Sync the Samsung earbuds to each other

Two Galaxy Buds Live

Even if your earbuds were out of sync by a millisecond, that would be enough to cause a headache. Luckily, coupling your earbuds couldn't be any easier. Just put both earbuds into your ears and they will connect to each other. It's really that simple.

Couple the two earbuds

Like we said, placing both earbuds in your ears will automatically pair them - they'll be perfectly in sync. However, if you are having some trouble, we have a few tips for you right here.

  • If one earbud is removed from your ear, the coupling will be disconnected. For the Galaxy Buds, Galaxy Buds+, or Galaxy Buds Live, the earbud that's still inserted in your ear will automatically switch the sound from stereo to mono.

  • To recouple earbuds that have disconnected, remove and then reinsert both earbuds. The coupling will automatically recover. If not, keep the earbuds in the charging case for at least 7 seconds. Then, try wearing them again.

  • If you lose an earbud, you can continue to use your single earbud with the device it was previously paired to. However, some features may be unavailable. For purchase inquiries, visit a local Samsung Service Center.

  • If music files stored on Gear IconX are not transferred through the Galaxy Wearable app or Gear IconX Manager, you must resync the two earbuds.
