These Galaxy Buds have a pretty good reputation, this is one thing that lead me to buy them. Oh, and another reason is because my old IFrogz ear buds became outdated. As soon as I bought them, I get to my vehicle and I'm ripping the package from the box. Yea, that's how badly I couldn't wait to try them out. As soon as I open the Galaxy Buds case my Note 20 Ultra says, "A new device is detected. This device's information will be synced with the SmartThings server so you can connect easily in the future. Would you like to pair the device?" My reaction was priceless, "How do you even know I had new ear buds?" Yea, I know. Don't say it. #SLOW
Great update and yes update to the whole Galaxy Buds lineup - do they sound as good as the Buds Pro? No! But they are 90% there. The comfort, fitment, features it's there. I'm not worried about the Buds firmware or updates as Samsung is very good at future firmware updates and fixes. Oh, and I set these up on a Galaxy Tab, updated the firmware ... then I connected them to my iPhone 12 Pro as this is what I use. Yes an iOS user who enjoys other earbuds other than the Walled Garden of Apple. I am enjoying these so far and will update after some use with them.
Headphones have been reliable, i've dropped them like 6 times while they were in the case and they still work!!! even on concrete! I see no significant scratches or fractures on the earbuds, they are truly durable, ordered them for one day deliver and they got here on time and the packaging was splendid and of qualilty.

Better than my airpods gen2
Owned for 2 months when reviewed.
This buds sound better than my airpods and has more features than my airpods.
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 thought these were supposed to be excellent earbuds but honestly my experience with them arent good at all while they do remaine in your ear sometimes you have the feeling if them falling out and when you push them in they shut off. I have had conversations on the phone and the other party could barely hear me or they just cut off and yes they were charged. At this point i dont know what would be the best ones to get.
These have a great transparency mode that’s adjustable, to we’re if you turn it up it like amplifies every thing around you which is perfect if you have kids and you want to be able to hear them , the anc is ok not bad . Can’t really comment on the battery life being I don’t use ear buds so long to we’re they have died , now when I call people they say I sound like I’m far away , but they sound clear . The audio quality is really good for a pair of 130 dollar headphones good separation very good buy . And these maybe the most comfortable ear buds I’ve ever tried there so light you forget there in your ear . Now if you have and iPhone you have to kinda set them up on and android devices to you get them they way you want them but they connect fine . I bought these and a pair of the jabra pros the jabra definitely sound better and have buttons instead of touch sensitive but the anc sucks on them but it’s clear for people you are calling and the transparency mode is not quite as good and the buds 2 are more comfortable so you kinda have to pick your poison but there app is great very adjustable and they are easy to connect on apple or android

Samsung Galaxy Buds 2 reviewThe second-generation Samsung Galaxy Buds 2 are a huge improvement
A:AnswerI don't have an issue with them falling out. I have the buds plus and the buds pro. The buds pro fell out of my ear constantly. These buds2 don't fall out at all. I did the head shake test and I tilted my head to the side and left it there and after a while they can move but they didn't fall out. I also wore them for four hours and no pain unlike the buds pro.
A:AnswerTo be honest with they will stay in your ears or in my ears they stay in very well if you have small or medium size ears if you have big ears I recommend using the big ear pieces this way they fit in nice and snuggle with you this will make your experience more comfortable and enjoyable for me though I have medium size ears but I still use the biggest ear pieces to make sure they stay in and well they do I can run climb and do extreme exercises at my plant fitness gym by myself or with friends and they will never fall out off my ears also the battery on them last all day for me just listening to music none stop from the time I wake up around 9am and get home after doing other things around ten pm what I sometimes do is put my ear buds in the case for 20 30 minutes when I'm not using them or talking to someone and then with in that small time the battery life can spike back up on them from 5 percent to 60 percent or even 80 percent so I never really miss out on anything also there great for gaming on my phone or b tablet or connecting it up with my galaxy 4 46mm watch which I love by the way you should all get this watch especially if you have YouTube premium then that's all you will need for your music listening experience also these ear buds are great for hbo max YouTube TV live hulu showtime prime video and more
A:AnswerHi Brandi. Thank you for bringing this to our attention. I appreciate your taking the time to raise this inquiry regarding the Samsung - Galaxy Buds2. Yes, this is compatible with any device with a BlueTooth connection. But to maximize the full potential of the device, you would need to have the Samsung wearable app, which you may or may not be able to install on your phone. ^Charles
