Cycling and Running Headphones
I need something that can stand up to a lot of hammer, dirt and sweat. These are going to get used mainly for sports as I’ll be running and cycling. Cycling in the summer is my go to in between rugby seasons, but with rugby totally cancelled at the minute I’m now running. And my awesome Bose over-ear headphones are not suitable for running and obviously not getting out on the road bike.
The big thing that appeals to me with these are the ambient noise settings, which should mean I can get out on the bike and listen to my tunes and still hear the traffic. I may also be smashing my way through an Audible book but I’m sad like that.
Running with Samsung Galaxy Buds+
It’s amazing how annoying a set headphones can be when you’re running. But Samsung have nailed it. I’ve had no issues so far and I’m running a lot more than normal thanks to the lockdown we’re currently in, some of the wireless buds I’ve worked with are uncomfortable, but I can run in these and they don’t cause me any issues. Using the ambient sound settings also helps whilst running.

Battery Life of the Galaxy Buds+
The devices have 11 hours of charge, which is pretty impressive and a leader in this type of device. Add the case to that with another 11 hours of charge and you get a total of 22 hours.
The battery life will obviously be dependant on what volume you are listening at, if you need to drown out the outside noise and you’re pumping the volume you’ll obviously see a drop in battery life at a fast rate.
Setting Up Galaxy Buds+
Setting up the earbuds can either be done by pairing via Bluetooth for basic playback or by downloading the Galaxy Wearable or Samsung Galaxy Buds Plus app from the Google Play and Apple App Store.
If you’re tech savvy it’s pretty easy to go along, just make sure if your Bluetooth is messing up give your phone a reboot. Not the earphones that are the problem though, just my phone being an arse.
All in all, these are a decent pair of headphones and I’m personally really impressed. They do the job that I bought them for and some. If you’re gasping at the price of AirPods or other stuff then these could well be up your street as they offer similar qualities and style, but at a lower cost.
I’ve loved using these whilst running and on the bike. They will not compare to the over-ear headphones, but they are comparable with the best wireless buds you can get on the market in my personal opinion.
They work well enough to use without thinking about it whilst at the gym. I’ve done plenty of sessions of different varieties including sprint work and they are safe and solid once you get used to them and fit really well.
I’m an Apple fan boy but I’m still happy i went for these instead of AirPods as these fit the bill required. Sound quality is good and the batter life is great as i can use for a couple of days with no worries.
So far i have not lost them, but you never know. These definitely sit at the top of my list at the minute for these.
