iFixit, a company known for its tech product teardowns, has dissected Samsungs new Galaxy Buds Live cordless earphones. In spite of not formally calling them Galaxy Beans, the word “bean” is actually printed inside each earbud– which reveals that at one point or another, the company was completely calling these earbuds the vegetables they resemble.
Comparing to other wireless earbuds like Apples AirPods Pro, iFixit explain the Galaxy Buds Live are not tough to pry open, and actually some of the simplest buds theyve ever dissected. Inside, you can plainly see “bean left” and “bean right” on the cable television that links the 2 halves of each earbud.
iFixit likewise discovered that the battery is a standard size and not too difficult to change, however you will need to carefully raise up the glued motorist before you can pull the battery out. The Galaxy Buds Live uses a 3.7 v CP1254 lithium-ion battery, a button battery thats, regrettably, hard to find online, according to iFixit.
iFixit likewise discovered in the teardown that the Galaxy Buds Lives cordless charging case consists of a 1.81 Wh battery, which it states is “significantly bigger than” the batteries discovered in wireless charging cases for both the Galaxy Buds and Buds Plus– that makes sense given Samsungs battery life claims. The company says that the Galaxy Buds Live includes as much as 29 hours of battery life when both the earbuds and charging case are completely charged, compared to 13 hours for the Galaxy Buds and 22 hours for the Galaxy Buds Plus.
The company granted Samsungs newest wireless earbuds with an eight out of 10 in repairability. Thats not surprising considering previous Galaxy Buds were some of the more repairable wireless earbuds iFixit had actually seen.
