Galaxy Buds Live review: good beans, no compromises

The Galaxy Buds Live are Samsung’s latest true wireless earbuds and for $169.99 the Buds Live have a style all their own, well actually they share it with a damn kidney bean. But bean jokes aside, although these wireless earbuds come in a unique shape, they retain the solid hardware and audio quality we have come to expect from the galaxy line.

Who won the mic test??
RedBlueSpot ਮਹੀਨੇ ਪਹਿਲਾਂ
The Galaxy Buds Live is really good sound, battery, fit and quality wise. But the ANC is doing nothing and might aswell be placebo effect. Maybe it blocks 1%, but you can hardly tell if its on or off. In quiet environments the superquiet humming sound from the ANC adds more noice then it filters. Sometimes a very low frequency noicw might sorta get filtered... maybe.. I can't stress this enough. Don't buy the Galaxy Buds Live ANC. You should treat the Buds Live as they got NO ANC and you are better off leaving the ANC off, because it practically doesnt exist. When are Samsung going to add ANC to their earbuds? We are still waiting.

Buds live won and are still winning, although the airpods still sound more natur, try airpods after a year, trust me they won't sound as good, the airpods mic degrades over time *even with cleaning.

Beans are great sounding, but keeping them set in the sweet spot in the ear is the challenge. I returned mine yesterday, and the Best Buy employee said these are returned often. Maybe Samsung should’ve included better tips or sleeves in the box.

I love the galaxy buds live because they don’t hurt my ears, since you aren’t shoving buds INTO your ear. These stay just out your ear canal where it won’t cause discomfort due to air pressure, or hurting ears due to direct sound inside . LOVE THEM!

Do the buds live stay in the ears while working out, running or do they fall off easily? I'm contemplating between the buds + & buds live

I don't like that they don't have silicone tips. I'm not a fan of the trend of making earbuds hard plastic. I don't want to hear what's going on around me, and the sound quality is just not as good. I'll keep my Galaxy Buds+.

I was so excited to try these earbuds out after hearing some of the raving reviews here on PApost. Unfortunately my experience wasn't as raving. I guess if your using a Samsung phone with these they might sound pretty decent. My experience using a Apple iPhone Pro 11 however was not a good one although setting it up and syncing it to my phone was fairly simple. I describe the sound as being a very thin sounding bud that is mostly inaudible in public spaces or any place where there is a lot of ambient noise like cars driving by, wind blowing, air conditioner/heater turned on, etc. and that's with the volume pretty much maxed out. I ended up refunding the product. The Sony's WF-1000XM3 sound fuller and more organic but hangs outside of the ear and have a tendency to fall out. The Sennheiser sound even better but is way too big and bulky for my taste and they also have a tendency to fall out. The Jabra 75t is good but they have a master slave setup meaning you can't use each bud independent. That's a pet peeve of mine. The Apple Airpod Pros is still the superior product overall. My Airpod Pros alternative search continues

I like the beans. I got them last week and the very comfortable. The sound is great and loud enough that even with the open design I don't hear any outside noise. They're much more comfortable than the ones you shove in your ear canal and they don't press on any part of your ear. My old ones that have the rubber piece that holds it in place would start to hurt after a while from the pressure. I don't have that problem with these.

***DO NOT BUY THESE*** Don’t buy these, they don’t properly fit in and when you try to workout or go for a run they fall out easily and if you are sweating then forget about it. I tried to return but they wouldn’t accept them. 320 AUD is a waste of money. I have Buds+ and they’re perfect. If they don’t fit in then there is no point in having good sound quality or ANC. Better wait and buy the Bose buds that are releasing in October ***DO NOT BUY THESE***

Is Jabra just not a decent competitor in this space? they seem to have been left out of the last bunch of these comparisons but as far as headsets for work they seem like kind of a big deal... not to mention they're the only headphones i know of with a heartrate monitor built into them.

I really love the review! By profession I'm a tech guy, but via meditation I'm an awareness guy. Nothing is ever perfect all the time. But to experience such sound as a promise makes it worth the investment. In the end, it will depend upon individual ear differences, not to mention various phones the buds are paired with.

Young Person, take the earbuds out of your ear when you ride your bike... This is a deadly mistake... When on a bike, you need to hear everything around you. Take it from someone who has been hit by a car from behind. Your ears are your best friend, do not impede them in any way. Big mistake. Tell your 3 million subscribers that you made a mistake. Use your platform to inform about the best and most safe way to ride your bike. And I don't care about the sound the supposedly let in, it's not enough. If you care about your subscribers update the video and tell everyone wearing any kind of music bud in your ears while riding a bike is a BAD idea.
