Nice little article about Samsung Buds. Unfortunately, I was able to pair mine the first time, then I had to roll back my os as it was a new laptop. When I went to pair again….no dice. Can’t determine what is causing this. Very odd.
You can try the following fixes if you can’t connect your Samsung Galaxy Buds to your laptop:
1. Use your phone’s settings to disconnect/forget the earbuds.
2. Install the most recent Bluetooth driver.
3. Factory reset your Samsung earbuds. To do that, open the Galaxy Wearable app and tap Watch settings, then tap Reset.
