Stopped Working

tbonehudson 2/1/2019

I bought these a year and 1 month ago and after the first 3 months, the right earbud stopped working. I usually just listen to podcasts though, so ignored it and after a few more months, both buds stopped working altogether and now won't even hold a charge and won't reconnect to my Samsung phone. I have never dropped them and i store them at room temp in my desk drawer. I just called customer support and she actually just told me that there's nothing she can do and i should just buy another pair. Thanks!

Really bad product. I purchased 2 and both was great the first few weeks then the sound in both ear started to gradually decrease. Send them to be exchanged and had the same problem again. Worst experience with ear buds.

Nothing but problems

Baby Gabe 11/27/2018

I enjoy The look, sound, and fit of the earphones. The problem is they disconnect randomly. Sometimes I can Go 5/10 min with no problems. Other times I can Even listen to a full song without them disconnecting 10-20 times

Not ready for prime time

aBMWracer 11/18/2018

I've owned these buds for 11 months. Initially impressed with wireless freedom and decent sound quality, but I'm already on my second warranty exchange, which is a horrible process (14 days + shipping time x 2 exchanges). Battery life is short, not as advertised. I use them for 15 minutes a day, have to charge once a week, so about 1.5hrs per charge. Sound quality is only good for podcasts and audio books, don't even bother with music. Would not buy again.

Great for the gym but useless for jogging/hiking

Jjsai 9/16/2018

I got these earbuds a week a go and theynwork great at the gym. I went hiking last saturday and one of them started playing the message "the earbud needs to cooldown". I put them back in the case and I use them again after 10 minutes but I got the same problem after wearing them for 10 minutes. I used my bottle of water as a cooler device by keeping it on the earbud playing the message. I try again this monring when the temperature outside wasnt too hot but I got the same issue. Depending of where the sun was, my left or my right, the earbud played the same message. I love the technology and the easy way they aync with my galaxy note but if I can use them outside they are practically useless for me.

Manufacture Defect

Slazster 8/23/2018

Samsung fails to note that the headphones tend to become uneven in volume after a month of use. I have gone through two pairs and they both suffer from the same issues. The second pair came with replacement mesh filters for the headphones. In 2 months, I have replaced the filters 8 times. I was only supplied with 16 filters to replace. Samsung customer service has never returned my call in order to issues a refund. AVOID THIS FAULTY PRODUCT.

Amazing

Meeko 4/29/2018

I've had a few different types of Bluetooth earphones but I really wanted to give the iconx a try. So far, I have not been disappointed. Did snug in my ears without discomfort. I can be running, working out and building up a sweat but they don't slip out. Sound quality is better than I expected and I like the ambient noise option when I commute on my bike. It's pretty responsive and battery life great. The only thing I wish the 2018 model kept was the Heart rate monitor. I know since the battery is larger they had to make room but for a pair of workout ear buds the monitor would have gotten this set the 5/5. The carrying case is great as well with extending the use and it's nice and small.

Waaaaay better then expected!!

Colemanja 4/5/2018

I bought these because I kept pinching the wires on previous headphones at the gym. I thought they'd be "ok" but nothing special. Thankfully I was wrong! These things are amazing!! Its hard to explain without experiencing it for yourself! The only drawback is when I go into the sauna, the low battery beeps turn on. Not sure if it's my earbuds or if this is a common problem

Mudshark63 3/26/2018

I love them! 'Nuf said. Seriously though, these are great. The ambient sound mode is a real + more than enough storage for your music (just in case it's not, playing off the phone is another huge deal). The gradual fade out is pretty cool when receiving calls or texts. All said, a well designed product.

Much better than other wireless headphones

kirstend 2/28/2018

I love these ear buds! I have been using Homespot wireless earbuds for about a year now and I really liked them, however they worked their way out of my ears when I moved too much (walking a lot) or even chewing. I didn't know there was a better option. While my ears are still getting used to the wings on these Samsung earbuds, they are amazing! They don't budge. The sound is great and the ease of use is fantastic! Best purchase I've made in a long time.

