Samsung has become popular in the wearable space with its fitness band and wireless earbuds. The company has launched the Galaxy Buds, Buds + and the Buds Live coming in this year. But new reports suggest an alarming issue with these devices. Users have reportedly pointed out the hearables are heating up to unbearable level and they start beeping once exposed to direct sunlight.
Both these incidents are related to each other, and it’s likely the earbuds beep when they start overheating. One of the user mentioned in their post that the beeping stops when they are using the Buds in cloudy or dark conditions. So, the heating has probably got to do know with hardware issue. Samsung is yet to comment on the issue, and we’re hoping the company will reach out to these users with a possible solution, if any.

Galaxy Buds do compete in the same market as the Apple AirPods, and the last thing you’d want is hardware issue. And the trouble is, the heating is usually attributed to the mechanics inside the device. So we’re not sure if a software update can fix it. Because, if that’s the case then Samsung should look to release that at the earliest.
