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.

                    Honestly they should let these buds cost 40 dallors not 130 honestly I think they like 40 or 60 dallor profit so no one get cheated or lied to by these so call true wireless

                          No amount of "features" excuses Samsung for the poor call quality. I make my friend remove his Buds when he calls me.

                            "They look a little like hearing aids..."

                            lol do you even know where hearing aids go? 80% go behind the ear so. they don't look like aids.

                            but - as a hearing aid wearer who can't wear both headphones and aids, is the ambient sound feature on these a good option for someone like me?

                                      I'm returning the buds for its poor sound quality,which is something I didn't expect for a Samsung product at this price range. No matter how much I tweaked settings I just couldn't appreciate music and videos with the buds so I switched back to headsets that sounded even better.

                                          I tend to fall asleep when I’m on cars or planes when traveling long distance. Do we have to worry about them falling off when sleeping?

                                            I would say, not really. As long as you use the right rubber fittings for your ears.

                                          Question. So if taking a bud out of your ear turns the bud off... can you double your battery life by listening to only one at a time?!?+?

                                            Answer. Yep, that would totally work. Each has an individual battery and they operate independently. One can die or be in another state and the other works

                                                        I have to say since receiving mine, I have had no complaints, Charges wirelessly too, which is great. The audio quality has improved. it is better spaced than the iconx, which came across as flat no matter how much you fiddled with the equalizers.They were also heavy! The problem with synthetic audio is simply put, its overprocessed, compressed and then reprocessed so that you can hear it again. Sound quality still is not super clean like a decent pair of wired, but each generation gets better. They are much lighter too, which is nice bonus. I hated all the extra crap on the iconx, accidentally bringing up workout mode etc. I like headphones to be headphones, for now these will do. The only issue I find with any "quality" bluetooth headphones, it causes audio fatigue after about an hour (for me). The audio becomes irritating as time goes on and I eventually switch back to my sony wired ones. The galaxy buds are definately acoustically better than the 2018 iconx.

                                                            Ok i had almost the same problem with mine too. I got my Buds today September 2nd and while i was test running it suddenly my left ear buds stopped and started buzzing it was so scary I thought i broke it. So i put it back and started searching Online for help but I cannot reset it cause i use an iphone. I didn’t noticed when the buzzing stopped but thank God it did & it’s working fine.

                                                              Your complaint about tapping is funny considering most good expensive ear buds have tap feature lol same would happen then ? Your actually the first person that has said that, normally In all the reviews I have watched it's the push button ones that jam In your ear due to actual physical push. I have the galaxy buds and really only light tap them to control functions. I think your being very nit picky to be honest. I also have the Air Pods so if your comparing the Galaxy Buds to them then that is a whole different issue as they sit outside your ear canal, can't really compare as Air Pods have that unique feature that no other ear buds have. I find the Air Pods gr8 when I get sick of putting things I my ear canal ear fatigue etc but the Air Pods fall out of you ear way to easy, & look ridiculous in ear 🤣 and have you tried putting on and taking of a sweat shirt 99 % for sure they will fall out of your ear, something that the Galaxy Buds or any In ear canal buds dont do 😉 Great review none the less.
