Last Update date : 2023-06-11

Wireless earbuds have revolutionized audio experiences, providing convenience and immersive sound. However, an inflammation around the ear canal after using Buds Pro has raised concerns. Exploring the potential causes and finding remedies or precautions becomes crucial in this context.


When you wear canal-type earphones including Buds Pro for a long time, the humidity increases inside your ears and it may cause skin irritation or contact dermatitis such as inflammation of the outer ear. It can also occur when using other manufacturers’ canal-type products.

If you feel ear pain or skin irritation occurs while using the earbuds, please immediately stop using the device and visit your doctor for consultation.

And we recommend removing earbuds periodically from your ears so that the humidity inside the ears can be lowered when using the device for a long time.
After prolonged wearing Buds Pro please dry your ears and, clean the earbuds and ear tips regularly to prevent any problems.

Samsung has continuously managed the harmfulness of product materials according to internationally restricted substances and substances with controversial hazards. In addition, we are verifying compliance with international environmental regulations with an externally accredited international testing institute.
