The Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro was a hit as soon as they got into the hands of users. But not everyone was feeling the love from their new earbuds. Some are getting painful ear infections ...
After the initial cleaning, I popped them into my ear and paired the Galaxy Buds Pro with my Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2. I tweaked a few settings and listened to a few of my favorite songs before placing the earbuds back into the charging case so I could get back to work. The initial audio test lasted about 15 - 20 minutes, and I came away impressed with the audio quality and the comfort of the earbuds — it all went downhill after that.
That same evening my ears were a little itchy, but I didn't think anything of it. Full disclaimer, I had never had any ear infection issues before, so I didn't know what symptoms to be aware of. I woke up the following day with wet ears and some crust on them — both gross and uncomfortable. I wasn't in any real pain, but I wasn't a fan of how my ears felt. I abstained from putting anything in my ears and took care of them to get the mess cleared up ASAP. After about a week, the drainage was gone — as were the crusty bits — and so was any inflammation.
Material choice issue, or something else, has anyone on here had this issue?
This is the first time I read an article and got the hee·bie-jee·bies reading an article. Me personally, I am allergic to long skin exposure to metals, so I know that body contact with objects can cause issues, but this sounds like a more critical issue.
I am hoping the pixel buds that are being sent to me don't cause me to have any type of reaction, but before this article, I never considered a set of buds or other in-ear accessories to cause some type of reaction for me.
