When the earbuds are connected to your phone, you can answer and control calls from them, you don’t have to scramble to pick up your phone when an important call comes in. Go ahead, take a run or go to the gym when you want to. Everything is under control.

Answer or decline a call

If you receive a call while wearing the earbuds, they will emit a sound and a voice notification will inform you of the incoming call's phone number.

  • To answer the call, double tap the touchpad.

  • To decline the call, touch and hold the touchpad.

  • To end the call, double tap the touchpad.

  • To turn off the microphone, tap and hold the touchpad during a call so the other party cannot hear you.

If you aren't notified of the incoming call's phone or tablets number by voice notification, navigate to and open the Galaxy Wearable app. Depending on the earbuds, you may need to tap the SETTINGS tab. Tap Notifications, tap Manage notifications, and then tap the switch next to Incoming call.

Answer a second call

When you receive a second call while you're talking on the phone, the earbuds will emit a sound.

  • To end the current call and answer the second call, tap and hold the touchpad.

  • To place the current call on hold and answer the second call, double tap the touchpad.

  • To switch between the current call and the held call, double tap the touchpad during a call.

Note: You can only hear the other party's voice through the main earbud with Gear IconX.
