I just recieved my Galaxy Buds Live today, and when going on a walk i decided to bring them along. 

Once i put my phone (Galaxy 9+) In my pocket the buds became choppy like I was out of range, also the sound started sounding metallic like they were being stretched. 

This has happened with some knockoff pair of buds called Arbily, which is why i switched and bought the new Buds Live.

 

This only happens outside, once i leave my house. I have turned my phone Wifi off just incase this has some thing to do with it and the issue still occurs. 

 

I have unpaired the buds via the Wearable app and repaired. Same issue.

I have ensured all updates are up to date on the wearable for the buds. 

I have unpaired my actual bluetooth connection and the same issue occurs. 

I have repaired the buds with a Ipad 7, and the connectivity is perfect. 

 

What could be happening with my S9+ to encounter such an issue?

Hope you are doing well, my friend!

Sorry to hear about this issue with interference:

Does the guide here help? https://www.samsung.com/us/support/troubleshooting/TSG01111318/

 

I own the Buds Live and don't have this issue on my S20 Ultra. Perhaps you have a bad pair and need a warranty exchange?

I have the same issue with my Galaxy Note 9. 

These are pretty much worthless if I can't have my phone in my pocket.

Mine do the same thing with my S9+. I exchanged them and they still do it. I love the fit, sound and design but this is a real issue.

I have the same issue with my buds, but only while on calls, such as phone calls or discord calls. The problem seems to go away when only listening to media. I don't know if the issue is the same for you.

Did you resolve this. I have the EXACT same problem. Calls have like a 1/10 second of delay on right buds but music is fine
