Are Samsung Galaxy Buds waterproof? Can I use them in the shower?

Galaxy Buds are not water resistant and not suitable for use in water, so avoid using them in the rain or letting water splash on them. If they do come in contact with water, quickly wipe them with a soft fabric to get them dry as fast as possible.
