Boast a case that doubles as a wireless charger.
Use your always-on voice assistant to order coffee, send a message, or search music hands-free.
* Features, including active noise cancellation, are enabled through Bluetooth connection, the Galaxy Wearable app on Android available through Google Play Store, and the Galaxy Buds app on iOS devices available through App Store.
Rock solid, works really well with Android (ofc), iPhone and my Windows 10 desktop. Would be nice to have mute as one of the touch options (couldn't find it in the app) but not a huge issue. Would just be nice to mute calls in teams on my phone using the touch controls. That's really just nit-picky though. These things are the *first* buds (including apple standard, various jbl/jabra and beats buds) that don't hurt my ears after using it for hours. It doesn't make a solid close so you can still hear outside noises and bass can be a little muted at times but you don't get these kind of buds for the bass.
The biggest selling points of these? Since buying these refurbs about a month or so ago, they've been through a good 25-30 hours of Microsoft Teams meetings on various devices. I love these things and considering purchasing a second pair for my wife.
* Perfect fit for my medium-small odd shaped ears
* Stays in despite me moving around or reaching above me.
* Great distance from my phone/tablet/desktop without issues
* Easy to setup and use in Android, iOS/iPadOS & Windows 10 (likley others)
* Qi Charging and USB-C on the case is a great touch
* Touch controls work great for me, just take a little to get used to.
* You can use the left bud, right bud or both buds as needed - so many of the ones I had previously had problems with this (jabra).
* No microphone mute feature on the touch controls (unless i'm missing it) - would be nice for meetings
* Don't make a solid ear seal so other noise can bleed in, doesn't bug me though.
* Not ip-rated for waterproof, not recommended for those working out building a huge amount of sweat or dropping in water. Fine by me though.
I was worried about getting earbuds through the Geek Squad Certified program but these came looking brand new and the battery lives up to it's specs. Quite happy with these!
Great service buds. The fitting can be a bit wonky and might take some getting used to. I'm not sure if they wouldn't say in for any vigorous activity but once you get a feel for them you forget they're in. The noise cancelling is only so-so as the speaker design doesn't allow for a snug fit in the ear canal. I would buy again at the return price of $100 but I wouldnt spend more and certainly not the list $160.
I will say the packaging on these was disgusting, sticky stuff all over the outside, looked like I was buying a item from a ebay seller not a respectable company, with all the stickers and everything on it, it's also covid and these clearly weren't cleaned unless the geek squad agent was eating a bag of lays classic chips. Greasy all over, I considered returning if these don't hold to factory specs. I cleaned them with alcohol upon receipt due to greasyness, I didn't feel good about this purchase and I do a lot of business here normally.
Great sound and settings after downloading the Samsung buds live app. I prefer them on my android but can use them on my iphone as well. Has some issues with iphone for example, When I receive a call i have to disconnect them from my iPhone’s Bluetooth then reconnect to them to get the volume from FaceTime. They also start hurting your ears after having the buds in your ears for long periods of time. Not for people with small ears.
I have owned many of ear buds but the features these have out do them all. The way I lost my last pair was I fell asleep with them in and one fell out and the dog chewed it up. Lol not with these they stay put.
I bought these geek squad refurbished, and was appalled by how much ear wax and what I suspect to be dandruff was all over them when I received them. I would not recommend buying these refurbished.
Excellent sound on the galaxy live buds. Upgraded sound from the original galaxy buds I had. Great bass, tremble, clear voices, good mids. Love the app accessibility, and live active noise cancellation, comfortable, forget I have them in my ears, where as the first pair of buds I had my ears always ached after being placed in ear for some time. Still getting that snug Samsung fit, no worries about my new buds flying out my ears, they fit just as tight as the others which is great. The box also came with an extra ear adapter piece if needed for size, and a charging wire. The case feels more durable and sleek, also has the option to be wireless charged from a phone that has that feature wireless power share. I love the new bean shaped galaxy buds live, and would recommend buying them.
If your upgrading from the galaxy buds don't expect same quality at least in noise canceling as well as noise leakage. The sound is great and I love the fit. If you aren't getting a good fit try to the other tips in the box. Overall imo galaxy buds are better but these aren't bad.

A:AnswerIt follows the contour of your ear cavity and holds itself on the fold of the ear rather than the suction effect of the other/traditional type of cushion. This live feels like nothing on and could make you feel insecure of them falling off. I am satisfied and do recommend this.
