Frequently Asked Questions
Can I connect the Galaxy Buds to my Mac, and do they work well?
Yes, all Samsung or Galaxy buds can be connected to your Mac, as it only requires Bluetooth access. But it’s harder to connect these earbuds to a MacBook than to connect them to a Samsung phone or TV. Every company makes connecting their devices to their products simple. Apart from that, they perform better and have more features when used with the same product line.
How do I put my Galaxy Buds into pairing mode?
To put Samsung earbuds into pairing mode, place them inside the case, close the lid for a few seconds, open the case again, and your earbuds will enter pairing mode.
Why won’t my Mac find my Galaxy Buds?
The most common cause of your Mac not finding your Samsung earbuds is a pairing problem. In most cases, disconnecting your Buds from your Bluetooth device and resetting your Galaxy earbuds should resolve the issue. In other cases, cleaning the charging pins in the casing should solve the problem.
Why is just one of my Galaxy Buds working with my Mac?
If only one of your Samsung earbuds is working, you should ensure that both sides are fully charged. This problem usually occurs when the connections are not properly positioned within the casing. Also, if dirt or debris obstructs proper contact, clean the charging space on the earphones and the inside of the case.
