Samsung Galaxy Buds Live Review These are Different

by birtanpublished on October 4, 2020

Hi guys this is ranjit and in this video we'll do the review for the samsung galaxy buds life these are the one and i feel assumptions should have just called them galaxy beans as you can see it looks like a bean and guys i tested it with three different devices uh one was this galaxy note 20 ultra because i was using it i also tested it with the rog phone three and i did not install any specific software that comes with this one for example the galaxy wave so i used it just for bluetooth and i also tested it with

A windows laptop so i'll share my experience because i've been using it for the last two weeks and i would say uh prior to getting this one i was very very skeptical because if you guys recall the original galaxy buds that came when simply not that good and they were improved quite a bit with this galaxy but plus this year so i had very what do you say little expectations with this one because this is a first generation

Product and in fact it looks very very different because generally in tech world what i have seen is that uh if a product just goes for the style the functionality is simply not that good but i was surprised with this one actually it comes in this box as you can see this says parts live and it comes in this tiny box like this exterior you have a usb type-c port and the battery life is actually good samsung claims about six hours uh and i could get about five

Hours and you can actually charge it almost about two and a half times with this one itself and specifically if you have a samsung phone it pays very easily for example this is the note and whenever i just quickly just open it up uh as you can see it is opened up and you see the charge level and so the pairing is very very easy uh again if you don't have a what is samsung centric phone the regular bluetooth pairing you have to do

That also works well because i've played with the laptop and with the rog phone three work fine and uh let me just show you this uh i'll come back to the app galaxy wear app because you can fine tune some stuff with this one uh and as you can see uh green light denotes that it is fully charged we also have one more light over here right now it's not green because i have just about 30 odd percent on the charger if it was like above like say 80 percent it would have gone green uh so you can just take this out and if

You look at it it looks like being a very different kind of uh what do you say earphones uh and i would say this is in between the regular what do you say uh earbuds that we get that we wear that actually form a proper seal in your ears and uh between the airport style of earphones that just sit over here so this is sort of in between and in fact to wear it you have to just put it inside your ear and do like this

And it stays so basically uh they're not totally going inside here they're actually being sitting like this and the good thing is that i thought this will fall down but that's not the case if you move around also the stays securely fit in the ear and the advantage is that because these are don't form that what do you say a seal like a proper in here you can hear quite a bit of ambient sound around you so example if you're in office or walking outside us you will hear a lot of sound that's

Important because these actually form a big seal so that is i would say it's the best of the two worlds neither what do you say completely sealed nor like airpods where you can hear a lot of they also have active noise cancellation but i feel that is sort of a gimmick on this one but let's first talk about some of the things that i notice and we'll come back to the sound quality later on it also has integrated microphones so

I did take a lot of calls with this one and i have to say the call quality was very very good uh i even did some as i've told you i paid it with my laptop so did a lot of video conferencing also these days happening a lot on microsoft teams and skype and again no issues no no one complained about it took a lot of phone calls also they were good so it looks like the uh microphone quality is good in fact here is a quick video sample that i shot uh on the terrace to give you an idea guys recording the audio via this microphone

And just to give you an idea i'm just walking away as you can see uh the audio is being transferred from this and i purposely went outside and i'm shooting this to give you an idea how is the audio recording while you take calls etc outdoors there's a little bit of noise etc going on but this should give you an idea about the microphone pickup and i did take a lot of calls with this one and no one complained but this is the sample now talking about the battery life as if totally the buds uh

Samson claims about six hours but easily you should get about about five hours of battery life on this one and again it charges via this so again not a problem and the good thing is that these are actually magnetic if you put it like this i was also like a little bit curious what will happen to this one and if you do it like this also they don't fall but again be careful don't lose this and so the battery life is not an issue i would say but now coming to the bluetooth range

Here i would say i had mixed results again in a same room i never had a problem it was always connected and even if i just go to the next room it's connected but if i go to the second room then it is getting disconnected so the bluetooth connectivity is good but not the best that i've seen because some of the uh bluetooth headsets that i have uh tested earlier uh i would say even in the second room they were not disconnecting this was disconnecting so i would say the bluetooth range is good

But not the best that i have seen one thing i really liked about this one and i was very very skeptical about this how will be it to wear it continuously for hours and hours and here i would say samsung has nailed it it is very comfortable to me in my ears and i would say on in my right ear it is super super comfortable i can just wear it for a couple of hours and after some time i don't even feel whereas on my left uh here i think so my left ear is slightly smaller than the

