I took both of the buds out of the case but the left one did not want to connect with my phone and every time i would put it in the case it would say it needs to charge even if i leave for two hours or more i have no idea why it started and i could use some help.
Thank you for reaching out, I can understand wanting to use both buds at the same time. I have some troubleshooting we can do to see if we can alleviate the symptoms.
First, navigate to and open the Galaxy Wearable app on your phone.
For the Galaxy Buds or Buds+, tap About earbuds. Tap Reset earbuds, and then tap Reset to confirm.
If that does not help to get the buds to connect, give the next troubleshooting steps a try.
Go to Setting > Connections > Bluetooth and un-pair the buds from there
Next, go to the Wearable's app and un-pair the device
Then uninstall and reinstall the Wearable's app
Once reinstalled reconnect the buds while they are plugged up by the power cord that came with them in the box.
When in the cradle tap and hold down on the touchpads until the light flashes green.
Let me know if this helped!

In this case your best option would be to contact samsung directly as their are no service center that will physically service the Ear buds onsite these items are usually shipped out with proof purchase or further inspection down below i have attached a link

Yesterday my left earbud stopped connecting,ive tried resetting them 2 times,ive tried charging them,ive tried disconnecting and reconnecting my bluetooth and nothings working,anyone got a fix?
I am sorry you have tried all the troubleshooting steps to get this issue solved with your buds and the problem is still re-ocurring.
My suggestion is to call 1800-SAMSUNG (1800-726-7864). Once you call them, try to reach a representative and have the valid proof of purchase handy and the serial number of the device. Let them know you want to mail in the buds for service and they will email you a UPS shipping label and give you the proper instructions on how to do this process. It typically takes 7-14 business days for you to receive them back. The serial number and the proof of purchase is typically what is needed as long as the device was purchased less than a year ago.
If you have any questions, please let us know.
After a month of flawless work, left earbud suddenly became unresponsive. Buds were working fine, placed in the charging case after use, on the next use left bud did not come alive after being taken out of the case.
- The bud does not show up in the galaxy wear app - it is drawn, but no battery status is shown. Right bud and case appeared normally.
- The touch panel on the bud is not responsive - it is not making any sound and not eating to presses.
- When placed in the charging case, red changing LED shows up, and turns green after a while.
Following a suggestion on this forum, I have reset the buds (no change), then tried to remove and re-add the buds to the app. After removal, buds are no longer detectable by the Wear app or by the phones' Bluetooth.
A non-samsung phone was able to find the right bud and make music play out of it, but left bud is still not working.
Please advise on how to proceed.
