PROS
  • These compact, lightweight noise-isolating true wireless earphones should fit most ears securely. They sound decent, battery life is good (around 6 hours at moderate volume levels) and their compact charging case offers USB-C wired and wireless charging.
CONS
  • Bass isn't all that deep; charging case only delivers a little more than one full charge; certain features only work with Android phones.

    WORKS INDIVIDUALLY: this was very important for me. They dont seem to have a “master bud” like some sets do, you can just take out 1 and use that one and then take out the other when the first ones battery dies. When you just use 1 bud then the long press volume only does what that bud is programmed to do, for example if I just use the left bud the long press will only turn the volume down and if I use the right bud the long press will turn the volume up. When using just 1 bud your media pauses when you take it out, if you use both then you have to take both out for it pause, or just tap once on the touchpad of either bud. Doesnt automatically play when you put them back in, you have to tap the touchpad to play.MAKE SURE HAVE THE RIGHT TIPS IN AND HAVE THEM AS DEEP AS POSSIBLE FOR OPTIMAL SOUND QUALITYSUPER EASY SETUP: on my s9+, just make sure you have the samsung wearables app. Auto connects when case opens if you have bluetooth on. AMBIENT NOISE: mode is kind of weird, probably not best in class but could be improved through software update. But you could definitley hear cars and loud voices if you have ambient mode turned up (only works when you have both buds in ears) There is an update you need to install when you connect for the first time that takes about 2 minutes.3 different size buds and fins included. Wireless charging works on highpower and low power charging mats not just on the back of an s10 device, usbC charging also available.Tiny wireless charging case, weak magnets hold the buds in and guide them to the charging pins, you can shake the buds out if you have the case open, stronger magnets hold the case closed in your pocket, good and solid clicky case, satisfying to open and close. CUSTOMIZATION: You can customize the “long press” on the touch pads to turn volume up and down, turn on ambient mode or activate the digital assistant of your choice.UI: No buttons, just a touch pad that is very responsive and it has sensors to know if they are in your ear and the touchpad doesnt work unless they are in your ear so you wont accidentally change your music when you take them out. Touchpad can be impeaded by hair over your ear. These buds and the case are tiny, you could probably hide them if you have long hair. Be sure you like tight fitting in-ear buds, everyones ears are different.SOUND: If you arent an audiophile they are great, I personally dont see much of a difference in any earbuds no matter the price, they do sound alot better the deeper into your ear you can put them. They dont seem to get ear bursting loud but they do get very loud, good bass punch.No onboard storage like the iconx.BATTERY: I have not ran them to their limits yet but while using just one bud I listened to 5.5 hours of podcast (mostly voice) at about 35% volume and after the 5.5 hours the bud still had 40% battery left. When that ones battery runs out you can switch to the other by just picking it up and putting the other one in the case to charge.INSTANT PAIRING: when you open the case and have bluetooth on they connect in less than 10 seconds, I have not had the little pop up window show up like in the ads but they instantly connect when you have bluetooth on.Great purchase if you like in-ear style buds, kind of like ear plugs. Most features only available on Android, Samsung phones apparently work best though, Iphone works with basic features and siri.

