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.
First I love the color, I got these earbuds because trying to disconnect my Galaxy Buds+ from my iPhone 12 to my Note 20 Ultra whenever I get a phone call was becoming a nuisance. The Buds 2 sound freaking amazing. I read reviews about some people getting ear infections from these headphones and other ear issues. I experienced something totally different. I understand why people feel the Buds+ are better, that's due to the wing tip and I agree. When I paired the Buds 2 with my Note 20 Ultra I was so pleased because I'm very particular on how I want my music to sound. When I took them out I noticed an ear popping feeling like when you're on a plane and I immediately got a headache. I can honestly agree that the ANC really works. I'm guessing the ANC is the reason for the reaction I experienced. I really wanted to like these but I realize after several tries and several headaches, for me the Buds 2 cannot be used with my Note 20 Ultra. BUT, there's a bright side. Although you can't use the Galaxy wearable app on the iPhone for the Buds 2 they work just fine and I don't get any airplane ear pop and no headaches. Because of the sound and the color I decided to keep them. Like some others I too wish there was a wing tip. I've been switching up the ear bud tips to try to get the best fit. And for those who say they didn't get any extra tips, they are in a tiny box wrapped up in the charging cord. I'll show some photos.
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.

Worthy successor to the Galaxy Buds lineup!
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.
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.
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.

Samsung Galaxy Buds 2 reviewThe second-generation Samsung Galaxy Buds 2 are a huge improvement
A:AnswerI don't have an issue with them falling out. I have the buds plus and the buds pro. The buds pro fell out of my ear constantly. These buds2 don't fall out at all. I did the head shake test and I tilted my head to the side and left it there and after a while they can move but they didn't fall out. I also wore them for four hours and no pain unlike the buds pro.
