Experience the Active noise canceling feature

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.

Then Active noise canceling will activate and blocks out the external sounds around you.
