Samsung Gear IconX Earbuds Review 2017

Technology can help you get in shape with different bracelets, smart watches or bands that are placed on your chest, but how would you integrate similar functions into a headset? This is precisely what the Samsung Gear IconX offers.

Samsung is not the first company to try to add intelligence to hearing aids, but IconXs look and feel great, and promise to have features that many active people could enjoy. In addition, they are fully wireless – each hearing aid is separate from the other, but the two are synchronized to provide a stereo experience.

In addition, the Gear IconX have sensors to take your heart rate while you use them and have 4GB of internal storage that allows you to store music to play without having to charge another device when you exercise.

But Gear IconX headphones can also connect to the new Samsung Gear Fit 2 wristband or to your cell phone to play music you have stored on those devices or, for example, you can stream music from your cell phone using Spotify or another service.

Gear IconX also has sensors that allow you to calculate the distance and speed you travel when you are running, and integrate a voice guidance system that tells you, for example, when you reach a mile of travel.

Since the headset does not have a screen so you can visualize your performance and physical activity history, Gear IconX syncs with the Samsung S Health app so you have all your information stored there. Even if you have the Gear Fit 2 or the Gear S2, you can synchronize all information with S Health to provide greater precision in the data and without duplicating them.

In addition, Gear IconX hearing aids can be synchronized with other apps, such as Endomondo, Runkeeper, MapMyRun and Strava. Hearing aids can also sync your information with devices running Android 4.4 or higher.

Gear IconX also has a sound canceling system to give you a good experience when listening to music. The headphones also integrate an ambient mode that allows outside noise to enter so you can stay alert when you are running down the street.

As if this were not enough, the Gear IconX also includes a microphone to make calls or answer them by simply touching the outside of one of the hearing aids. In addition, the outside of the headset also functions as a touchpad that allows you to turn up / down the volume, skip songs and pause or play music by simply swiping your finger or tapping on the outside of one of the headphones.

The headphones have a carrying case where you can recharge the hearing aids by placing them inside. Samsung ensures that this can offer up to two additional full loads.

How long does the hearing aid battery last? Samsung says Gear IconX can last up to 3.5 hours of use by taking all physical activity measurements while listening to music that is stored internally. If you use Gear IconX as a Bluetooth headset to stream music, Samsung ensures that the headset give about an hour and a half battery.

Price and availability

Samsung Gear IconX hearing aids will be available in three colors (white, black or blue) in the third quarter of the year for $199. But if you can’t afford them you should check out these reviews of earbuds and they’re under $50.

First impression

The Samsung Gear IconX promise a lot. Although not the only ones of its kind on the market, the features they integrate and their design make them one of the most attractive and advanced you could consider today. In addition, although they are not economical, their price of US $ 199 does not make them too expensive for what they offer.

During the time I could try them, I found they are really light and comfortable, but the main concern is the battery life which, while adequate for such a small device, can prove to be a problem for people who exercise For extended periods of time.
