    I've had my galaxy buds 2 for abt a week and I'm enjoying them. They fit perfectly in my ears and I dont have to constantly adjust them. Coming from the Samsung wired headphones, the sound quality is impressive. The ambient sound and anc features are great. I would definitely recommend these.

    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.

    Worthy successor to the Galaxy Buds lineup!

    |
    Posted .

    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.

    Rated 4 out of 5 stars

    Good sound, excellent battery, average ANC

    Posted .

    When it comes to true wireless earbuds I've come to the conclusion that you can't have everything. That being said these are still $150. The sound quality is more than serviceable, though I still think the pixel buds sound better. Enjoy good base with well-defined tops and present mids. They're extremely small and light, which is wonderful. Amazingly, the battery lasts for hours even with ANC on. ANC is good and seems to dynamically adjust itself based on your environment. The case is ridiculously compact and fun to fiddle with. You can even connect the buds to a new device without disconnecting the previously connected device, a wonderful luxury. I knocked a star off because phone calls sound way too loud even when turned down all the way. It seems people with Samsung phones don't have the same issue. It's unfortunate because the microphones are wonderful and everyone says I sound great.

    Perfect for dog groomers

    Owned for less than 1 week when reviewed.

    I spent a lot of time researching and reading reviews between the buds 2 and buds pro. I ended up getting the buds 2 because they are smaller and lighter than the pros and being a woman, my ears are small so I figured they would be a better fit. I wanted to get these for my job. Im a dog groomer for corporate and their music choice sucks. These buds are awesome. I wear them for 6-8 hours a day, they stay in place, and they dont hurt my ears at all. I love the option to change from noise cancel to ambient sound so I can hear everything when i need to and shut out everything else when i dont want to hear it. I also lovr the purple because it matches my ear piecing jewelry perfectly. If youre hesitant to buy, you get a 15 day return policy so if they dont work for you, you can return and try a different model.

    Almost Perfect Except...

    These are the second set of earbuds I have ever purchased. I like that they connect instantly to whatever you are listening to (tablet or cellphone). The only reason I'm giving it a 4 star rating is that they don't feel very secure in my ears. I have tried all the ear tips to get the best fit. My previous set of earbuds (EOZ air) had wings that clipped onto your ears and this maybe why I don't feel comfortable that they will stay in my ears. It's the only gripe I have. I find that I am constantly pressing the buds into my ear.

    Great buds that work as advertised

    These work great! The sound is good, on par with my other, wired ear buds. I haven't done any serious comparison test but I've spent a good amount of time rocking out and I haven't noticed any deficiencies. The transparency mode is best if not listening at higher volumes. The app allows you to adjust the level and the highest is most effective for me and doesn't seem to detract from what I'm listening to. The noise canceling works just fine. It is helped by a good seal. They don't inspire confidence that they wont fall out, but it is my first pair of wireless buds so I have no point of reference. They were originally purchased for my son and he had one fall into the sink and it got wet but it dried out fine. He gifted them back to me after a couple of days, too much pressure tonkeep them safe! The battery life is good, I'm not using them constantly but haven't had any issues. Call quality has been good also. Use the widget to toggle the touch on and off and switch between noise canceling. It saves frustration when all you want to do is make sure they're in good.

    First galaxy buds and the best ones

    |
    Posted .

    I was opting between airpods pro and buds 2. I am a Samsung user but really liked my wife's airpods pro. I tried it with my note and I really liked it. I have been waiting for samsung to release airpods pro competitor for a long time now. I feel like buds 2 is a very worthy successor and with akg sound. I would still give a good shout out to airpods pro in terms of noice cancelation. But overall when I tried buds 2 with their latest update, it has way more customizations and the tap feature even though works some times and doesn't I liked it. When I comes to fit, they are definitely not for workout, as they are good to listen to music, calls. Seamlessly connect to other devices without turning on the connection, double tB, triple tap, hold and turn off noice cancelling or increase or decrease volume. Overall I would recommend these buds 2 which are by far the best buds I have seen in samsung line up. Also the price is as best as it gets for the product and features it has.

    Not bad but not great

    |
    Posted .

