Samsung app confirms the Galaxy Buds Live will feature active noise cancellation

Samsung has an event coming up on August 5th, and we already know the company plans to announce 5 devices. It’s widely assumed that one of those “devices” will be the Galaxy Buds Live (lovingly nicknamed “Beans”). The Buds Live has leaked numerous times, but now Samsung itself has confirmed a few details in the Galaxy Buds companion app.

We first saw the Galaxy Buds Live (then thought to be the “Galaxy BudsX”) back in April. Since then, we’ve been treated to numerous leaked renders of the earbuds in several colors. This isn’t even the first time we’ve gleamed information from an official Samsung app. However, the most recent “leak” is a pretty big slip-up from Samsung.


The Samsung Galaxy Buds Live companion app is now live in the Google Play Store. This firmly confirms the name of the earbuds, and it also solidifies the rumors of active noise cancellation support. We’ve expected the Buds Live to support ANC from the beginning, but now we can actually see the option in the Settings to enable or disable the feature.

The app gives us a few more details about the Galaxy Buds Live as well. There’s a screen with instructions on how to put them in your ear, a Bluetooth connection tutorial, equalizer options, touch control settings, and a “Find My Earbuds” tool. The equalizer can be tuned to “normal, bass boost, soft, dynamic, clear,” or “treble boost.” Touch controls include the ability to block touches and customize the touch and hold gesture.

If we didn’t have enough confirmation about the Galaxy Buds Live before, we certainly do now. Tune in to Galaxy Unpacked on August 5th to see the full reveal.
