“I had previously bought a Jabra Elite 3, and it had egregious charging issue. These earbuds charge easily in the case, the companion app works great. This is my first pair of ANC earbuds, so it's hard for me to compare the quality to other competitors. But the ANC is very noticeable when walking on a windy day and cars are driving by. I love it!
The battery life is worse than other bluetooth earphones without ANC, but I think it's good enough for me.”

“I bought these after I broke my Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 2. The main reasons to go for these instead of something like the Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 3 or the Sony wf-1000xm4 is its IP7 rating against others' IP4 rating. I wanted to use this without any worry for my walking and other workouts. Previously I had another cheaper Anker buds with IP7 rating with my Sennheisers for that specific purpose. It's good to have an all-in-one solution. Another reason is that my phone is a Samsung S22 Ultra, so I wanted to have the Samsung specific perks from these buds.
Pretty good. I think they're roughly in the same ballpark to my Sennheisers, although I might give the Sennheiser the edge. But I'm not feeling that I'm missing my Sennheisers.
Good - IF you have a good fit.
It was pretty bad for me initially with the stock tips. Without a good fit/seal, you don't get a good passive isolation, which in turn renders the ANC less effective. For me the buds a pretty shallow, didn't feel confident. I'm an IEM guy, I've used a lot IEMS over the ears from high-end to low-end - I've never had this type of fit issue with any other IEM or TWS buds. I did a lot of tip rolling, but none of the silicone tips that I have improved the fit to my liking.
Finally, I tried a pair of foam tips that I had in my disposal - and it fit perfectly. The foam tip length is significantly longer than the stock silicone tips - and that did the trick. Now the passive isolation is as I'm used to with other IEMs and the fit feels very secure.
So my 2 cents: think about the fit issue if you're planning to use the buds for running/working out. Some other reviews in the web also mention the fit/isolation concerns. There might be other solutions for tips like Comply etc, but I'm not 100% sure if it would solve my problem. Thankfully, the foam tips saved them for me.”

“I love Samsung ear buds and this is the third pair I've bought. These do not stay in the ear! I have tried all size tips and even according to the app had a perfect fit and as soon as I start talking or walking they just slip out. I can't even run on a treadmill with them in or they fall out. The sad thing is they sound great, but the hassle of having to keep pushing them in is not worth it.”

“I bought the Buds2 Pro to replace my Buds live. I mean, they come in purple and they’re a redesign of my favorite black ear beans! I was sure I’d love them even more than the live. I don’t.
The buds 2 pro case feels more solid than the live case and they don’t show every smudge or speck of dust like the shiny black beans. They have excellent Active Noise Cancellation and Ambient Sound modes. They excel at both blocking noise and letting noise in—and they give you fantastic control over the levels of intensity for each.
Both offer find-me features that have come in handy, and both allow you to control sound equalization via the app (where you’ll find other customizable controls) and hands-free Bixby control if you care to use bixby. I don’t, so I can’t comment on that aspect. Importantly, neither of them fall out of my ears when I walking or sleeping. Galaxy Buds are the first earbuds I haven’t lost!
The thing that makes me reach for my old Buds Live though is the shape. The beans never hurt my ears, ever. I sleep with a bud in, but with the Buds 2 pro, I find myself pulling it out after an hour because my ear hurts. I end up sleepily dropping it beside me in the bed and have to use the “find my earbud” feature to locate it in the morning. So for now, the Buds live will help me fall asleep and the purple beauties are reserved for short jogs around the neighborhood.”

“These are the best earbuds I ever had! These have nice sound quality, crisp mids and handles highs pretty well, not the most bassist earbuds in the market but with the dedicated bass speaker inside the earbud, you can play bass heavy songs without making your mids and highs sound mushy. Battery could be better but it's plenty enough for my use case, fits great feels high quality and ambient node sounds almost like your normal ears! 10/10 would recommend for any galaxy user”

“These sound AMAZING, they are an actual upgrade from the Bud 2. I have used every version of these earbuds.
The only issue with these at least of the last two versions is functionality when working out. I had the left side fail on both of these earbuds from working out from sweat and rain. These Bud 2 Pro the left side failed within a week of everyday use (walking or workout). They were able to warranty repair it but only the Live (bean version) and below that I still have, is able to handle hard workouts & outdoor elements.”

“The best buds for Android users! I use these at work, on airplanes, skate rinks or walking outdoors. ANC is perfect for all these things. Just download the galaxy wearable app. The 24bit audio only works for audio apps that support 24bit like Amazon Music, Apple Music & Qobuz. Although if you use Spotify like I do they only provide 16bit audio. It isn't a noticeable difference. Dolby Atmos which Amazon Music provides has a noticeable distinction from both. Coming from the Galaxy Buds+ the only thing I'll miss is the 11hr battery life vs the 8hrs with 2 Pro.. but cut that in half to 4hrs when using ANC”

“I’m not a sound guy, so if you’re looking for a professional opinion on bass, treble and all of that, I can’t help you. What I can say is that these sound extremely good.
These are the first pair of earbuds that I forget are in my ear, super comfy and fit perfectly straight out of the box. I’ve owned Beats version of EarPods and they would be uncomfortable after just a few hours.
And lastly the battery life is good, it’s sufficient for me. I usually keep one in at a time, and on occasion I’ll use both when I’m out walking. And they immediately go back in the case when I’m done. And when I get home they go on the charger whether it’s fully charged or not.
You just can’t go wrong with these.”

“I typically am not a big fan of buds, but at work (I sit at a desk all day) I can't have over the ear headphones and wired buds are irritating. These are excellent at noise canceling and after I got them adjusted correctly they were extremely comfortable. I have not used them much while walking or working out, I prefer my over the ear headphones for that, overall I recommend these.”

“Struggled constantly trying to get a good seal even with the aftermarket comply tips. Having used IEMs for over 20 years from Shure, Westone, and Sony, I have a good idea when the in ear fit seems off. Same problem with the Ankers, both have shallow ear tips or odd angles so the body hits the ear before the tip is fully seated and sealing off the canal. I would fiddle around for 10min or more while walking to get a solid seal with Medium tips and it always felt like some air/gap/ angle was off.
For me, probably would work better if the foam ear tips were longer...silicone just isn't going to cut it as those are bad seals in general.
Besides that, I think sound quality and ANC is better than the Sony ones.”
The above is the real user review of Galaxy Buds2 Pro, which shows that it is a good earbuds. However, it still has some problems, such as overpriced, unstable to wear and easy to fall off during walking or other workouts.If you expect to find headphones that are more comfortable, stable and practical in the market, Wissonly Hi Runner bone conduction headphone is worth your consideration.

Their products have powerful performance, high-cost performance, and are very strong in core performances such as sound quality, sound leakage reduction, and waterproof level.

The overall touch of the earphone is as silky as baby's skin, avoiding uncomfortable situations when worn for a long time.
Moreover, its weight is very light, less than 30g, and it will not feel heavy when worn. After wearing it, I took it off at the end of the run. This Hi Runner didn't let me have any extra adjustment. As the flagship model of outdoor sports of Wissonly brand, it is the most comfortable and cost-effective one among all bone conduction at present.
When you sweat a lot when running or doing other sports, or when it suddenly rains when you run or exercise outdoors, then the waterproof performance of sports headphones is very important.As the flagship model of Wissonly,the waterproof grade of Wissonly Hi Runner Sports Bone Conductivity Headphone reaches IPX8 waterproof grade higher than the industry standard.
