Mic has been good for me while I use it at work. I normally use just the left bud while working so I can hear what's happening around me. Able to do phone calls with just one bud. People do mention it is clearer when I have both on but one is fine.

Only gripe is that others seem to hear noises in my environment too clearly. I'm not able to use my screw gun or tap anything while talking or I deafen others on the line.

Just got a pair from Visions West End here in Edmonton with price match, they were not too happy about it but honored the price and beat the difference by 15%, ended up being like 161 $ with taxes.

Out of the box I didn't like them but once I downloaded the Samsung Wearable app and adjusted the sound to dynamic they sound a lot better and once they burn in a bit I think they will sound fantastic, happy with the purchase.

Has anyone been able to price match for the blue ones anywhere? Best buy won't do it because telus is only selling black Face With Rolling Eyes

The New Galaxy Buds Live/Buds X will be to the Galaxy Buds+ what the Airpod Pros are to the regular Airpods, although with this new bean design it's going to be an interesting fit for many.

Thanks for this. I was using this site to listen to the microphones of various earbuds and I have to say the Jabras do a really great job of eliminating background noise (listen to the noisy background audio files for each). It's unfortunate they don't test the Buds+, but I like the Buds+ otherwise.

Word of caution. I still haven't recieved my airpods pro that I ordered from Telus on June 11. Not a big deal for me but just beware that they can be atrocious with delivery time and inventory management.

I wouldn't exactly say they're dumping these, they recently came out with a bunch of new colors of them.

I think they'll sell them alongside the new Galaxy Buds X / Live whatever they end up calling it.

Anyone able to compare the sound on Galaxy vs other Androids?

The Samsung scalable codec is only available on Galaxies, so I wonder how these sound on other phones like Pixel with AAC codec

Should I buy the buds+ or the original one which I can get for $100 brand new on second hand market? Currently using a OnePlus bullet wireless not sure how big of an upgrade the galaxy buds will be.

I just got best buy to price match in-store no problem. Trying to cancel my Telus order but it seems I need to email them to do that...

I see.... i think i may place a telus order tonight jist in case and then see if BB will PM tomorrow. I'm nervous that they won't as the online rep pointed out that there's no sku or model number, but would obviously rather not wait! Let me know how order cancellation goes please

UGH this is a massive hassle, I can't catch a break today. Telus wants the billing and shipping addresses to be the same. Mine aren't (current address is not permanent so I just keep it set to my mother's), and even though i changed my billing address with the bank it won't work. Seriously kill me now lol
