Samsung Gear Icon X review


Samsung hops aboard the all-wireless train with mixed results

Stunning design ; Onboard storage ; Compatible with iOS ; Super snug fit

Sound quality isn't stellar ; Short battery life ; Expensive

If you're looking to cut the cord and step onto the treadmill, Samsung's Gear Icon X are a fully-featured and comfortable, albeit flawed solution.

The Samsung Gear IconX headphones are an unusual pair. They're wireless Bluetooth in-ear headphones that are designed with exercise in mind and have built-in fitness tracking features. It's an interesting combination of two different products, but how...

Samsung Gear IconX review: Wireless earbuds with great sound—and lots of problems


You'll love the strong bass and 4GB of onboard storage, but these wire-free earbuds have scads of nagging drawbacks.

Rich sound, strong bass, high volume. ; 4GB of onboard storage for music tracks. ; Wire-free design is incredibly liberating.

Control interface is imprecise and annoying. ; Battery life is alarmingly short and falls short of claims. ; Heart rate data only appears on Samsung phones.

Samsung Gear IconX


The Samsung Gear IconX is a completely wire-free pair of Bluetooth headphones with solid sound quality and the ability to track your workouts.

Seamless, simple swipe-and-tap-based operation. Built-in heart rate monitor, works with app for fitness tracking. 4GB of internal storage for music. Carrying case doubles as charging dock and portable charger.

Not for those seeking huge bass. Delay with ambient mics.

Conclusions There are currently few comparable cable-free wireless models to compare the Gear IconX with, but that will change in the coming weeks and months. The aforementioned Bragi Dash performs so similarly across the board, that at times it felt...

Samsung Gear IconX review: Impressive looking product but needs better battery life - Tech2


Samsung launched the Gear IconX earlier this year before Apple even had a chance to announce their own candy-cane like AirPods.

I absolutely love how Samsung has made this product. It looks like something from the future. A future we used to see in movies. The sounds quality is not impressive, but it is still quite good for daily usage, especially while working out. The biggest...

Samsung Gear IconX review: Wireless earbuds with great sound—and lots of problems


You might need a leap of faith to insert Samsung's Gear IconX wireless earbuds inside your ear canals. Indeed, as Note7 owners showed us over the last few months, electronics packed with lithium-ion batteries can do double-duty as incendiary devices.

Samsung's Gear Icon X heart-rate fitness earbuds are completely wireless, coming later this year


Getting fit usually means wristbands and watches, but a handful of companies are trying out ears. Samsung is now in the fitness earphone game with the Gear IconX, debuting later this year. They're small buds that combine fitness tracking with Bluetooth...

Samsung Gear IconX wireless earphones Review


Oh, what a great time to be alive! The world's brightest minds have turned science fiction into fact by giving us semi-autonomous cars, vacuum cleaner robots, and pocket-sized communicators with access to the world's collective knowledge, among other...

Completely wireless Bluetooth earbuds ; More comfortable to wear than they look ; Good Bluetooth range ; Can store 1000 songs to play without a phone

Poor battery life, take a while to recharge ; Touch controls are inconvenient ; No iOS compatibility

The Samsung Galaxy IconX is a first-generation product. That's why I was not expecting it to be perfect, and it wasn't. Throughout my testing, I got to experience both its strengths and weaknesses – from the complete freedom and absolute awesomeness of...
