Received my free Galaxy Buds today (claim verified 14 March, delivered 9 April).

Paired succcessfully with S10+ and listened to music on the Buds.  All is good.

Looking how to pair with my MacBook Air.  In the Bluetooth section on the MacBook Air it does show the Buds while searching.  I have also turned BlueTooth off then on, etc. but that doesn't acheive anything.  I can't see any switch/button on the Buds or case to toogle identification. 

 

Previously, I have successfully paired my MacBook Air with my S10+.

 

Can I use the Buds to listen to music, streaming, podcasts, etc. on my MacBook Air? If so, can someone explain how this is achieved?

In answer to my own question I did some more research and there is a download for the Mac (which can be found on this community site under Support).  I downloaded this to my MacBook Air and it prompts you for the Buds it finds and then pairs.  All working well.  Shame the instructions weren't likewise.

Have you tried pairing by holding your fingers on both touchpads(while in your ears) to connect to the MacBook?

Try to disconet or turn off your mobile first and then start GalaxyBudsManager a BT pairing proces again. (it is work for me - Macbook Air, S10+)
