Samsung announced its next-generation wireless earbuds, the Galaxy Buds Live at Unpacked 2020. The earbuds are likely to take the mobile accessory market with its elegant design and markable features.
With a speaker on the middle of the bud, the earbuds are designed like a kidney bean in shape. The lower part sits directly inside the ear canal while back filling up the upper part. The Buds Live featureS 12mm speakers, bass duct, and three microphones, tuned by AKG. There’s also Active Noice Cancellation included. Samsung says the Buds can seamlessly switch between compatible devices, without any disconnecting and reconnecting hassle.
Each bud has a 60mAh battery, and the charging case has a 472mAh unit. Samsung says it’s sufficient to get up to 6 hours of playback with ANC turned on or up to 8 hours without ANC. Charging the buds for 5 minutes can get you about an hour of battery life, while the case can get you going up to a full 29 hours through its capacity.
The pill-shaped case previously used for Galaxy Buds Plus has been redesigned to a squared case for the new Galaxy Buds Live with a rubber strip on its lid. The earbuds will come in three colors including Mystic Black, Mystic White, and Mystic Bronze. It starts at $169, and can be ordered through Samsung’s website.
