Trusted Reviews rates the Galaxy Buds highly, praising them for their design, fit and bass. They are best enjoyed with an android device so you can take advantage of the Samsung Galaxy wearable app. They warn that their 'ambient sound' mode doesn't work too well, but still rates them 4/5 stars.

Engadget gave the Buds an impressive 83% review. They liked their price, audio quality and battery life. They also thought they were now more integrated with iOS products (so don't feel you are stuck with the AirPods just because you have an iPhone). Noise cancellation could be improved, as could the waterproof rating.

T3 was less impressed. The major con was audio quality. Battery life and the wireless charging case were listed as Pros.

The ear buds are amazing. I am admittedly comparing them to Apple AirPods. The fit is great with the choice of included different sized buds, charging is easy & fast via either USB-C or wireless & most importantly the sound quality is spot on. The dynamics of the sound can be changed via the app as can other settings. Both sides have touch sensitive controls for skipping tracks and answering calls etc. I have these paired with my Huawei P30 & have had no issues at all. A very happy chappy.

Bough thee as a birthday present for my husband and he’s very pleased with them. They’re comfortable and stay in place. Also work with other, non-Samsung devices.

As to be expected, another great product from Samsung! What with the usual sound quality from AKG and fanatastic connectivity using the galaxy wearable app I couldn't ask for more. The fit in my ears was perfect with no sign of them falling out! Highly recommended!!

Top bit of kit for the price tag, battery life is great but first and foremost the connection is amazingly easy. Fits the ear great and I have no fear of them falling out on jogs or bike rides. I would recommend to anyone

The clarity on a voice call is brilliant. Buds fit well, are comfortable and do not feel as though they are going to fall out at all. Music sounds brilliant and the little case to charge and store them in is good quality too. Very pleased, would recommend.