    I’ve been HYPED about these earbuds since they were announced during Samsung’s Galaxy Unpacked Event, and now I have them! I also own the predecessor to these, the Gear Icon X 2018s. I also have a pair of Jabra Elite 65Ts as well, I threw in some photos of those for a size comparison. I like these earbuds. Sound is good, definitely marginally better than the previous generation. The Galaxy Buds look better, they feel better, they’re smaller, and the case charges wirelessly which is actually SUPER useful.Now, I’m a Samsung FanBoy through-and-through, that being said, I think Samsung took a couple of steps backwards on a few things comparatively. The gestures are essentially the same as the previous gen except they got rid of swiping up and down on the earbuds for volume control. It’s not the biggest deal since you can still set up the earbuds to give you volume control (based on long presses of each earbud) but now you have to choose between being able to control the volume from the earbuds or triggering ambient sound or voice commands, you cannot do both (from the earbuds at least), and that’s kinda lame. Additionally, it seems like they’ve weakened the capability of Ambient Sound? On the previous gen I REALLY felt like I could hear my surroundings, within at least a ~10-15ft radius when Ambient Sound was active. With the Galaxy Buds that listening-radius feels significantly abbreviated for some reason? Additionally, most likely in the interest of shrinking the form factor, the Galaxy Buds no longer have their own onboard storage, so you can not store music on the buds themselves. That feature was super useful when you wanted to go for a run or workout but didn’t necessarily want to have to bring your phone, fortunately not having it isn’t a deal-breaker by any means.I feel like these decisions might have been driven by the desire for more people to download Samsung’s Galaxy Wear app, which is fine as a companion app. I feel as though with the Gear Icon X 2018s the goal was to help you not have to rely on your phone very much, if at all, where as the Galaxy Buds definitely make your phone a bit more necessary.In summation, they’re awesome wireless earbuds! They sound great, they look great, they’re compact, wirelessly chargeable, LOUD, comfortable, and not uber expensive! Personally, I love features and options. Even if I’m not particularly going to use something often, I still prefer to have the option just in case and I would say objectively speaking, compared to the Gear Icon X 2018s, your options are definitely a bit lessened with these guys.Upgrade worthy? Ehhhh, if you’re like me and prefer options and the Gear Icon X 2018s fit you comfortably then I would say you’re not missing out on anything more than a slightly modified design. If that’s worth an upgrade to you, go for it! If not, I think your Gear Icon X 2018s are worth hanging onto for a while longer! Lastly, if you’re new to the wireless earbud game, for $130 these are definitely a solid contender, especially considering the competition. Would recommend!

Ehhhh, if you’re like me and prefer options and the Gear Icon X 2018s fit you comfortably then I would say you’re not missing out on anything more than a slightly modified design. If that’s worth an upgrade to you, go for it! If not, I think your Gear Icon X 2018s are worth hanging onto for a while longer! Lastly, if you’re new to the wireless earbud game, for $130 these are definitely a solid contender, especially considering the competition. Would recommend!

    I’ve been HYPED about these earbuds since they were announced during Samsung’s Galaxy Unpacked Event, and now I have them! I also own the predecessor to these, the Gear Icon X 2018s. I also have a pair of Jabra Elite 65Ts as well, I threw in some photos of those for a size comparison. I like these earbuds. Sound is good, definitely marginally better than the previous generation. The Galaxy Buds look better, they feel better, they’re smaller, and the case charges wirelessly which is actually SUPER useful.Now, I’m a Samsung FanBoy through-and-through, that being said, I think Samsung took a couple of steps backwards on a few things comparatively. The gestures are essentially the same as the previous gen except they got rid of swiping up and down on the earbuds for volume control. It’s not the biggest deal since you can still set up the earbuds to give you volume control (based on long presses of each earbud) but now you have to choose between being able to control the volume from the earbuds or triggering ambient sound or voice commands, you cannot do both (from the earbuds at least), and that’s kinda lame. Additionally, it seems like they’ve weakened the capability of Ambient Sound? On the previous gen I REALLY felt like I could hear my surroundings, within at least a ~10-15ft radius when Ambient Sound was active.

    I had a lot of hope in these earbuds. As a previous owner of the Iconx 2018, I was expecting some of the same feature passed down. For instance, on the Iconx 2018, you could set the main earbud to left or right. This was handy when running with my Garmin. Connection issues happen when the main earbud is set to the opposite ear of the arm your watch is own. So the watch is on your left arm and main bud is in your eight ear. This causes the connection to drop out continuously. This is something great the Iconx had. You could change it to any ear. This feature is lost to the Galaxy Buds. I have to change the watch to my opposite arm to combat this, and it’s quite awkwardThe biggest let down was they had no internal storage. This was very disappointing, as this was my favorite feature on the Iconx. I understand they wanted to cut the size down but they took away what made the Iconx so great.I haven’t decided whether I want to return them or not. If someone can tell me how to set the main earbud or get around this, I’ll change my review. This doesn’t mean telling me to move my watch to the other arm.
