Galaxy Buds, Galaxy Buds+, and Galaxy Buds Live can reportedly overheat


Last updated: August 24th, 2020 at 09:31 UTC+02:00

The Galaxy Buds+ and the Galaxy Buds Live are among the best truly wireless earphones available today. They feature a simple yet well-fitting design, great sound for their price, and long-lasting battery life. However, they can reportedly overheat in some conditions. Yes, not only smartphones and tablets but even wireless earphones can overheat.

Some users of the Galaxy Buds, Galaxy Buds+, and the Galaxy Buds Live are reporting that using the buds in warmer conditions render them useless in a matter of minutes. The problem appears when Samsung’s wireless earphones are exposed to direct sunlight. Within minutes, the buds reportedly start beeping, and they won’t stop until they’re removed from the sun’s exposure and are allowed to cool down. Moreover, there’s no clear indication or notification within the app when the Galaxy Buds start beeping.

Users claim that this behavior happens when the Galaxy Buds, Galaxy Buds+, and the Galaxy Buds Live are exposed to sunlight in conditions where the temperature is above the 90°F (32.2°C) mark. Many regions around the world are regularly hotter than 90°F in the summer. However, we’ve personally never heard of the overheating problem related to the Galaxy Buds, and some of us live in countries that are usually warm.

Are you facing overheating with your Galaxy Buds, Galaxy Buds+, or Galaxy Buds Live? Let us know your experience in the comments section below.
