New Galaxy Buds update continues to improve Bluetooth connectivity

Samsung is rolling out a new software update for the Galaxy Buds. The package weighs only 1.38MB and it’s identified as software version R170XXU0ASJ2. This is a fairly minor update, but one that should be very welcomed thanks to its improvements to Bluetooth connectivity.

The changelog mentions “Stabilized Bluetooth connection through added fixes” and, indeed, we can confirm that the connection is now more stable.

Galaxy Buds Bluetooth connectivity continues to get better

The Galaxy Buds experience has been improving at a steady pace ever since the wearable was introduced to the market earlier this year. Bluetooth connectivity has been one of the main areas of improvement, with connection dropouts becoming less frequent as time went on. The Buds have received at least a couple of Bluetooth-related updates so far.

That’s not to say that the Galaxy Buds needed firmware updates to become good. They were already pretty solid, and about three months ago Consumer Reports praised the product with an “excellent” rating in the sound quality category.

As usual, Galaxy Buds owners can grab the latest update by pairing the wearables to their smartphones. Users should then receive a notification about the update and download the firmware through the Galaxy Wearable app.

I recently bought Buds, and i was amazed by sound from Deezer Music app, also, i did not notice once in Youtube that sound comes late, thats perfect, but i play games a lot, i play PUBG Mobile, and there i can hear about 1second after something happens, it is too much, for a game, so i have to play it on wired headphones

I hope they will fix that through this or next update

if you have a samsung phone there shouldn’t be any lag since they use the scalable samsung codec. if you have another android device, try going into developer setitngs and change the bluetooth audio codec to AAC and see if that fixes the lag. this is what i had to do on my Mac since SBC was giving me really poor lag and quality.

That’s pretty common for bluetooth headphones/earphone for the latency. That’s why I couldn’t switch to BT earphone and still using my wired earphone in my Galaxy Note8. Shame for Samsung for removing the headphone jack.

Shame to you for making yourself an ox. With the cable nowadays it has to be so convenient: D Just good that Jack removed, I hope they continue this one.

I’m afraid to do it, so my connection is good since the last update. I never had a single micro cut with note 10+

Nothing has changed in some places just blackouts are still.
