Hello,

Imagine you went out for a while (for jogging, shopping, short trip etc.) with buds without taking case with you, you are done with buds and want to turn them off to save battery. Or you done with buds and just want to put it on table not into case to prevent starting a new recharging cycle which would reduce battery life faster.  Simply you cant do it 😮 Isnt this stupid? It must be turned off manually or at least turn off automatically after idling couple minutes. I believe Samsung tech guys can bring this feature with a firmware update. Hope they will..

If you power off earbuds with firmware, how would you power them back on? Firmware again? Well then they would have to be listening for the turn on signal. Which they are already doing now, but on the Bluetooth signal.
What do you think?

I think you misunderstood it. There must be a turn off/on feature for the buds like holding touchpad for 5 seconds or from wearable app. Otherwise, if you dont put buds to case, it keeps running and drains battery. This feature is a basic one and can be added with a software update. Hope samsung guys will add it soon.

@abc_34: I appreciate your viewpoint. I think it is important to keep the case with you while you are using your Buds, as it helps to keep them safe, ensures they're charged and ready for use next time you use them, and reduces the risk of misplacing them.

If you dont put buds to case, they will keep running even not connected and drain battery unnecessarily. If you put them into charger every time after you are done using your buds for a short time, it will degrade buds and case life faster than otherwise.

 

Samsung should bring turn on/off buds independently feature asap. It's just a matter of software update, not that hard.
