I, like so many others, am having severe issues with my ears after wearing my Buds Pro. I awoke this morning at 3:30 with very wet ears. They also are very itchy.

This is the second time this has happened. The first time I had the same symptoms. But, after my ears began to heal, the flaking and extreme itching began. I noticed it began not long after wearing them. I discontinued use.

Last night, I wanted to try again. I wiped down the silicone tips with alcohol. I wore them for roughly 10 minutes and here we are. Wide awake on a work day with awful symptoms.

I own multiple Samsung devices. My televisions (2), 4K UHD Bluray, sound bar and surround sound, phones, tablets and I just bought the Galaxy Book Go. I love that I can connect everything. Needless to say, I am disappointed in the Buds.

What can be done to make this right? Thank you.

Has anyone got a resolution to their allergic reaction issues? Replacing with foam pads did not work for me. I have unfortunately sent my buds in to a facility in a box after calling the customer service line. It's been more than a month now and all I'm hearing back when I call to check up on my ticket is that they need to re-escalate it to corporate which I've already requested multiple times now.

Pretty frustrating then. I am past 25 days now when I sent mine and was delivered to samsung on June 14th. I don't even get email notifications or phone calls from them unless I directly message so no idea what the progress is.

  • I am experiencing an allergic reaction to my galaxy buds pro.  This is causing severe irritation to my ears that is causing my ear to itch,  scab up,  and a liquid discharge coming from my ears.  I noticed several people are experiencing the same issue.  Can something be done,  or can I get a refund for my purchase?

Yes, I've seen several posts here regarding this or similar issues. Check the return policy of the seller where you purchased the buds, then contact them.

May I ask how many hours did you wear them in your ears before you noticed the itching?
