-app controls work alright and arent frustrating, I only wish it held the EQ setting + ANC setting on an onboard memory or something for when you use it on a non-samsung device, other than that; cant complain. Great for the price, would recommend any day.

    The Airpods of Samsung, but better.

    PROs -Great connection with Samsung Devices, including switching between them automatically (can turn off this feature in the Samsung Settings App if, for example, your kid's tablets are connected to your Samsung Profile. -Audio Quality for average users (unsure of Audiophile desires, but I love mine) -Battery, especially wireless charging and LED indicators to know when charging CONS -Occasional Fit problems. I think I have average male ears and am using standard medium tips. Occasionally have to adjust, especially if talking. If I focus on twisting them in when I put them in my wear, they pass the shake test, but if these are going to be running exclusive headphones, consider something with a hook. Case is a nice small square that charges wirelessly. I get plenty of charge out of it, and with wireless charging from Amazon, I can just drop it on the pad at the end of the day. I once forgot that I'd been wearing them through a day of air travel for about 6 hours when it started to warn me that it was starting to run low on battery, but I had been pretty comfortable up to that point. It has some extra features you can enable with the Galaxy Wearable app that are pretty useful like changing hear through or noise canceling (ANC works great, Hear-Through is enough to know someone is trying to get your attention at least, if not making conversations easy). A few complaints, the pause/play sometimes gets funky with the tap and I need to pull my phone out, but never when I haven't been messing with a bunch of apps. Running with these for your music wont disappoint and I think the hear-through is great for the safety part of running outside or in a gym where you don't want to completely shut everything out.

    Lavender Color, Great Sound, Sold!

    First I love the color, I got these earbuds because trying to disconnect my Galaxy Buds+ from my iPhone 12 to my Note 20 Ultra whenever I get a phone call was becoming a nuisance. The Buds 2 sound freaking amazing. I read reviews about some people getting ear infections from these headphones and other ear issues. I experienced something totally different. I understand why people feel the Buds+ are better, that's due to the wing tip and I agree. When I paired the Buds 2 with my Note 20 Ultra I was so pleased because I'm very particular on how I want my music to sound. When I took them out I noticed an ear popping feeling like when you're on a plane and I immediately got a headache. I can honestly agree that the ANC really works. I'm guessing the ANC is the reason for the reaction I experienced. I really wanted to like these but I realize after several tries and several headaches, for me the Buds 2 cannot be used with my Note 20 Ultra. BUT, there's a bright side. Although you can't use the Galaxy wearable app on the iPhone for the Buds 2 they work just fine and I don't get any airplane ear pop and no headaches. Because of the sound and the color I decided to keep them. Like some others I too wish there was a wing tip. I've been switching up the ear bud tips to try to get the best fit. And for those who say they didn't get any extra tips, they are in a tiny box wrapped up in the charging cord. I'll show some photos.

    I have trouble with a lot of earbuds not fitting my smaller ears, whether the issue is that they fall out of my ears and/or hurt them. These do neither!! They do fill all the limited space my ears give them for sure, but I really expected they might be way too bulky and uncomfortable so this is a very happy surprise. They work great with my Samsung devices of course, the only sad part of this story is that my MacBook hates them and balances all the sound to the left bud, but that's completely Apple's fault. And this is coming from someone who's exclusively used the first gen AirPods for years because they were the only thing that fit my ears comfortably. Usually anything that forms a seal in the ear canal doesn't work for me. But these get an 11/10 for Samsung :)

    previously owned a pair of the bud2 pros and these are pretty much on par in terms of sound quality, with the pros having a Matte case and a higher water resistance rating, while these will have a glossy white case with the same interior color as the buds. these ear buds will still give a dynamic and punchy listening experience. the battery life on these are really good, the case only requires a charge once or twice a day with heavy use, and the earbuds lasted a good 6-7 hours of none stop play time before requiring a charge.

    I have been using the Buds2 for more than 6 months and I have been quite pleased with them. Of course they pair seemlessly with my Galaxy S22. But I also use them with my Macbook Pro M1 and my iPad pro. What I really appreciate is the active noise cancelling function. It really blocks out much of the outside noise! Though I wish the battery life was a little bit better, the case provides extra power and it chargea the buds quite fast. Highly recommend to anyone, android or apple user, who need a reliable set of wireless earphones.

    I purchased these for my husband for Christmas and he was thrilled. Things that stood out to him were the noise canceling option, and the fact that they are charged in the little case. He loves them! He was so happy that I got the high-quality ones versus the not so good ones. So I scored big with this gift!
