This is frustrating and concerning! I wore my Galaxy buds pro (purchased May 16) for an hour and had to remove them due to itching/burning sensation followed by wet fluid discharge, and eventually drying/crusting/irritation in my ear canal. After a few weeks using "over the ear" headphones, things cleared up, and today (June 1) I wore the ear bud pros for the second time for an hour while doing yardwork... and you guessed it... I'm sitting here with itchy, burning, wet ears, literally "dripping" fluid. This is a major problem (and health risk.) This needs to be addressed and resolved.

Yes! I am a fan of Samsung products, and recently (May 16) purchased a pair of Galaxy buds pro. I wore them for about 2 hours while doing some things around the house, and when I removed, them, I had a burning, itching sensation that was very uncomfortable. Later that evening, I notice that in addition to the irritation, the inside of my ear canals were wet. The itching continued for 2 days, and then they started to dry, but not in a good way. My ear canals were coated with a dry crust, similar to how other mucus membranes react to an allergen (think crusty nostrils... sorry for the graphic description, but it's accurate.) After about a week, my ears returned to normal. I switched to using my "ear can" headphones and everything seemed to be back to normal... until today. (June 1.) I decided to wear my Galaxy ear buds pro while mowing the lawn, and an hour later... you guessed it... I had to remove them due to irritation and itch. Now, I sit here writing this with itchy, irritated, and now wet ear canals that are literally dripping fluid. This is definitely a result of the ear buds! The reaction both times was instantaneous. Note: I have no other allergic ear/nose/throat issues. The only two times in my adult life (I am 57 years old) that I have ever had this issue is after wearing these earbuds for an hour. Samsung... you need to fix this issue.
