What Hi-Fi

Truly disappointing

It’s a pity that sound performance lets down what is otherwise an exceptionally-designed and well-featured pair of true wireless headphones. Compared to the Gear IconX, the design has been enhanced and the price slightly lowered, but the poor sound quality means Samsung has taken one step forward and two steps back. Steer clear.

They are a no-nonsense product designed for Samsung Galaxy users to listen to their favorite tunes in a convenient fashion. They look good, last long between charges, and have excellent Bluetooth 5.0 range. Audio quality could have been better, but then again, it is good enough for most people – and adequate for a pair of truly wireless earphones priced at $130.

Near everything included in the Galaxy Buds are expected with the second iteration of Apple's iconic earbuds. Wireless charging, improved audio, and better sound isolation are all but guaranteed in refreshed AirPods. Even features Samsung didn't include such as additional health features could be in the cards. Samsung may currently be ahead in this race, but they are about to get lapped.

Keeping it simple

from Pocket-lint

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.

The Galaxy Buds are a great pair of truly wireless earbuds for hours of daily listening or getting active. They have excellent fit, good enough sound, solid call quality and a great wireless connection that won't cause you problems. Battery life is also good, and the case for charging is one of the best-designed you can get today. A couple of the features aren't perfectly implemented, but that's a small mark on what are otherwise excellent earbuds that are worth the money.

The Galaxy Buds seem are a decent pair of wireless earbuds offering a good combination of price, design, features and sound quality. We find them comfortable which is tricky to achieve with wireless earbuds and some of the features here are useful like responsive touch controls and an Ambient Sound mode. With no aptX, the Buds aren't the best sounding earbuds around and don't have the best battery life either.

Affordable true wireless earbuds mired in frustration

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 are a solid option for Galaxy phone owners -- even with the caveats -- but if you’re planning to primarily use them with another device, there are better and more reliable options.

The new king of true wireless earbuds

from Phandroid

Samsung took everything good about wireless earphones, packed them with better battery life than anyone else, and put them out at a fantastic price. They may not sound great, but everything else they do is top notch.

Amazing Galaxy S10 freebie, not a must-buy

from T3

If you’re thinking about the Galaxy Buds, it’ll be because you want the outstanding endurance of the battery life or the convenience of true wireless, because you’re not going to get much better sound quality than the wired earbuds bundled with your phone.

Samsung fixed a lot, but not quite everything

from GSMArena

The Galaxy Buds look fancy and would be an amazing gift for those who pre-ordered the Galaxy S10. But I am pretty sure you can find other Bluetooth earbuds that deliver better value for your money.
