Now, I'm a Samsung FanBoy through-and-through, that being said, I think Samsung took a couple of steps backwards on a few things comparatively. The gestures are essentially the same as the previous gen except they got rid of swiping up and down on the earbuds for volume control. It's not the biggest deal since you can still set up the earbuds to give you volume control (based on long presses of each earbud) but now you have to choose between being able to control the volume from the earbuds or triggering ambient sound or voice commands, you cannot do both (from the earbuds at least), and that's kinda lame. Additionally, it seems like they've weakened the capability of Ambient Sound? On the previous gen I REALLY felt like I could hear my surroundings, within at least a ~10-15ft radius when Ambient Sound was active. With the Galaxy Buds that listening-radius feels significantly abbreviated for some reason? Additionally, most likely in the interest of shrinking the form factor, the Galaxy Buds no longer have their own onboard storage, so you can not store music on the buds themselves. That feature was super useful when you wanted to go for a run or workout but didn't necessarily want to have to bring your phone, fortunately not having it isn't a deal-breaker by any means.
I feel like these decisions might have been driven by the desire for more people to download Samsung's Galaxy Wear app, which is fine as a companion app. I feel as though with the Gear Icon X 2018s the goal was to help you not have to rely on your phone very much, if at all, where as the Galaxy Buds definitely make your phone a bit more necessary.
In summation, they're awesome wireless earbuds! They sound great, they look great, they're compact, wirelessly chargeable, LOUD, comfortable, and not uber expensive! Personally, I love features and options. Even if I'm not particularly going to use something often, I still prefer to have the option just in case and I would say objectively speaking, compared to the Gear Icon X 2018s, your options are definitely a bit lessened with these guys.
Upgrade worthy? Ehhhh, if you're like me and prefer options and the Gear Icon X 2018s fit you comfortably then I would say you're not missing out on anything more than a slightly modified design. If that's worth an upgrade to you, go for it! If not, I think your Gear Icon X 2018s are worth hanging onto for a while longer! Lastly, if you're new to the wireless earbud game, for $130 these are definitely a solid contender, especially considering the competition. Would recommend!
MAKE SURE HAVE THE RIGHT TIPS IN AND HAVE THEM AS DEEP AS POSSIBLE FOR OPTIMAL SOUND QUALITY
SUPER EASY SETUP: on my s9+, just make sure you have the samsung wearables app. Auto connects when case opens if you have bluetooth on.
AMBIENT NOISE: mode is kind of weird, probably not best in class but could be improved through software update. But you could definitley hear cars and loud voices if you have ambient mode turned up (only works when you have both buds in ears) There is an update you need to install when you connect for the first time that takes about 2 minutes.
3 different size buds and fins included. Wireless charging works on highpower and low power charging mats not just on the back of an s10 device, usbC charging also available.
Tiny wireless charging case, weak magnets hold the buds in and guide them to the charging pins, you can shake the buds out if you have the case open, stronger magnets hold the case closed in your pocket, good and solid clicky case, satisfying to open and close.
CUSTOMIZATION: You can customize the "long press" on the touch pads to turn volume up and down, turn on ambient mode or activate the digital assistant of your choice.
UI: No buttons, just a touch pad that is very responsive and it has sensors to know if they are in your ear and the touchpad doesnt work unless they are in your ear so you wont accidentally change your music when you take them out. Touchpad can be impeaded by hair over your ear. These buds and the case are tiny, you could probably hide them if you have long hair. Be sure you like tight fitting in-ear buds, everyones ears are different.
SOUND: If you arent an audiophile they are great, I personally dont see much of a difference in any earbuds no matter the price, they do sound alot better the deeper into your ear you can put them. They dont seem to get ear bursting loud but they do get very loud, good bass punch.
No onboard storage like the iconx.
BATTERY: I have not ran them to their limits yet but while using just one bud I listened to 5.5 hours of podcast (mostly voice) at about 35% volume and after the 5.5 hours the bud still had 40% battery left. When that ones battery runs out you can switch to the other by just picking it up and putting the other one in the case to charge.
INSTANT PAIRING: when you open the case and have bluetooth on they connect in less than 10 seconds, I have not had the little pop up window show up like in the ads but they instantly connect when you have bluetooth on.
Great purchase if you like in-ear style buds, kind of like ear plugs. Most features only available on Android, Samsung phones apparently work best though, Iphone works with basic features and siri.
