Samsung Galaxy Buds Review | Trusted Reviews

 

The Galaxy Buds have a better sound and fit than the AirPods, but look elsewhere and you will find better performers available for a similar price

Great fit ; Discrete design ; PowerShare will be useful for Galaxy S10 owners

Better sounding sets available ; Prone to drop-outs

The Galaxy Buds offer better sound and fit than the AirPods, but if you're willing to look elsewhere then there are better performers available for a similar price

Samsung Galaxy Buds review

 

Samsung's all-new AirPod rivals are £20 cheaper and come in colours other than white but they are not a must-buy

Amazing Earbud Battery Life ; Wireless Charging Battery Case ; Comfortable Earbud Design ; Selection Of Wingtips, Earbuds To Fit Your Ear

Audio Quality Isn't All That ; Some Features Limited To Android Phones

Samsung Galaxy Buds review: Keeping it simple

 

For its latest wire-free earphone creation, Samsung has stripped back the features and focused on what's really important. Has it worked?

Small and comfortable to wear ; Case has wireless charging ; Sound quality is decent for the money ; Battery life for the category is great

Touch-sensitive panels take some getting used to ; Only one extra charge from the case (not two) ; Bluetooth connectivity isn't always reliable

By stripping away the fitness-tracking smarts and focusing on the key features - namely battery life and comfort - Samsung has made a genuine AirPod contender at an even lower price point. Problem is the wireless connectivity isn't perfect.

Samsung Galaxy Buds review

 

Can Samsung's AirPod rivals steal the Bluetooth bud crown?

Comfy, flexible, noise-isolating design ; Ambient Sound mode is awesome ; Wireless charging ; They also work with iOS

Battery life could be better ; Touch controls take some getting used to ; Ambient Sound doesn’t work on iOS

The best all-round wireless buds you can get. For now.

Samsung Galaxy Buds review

 

Small buds with a big sound

Comfortable, secure fit ; Stylish design ; Easy to pair and use ; Powerful bass

Ambient sound can be irritating ; Touch controls not always accurate

If you have a Samsung or other Android phone, the Galaxy Buds offer easy connectivity, a comfortable fit, and a warm, bassy sound. If you don’t, you may miss out on some cool extra features offered by the Samsung Galaxy wearables app.

Samsung is set to launch Galaxy Buds Plus with improvements across the board

 

No noise cancellation though

Hopefully both of these points will be addressed by Samsung with the newer models. We shouldn’t have too long to wait to find out, as SamMobile says that the new earphones will emerge alongside the Galaxy S20 on 11 February. Watch this space.

Meet the Galaxy Buds: Samsung’s answer to Apple AirPods

 

True wireless earbuds with a S10-tinged party trick

They’re 30% smaller than Samsung’s previous IconX earbuds, and this time around AKG audio powers the sound. You won’t get much kudos for predicting that, mind, given AKG is a sub-brand of Harman, which is in turn owned by Samsung. That should provide...

Samsung Galaxy Buds review: Middling performance

 

The Galaxy Buds are super comfortable and have wireless charging, but you can do better for the money

Comfortable ; Instant pairing ; Charging case can be wirelessly charged

Poor audio quality ; Inconsistent touch controls ; Problematic wireless transmission

However, if all you want is a decent pair of true wireless headphones to go with your existing phone, they make a far less convincing case for themselves, with lacklustre sound quality and spotty connectivity outweighing the Galaxy Buds’ undoubted...
