Samsung Galaxy Buds Live review: Unique design, poor execution

 

Samsung's latest true wireless earbuds have a unique “open type” design that will keep you from cramming them in your ears. While that does make them a bit more comfortable, you do have to sacrifice sound quality and the effectiveness of ANC. There are...

Always-on Bixby ; Customizable touch controls ; Wireless charging case ; iOS compatibility

Subpar sound quality (especially at high volumes) ; ANC disappoints ; Battery life suffers with the most attractive features ; Fit takes some getting used to

Samsung Galaxy Buds Live review: cool beans

 

Turns out, making bean-shaped earbuds was a good idea.

Bold, unconventional design ; Lengthy battery life ; Powerful, balanced sound

Noise cancellation isn’t good for much ; Might not fit the smallest ears ; Occasional signal interference

An unconventional design turns out to be a winner

Samsung Galaxy Buds Live Preview

 

Design doesn't plug up your ears ; Solid battery life and Bluetooth range

Poor noise cancellation ; Odd fit ; Bixby often gets confused

Samsung's bean-shaped, wire-free Galaxy Buds Live earphones are high on innovation, but fall short on noise cancellation.

Samsung Galaxy Buds Live review

 

A few stops short of perfection

Balanced, spacious audio quality ; Extra-long battery life ; Fun, eye-catching design ; Useful features

Weak active noise cancelling ; Design can be uncomfortable on smaller ears

The Samsung Galaxy Buds Live offers an avant-garde design, spacious soundscape and extremely long battery life, but the ANC needs work.

Samsung Galaxy Buds Live review

 

With the Galaxy Buds Live, Samsung promises a stylish and ergonomic design for comfortable all-day usage along with a premium audio experience. But do the Korean giant's new truly wireless earbuds live up to those promises? The answer is "yes". Тhe...

Impressive sound quality and bass; Good active noise cancellation; Wireless charging case; Good battery life

A bit finicky to place in and take out of ears

Samsung Galaxy Buds Live review

 

The Samsung Galaxy Buds Live offer great sound quality and battery life for the price, but those seeking true ANC earbuds should look elsewhere.

While they’re held back by a few quirks, the Samsung Galaxy Buds Live are an impressive pair of wireless earbuds that make a great alternative to Apple’s base $159 AirPods and Google’s $179 Pixel Buds 2 for those with Galaxy phones. Just don’t expect...

Samsung Galaxy Buds Live Review: The Beans Got Beats

 

Samsung is no stranger when it comes to making true wireless earbuds, having released its first pair—the original Gear IconX—back in 2016 (nearly six months before AirPods were even a thing). But with the new $170 Galaxy Buds Live, Samsung decided to...

Great price, strong battery life, small, low profile design, handy touch controls, good sound quality, compact charging case with Qi support

Samsung Galaxy Buds Live review

 

Samsung's most ambitious wireless earbuds to date

Comfortable, clever design ; Impressive bass weight ; Clear and open presentation

Beaten for timing and dynamics ; Charging case issues ; Some bugs in the system

Samsung’s ambitious wireless earbuds boast a neat design and tick a lot of boxes, but the sound quality and software need to be better

Samsung Galaxy Buds Live review

 

Samsung's bean-shaped true wireless earbuds have a lot going for them but a few major problems keep them from competing with class leaders like the Sony WF-1000XM3.

Surprisingly good fit Extra helping of bass Combined 20-hour battery life

Middling sound quality Poor noise cancellation Low IP rating

The Samsung Galaxy Buds Live are good – but not great – true wireless earbuds. They have a number of neat features and offer a combined 28-hour battery life, but their sound isn’t amazing, and the noise cancellation has a lot of room for improvement....

Hands on: Samsung Galaxy Buds Live review

 

The Galaxy Buds Live are Samsung's latest true wireless earbuds.

Great-sounding Packed with features Active noise cancellation

Low IP rating

The Samsung Galaxy Buds Live deliver a well-balanced sound and active noise cancellation, wrapped up in a unique bean-shaped design that we haven't seen in a pair of true wireless earbuds before.