Not just for Workouts

tsacevedo 2/13/2018

I've used wireless headphones and earbuds, and I love these GearX! They connect quickly and have such great sound quality. Not to mention the compact size that'll fit practically anywhere I need it to go. I also love that they'll stay in place, which I might have accidentally tested when I fell asleep after coming home from the gym.... My only concerns were with the buds and TouchPad. I might have unusually small ear canals where the buds are still slightly too big - earbuds that hurt aren't a new thing for me. They might not be able to be smaller due to the stability aspect for active lifestyles like working out (which, BTW, they're great at! Stick them in and they're good to go!) but I did have to remove them every once in a while to give my ears a rest. Next would be the TouchPad. It did take a minute to learn how to use the touch pad, plus another minute to find my groove while active. It got frustrating early on until I got something. That being said, I only docked 1 star because the pros have outweighed the cons for me. Out of the wireless headphones and earbuds I've tried, I would definitely go for the GearX above all.

A Seamless Companion

BigBenn25 2/6/2018

Music is a big part of many people's workout routines including my own. My headphones are just as important as having weights to lift or a treadmill to run on. I look for three particular characteristics when choosing a good pair which are comfort, great sound quality and battery life. I'm happy to say that the Samsung Gear IconX 2018 provided all of the above. I found it to be the perfect workout companion. I'm usually not a fan of earbud style bluetooth headphones but the Gear IconX 2018 were surprisingly comfortable. The call quality was pretty good but definitely diminished in windy situations. They were light weight and would stay in my ear no matter how vigorously I moved around. The carrying case was very convenient to travel with. The battery off of one full charge would last throughout my entire workout and then some. The fact that the carrying case also doubles as a portable charger gave me extra reassurance that I wouldn't be without my music. One of the best things I found about the Gear IconX 2018 was that they were all I needed to have my music with me. I used the internal storage to load some of my favorite playlists and I was ready to go. The gesture based controls were easy to familiarize myself with so there was no need for my to wear my phone in its armband. The onboard running coach feature did motivate me a bit to push pass my normal routine. The ambient noise feature did come in handy traveling outside because it allowed me to stay immersed in my music while still being able to here things going on around me. Overall I'm very happy with my experience using the Gear IconX 2018. Can't wait to see how they improve going forward.

Great fit

Gingerc3 2/2/2018

The design of these are awesome. I love the way they fit in my ears. The sound is great. I am able to block out the sounds of my rowdy crowd. It is also easy to control the volume on these. It is nice to be able to not be tangled by wires. There aren't any worries about these falling out of my ears either. They will be great in the summer while I am gardening. I feel they would be good for exercising. I would recommend these to active people who really enjoy music. Or anyone who enjoys music.

Great for Music, not for Exercise

oconnorallen 2/2/2018

First use for these were impressive. The sound quality was excellent for both music and taking phone calls. I was actually really blown away that the sound during my work calls seemed like I was talking with everyone in a room rather than the sound pounding in my ears. Battery life is great and the hands free volume and track control is nice to have as a single button to press or swipe. The issues for me started to come during exercise. The first week was great on the treadmill and indoor track (which I use the headphones for both music and audiobooks). The second week I noticed that the left earpiece volume would be less and less than the right earpiece to the point that I would only be able to hear out of my right ear. I switched to outside running again this week and with the device on high volume I could barely hear the audio out of the headphones (for all these times I've also made sure the iconX had full battery). Overall I would say I love these for everyday use but not for my running and exercising.

Nailed it!

moneill1020303 2/2/2018

Samsung knocked it out of the park with the Gear IconX, and because of that I'm never going back to wired headphones. I've used these in all kinds of different environments, from the gym to the office, from a plane to just relaxing around the house, and they have exceled everywhere I used them. When they first arrived it took a little experimenting to figure out which size wingtips and eartips fit me just right (there are 3 different sizes of each provided), but once I had that figured out I felt like I could wear these all day. The batteries last way longer than any other headphones I've tried…..and when not in use its awesome that the storage case doubles as the charger. Especially handy when I've used them a lot on any given day at the office and needed a quick charge on the way to the gym! The controls are pretty straightforward and very responsive, which is great mid workout to skip a song or turn the volume up on that song that gets you going more. The Bluetooth range is great as well. I just leave my phone and the case in my gym bag and do everything from the headphones, including taking calls! Oh and speaking of Bluetooth…..they paired so easily that I didn't even realize it at first haha Overall like I said above, I think Samsung nailed it with these, from overall look and feel down to the technology itself. I think it will be a few years before I find anything new that will pull me away from these….

