Samsung Galaxy Buds Live Wireless Noise-Cancelling Earbuds

Aug 13. 2020

Innovative, trendy yet comfortable design

Triple Mic with Active Noise Cancellation and Noise Isolation

Enjoy up to 29 hours of music

Hong Kong – August 13, 2020 – Samsung Electronics H.K. Co. Ltd. today introduced the Galaxy Buds Live wireless noise-cancelling earbuds, with a stylish look that defies convention, coupled with the original ergonomic design that makes them comfortable enough to be worn all-day. Featuring AKG’s sound expertise with three microphones and a Voice Pickup Unit, the earbuds effectively tune out environmental noise, allowing users to enjoy the music world without noise and ensuring a loud and clear sound on their phones. The 29-hour long play time is enough to provide more than a full day of use. 


Exclusive Ergonomic Design Brings Unbelievable Comfortable Experience


The Galaxy Buds Live wireless noise-cancelling earbuds come with an ergonomic, tip-less design, providing greater comfort for users whose ears won’t get tired even after long hours of wearing them. Users can further customize their fit with two wingtip sizes. Samsung has reconfigured the traditional earbud design, laying out internal components horizontally instead of vertically. That way, the earbuds don’t protrude from ears, providing a more natural appearance. The unique and exquisite look brings new surprises plus three stylish yet classic colors – Mystic Black, Mystic Bronze, and Mystic White, bringing the Galaxy Buds Live under the spotlight apart from other wireless earbuds. 


Professional Sound Technology Creates Deep Sound and Live Experience


Bringing users the best sound quality is essential to wireless earbuds. Combining AKG’s sound expertise with Samsung’s legacy of hardware innovation, the Galaxy Buds Live offer a live audio experience. With three microphones and a Voice Pickup Unit, the earbuds ensure that the voice always comes through loud and clear on the phone. The Galaxy Buds Live also feature Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) for open type[1] and Noise Isolation, helping users to tune out distractions and allowing them to enjoy music without noise. Even when in a noisy environment, users are still able to tune into important conversations in the call. With a 12mm big speaker and bass duct, the audio sounds live and spacious, creating a richer sonic experience. 


29-Hour Long-Lasting Battery Life Provides Unstoppable Music


The Galaxy Buds Live come with up to 29 hours of long-lasting battery life[2], letting users enjoy music longer. When fully charged, the earbuds can support up to 6 hours of playback, and the charging case allows an additional 15 hours over multiple charges[3]. The Galaxy Buds Live support Quick Charge, so that users can gain 1 hour of play time with just 5 minutes of charging[4]. The earbuds also support Qi Wireless Charging, so that users do not need to worry about running out of battery. 


Compatible with Various Devices; Low Latency ‘Game Mode’ Synchronises Sound with Visuals


The Galaxy Buds Live offer a convenient and connected listening experience, compatible with a range of devices. Users can seamlessly switch between compatible devices with no disconnecting and reconnecting required. They can also pair the buds with the latest Galaxy devices. For example, you can record crystal clear audio for your video on the Galaxy Note20 by using Galaxy Buds Live as a wireless microphone. Activate low-latency ‘Game Mode’[5] to synchronise sound with visuals and win every game with the Galaxy Note20 Ultra’s Dynamic AMOLED 2X display for a more immersive gaming experience. The new Buds Together[6] feature allows users to easily share music with friends – letting two persons listen simultaneously without compromising sound quality. The Galaxy Buds Live feature IPX2 water resistance, resisting water drops that hit at a 15° angle or less. When it suddenly rains during outdoor sports, the rich sound experience won’t be affected at all. 


For more convenient navigation, Galaxy Buds Live feature an intuitive touch-based PUI (physical user interface) [7] for touch control as well as Bixby voice wake-up , which allow you to navigate music, open apps, and send messages hands-free and eyes-free.
