New Galaxy Buds by Samsung [Honest Review] - Wireless Charging, Water Resistant, Touch Pads

  • Published: 16 March 2019
  • All new Samsung Galaxy Buds -
    Wireless charging pad -

    In this video, I review the all new Samsung Galaxy Buds which were released with the Galaxy S10 series. These truly wireless earbuds are water resistant, last 6 hrs (plus 7 after recharged by the case), sound amazing, and pair instantly with the Galaxy S10.

    Can't not look like hearing aids, but originally I was not a fan of air pods either, so I think these will grow on me
    Easy to pair and use, especially with the S10. Still easy with other devices
    There are no buttons anywhere on the buds or the cradle - only the touch pads
    Wish there was volume control (besides the touch and hold option on the galaxy buds)
    Works with Google assistant, Bixby, Cortana, and Siri very easily and you can use the touch pad controls to summon any of them
    My batteries easily last all day
    Major issue with mine - one day they just started buzzing and continued for an hour until I reset them in the app

    Sensors include:
    * Hall
    * Accelerometer
    * Proximity
    * Touch

    Box includes:
    * USB-A to USB-C wire
    * Cradle (with over 250mAh battery)
    * Galaxy Buds (with over 50 mAh batteries)
    * ear tips and wing tip rubber pieces to adjust the fit of these ear buds

    Galaxy Wear App
    * Ambient sound mode
    * Equalizer
    * RTOS updates
    * Find my earbuds
    * Tips, manual, and troubleshooting
    * Touchpad controls
    Phone call quality is decent, but definitely not as good as they claim
    Very comfortable and small - I can easily leave these Galaxy Buds in my ears for hours at a time
    Cradle finish is smooth, but matte enough to not slide out of my pocket
    Wireless charging makes it possible to recharge these from the back of my phone

    My complaints:
    * Buzzing issue was really disappointing for such a premium product
    * Rubber tips make touchpad controls loud and annoying to use
    * Frequent cleaning may be required

    Overall, I like the all new Samsung Galaxy Buds and I will continue to use mine until they start buzzing again, or until I lose them! These are great for traveling and wirelessly making phone calls, listening to music, and staying light and mobile! These also stay in my ears well enough for them to be a viable option while running or working out.

    *Added review point:* these are small enough that everyone around me talks to me without realizing I have earbuds in. Is this a pro that they're tiny, or a con that I need to ask everyone to repeat themselves??

      When the buds die completely, how long does it take to fully charge them from 0-100 being plugged into the wall?

      I say it's a pro. I dont want huge stick out of my ears so this is much better, and I say the ambient sound is very reliable.

            I like that when you were testing the microphone, that you just didn't call your friend and he'll just say: yeah its good/ its not so good, like everyone else😂😂😅

              audio quality from mic has been already improved from new galaxy buds update, but still have bug in sound lagging . touch is very responsive don't need to tap too much hard to hurt your ear just soft touch is ok

                      Nice I got mine 4 days ago and also love. I'm not really a headphone or earphone user. But now that I own these I'm using them for most of the day.

                                When you are activating it by holding the touchpad, you don't have to say the hotword.

                                    If you have to charge them from the phone because you have a long bus ride you are stealing life from the phone and than the mobile phone dies quicker so you are not going to use it.. So no much difference in having the buds to die in the first place

                                      I have a horrible experience with my Galaxy Buds. from day 1 I had problems. High background noise. Losing connection on one bud. Other party cant hear me. After sending them for repair twice nothing much changed other than that I am not losing the connection as often. Apple Airpods, which I chose not to buy since I expected the Buds to be more compatible with my S10+, win hands down.

                                                Very bad microphone
                                                Call quality is very bad
                                                Every body saying I cannot hear you
                                                At the end I have to remove from my ears and use the phone normly
                                                I'm not advising to weast your money
                                                Don't buy it

My buds hold charge but the case hold one and a half day, sometimes stretching to 2 days and i use my buds only 30min per day.or sometings dont use it at all. The case battery seems to die pretty fast even without using

                                                                How long do they take to charge? Got them yesterday, not used them yet, put them directly on my official charger while watching a movie, at the end the LED was still red so I went to sleep. This morning the charger LED is blue (with my phone it turns green when it is fully charged) but the one of the buds' box turned off... I take it and put it back again on the charger... Still red 🤔 ?

Think of Apple AirPods, just better. They drown out the skating rinks music so I can listen to what I want. I also have the iPhone X.