My husband is trying to snag my IconX!

greekkisses3 2/2/2018

I am only doing a quick un-boxing and initial thoughts on the IconX and the reason for that is they needed to be fully charged before moving forward with the review of quality, ease of use as well as comfort. My husband has a pair of Samsung Gear IconX that he has had for over a year now. He got all too excited when I told him about this campaign and I couldn't understand why since he already has a pair...hmmm. Anyway, my un-boxing review. They came with 2 different sized USBs which is nice since newer products like our Samsung 8 phones have the larger size. The carrying case is sturdy and colored the same as the earphones. Very simple charging system, just drop them into the form fitted slots, plug in and you are charging. The case is fantastic for popping into your purse or pocket since it is not too cumbersome. We did notice that we have to do an update on it since when we plugged it into the PC to charge it asked about it but it was not charged enough to be able to update. Once we fully charge and get into use I will update my review. Updated review :: Charged earbuds and didn't use for three days, kept the charge, used for 3 hours and still had the charge unlike the IconX from last year where if they sat for 3 days they would have lost charge. Clarity on newer IconX are better than previous model. Easy transfer from phone for my music library. Charging case has Bluetooth feature which we have not tried yet but will be looking into. The comfort level is awesome, hubby wore them for 3 hours and they never moved or made him uncomfortable. The battery life is also incredible since as I said he wore them for 3 hours and still they were charged. Being able to transfer my music from my phone via the USB connector was the best upgrade in my opinion. You must connect with the provided connectors in order to do the transfer. The longer battery life is an absolute fantastic upgrade and is probably tied with ease of use in transferring my music.

Wireless got me Wired!

nadnccin3 2/2/2018

Wireless got me Wired! I have been looking at different brands of wireless earbuds that look nice, have good audio quality, and includes a charge carry case. These earbuds connect easily and perfectly with my Galaxy S8+. Let's great straight to it… Pros: Easy setup with my Galaxy S8+. Good sound quality. Excellent connection stability. Battery life is good. Includes a charging case for the ear buds. Fits snug in my ear while working out. Has a 4gb memory on the earbud to store music (1000+ songs). Sound quality is good for calls. Cons: Earbuds lack bass compared to other earbuds. The Bluetooth distance is approximately 20ft before you lose connection. Overall, the Samsung Gear Icon X are really neat and perfect for wireless usage and being active and on the go. They are a great option for working out and look really great. I also have to applaud the audio quality and extended battery life.

Great for being on the go

laurelcordell3 2/2/2018

The IconX has solved so many problems for my life. They allow me to listen to my music and make calls without havung to take my phone out of my purse. It took me about 15 seconds to pair these with my phone and I was off. I could use the to activate the google assistant and play my music without having to even look at my phone. The red and green indicator lights have been helpful in knowing knew the buds were fully charged and available for use. They are so sleek that when I was skating around singing, people didn't know if it was all in my head or if I was listening to something, lol. I was able to use the buds on base to make calls and not get a ticket. My husband was able to hear every word without me having to raise my voice or speak slowly for the microphone to catch. The charging case is probably the best thing ever because it not only protects the buds, it also charges them. I loved being able to listen to music while walking around my cube and not having to remember my phone was attached to me. The audio is so clear that I never missed a note. 10/10 would use again.

