Use Your Samsung Earbuds Without a Phone

Earbuds without a phone

The beauty of your earbuds is you don’t even need to connect them to your phone. How freeing is that? Store all your music on the earbuds so you can enjoy a truly hands-free listening experience. Just use the touchpad on the earbuds to control music playback or start a workout.

Feature is not available on the Galaxy Buds.

Listen to Music

Did you know you can store up to 1,000 songs in your wireless earbuds? Once you transfer music to your earbuds, learn how to use the controls so you can listen to all those songs without a phone or computer in sight.

  • Touch the touchpad once to play or pause music.

  • Touch the touchpad two times to skip to the next song during playback.

  • Touch the touchpad three times to return to the previous song during playback.

  • Drag your finger up or down on the touchpad to adjust the volume during playback.

Start Workout

Are you trying to keep track of your heart rate when you exercise so you don’t push it too far? You can record and save exercise information, like how many calories you burned, on your earbuds without connecting to a phone. So all you need to worry about is moving forward at a slow burn.

  • Touch and hold the touchpad, and then release it when you hear “start workout.”

  • Touch and hold the touchpad, and then release it when you hear “workout details” to hear the recorded exercise information.

  • Touch and hold the touchpad, and then release it when you hear “ambient sound” to hear your surroundings during your workout. You will hear “Ambient sound mode turns on.”

    Note: On Galaxy Buds, use the Galaxy Wearable app to turn on Ambient sound mode.

  • Touch and hold the touchpad, and then release it when you hear “finish workout” to finish your workout and hear the details of your workout.

If the proximity sensor does not make contact with your ear, the earbuds may stop working. Remove the earbuds from your ears and insert them into your ears again within 20 minutes. When you hear “Workout mode starts again,” stay still until the voice guide is complete and then continue your workout.
