Why are the left and right sound volumes unbalanced?

The sound volume of your Galaxy Buds Pro may be different on the left and right, if the earbuds are not worn properly.

For the best sound quality and normal functioning, it is very important to place the Galaxy Buds Pro perfectly in your ears. If you don't wear the earbuds properly, they may not work, or sound quality may be poor.
