Samsung Galaxy Buds Live Launched with ANC
Alongside the launching of the Samsung Galaxy Watch3, the Korean tech giant also announced its new Galaxy Buds Live. . The buds themselves are bean-shaped and does not protrude out of the ears. They also come with detachable wingtips for a better fit. Samsung calls this â€œone-of-a-kind aestheticâ€ which, sure, but I donâ€™t know how I feel about it still.
To pull this off, Samsung says it had to reconfigure the traditional earbud design and lay out internals in a horizontal layout instead. The earbuds also donâ€™t have any tips, which Samsung says helps them conform to the shape your ears, and be more comfortable.
Samsung Galaxy Buds Live Specs and Features
The two earbuds features 12mm drivers tuned by AKG, 3 microphones (1 in the inside and two on the outside), and a bass duct. Despite their tiny footprint, the company claims 6 hours on a single charge (60mAh per bud) and 21 hours with the charging case (472mAh) which charges via USB Type-C and Qi wireless charger.
The buds weigh 5.6g each while the charging case (empty) weighs 42.2g. As far as size is concerned, both of them measure 27.2 x 17.3 x 15.5mm and 50.0 x 50.2 x 27.8mm in dimension respectively.
Further, they connect to devices via Bluetooth 5.0 and support AAC, SBC, and scalable codec. They also include touch panel for controls and accelerometer, hall sensor as well as proximity sensor for wear detection.