Right one here after an hour or hour and a half i feel a little bit it's pushing my ears so that is something that i have noticed uh but i would say these were one of the most comfortable earphones that i have worn and i can wear it for hours and hours and i don't feel the fatigue the good thing is that you can just put one of them back in the case and for taking calls and stuff i was just using it here like this and almost uh what four

Five hours i was just wearing it and i didn't even feel it they're so light after sometimes you just forget that you're wearing so in that area i would say the comfort they have nailed it but again there is one problem also that i have noticed with this one uh i asked my daughter to try it this out obviously she has smaller ears and for her it simply did not work they were just too come uncomfortable for her so again if you have very small years then uh it can be a issue

So again uh i don't know how but i would say if you have medium to large size here it will be very comfortable if you have small size ears then they might not be the right fit for you but now let's talk about the audio quality with this one and here i was very very surprised as i told you i did not have a lot of expectations with this one but in terms of audio quality they really surprised me uh first let's talk about the bass the bass is definitely boosted on this one and it's done very well uh it's not overpowering or

Something like that but it is done in a very very good way and in fact initially i did not have to touch the equalizer or anything on this one the base that i was getting was so good so in fact i was surprised with the amount of bass that i was getting on this certainly elevated but it's not done in a muddy way so i like that and i enjoyed the bass on this one in fact for bass i would give it as high as 9.25 now when it comes to the mid tones

Uh those are the vocals and all those things i would say here also i enjoyed it uh the very clear very crystal clear clear the vocals sounded beautiful on this one and i would rate it as high as 9 out of 10. now if we talk about this higher tones that the treble tones here i felt at the default setting uh without the equalizer i would rate them 8.5 out of 10. so overall i would say in the terms of sound signature

These actually surprised me because i was not expecting that much but now because we do have this app on this one you can use this galaxy uh wearable app and you can actually tweak the sound signature on this one and even invoke the active noise cancellation active one let's first talk about the active noise cancellation you can toggle it on and off and here i would say to me it hardly made any difference that's why if you notice it was shut off i just

Shut it off because it was hardly making any difference outside if you're looking for active noise cancellation you'll be disappointed but uh if uh just let's just assume that it does not have active noise cancellation that way i would put but here as you can see you have this equalizer and using this you can actually tweak the sound signature quite a bit on this one and uh i like that it default on the normal but i would say if you want that slightly higher sparkle

On the higher tones then i put it on this dynamic and it would sound really really good and you can even customize uh this one i would say the touch buttons again if you tap once it'll pause double tap it will go but you can even customize it uh what it does when you hold it so you can go to touch controls i have customized it left to lower the volume and right if i hold it for some time it increases the volume you can also change this to active noise active noise

Cancellation i would say just forget it it's almost non-existent i would say on this one it hardly made a difference so again you can customize that so i liked that and now let's talk about how it works for watching videos because generally with many of the bluetooth headset we have latency issues that means lip sync issues can happen here i would say at least on this samsung phone and even on this asus rog phone when i was watching a lot of

Youtube videos i did not notice that lip syncing issue so in though those areas were it was okay but again if you are doing a heavy gaming or something yes i did notice that some times that latency but on my laptop when i connected for what do you say video calls and all those things it was fine but when i was watching some netflix or even youtube videos while my laptop i did notice that lip sync issue so that latency surprisingly it's not there on the

Smartphones but it's there on the laptop so that is something that i have noticed overall if i have to uh read this one i would say if it fits in your ear properly and you just do not like what do you say this traditional earbuds because they just go too much in your ear you might like it because they are very comfortable and after an hour or so you hardly feel that you're varying so in that aspect it's good but again the fit has to be nice

As i've told you it's very comfortable in my right ear but for some reason on my left ear it's slightly on the tighter side and you just can't do anything about this one because this is a fixed size that they have so if if it fits right to you i would say you really like it uh but again in terms of anc if you're expecting too much active noise cancellation then i'm sorry to say that you will be disappointed but overall i would say i'm surprised

With this one and i really like that this one the sound quality is good the comfort factor is something that is very different and in this tech world i would say uh samsung has done something very unique they look very very different stylish but in terms of the core functionality that i would say for taking calls and for listening to music they perform very very well and in fact the battery life is also very good so if i have to rate this one overall

I would say uh barring some of the cons that i've told you regarding the fit and other things i would rate this one as high as 8.9 out of 10. anyways guys that's it for now thanks for watching this is ranjit and i hope to see you in my next video take care guys
