Experience the Active noise canceling feature

If you would like to listen to music or want to stay away from a noisy environment, use the Active Noise Canceling feature on your Galaxy Buds Live. You can block out the external noisy sounds around you and be able to concentrate on and there’s no need to raise the volume.

Use Active Noise Canceling when you want to avoid distractions, such as when listening to music. Inside Galaxy Buds Live are AKG tuned speakers that are specifically made to play it all. While the air duct lets air vent easily, so you can feel the vibration in every beat.

With ANC for open type, there is less noise. Now, you can focus better on what you’re hearing. ANC filters low-pitched sound, but allows high-pitched sounds like human voices.

Note: If the microphone and its area (the outer microphone while wearing the earbuds) are covered completely, feedback may occur when launching the Active noise canceling feature.

Simple tap-and-hold controls

Users can reduce unnecessary disturbances while letting the important stuff through with single-touch controls. Simply touch and hold for a second. Then Active noise canceling will activate and blocks out the external sounds around you. If you want to deactivate the function, try once more to touch and hold your Galaxy Buds Live for a while again.

Note: To launch the feature with the earbuds, make sure that the preset touch-and-hold feature is set to active noise canceling, and then touch and hold the earbud.
