iFixit gives Samsung Galaxy Buds Live a higher score than Galaxy Buds+

All things considered, the Buds Live seem fairly easy to repair

The repair experts over at iFixit have conducted a teardown of Samsung’s new Galaxy Buds Live, and they’ve come away quite positive.

In a new video, iFixit’s Taylor Dixon gave the new buds a repairability score of 8, citing “simple opening procedure, “impressively modular construction” and “easily replaceable batteries.” For context, Samsung’s Galaxy Buds+ scored a 7 from iFixit, while the AirPods Pro garnered a score of 0.

In the video, Dixon is able to rather easily open up each of the bean-shaped buds with a Phillips screw and some bracket clips. Notably, Samsung hasn’t applied much adhesive to the buds, which is normally troublesome for repair shops.

The Samsung Galaxy Buds Live launched in Canada last week at a cost of $249 CAD on Samsung’s website. The buds will be available in stores starting August 21st.
