Samsung’s new wireless earbuds, the Galaxy Buds Live, are getting a firmware update to version R180XXU0ATH2. The update weighs a little over 2MB and the changelog is scarce but mentions improved system stability. Either way, it doesn’t seem like the update brings any improvements to audio quality or ANC, and we might have to wait a little while longer before Samsung pushes more meaningful changes to the new earbuds.
That’s not to say the Galaxy Buds Live don’t provide a good audio experience. They actually perform very well, with the exception of Active Noise Cancelling which leaves something to be desired. You can read more about these characteristics in our full Galaxy Buds Live review, but in any case, system stability improvements are always welcomed so if you happen to own Samsung’s new earbuds then you should download firmware version R180XXU0ATH2 as soon as it’s available to you.
As always, you can verify if the new update is available to you by launching the Galaxy Wearable app on your connected smartphone, navigating to Earbuds software update and tapping Download and install. Feel free to let us know in the comment section if you’ve noticed any other changes to the Galaxy Buds Live experience after this recent update.
