Galaxy Buds Pro Infection

Hi,

 

I bought the Galaxy Buds Pro in Switzerland last November and have been using since. After about a month of use, ear infections started occuring in both my ears and also at the onset of ear canal. This includes reddish skin, liquid spill and skin flakes. In spite of trying number of times, it kept on coming back to the point I can't use them anymore for health reasons.

 

 

 

This issue has been widely reported in the press, samsung us community, reditt among others. Not sure what is Samsung's official response on this one. I don't want to speculate but certain media reports noted that use of nickel in the buds facing ear is the source of skin irritation and infection which may or may not be correct. However, bottomline is galaxy buds pro initiate allergic reaction to ears for a certain group of users unfortunately.

Does anyone know how do I get in touch with a mod for Switzerland ?

Cheers Andrew. I tried to speak to the chat but unfortunately they don't speak English, so got advised to drop an email to service centre. 

 

Let's see how it pans out.

I've recently been experiencing the same problem. My ears feel wet when in use and the next day crust over and are painful 🤷 Can anyone at Samsung advise what I am supposed to do as my previous Galaxy Buds + I never had this problem
