Samsung Galaxy Buds Live is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 102.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointed I upgradedd from np my buds pro to these and honestly feel it was a downgrade. The biggest problem with these is the amount of background noise they let in. I bought for the noise cancelling which is a disappointment. The sound when using in the house is good, quality is good, but outside the house not great at all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZING!! So I had been looking for set of wireless earphones but the problem I have is that standard earphones, like the set that came with my S10 kept falling out, didn't have supports to stay in my ears. So when I came across the buds+ and say that they came with wing tips, I had to buy them and try them. So, when they arrived I tried them on with the set of buds and wing tips already on them and they fitted PERFECTLY first time!! The sound quality is amazing, great battery life and I really like the overall design of the buds+. I also like the added feature of wireless charging. So to conclude, I would recommend these to anyone straight away even if you are unsure if they fit and the amazing sound quality but if after you try them any you are not satisfied with the fit or the sound quality then you can return them, which I was reassured by when I used the very helpful chat to talk to a member of the customer services team who help me with purchasing the buds+.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good Out of the box these were good earphones, seamless connection with the galaxy wearable app, paired quickly with my OnePlus 7 pro. After fiddling with my phone's equaliser, they now sound amazing and I'm very happy. The battery seems to last ages aswell. I prefer not to use the touch controls so I can't comment on those as I have them disabled. Not to mention the gorgeous colour!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound and fit This is my first pair of wireless buds and I absolutely love them. The sound quality is great in terms of music and video calls. Moreover, they fit my ears so well and they offer a natural active noise cancelling. Would recommend them to anyone!