The earbuds I have been waiting for

gigastorm3 2/2/2018

Samsung took last years IconX model and made it ten times better. The design is great, the fit snug, out of the box, in my ear. I really like that it does not protrude out like other devices plus they do not feel like they are weighing you down. They automatically detected and connected to my Samsung Galaxy S8 when I placed them into my ear. The sound from these earbuds are amazing. The range is great as well. I am able to stay connected anywhere in my house or office without taking my phone with me. It's a good idea to turn on ambient sound mode so you can still hear your surroundings while listening to music. When I used them in the gym, they stayed in my hear the whole from from lifting to running on the treadmill. The case itself is a lot more compact and fits my pocket well. The biggest issues from last year's model was resolved. I am getting 5-6 hours of battery life on one charge and the right earbud unit no longer heats up from prolonged use. Overall, I am very impressed, they will now be my new everyday use earbuds.

Great Earbuds with Fantastic Sounds

mystermo3 2/2/2018

Samsung Gear IconX 2018 is near perfect bluetooth earbuds with cable-cut. I have used it with Samsung Galaxy S8+ exclusively; so cannot comment for other phones. First of all, sound quality is the biggest plus in my opinion. Sure; it does not compete with some high quality over-ear headphones. However, I think it can produce some great sounds in terms of highs and mids. Second strong point is its great battery life. It can hold up for 6~7 hours. Making it even better is its quick charging capability. Carrying its charging case around is a bit cumbersome, but it charges about 2 hours of battery in about 15 minutes. Here are the goods and some improvements of the Samsung Gear IconX 2018: Goods: - Fantastic sounds - Great battery life - Fast charging - Comfortable fit Improvements: - Occasional syncing issue between left and right buds. (hope it can be fixed after FW update) - Bixby integration needs some improvement - Slight learning curve (recommend reading the manual)

Futuristic First Try

Itsjaylin3 2/2/2018

Comparing to the older version, these have better battery life. The buds fit perfectly, and if they don't there are multiple size options for bud size and ear size. They sound great and hold a pretty decent charge. The case is also convenient since it can portably charge the buds in my pocket if they die. The deep Galaxy smartphone integration is a bonus for Galaxy owners. However, the IconX's fitness-tracking ended up going unused, but maybe if there was integration with a well-known sports workout app, it would be used more often. One of the best experiences I had was losing and then finding my buds on the ground. In the settings there is an option to locate the buds using a high pitch tone that's emitted from the headphones when in close proximity. In the end, if you're a Samsung user who wants a pair of truely wireless earbuds that can survive a day without charge, the Gear IconX is a winner.

First Experience WIth Wireless Earbuds

tiggerisis3 2/2/2018

I was very excited for this campaign as I have never used wireless earbuds before. My overall impression has been they are awesome. I have always used wired earbuds due to them being cheaper and that is what I was use to having. It makes it so much easier to move around without having to deal with a cord in the way and being tied down to my phone or computer when listening to music. I have earbuds on the majority of my day. I work in an office on my laptop all day & they allow us to listen to music while we work. I am also a college student so I listen while studying. The downside is I listen to music a lot so I have to charge them often. I worry will that have an effect on how long they last. It also took awhile to get use to the controls by touch since I never experienced anything like that. Once other downside is depending on what music I am listening too I found out that sometimes I wish I could turn up the volume when it as at the highest limit. Other than these 2 issues I have absolutely no complaints. These are both minor issues in my eyes so I am happy to keep these earbuds and continue to keep using them.

My Gear IconX

tinagrrtt3 2/2/2018

Hello Insiders, Here is my review of the Samsung Gear IconX Cord-free fitness earbuds. Upon unpacking the Samsung Gear IconX earbuds, I was very impressed. The package contained 2- grey earbuds, 1- pill shaped charging case, 1- Samsung charging sync data cable, 2- Samsung USB connectors (type B and C), a device quick user guide, and warranty information. Oops, I almost forget the package also contained multiple size ear cusions so the user can adjust them based on their size preference. Now, I could go on and on about the technical aspects of the Gear IconX earbuds but that's probably not what you want to hear. After charging the devices for an hour, they were ready to pair. Pairing the Gear IconX earbuds was a breeze. Simply went to my Bluetooth devices on my cell phone and connected them. The Gear IconX earbuds also act as a fitness trainer through the Samsung Gear and Samsung Health Apps, which you can download from the Google play store. Once paired and after I adjust the ear cushions to fit my needs, they worked great. The ambient sound feature of the Gear IconX earbuds added with my hearing loss upon inserting the devices into my ears. The sound quality of the devices is excellent but they could stand to be a little louder, but again that user preference. The Gear IconX earbuds were very comfortable after five full hours of use. I am very impressed with quality of the devices. There is even a find my earbuds feature if you forget where you put them. I definitely like that feature because they are so small. During a hard workout and jogging, the Gear IconX earbuds were fantastic. I did not have to adjust them in my ears even once. The ambient sound feature allowed me to hear everything around me during my run, which was extremely nice for safety reasons. I would like to say Thank you for allowing me to review this product. It was a delight.

