The Galaxy Buds are compatible with all Bluetooth-enabled devices but work best with devices that run the Samsung
Galaxy Wearable app. Besides showing the usual information like battery level, the app also allows users to update the earbuds’ firmware, change graphic equalisers and manage the levels of ambient sound. Unfortunately, the Galaxy Wearable app is not available on the Apple App Store.
The Galaxy Buds handle loudness, stereo crosstalk and dynamic range well. Tweaking the graphic equalisers in the Galaxy Wearable app improves the performance significantly. While the earbuds’ sound is mellow, they lack deep bass. With four built-in microphones, the earbuds can also be used for taking calls. However, they struggle to capture voices in noisy environments. They also lack active noise cancellation.
