As a follow-up to the Galaxy Buds+, Samsung announced the Galaxy Buds Live at the Unpacked Event together with the Galaxy Note 20 series. Unlike the Galaxy Buds and Galaxy Buds+, the Galaxy Buds Live takes on a new kidney-shaped form factor that ditches the silicone ear tips and provides for a snug and comfortable fit for users.
Despite the unique form factor, what makes the Galaxy Buds Live stand out is that they have Active Noise Cancellation—making them one of the few silicone tip-free wireless earbuds to come with this feature. Unlike most TWS earbuds offered in the market right now, the Galaxy Buds Live has an equalizer feature that lets you tweak the soundstage according to your liking.
Other key features of the Galaxy Buds Live include wear detection sensors, programmable touch controls, IPX2 rating, and a Find My Earbuds feature. For battery life, the Galaxy Buds Live lasts for 6 hours with ANC and hands-free Bixby on, and the charging case adds an additional 21 hours of use. Charging is done wirelessly or wired via USB-C.
The Galaxy Buds Live is priced at $170(~Php 8.4k).
