Samsung Gear IconX 2018 review

 

Falls short of an Icon

Onboard storage ; Better battery life

Average audio quality ; Poor iOS compatibility ; Overly snug fit

While the Gear IconX 2018 brings better battery life than its predecessor, it still has problems that prevent it from being a truly outstanding audio product. The Samsung Gear IconX 2018 is an improvement on battery life compared to what Samsung had...

Samsung Gear IconX 2018 review

 

Samsung beat Apple to the punch when it unveiled its first "truly wireless" headphones back in June 2016, six months before the now-iconic AirPods . And unlike Apple, Samsung's original Gear IconX headphones included heart-rate monitoring, too. But...

Samsung's Gear Icon X 2018 is a small, comfortable-to-wear, totally wireless earphone that has improved battery life and a smaller charging case than the previous model's. They fit discreetly, sound decent for this type of headphone, and have touch...

Some of the features don't work with iOS devices; touch controls are a bit hit or miss.

Samsung has improved the second-generation Gear Icon X to become one of the better totally wireless headphones, especially for Galaxy phone owners.

Samsung Gear IconX (2018)

 

Samsung's second-gen IconX wireless earbuds are some of the best about, but in a young market they are not perfect. Here's our full review of the fitness-focussed headphones

Samsung Gear IconX 2018 review

  (Rating Hidden)

The Gear IconX headphones are Samsung's latest stab at high-end cordless earbuds, following up last year's product of the same name. They promise to improve on areas such as battery life and sound, as well as introducing new features. Can Samsung make...

Samsung Gear IconX 2018 review

 

Longer battery life and new features nudge Samsung's next-gen IconX forward.

Light and durable design ; Onboard music storage great for runners ; Feature packed (especially for Android users) ; Five-hour battery triples previous model ; Clear, relatively detailed midrange

Charging case offers only one charge ; Some functionality still buggy ; Stereo channels wobbly over Bluetooth ; Fit not particularly comfortable

These wireless buds are decent, but there's still room for improvement.

Samsung Gear IconX (2018) review: hitting the sweet spot

 

A well-rounded pair of truly wireless earbuds

Great sound ; Bountiful battery life ; Useful run tracking features

You lose some features on other phones ; Tricky touch interface ; Occasional audio dropouts

The new IconX are good enough to encourage such heavy use in a way that the original pair never did. They may not have the kind of magic touches of something like AirPods’ instant and effortless pairing, or the rich sound of the Bose SoundSport Free,...

Samsung Gear IconX 2018

 

With the Gear IconX 2018, Samsung improves its fitness-focused wire-free earphones with smarter fitness coaching and longer battery life, but loses heart rate monitoring in the process.

Automatically tracks running. Built-in coaching feature. 8GB of onboard storage. Relatively long battery life.

No heart rate monitoring. Some fitness features not available on iOS.

As far as fitness earphones go, the Gear IconX 2018 are a pretty hefty investment at $200—especially since you can get our Editors' Choice JLab Epic Air for $50 less. But they do pack some advanced features, including Bixby integration for Samsung...

Samsung Gear IconX (2018) Review

 

Calling Bluetooth earbuds "cordless" when they still have a cord connecting them always seemed like a cheat to me, so I had high hopes for the Samsung Gear IconX 2018 edition . Revamping the original wire-free earbuds of last year with more battery...

Battery life now equals AirPods ; Solid sound quality ; Ear-clinging fit ; Onboard fitness coach can be useful

Battery case is chunkier than AirPods' case ; Heart rate sensor has been sacrificed ; Local music storage of limited use
