Samsung Galaxy Buds review: surprisingly excellent true wireless buds


With six hours of battery life, an extremely comfortable fit, sweatproofing, and a very palatable price tag, Samsung's Galaxy Buds represent a great value.

Six hours of battery life ; Sweatproof ; Light, comfortable fit ; Wireless charging case

Only 7 hours of battery in case

Samsung’s Galaxy Buds are the true wireless earbuds we’ve been waiting for

Samsung Galaxy Buds review: A waste of good design


Unlike Samsung's previous true wireless earbuds, the Galaxy Buds are tailor-made for its recent smartphones. To employ key features like volume control, you have to sacrifice other handy tools, and even then, the touch controls are frustrating. These...

Reliable connectivity ; Solid battery life ; PowerShare charging with the S10 line

Average audio quality ; Frustrating touch controls ; On-board volume control requires sacrificing other features ; Disappointing microphone quality for calls

Samsung Galaxy Buds review: An Android-friendly AirPods alternative


There are other truly wireless earphones that sound better, but the next iteration of Samsung's totally wireless earphones are a definite improvement over their predecessors.

These compact, lightweight noise-isolating true wireless earphones should fit most ears securely. They sound decent, battery life is good (around 6 hours at moderate volume levels) and their compact charging case offers USB-C wired and wireless charging.

Bass isn't all that deep; charging case only delivers a little more than one full charge; certain features only work with Android phones.

Although their sound quality doesn't wow, the Galaxy Buds are certainly worth considering if you're a Samsung Galaxy or Android phone owner.

Samsung Galaxy Buds


Samsung's wire-free Galaxy Buds earphones deliver fantastic audio performance for a reasonable price, which is enough to overcome some dubious marketing claims.

Excellent audio performance with rich, full bass and bright, well-defined highs. Easy to operate. Solid mic intelligibility in quiet spaces.

Poor mic intelligibility in loud scenarios. So-so charging case battery life. Not waterproof.

Sonically, Samsung's Galaxy Buds are excellent—AKG does a good job of balancing rich, full bass with clarity in the highs. As for ease of use, the Galaxy Buds are also winners, with on-ear controls that work as advertised, and not just with Galaxy...

Samsung Galaxy Buds review: imperfectly acceptable


Getting as many things right as they get wrong.

Light, discreet, comfortable design ; Legit six-hour battery life ; Tiny case with wireless charging ; Better sound isolation than Apple’s AirPods

Bass-shy sound doesn’t rise above average ; Flaky Bluetooth connectivity ; Poor microphone performance

Samsung’s Galaxy Buds are probably the best freebie that a company has ever bundled with a smartphone preorder, but they fall significantly short of claiming the title of best true wireless earbuds. Great for Samsung owners, but everyone else should...

Samsung Galaxy Buds Review: AirPods lessons learned


Samsung is no stranger to wireless earbuds, but the Galaxy Buds' predecessors have never quite aced the experience in the way that this new model does. Arriving alongside the Samsung Galaxy S10, the Galaxy Buds promise the convenience of AirPods but...

Secure, comfortable fit with a range of eartip sizes ; Audio quality is solid ; Plenty of customization options in companion app ; Battery life is great ; Wireless charging case is convenient

Limited recharge from case alone ; iPhone experience is less comprehensive

Samsung Galaxy Buds Review


Over the past couple of weeks, we've been testing Samsung's third-generation truly wireless earbuds – the Samsung Galaxy Buds. Are they Samsung's best attempt so far, and should they be considered over notable alternatives from well-established audio...

Impressive range and strong wireless connection; Light and generally comfortable; Good battery life; Wireless charging battery case is convenient

Touch controls are fiddly; Ambient Sound feature leaves room for improvement; No high water-resistance rating

Samsung Galaxy Buds Review: Perfect for Galaxy S10 users


It's an odd thing, reviewing something like the Samsung Galaxy Buds — like the Google Pixel Buds and Apple AirPods, they're meant more as an upsell at checkout counters, virtual and physical, than anything that's supposed It's an odd thing, reviewing...

Lightweight ; Secure and comfortable fit ; Solid battery life ; Good audio quality for the size ; Easy pairing with Galaxy S10 and Fold phones ; Reliable touch controls ; Using S10 phones as wireless charging pad is convenient and helps make up for...

Not much battery capacity in charging case ; Background noise feature doesn’t work very well

If you have a Samsung Galaxy phone, just get them