Gear Up and head out!

strike1nc3 2/2/2018

My initial visual inspection left me a little lost on how these ear buds would actually work, and though the pairing with the Gear App wasn't exactly how the instructions read it was still very easy. However my first advice to anyone is READ!! Yes read the instructions on how these work. At first I just wanted to pop them in and start listening and though that did sorta of work it wasn't that easy. I've had some time to read and find out about every aspect of these IconX ear buds, but I have more to test much much more. For now I want to report the quality of sound, and initial comfort and initial concern. The sound quality is amazing so clear and crisp, but keep your phone close I was able to leave my phone plugged into my room as I was doing some cleaning, but the moment I left the room and went into living room sound would start to cut out. Comfort is good, but I'm testing out all the combo ear pieces so more to come. So far just a good 3 out 5 stars on comfort alone. Function oh man amazing and the fact I can store music right into the headset now that is cool. Not that I would leave my S Watch at home on a run, but just in case I did I could still have my music with me. The gestures have been accurate, such as pause, Vol up and down next track that sort of thing. Its actually too good when I put my fingers in to adjust headset they will auto start and stop music sometimes. Still getting the hang of where the sensor sits, but so far very quick response will be checking out tonight at the gym how they do with sweat! I will definitly be doing follow up reports as I learn more and more of these wonderful headphones. Next test will be active and battery life!

THE UPGRADE IS REAL!!!

mshill773 2/2/2018

Samsung has gotten it right the second time around. My favorite upgrade is the fit it's perfect now. I can excersise and move around with out worrying about my earbuds falling out my ear. I also love the fact that it have 4GB of built in storage so you can save up to 1000 songs. The battery life and also better, it gives 5 to 7 hours on one full charge. The carrying case has an integrated battery, so all you have to do is pop your ear buds back in the case and you will be back in business in no time. If you want a pair of headphones with a great fit, lomg lasting battery and no strings attached Samsung Gear IconX is the way to go!

Great Design and Nice Sound Quality

nathanding1233 2/2/2018

My first impression upon opening my Gear Icon X box was just how small the earbuds actually are. They fit perfectly in my ears and achieve a great seal to block out external noise. The snug fit means that I can move and exercise freely without worrying about them falling out. The 100% wireless design also means that there are absolutely no tangled cables to deal with! The tap/swipe controls too a while to memorize and get used to, but are so convenient once you get a hang of them too. Battery life is a solid 5 hours (supposedly more if storing music locally in the earbuds, but I generally use Spotify on my phone to play music). The pill-shaped charging case also holds an extra charge, and the earbuds automatically disconnect from my phone when they are put in the case (and reconnect automatically when the case is opened) which is surprisingly convenient as well. All in all, these are a great pair of earbuds. My only complaint is that there are times where the bluetooth connection is a bit unstable, and the earbuds die out for a split second before re-establishing connection. However, these incidents were not common. Would definitely recommend the Gear Icon X 2018 to anyone interested!

