They are a truly stylish set of earbuds that feature Active Noise Cancellation, long battery lif,e and great audio quality in a wide gamut of bold colors that make them stand out.

Why choose the Samsung Galaxy Buds Live?

The Samsung Galaxy Buds Live are a niche product, things like the design and other choices Samsung did with the device, make them a bit divisive. So to figure out if the magic beans are for you here is some more information about them.

The Galaxy Buds Live are instantly recognizable, not only by their shape but also their vibrant colors, Samsung really took some liberties with the looks, offering a truly unique design. The shape is bean-like and as we said it's quite divisive, my colleague Antoine Engels really enjoyed the nice open-fit format, although he did note that they create some anxiety that they may fall out.

This form factor also comes at the sacrifice of passive noise-canceling capabilities since the seal is not as tight as with in-ears. This is why Active Noise cancellation is necessary in these headphones and they fair just alright in that field.

The sound is okay for the price range and the 12 mm drivers that are tuned by AKG offer extra bass performance. The buds also support codecs like SBS and AAC. Keep in mind that my colleague did not particularly enjoy their sound performance so if you are an audiophile it's probably better to look elsewhere.

Their microphones are excellent for calls, allowing for clear voice reproduction even on the busiest days while the accompanying software carries the excellent quality standards of Samsung. If you do not mind this, and you need a premium, stylish daily driver for the price of entry-level earbuds then the Galaxy Buds Live are for you. At worst, you can plant them in your garden in hopes of finding golden goose eggs.
