If you have a Samsung Galaxy Buds Plus, Galaxy Buds Pro, or any other model of the series, you can use them to connect to a laptop.
This is because they are compatible with most devices that support Bluetooth connectivity, including smartphones, iPhones, computers, and even smartwatches.
To connect buds plus to a laptop, you first have to enable the pairing mode on the earphones. This can be done by opening the case and pressing the touch sensors for a few seconds.

Step 1: Remove the Earbuds from the Case:
You might have to remove your earbuds from the case before you can connect them to a laptop. This is because the earbuds can get dirty, with earwax, oil from your skin, and dried sweat collecting on them.
Cleaning your earbuds every few hours can help prevent these issues from happening. You can wipe off the earbud tips with plain water, soapy water, or rubbing alcohol.
Unlike headphones, which send vibrations up and through your ears, in-ear earbuds play sound directly into your ear canal. This allows you to hear the music more clearly and safely, without hearing any background noise.
To sync your earbuds, place them into the charging case, make sure both LEDs show red, and then remove the earbuds.
Then, press the button on each earbud three times to sync them together. The LEDs will pulse a series of red/blue lights, and then you’ll hear a voice prompt stating “Ready to Pair”.
Step 2: Turn On the Earbuds:
If you’re using your buds plus on a laptop, you can use the touch sensors to turn them on. This will put them in pairing mode, which you can then connect to your computer through Bluetooth.
You should be able to see the buds in your list of devices when you open the Bluetooth menu on your laptop. You can then select them and then click Connect.
This will put them in pairing mode and they should now automatically connect to your laptop when you turn them on again.
When you’re done, the buds should work properly. If they still don’t, you may need to reset the earbuds to their factory settings.
Alternatively, you can turn off the auto-off function and then pair them to your device. This will conserve the battery for future use.
Step 3: Open the Case:
If you are having problems pairing your buds plus with your laptop, you can open the case and try connecting them again. This will reset the Bluetooth modules and should fix any issues you may be facing.
Before you try to connect the buds plus to your laptop, ensure that they are not paired to any other devices. If you have already paired them to a device, unpair them and turn off their Bluetooth.
The Samsung Galaxy Buds Plus are designed to be compatible with a wide range of devices, and they use Bluetooth 5.0 for strong wireless performance.
They support the AAC Bluetooth codec as well as SBC and their own Scalable Codec for enhanced audio quality.
If you are using a laptop running Windows 10 or a MacBook, you can use the Swift pair app to connect your Buds Plus. The app will enable pairing mode and look for nearby devices that have the same setting activated.
Step 4: Press and Hold the Touch Sensors:
In order to connect your buds plus to a laptop, you need to press and hold the touch sensors of your earbuds for around 10 seconds. This will activate the pairing mode.
When you do so, several beeps will come from the earbuds to indicate that they are in pairing mode.
Then, place the case of the earbuds on top of your laptop and open it; you should get an alert on your screen that tells you that your earbuds have been found by your computer.
The Samsung Galaxy Buds Plus are one of the only Bluetooth earbuds that are able to work with a Windows PC, thanks to Microsoft’s Swift Pair.
This means that when you open the case of your earbuds next to your PC, a prompt will show up and ask if you want to pair your earbuds.
This feature is pretty cool, especially if you use a Windows phone or computer with Bluetooth enabled. It also makes pairing these earbuds super fast and easy.