I hear what everyone is talking about

JLM23 2/2/2018

My first impressions upon un-boxing the Gear IconX was how well built the quality is, how ergonomic they are and pleasant they feel when seated properly in the ears. They look and feel as if they were built specifically to fit for me. Upon charging the Gear IconX (which didn't take long at all with the supplied USB C charging cable and the well designed cradle) I was ready to try them out for a run. As I placed them in my ears, I hear a tone, acknowledging that they are placed in my ear. This is a satisfying tone as it confirms they are connected and placed in there ears correctly. They fit perfectly, as if Samsung had personally made them for me. The gestures take some time getting used to, but once you do, it becomes natural, naturally amazing. I especially enjoy that no matter which earbud you choose to use the gestures on, it works flawlessly. The sound is unheard of, literally. It's clear, loud (but not too loud) and it tickles the ear drums to hear such a beautiful sound (my song of choice was "Wildflowers" by Tom Petty, RIP. Pros: The fit - Samsung made them just for me, right? The sound - I have hearing problems, but wow, everything is as clear as day. The gestures are a huge ease of operation and added to functionality when you're in the middle of workout. No cords! Auto pause feature when removed. The capsule (charging base) is small enough to carry with and big enough you won't lose. The Gray color is easy on the eyes. Fast Charging Cons: The price - although worth it, it's pretty steep. My kids love to use/play with them because of how cool they look. More color options would be nice (color is a way for individuals to display their personality, a neon green on black, red on black, or blue on white would really make these customized for anyone in search for a good pair of bluetooth in ear buds. Samsung has put the X on the spot for the Gear IconX earbuds, they're a great treasure for any active person who enjoys good sound, easy skip, volume or pause functionality without the cord bouncing up and down.

Almost There

Gjbracey 1/30/2018

Overall this is a pretty good product. I work in a factory setting and being able to wear these unnoticed was a great thing. Never did I have a problem with trying to hear what I was listening to having the Ambient setting to let the outside sound in, what a great addition the one thing that I didn't like is that after using it a couple of days one of the earbuds would not charge,and for a new product that's kind of a problem. The other thing is on the Bluetooth setting even after listening for just an hour the earbuds would seem to lose all the battery really fast which was the main complaint for last year's model. the standout feature personally is when you remove an Air Bud and put it back it will continue with what you were listening to without you having to press play. This is exactly the product that I was looking for for an everyday earbud. The one thing that I'm sure we all will always enjoy would be better battery life, the charging case is great but after only an hour that's really not much use.

Good but not perfect

ChefB515 1/28/2018

Really comfortable. Only complaint is left ear bud went out in less than a month. Repairs through Samsung take around 3 weeks, which is extremely frustrating. Had similar issue with gear s3 frontier that had to be sent in 2x, seems to be an on going design issue that products are not ready/fully test when laumched.

Loved them at first but not right now

Chris419608 1/25/2018

I started off loving these ear buds. They fit well, had voulme controls, pretty good sound, and held a good charge. Sadly after about 3 or 4 weeks of good use the right bud suddenly became much quieter then normal making it so I cold only hear the left when using both. I have tried resetting the buds but it is clearly a non software issue. I have try reaching out to Samsung through online chat but it always told me to reset the product and nothing more. I haven't had the chance to call and talk to and real person yet. But so far my experience hasn't been great. Wish I could say better.

Upgraded Airpods for Android

ChumsKnifeblade 1/17/2018

The Samsung Icon X (2018) Bluetooth headset is fantastic and worth the money, but it's not without it's pros and cons. First off, the Design is absolutely fantastic. I normally hate earbuds but I really enjoyed the wireless freedom and the ability to listen to music or podcast using only one headset. Changing the charge port for the charging case to USB C has been an extremely useful feature since I only need to carry one cable around instead of having an extra. The sound quality isn't bad but something that could been better, still enjoyable. The touch controls are great when they work and better than any other wireless headset I've used. The battery life has been amazing, probably the highest point of this device. I've only fully killed the headset once, I work 12hr shifts and I use them constantly at work for hours at a time. I enjoy the added features like Ambient sound so you can hear things around you, It works, not as detailed as I was expecting but it's my first time expecting it so I have nothing to base it off. The best thing is just how everything seems to work together, Went I take them out of my ear they stop whatever i'm listening to, Put them back in and they start back up, Put them into the case and they disconnect, remove them and they connect. All without you doing anything to add to that seemless process. That is the best part of these bluetooth headset. Now for the cons Although the process of using it is seamless, it does lose those extra features if it's not a Samsung phone, you lose things like ambient sound or find your headset. Another thing is these earbuds are comfy but for only so long after some time it feels like it's digging into your ears, i can only wear it for maybe an hour or two at a time. I wish i could wear them all day but I get why they are designed this way, its meant to stay in your ears, which they do extremely well. Another drawback is the carrying case only holds enough for 1 charge, so you might still get some battery anxiety if you're not near a charge port for a long time. As I stated before the touch controls are hit or miss, I had some issues with not sure if the left side had a touch control or not because it wouldn't respond but the right side would work more often than not. And finally the carrying case clip to close takes a lot of effort to ensure it's closed, feels like you have to really shut it down, wish it was a bit easier. Overall: I love these and so does my girlfriend.

