    To those using the new galaxy buds with your note 9, do you all have the pop up window to connect as shown in the promotional video for the galaxy buds as well as in the galaxy unpacked event?

    Been using mine and do not have that pop up window. Hence it's more troublesome as I have to manually on my bluetooth and click connect.

    Obviously you won't get the pop up if bluetooth isn't switched on, or am I misunderstanding something here?

    Exactly. They don't eliminate you having to have Bluetooth on. The time saver is to not have set them and they connect quickly.

    If I remember correctly, the Apple airpods work the same way. You still have to have Bluetooth on or they won't be detected.

    I see..

    Okay, tried it with bluetooth on and theres still no pop up. According to Samsung you need to be on android 7 and above and have Smart Things installed and I have both of that ticked off.

    I get the pop up on my AT&T Note 9 with Pie. Just to be clear you only get the pop on the first initial setup.

    My question has nothing to do with the original post. I just want to know if the sound is good with the buds?

    Yeah I like them better than the Icon X. Plus it's still too early to tell if it'll suffer the same issues I've had with two Icon X were one ear bud will eventually sound lower than the other. I had to pull out the felt like material out of the one bud to make it sound better.

    I am also coming from the Gear Icon X buds. These feel much better and the quality is really great!

    I had my app open when I turned mine on, so no pop-up, but why this is a topic of discussion, no idea. They were super easy to pair and get using.

    The Wearable App is also different than when I had my Icons. I like the way it has more options available from the screen wothoutndigging into menus or anything.

    Comfy. Yes, even more so than the icons, which I loved. Without the onboard storage, when you put them in, they go right to phone mode, not independent, then a delay to phone.

    Sound? They fit better in my ears, so they block out more sound which I like. The Ambient Sound mode is updated and much nicer to control. Sound quality is on par, if not a little better, then the Icon X's. Partially for the better fit, but also just a cleaner sound.

    I have the new Buds as well and agree with all of your comments above. Pairing was super easy with the Note 9, much easier than the Icons.

    A few other differences from the Icon X:

    Swipe for Volume doesn't work (I knew this going in, but didn't think I used it much). You can alter the long-press touch control to adjust volume (left long-press Volume Down, right long-press Volume Up). However, if you do this, you lose the ability to use long-press to bring up voice control (Google/Bixby), which sucks.

    I haven't had any issues with the buds charging in the case like I sometimes did with the Icons. They appear to fit better in the case.

    The case, while much smaller and more pocketable, is also more slippery. So while the Icon would stay in my shorts pocket (yes, I'm in Texas so we wear shorts during the winter!), the Buds case has slipped out of my pockets a few times when sitting. So I have to check each time I get up or else never sit down.

    Also the Icon X case has a release button which doesn't exist on the Buds case. Haven't found that to be an issue yet, but hoping it pop open at inopportune times.

    I love the wireless charging - just plop it down on the charging pad!

    I bought the black Galaxy Buds at a local Samsung store here in Miami. They're an unauthorized Samsung seller. They were charging $140 which was ridiculous but I still got them.

    Thanks for the info. I almost got a pair of Icon X. I'm still waiting for my free Galaxy buds.

    If you look in the Samsung Members app under 'benefits' you should see an offer for 50% off on selected accessories, mainly S10 stuff but the buds are there also.

    Just clicked on them and applied the code and it said the code is not valid for this item lol.
    Makes me think its definitely an S10 promotion.

    I'm in the UK.

    The black versions are out of stock but going from an earlier post the 50% doesn't work for them !

    Maybe I'll pick up a pair as part of a promotion for the Samsung Note 10 !
