Highlight – The Samsung Gear IconX earbuds are the perfect gym companion
Back at the start of June, Samsung held an event in New York where they unveiled a number of products. For the more audio-focused consumers, the one product that most likely stood out was the Samsung Gear IconX earbuds. These are not just Samsung earphones, but are actually ones which make use of a ‘true’ wireless experience which essentially means they are absent of all cables. You just have two earbuds and that’s it. Although that wire-free experience from Samsung does come at a price as these earbuds do come with a full retail cost of $199.99.
The Samsung Gear IconX are earbuds which offer a frequency range of 20 – 20 kHz, a sensitivity of 89.5 dB and operate on a 16 ohm impedance. Although these earphones are able to establish a connection with a device over Bluetooth (version 4.1), they are also earphones which come with their own 4GB internal storage included. An amount of storage which Samsung state is able to accommodate up to 1000 audio tracks. Additional features on offer including a splash-resistant P2i nano coating, various sensors (including a hear rate monitor and accelerometer) and an internal 47 mAh battery. Audio file support extends to MP3, M4A, AAC, WAV, WMA (WMA v9) and each earbud measures 18.9 mm by 26.4 mm by 26.0 mm
