  1. Place the earbuds into the charging case. For best results, do not insert earbuds in the charging case if they are wet or dirty.
  2. Close the charging case, and either connect the USB cable as shown, or place the charging case on a wireless charger. The earbuds and charging case are charged simultaneously.

CAUTION

The charging head for plugging the USB cable into a wall outlet is not included. Use only Samsung charging devices rated with an output voltage of 5v and an output current of over 150mA (sold separately). Samsung accessories are designed for your device to maximize battery life. Using other accessories may cause damage, and damage may not be covered by warranty.

While charging, the device and the charger may become hot. This does not affect the device’s lifespan or performance and is in the device’s normal range of operation.

Remove the device from the charger and wait for the device to cool down. For more information, visit https://www.samsung.com/us/support/answer/ANS00076952.

NOTE

Do not disassemble, modify, or repair your device. Placing objects, such as magnetic stripe cards, including credit cards, phone cards, passbooks, and boarding passes, next to the device or charger may cause damage from the charger or device’s magnetic field.

Maintaining water and dust resistance

CAUTION:

To avoid electric shock and damage to your device, do not charge device while it is wet or in an area where it could get wet. Do not handle device, charger or cords with wet hands while charging. The device is not impervious to dust and water damage in any situation. It is important that all compartments are closed tightly.

Follow these tips carefully to prevent damage to the device and maintain dust and water resistance performance:

Water resistant based on IPX7 rating, which means submersion in up to 1 meter of fresh water for up to 30 minutes based on international standard ISO 60529. Not advised for beach or pool use. Charging case is not water resistant. If the earbuds are damaged, they are not guaranteed to be water resistant. If the earbuds or your hands are wet, they must be dried thoroughly prior to handling.

Follow these tips carefully to prevent damage to the device.

Whenever your device gets wet, dry it thoroughly with a clean, soft cloth. Failure to rinse the device in fresh water and dry it as instructed may cause the device to suffer from operability or cosmetic issues.

Do not expose the device to water at high pressure.

If the device is dropped or receives an impact, the water and dust resistant features of the device may be damaged.

Check the charge status

When you connect the earbuds and the charger case the LED indicators flash certain colors to indicate the battery level.

NOTE: You can check the battery level for the case and earbuds in the Galaxy Wearable app. For more information, see Battery level.

Wireless power sharing

Samsung Galaxy Buds2 Pro Featured Img 7

  1. From your phone, enable the Wireless power sharing feature.
  2. With the phone face down, place the compatible device on the back of the phone to charge. A notification sound or vibration occurs when charging begins.

NOTE: Wireless power sharing works with most Qi-Certified devices. Requires minimum 30% battery to share. Speed and power efficiency of charge varies by device. May not work with some accessories, covers, or other manufacturer’s devices. If you have trouble connecting or charging is slow, remove any cover from each device.

For best results when using Wireless power sharing, please note:

  • Remove any accessories or cover before using the feature. Depending on the type of accessory or cover, Wireless power sharing may not work properly.
  • The location of the wireless charging coil may vary by device, so you may need to adjust the placement to make a connection. When charging starts, a notification or vibration will occur, so the notification will help you know you’ve made a connection. During charging, do not move or use either device.
  • Call reception or data services may be affected, depending on your network environment.
  • Charging speed or efficiency can vary depending on device condition or surrounding environment.
  • Do not use headphones.

Attach the ear tip
Before wearing the earbuds, be sure to attach the ear tips. Wearing the earbuds without ear tips may hurt your ears.

  1. Select the ear tip size that best fits your ear.
  2. Hook the ear tip’s groove to the earbud’s fixation hook on one side and gently pull the ear tip to cover the earbud. Do not pull the ear tip excessively when you attach or detach it because it may tear.
  3. Follow the same procedure for the other earbud.

Wear the earbuds
