Galaxy Buds 2 are super powerful earbuds with a small and lightweight design, active noise cancelling technology, IPX2 water resistance rating, and 7.5 hours of continuous playback. What’s more, they’re rather compelling in $150 compared with Apple AirPods, Beats Studio Buds and the like. Since you’ve already owned an Android phone or iPhone, here comes a question that whether or not your phone is compatible with Galaxy Buds 2.
Can you connect Galaxy Buds 2 with an Android phone?
Yes, you can use Galaxy Buds 2 with your Android phone. According to Samsung, Galaxy Buds 2 are compatible with smartphones that are Android 7.0 or newer and at least 1.5GB of RAM. There may be few features missing like seamless pairing process, spatial audio, and automatic switching between phone/computer etc. However, if you have a Galaxy phone, you can enjoy all the earbuds’ great features.
With an Android phone, you just need to install the Galaxy Wearable app from the Play Store before connecting it with the Buds. Then, open the app and tap Start. Place the earbuds case beside your phone with the lids open, and wait till “Galaxy Buds 2” pop up on the screen as an available Bluetooth device. Select it, follow all the instructions the app gives you. If you want to add a second pair of earbuds, open Galaxy Wearable, tap Menu>>Add new device. Pair your earbuds, hold both touchpads for a few seconds, and then you’ll see them on the available device list.
Can you connect Galaxy Buds 2 with an iPhone?
Basically Galaxy Buds 2 can be paired with any smartphone, but certain features will be limited on different handset, especially iPhone. You’re only left with very few basic functions like listening to music, accessing playback controls from the buds themselves, and controlling noise-cancellation and transparency modes as well. You’re no longer offered the iOS companion app to achieve a wider control (like customize gesture controls and seamless pairing process) just as you do on the Galaxy Buds Live.
To sum up, it’s great to own a pair of Galaxy Buds 2 for Galaxy/Android phone owners, those who have been locked in Apple ecosystem will probably find it upsetting to use Buds 2 with their Apple devices. However, if you’d like to try something new, the Beats Studio Buds are also nice option. They come with ANC, transparency mode, long battery life, and most importantly, compatibility with iOS.