    The sound quality 7/10 not bad but also not great the bass is lacking a little if you love bass these are not for you but if you like little bass and more mids and highs these are a good choice Volume 5/10 it does not get loud unless you only listen to music at 50% Volume for awhile and then get these also the louder you the less bass you get keep that in mind. Noise canceling 3/10 everyone says the noise canceling is good these earbuds have very little to none you get the noice isolation mostly i tried testing these and i hear literally no difference at all i think samsung got noice isolation and noise canceling mixed up. Battery 4/10 5 hours is not good and it's not even the full 5 hours i got personally 4 hours 40 minutes it's just awful i have a 10 dollar pair of earbuds that last longer. Comfort 9.5/10 you honestly don't even know you're wearing them that's how comfortable they are if Comfort is your thing i would say get these. Case 9.5/10 it's small and i like how it looks and feels and it has 20 hours of battery not bad you really don't need alot more battery i would say if it had 30 hours that would be perfect and kept the same size also it's USB-C obviously pretty much everything is now days App 7/10 i do have a Samsung phone so it could be different for others but it's simple and vanilla meaning it's nothing special it does what it needs to it's ok Build 8/10 the build quality isn't bad and it's not great just good also it's sweat resistant so do take a shower with these on Overall 7/10 it's not bad i would wait until a sell happen or if you have 50 extra dollars just get the galaxy buds pro or something else completely.

    The fit is good, the sound is great, and I love using it with the ambience setting on so I'm not shouting at people.... However, the person on the other line says that I sound like I'm either underwater or I'm eating the mic, so I'm not sure why the mic is so bad. Hopefully they eventually roll out an update that will fix that. For the most part I don't really talk on the phone with this, so I guess it's not that big of a deal, however it's pretty crippling when I do get a call.

    Just not the Right Pair for me.

    Owned for 1 month when reviewed.

    I wanted to loveeee this product so much. My partner and I recently switched from team Apple to team Samsung and I ordered these to match my galaxy ultra. I loved the look and the style of them. However the fit for my left ear was a NO. I was not aware how much of a difference my ears are until I purchased these.(didn't have this issue with previously owning Apple Airpods.) Even after trying the different sized ear pieces. I just couldn't get a comfortable fit. And also wasn't a fan of how I had to use the fit check option in the app to ensure I had them in correctly. Or else the person on the phone would say I sounded muffled. Any ways the way they felt comfortable in my ear were the incorrect way. I returned after a month of trying them. The hearing for me and music volume and quality is a 5 star. Worth the price. Yes. But my ears aren't it for these. I bought the Samsung + buds and they're a better fit. Happy Samsung has so many options lol.

    Keep falling out.

    Owned for less than 1 week when reviewed.

    The right one keeps falling out of my ear. I even used the smallest fitting. The other issue that I have been having is when I talk on the phone the signal bounces from ear to ear. I have been having the same issue with other earbuds. I have also been having issues with the bluetooth on my phone connecting with my car. It is possible that the bluetooth issues are coming from my phone.

    Good but not great

    Posted .

    These buds sounds great but ultimately would not stay in my ears as well as other flagship models when I'm running or working out. They slowly loosen with sweat and fall out. I've tried these, the Buds Pro, Sony xm4's, Jabra elite 75ts and 85t's, and lastly the Anker Soundcore Liberty 3 Pros that just released. Do yourself a favor and get the new Anker's. They are hands down the all-around winner besting all of these other flagship buds in sound and fit - and are second in ANC only to the Sony's but are much cheaper... better luck next year, Samsung!

    Great but buds falls out quickly, tip don’t fit my special small ears I’ve tried them all that came included other than that the buds works as intended nice little software in Conjunction with my s21 ultra would be perfect if included universal tips that memorize ears shape to prevent fall outs. I had to purchase 3rd party ear tips And since then they work great.

    Sounds great and updates are pretty frequent to help better the product. Only downside is that they tend to slip out and need readjusting now and then when active. Might be something that only pertains to my ear size. Also the size of the earbuds are a pain to put in as well. But again that might be something that’ll pertain to me and maybe a small group.

    Works seamlessly with Samsung Galaxy

    I thought that these ear buds were great to seamlessly work with my fathers Samsung Galaxy. Due to it being from the same ecosystem the phone quickly identified the new Bluetooth ear bud and it was a breeze to install. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a no frills ear bud to accompany your Samsung phones.

    Wow. I love the headphones. They fit great. They sound great. They pair super easy with a galaxy phone. Even my old s8. The ambient noise feature is really cool. I wear them at work and listen to podcasts or music with the ambient mode on and the volume at about 40% and i can hear just about everything. And a quick tap on either bud pauses playback id you want to hear better. Cant say anything bad about them really.
