We're big fans of Samsung's wireless earbuds. In our Samsung Galaxy Buds Live review, we praised the earbuds for their great sound quality, comfortable fit and solid battery life. Meanwhile, the Samsung Galaxy Buds 2 Pro rank among our best wireless earbuds for their awesome ANC, wide soundstage and practical design.
If you're having trouble choosing which buds to buy, the biggest difference between the two is their use of active noise cancellation (ANC). The Samsung Galaxy Buds Live offer subtle ANC that drowns out background noise, but we weren't totally impressed by its effects. The Samsung Galaxy Buds 2 Pro offer more robust ANC buds that block out up to 90% of ambient noise.
In terms of special features, the Samsung Galaxy Buds Live can be tracked down if lost using the Find My Earbuds, and EQ levels for your music can be customized in the Galaxy Wearable app. The Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro are packed with special features: you'll be able to make use of 360 Audio, Accessibility, Bixby voice wake-up, control customization, and more in the app.
Other than that, both the Samsung Galaxy Buds Live and the Samsung Galaxy Buds 2 Pro offer an awesome audio experience with great sound quality for their respective prices. No matter which you choose, you'll be getting a great pair of wireless earbuds.
