***DO NOT BUY THE BUDS LIVE*** Don’t buy these, they are NOT ONE SIZE FITS ALL. Thats pure BS. I tried different wing tips and none of them worked. And when you try to workout or go for a run they fall out easily and if you are sweating then forget about it. I tried to return but they wouldn’t accept them, such a horrible customer experience. 320 AUD is a waste of money. I have Buds+ and I love them and they’re perfect. If they don’t fit in then there is no point in having good sound quality or ANC. Better wait and buy the Bose buds that are releasing in October ***DO NOT BUY THE BUDS LIVE***

Absolute crap, failed less than a week after purchase. Bought a set in Japan with an "international warranty" - except it isn't. If you live in Oz, you have to send them back to Japan for repair! The "free" repair cost would be more than they are worth. I am about to spend over AUD4000 on a new fridge, and replace my crappy Note10+ with a Hauwei. So much for customer loyalty.

And how about the ANC from WF-1000XM3?

When you said you'll talk about call quality later on, you meant in a different article or what?

I still don't understand how they stay in your ear. I can't figure out which ear folds the 'wingtip' (what a stupid name, looks nothing like) snugs between; the way they sit in pictures there are no prominent folds where they land. Or is it just a downward pressure to the tip is pressed towards the ear canal?

Nothing about call quality? Or is "a bit later on" in reference to another review that's coming later?

So far...the unpack event was no threat to others!

The shape for me is amazing and I'm waiting 😍
I think the price is little high though.

It does look like kidney though, however, once you stick it in your ear, it looks pretty neat. Better than the Airpods. Hopefully it sounds better too.

Lukhanyo, 05 Aug 2020Im sorry but these things look ugly and uncomfortable Ugly? Well it is a personal preference. But uncomfortable? I don't think so. The shape of the Galaxy Buds Live mimics the curvature of our ears.

It is not hanging out like the Apple Airpods or not Bulging out like the Galaxy Buds

masterv, 05 Aug 2020but they look like shit. You should start look around other than shit. You might find some other things to compare.

Looks like rubbish but still better than the Airpuds

Comparing with third party discount prices is irrelevant, GSMA.
You can technically buy these for 149 euros on eBay. Which is a little over half of the retail price of the Airpod Pros. See how easy it is to misrepresent facts?
