Galaxy Buds Live
Introducing Galaxy Buds Live
The earbud designed to tune in to every moment. With an iconic shape and ergonomic design, a fit that lets in your natural surroundings, and a speaker optimised for a better experience. This is sound made for your ears.
A design that's unheard of
The new iconic shape of true wireless earbuds
Galaxy Buds Live’s eye-catching design stands out, even inside your ear. Reflecting the curves of the ear and face for a natural look, they're polished off with a glossy finish and even come together with a jewelry box-inspired case — to fit in your hand when on the go.
Elevate your style with glossy finishes
Available in three colourways you can't help but love. Choose from Onyx, Mystic Bronze, Mystic White, Mystic Black, Mystic Red or Mystic Blue to add a flashy touch to your look.1
Made for your ears
Galaxy Buds Live sit softly inside the ear, giving you a fit for all-day comfort with less fatigue. Its ergonomic design is snug yet non-intrusive with two wing tip sizes for a better fit. So, commute to the office, go to a friend's house, and more without your buds leaving your ears.
Stay tuned in
ACTIVE NOISE CANCELLATION
What you hear is up to you
The first Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) for open type on Galaxy’s true wireless buds keeps the noise out, but lets the world in. It reduces background noises without missing what’s important, like voices and announcements, so you hear more of what you want to hear — all with just a long press to turn it on.2
*Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) on Galaxy Buds Live received UL Verification for cutting background noise by up to 97% in low-frequency bands.
LIVE & DEEP SOUND
Hear every sound come alive
Feel like you're in the front row, or part of something bigger. 12mm speakers with sound by AKG work together with Galaxy Buds Live's ergonomic design to deliver spacious sound, while the large driver and bass duct help emit deep bass with air flow that lets sound flow seamlessly.

Words go through crisp and clear
With three built-in mics and Voice Pickup Unit, you get incredible call quality from the true wireless earbuds. The Voice Pickup Unit senses when your jaw is moving, and as your jaw vibrates this data is converted into voice signals to deliver enhanced sound quality — even among the noise.
