Is it a Winner or Loser? I'll tell you what I think.

I have been on the search for the ‘perfect’ earbuds for almost a year and because of that, I have bought and returned several sets. I was actually on the verge of buying the Buds Plus+ but decided to buy the Galaxy Buds Live on launch day. My requirements for a ‘perfect’ earbud are: each bud can wor...

Samsung Galaxy Buds Live Truly Wireless

The Samsung Galaxy Buds Live Truly Wireless are unusually-designed noise cancelling truly wireless earbuds. They have a distinctive look, feel surprisingly stable and comfortable, and have slightly warm and well-balanced sound profile that should suit a broad range of audio content. Despite their AN...

An unconventional design turns out to be a winner

Galaxy Buds Live review: Finally, something different

They don't seem to be paired simultaneously to two devices at once. You can also pair these to windows, computers using microsoft, swift pair, the galaxy buds plus did a good job of reducing background noise when you're making voice calls - and these do too, there are two microphones on the outside of each butt and one on the inside and While they don't completely muffle sound around you, they do a good job of tamping down ambient noise and also picking up your voice. People i spoke with said they could hear me well

Now, with them in hand (or ears, rather), I have some serious concerns. I wanted these for the use of listening to music and equally, if not more impo...

Galaxy Buds Live review: good beans, no compromises

, So it responds as well as Bixby can respond. ( upbeat music ), So the Galaxy Buds, Live. They're $ 169 beans with great audio quality, a solid mic all packed into a surprisingly functional small form factor

they are great once you get used to them

before i purchased, i read the reviews and it seems like the only complaint was they tend to hurt after a while. after receiving them, the first thing i noticed was the quality, they seem solid and well-built, i put them in and the sound quality was excellent, i did have to fumble with them and put ...

Do the Live up to the Hype?

Let me tell you, I was ready to get on here and give these a 1 star rating, but then I said, "I'm being too hasty, maybe I should try pushing them deeper in my ears" and surely enough, that worked. Initial impressions: Clarity: excellent for music, and when testing a call to a friend he said I "soun...
