Summary

There's a small touchpad for controlling playback, answering calls, and enabling ambient mode.Image: karissa bell / mashableGalaxy Buds are thicker than AirPods, but don't extend beyond your ear, making them less likely to fall out.Image: karissa bell / mashableSo the first thing I did was change out the medium-sized ear tips that come straight out of the box for the smallest tips, which immediately made the Galaxy Buds much more comfortable.In fact, I was actually surprised at how comfortable they were. They did become slightly uncomfortable after a couple hours of solid use — as is the case with most earbuds I try out — but I suspect this won't be a major issue for people with normal-sized ears.Samsung has also tried to make Galaxy Buds as easy to set up and pair as AirPods. Weirdly, enabling ambient sound shortcut from the touchpad does make a noticeable difference — significantly lowering the volume so you can hear what's around you, regardless of whether ambient mode is enabled.The Galaxy Buds seal better in the ears than AirPods, which makes the sound a bit better.Image: karissa Bell / mashableIf that seems more than a little confusing that's because it is.
