Rated 5 out of 5 by from Different, innovative and great looking. Having read and watched many reviews of the Buds Live, I don't see what the fuss is about. For individuals (Like myself) I was attracted to how different the fit and sound is, rather than the traditional in ear pods, which I really don't like, especially the pressure build up. Anyway, having used the pods for some time, I'm really happy how they perform, even the ANC. For wooly hat wearers, these pods are great, even when taking calls. The dual mic system really delivers even when using ANC, which some reviewers made comments how it can be improved, on the flip side any call I take is clear on both ends. Battery is really good (considering their pods and dependant on your usage) and as always AKG have really kept their standards. After installing the wearable app, set up was simple and straightforward, so no messing about there. Many different features is.....something I'll let you guys look into. For any person out there who don't like in ear pods, then I recommend these very highly. Granted you will hear sounds around you but fit in well and so far I've not had any issues (especially headaches like the in ear tips used to cause) @Samsung, if you do a next gen version I am really looking forward to getting them, and I'm confident you will make great improvements with all feedback. Finally a pair of pods which are actually great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great features but not the best fit I'm thinking of returning the bus live because of the fit. I nearly lost one in a tin of paint so searched for a solution. I was told of some silicon sleeves that Samsung can supply, and after contacting customer services they agreed to supply me with some. I have today received a package from Samsung, expecting to find a set of the sleeves. Only to find 2 sets of blue wing tips. I shall attempt to contact Samsung to hopefully sort this out, falling that, they shall be returned.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointing Comfy fit but faulty disappointing product. Right ear went mute on first set after a few weeks, exchange issued, then second set started with a similar fault. Samsung now issued a refund. Gutted as lovely looking product
