The Samsung Galaxy Buds2 are the newest true wireless earbuds from the house of Samsung. And like their predecessors, these two earbuds also pack a punch. You get a wide soundstage, a touch-sensitive surface, and above all, a slim and sleek design. The good thing is that these buds can be connected to a PC, iPhone or your Galaxy Watch 4 smartwatch, other than your Samsung smartphone.

Nevertheless, if you want to connect the Samsung Galaxy Buds2 to your Windows PC, iPhone, and other devices, here's how to go about it. Let's get started.

How to Pair the Galaxy Buds2 With Your Windows PC or Desktop

As we noted above, connecting the Galaxy Buds2 with the Windows PC is a straightforward process. And if you have a Windows Swift Pair setup, you needn't go through the hassle of doing a separate setup (more on that later).

Step 1: First, reset the buds. Open the case, and press & hold the touch-sensitive area for about 10-15 seconds. Next, put them on your ear, and you'll hear a series of beeps.

Step 2: Open your Windows 10 PC (Win Key + I), navigate to Devices > Bluetooth & other devices and click on Add Bluetooth or other devices.
