The Samsung Galaxy Buds are finally here. The wireless earbuds come out along with the Samsung Galaxy S10 flagship. And it’s set to rival the Apple AirPods and any other earbuds in the market. Technology is advancing towards wireless headphones and earphones, so we aren’t surprised to see this segment of the market progressing. Let’s check out this wireless buds from Samsung.
Samsung Galaxy Buds Design
The Samsung Galaxy Buds are available for purchase in three different body colors; Garnish neon yellow, Black and White. Each bud weighs just 5.6 grams and probably won’t notice you have them plugged in your ears. They are smaller and lighter than the IconX (2018).
The Galaxy Buds feature an IPX2 rating, which means you don’t have to worry about sweats or drops of water. For example, when doing your morning exercise with the buds plugged in your ears. There is a sensitive touch panel on the outside of each bud. The panel is used for controlling playback, play/pause, skipping tracks, handling calls and summoning Bixby (Samsung Virtual Assistant).
The case of the Galaxy buds acts as it’s charging source. When not in use, simply put the buds inside its case, which features tiny metal like the ones seen on the buds. The tiny metal inside the case connects with the ones on the buds and it begins charging. The case features a LED flash at the front which indicates if the buds are charging. The downside about this charging case is that you don’t know the battery level of the case.
Samsung Galaxy Buds Features
It’s best to use the Galaxy Buds with an Android-powered device. This is because Samsung has a Galaxy wearable app on Android, which is needed to get the best out of the Buds. The Wearable app lets you control most of the features of the Galaxy Buds. There is an equalizer, which lets you adjust the sound profile. The equalizer features five modes; Clear, Treble boost, Bass boost, Soft and Dynamic. You can also customize the touch buttons on the app.
There is also a good feature called “Ambient Sound”. This allows you to listen to what’s happening around you using the microphones on the outside. The Wearable app is where you will find the battery level of your buds and other essential features.
The sound quality of the Galaxy buds is actually good but the output will vary depending on the smartphone its been connected to. If the smartphone doesn’t have a good sound quality, there is little the Buds can do about it. So it’s always good to pair the buds with a device with quality sound output.
The sounds of the Galaxy Buds is by AKG, and they are among the best around. The buds offer good noise isolation and you won’t hear much from the outside world except when you switch to Ambient Sound mode.
Battery & Longevity
Each bud packs a 58 mAh battery capacity. The Buds will last about six hours on music playback and about five hours on calls. This is a decent amount of time but it’s certainly not the best in the market. The advantage of the Galaxy Buds is that its case supports USB-C fast charging and wireless charging. The case features a 252 mAh battery capacity.
The Buds case can, however, be charged by USB-C or wireless charging. The Galaxy Buds was released alongside the Samsung Galaxy S10 and you can use the Wireless PowerShare feature of the Galaxy S10 to charge the case by simply placing it (Galaxy buds) on the back of the Galaxy S10. I must confess it’s so amazing 🙂
Samsung Galaxy Buds Price
The Galaxy Buds is available for around $130, which is considerably okay for a wireless bud.
