Listen to Music on Your Samsung Earbuds

Guy listening to music with earbuds on the train

This is what you came for: all your favorite songs and playlists on your earbuds while you're on the train, on a jog, or just on the go. You can stream music from your phone and on some models, listen to music saved right on the earbuds.

Listening to music at high volumes may cause hearing damage.

Play Music Files Saved on the Gear IconX Earbuds

Music can only be streamed from a connected phone on Galaxy Buds.

There's no need to stream - just play music straight from your Gear IconX. First, transfer music from your phone or computer, and then use the controls to start the music.

  • To play or pause music, touch the touchpad.

  • To skip to the next song during playback, quickly touch the touchpad two times.

  • To return to the previous song during music playback, touch the touchpad three times.

  • To adjust the volume during playback, drag your finger up or down on the touchpad.

Play Music from Your Phone

Maybe you’re addicted to Spotify or Pandora. You can stream music straight from your phone to your earbuds.

Galaxy Buds

Connect your Galaxy Buds with the Galaxy Wearable app, and once you're connected, open any music player or app and play a song. The track will play through your earbuds automatically. You can use your phone to adjust the volume or control the playback.

Gear IconX

Open the Galaxy Wearable app, and then touch the INFO tab. Under PLAY MUSIC FROM, touch Phone. Now, any audio will play directly from your Gear IconX.

Gear IconX Wearable Home Screen

To ensure the optimal listening experience, keep the Galaxy Wearable app and the earbuds firmware up to date.

If you connect the earbuds to your phone while listening to music, the volume may change.
