Clean your Galaxy Buds

If you enjoy using your Galaxy Buds, Galaxy Buds+, Galaxy Buds Live, or Galaxy Buds Pro, you should make sure to clean and care for them regularly. Dust, earwax, and other debris can accumulate in the earbuds and make audio seem muffled, or prevent the earbuds from charging correctly.

Information provided applies to devices sold in Canada. Available screens and settings may vary for earbuds sold in other countries. When cleaning the earbuds, do not hold the earbuds upright, and do not use liquids like alcohol or soapy water when cleaning them to prevent debris or liquids from falling inside them.

Clean your Galaxy Buds, Galaxy Buds+, or Galaxy Buds Pro earbuds

Note: Before wearing your Galaxy Buds, Galaxy Buds+, or Galaxy Buds Pro earbuds, be sure to clean and dry the inside of each ear thoroughly. You should only wear the earbuds in dry conditions, and they should be clean before placing them in the charging case.

1 Remove the earbud tip. Carefully slide off the earbud tip. To prevent damage, do not use force to detach the earbud tip from the earbud.
2 Clean the earbud tip and the mesh covering on the speaker. Use a cotton swab and dry brush to remove any debris and foreign materials from the earbuds and the earbud tip. Make sure to clean the air ducts on your Galaxy Buds Pro as well.

3 Wipe inside the earbud tip with a soft, dry cloth to remove dust, earwax, or oil from the mesh part of each earbud receiver. Avoid using a metal or wire brush when cleaning the earbuds, as the harsh bristles may damage them.
4 Attach the earbud tip to the earbud. After cleaning is complete, properly assemble the earbud tip on the earbuds. Cover the latch at the bottom of the earbuds with the earbud tip.
5 Use a cotton swab to clean the charging contacts and sensor on both earbuds and the contacts inside the charging case.

Note: There may be low or poor audio quality if debris and foreign materials build up in the earbud tip or on the mesh. When sweat or liquid is on the charging contacts, dry them thoroughly with a clean, soft cloth to prevent corrosion.
