Unable to pair Galaxy Buds with MacBook Pro running macOS Big Sur

Hi,  I'm trying to pair my Galaxy Buds with my Macbook Pro running macOS Big Sur without success.

I just downloaded GalaxyBudsManager_2.1.201015.51, but I was not able to complete the installation due to an error.

How can I complete the installation to start using my Buds with my MBP?

I had the same problem. What I ended up having to do was the following.

  1. Disconnect them from my phone (I just turned off my Bluetooth on my phone temporarily)
  2. Place the buds in my ears.
  3. Touch and hold both of the buds until I hear a beeping noise.
  4. They would then show up in my Mac OSX bluetooth devices to pair. Pair them.
  5. Once they are paired, I then turned back on my bluetooth from my phone.

It also seems to go back and forth pretty well now. I just select in the dropdown on my mac the buds and it will disconnect from my phone and work on my computer. Same thing from computer to mac. I was about to return these to the store, but this saved me from that. Hope this helps.

Hi! Same problem. Macbook pro 2020 (Intel chip)/BigSur.

After pairing via bluetooth have 'normal' sound, but after switching input device to the Buds+ I got very bad sound from speakers and microphone...
After downloading and installing 'Galaxy Buds Manager' had Failed.
I think problem is in requirements in the installation (Mac had to have USB 2.0), isn't it ?
*****, I thought thats really good stuff before I got this one.

I don't have USB 2.0 in my MacBook Pro (13-inch, 2018, Four Thunderbolt 3 Ports) but i can't find the device with bluetooth either.

Same for me. I spoke to Samsung support and they said the Buds don't work with Macbook. But the information everywhere looks like they used to. Very pissed off.