Best wireless earphone experience

ngafoor 1/17/2018

So I've done my fair share of rounds with Bluetooth headphones and earbuds and my usual complaint is that odd disconnect/reconnect issue. I'm happy to say that on a full charge, the Samsung Gear IconX 2018 is amazing! They look great in your ears, road-tested in the gym, on the trail, running and long hours of use and the experience was active and comfortable! Let's get to the best highlights of these amazing earphones! The design is, tiny and discreet, and while traveling, it would be wise to have the carry /charging case with you always. Since the earphones are so small, the chance of losing them is high, and you want to keep your investment safe and sound! The most common issue I have with most Bluetooth earphones is their length of usage and the odd disconnect/reconnect issue. The IconX has an 82 mAh battery, which means, 4 hours of talk, 5 hours of streaming, and a 7-hour battery life in standalone mode! Now I have found myself failing to charge every now and then because I think the charging box will do the trick, but the charging box also needs to be charged! The audio itself is rich, not boomy and we're able to hear the full range of mids and upper frequency. There are odd moments when the sound feels shallow, but once the connection gets strong the sound comes back to life. I also tested out the software to upload a few mixes directly into the earphones, which means I can leave my phone in the car and my running experience became smoother! The Gear software on my Samsung S8+ is very intuitive and one of my favorite features is the ambient sound. With the ambient sound turned on, running became a very alert and active atmosphere. I'm also more alert at the gym due to this feature. There have been issues on controlling the earphones itself, no tactile buttons, and the control is touch sensitive, which means accidentally skipping songs while trying to increase volume. I settled controlling the earphones from my phone. They still have sensors on them to track walking, running and comes with a fitness coach – but, prepare for a faster battery drain if you use this feature. Since I use my Samsung Gear S3 to track of my activities, I've disabled the IconX fitness coach. I fully charge my carry/charge case because it gives you two full charges. Sudden loss of connection on one of the earphones is another good reminder. Overall, this is a definite buy for folks that are looking for an intelligent, discrete cable free earphones!

Best Ear Buds ever.

Ka097923 1/17/2018

I have been using these for a couple weeks now and they are hands down the best ear buds I have ever owned. Battery life is good. Sound quality is amazing and I love the ability to put music on them. I will keeping these and using them everyday to work out. I was using powerbeats but they have officially been replaced. I tried to find a con in these and I have not been able to so far. Thanks Samsung for making these so well.

Was skeptical but these are the truth

foota501 1/17/2018

We've all read before how these type of ear pieces are better than the rest. Well THIS time they didn't lie. First off I LOVE being able to connect my music and movies without wires for long fights, the others I've used constantly come out your ear or that piece that goes over your ear gets irritating after awhile. Now to get to the workout, I've used them 3 times so far working out(I'm a heavy sweater) and they did not budge. LOVE the workout coach that's motivating you as you go, that lil bit of motivation pushed me though when I was ready to quit. I like having it linked directly to my Samsung health app as well, (did I say how much I enjoyed these icon x). The music didn't stop either, 1 tap to skip to the next track when slow songs came on (thought i took em out my workout playlist) was AWESOME! Samsung did there thing with these, my daughter and her workout junkie boyfriend want a pair NOW! These don't disappoint at ALL!

IconX Genuine Review

VamsiGaddipati 1/17/2018

Hi, I have been using the IconX for more than 2 weeks. I will list down the pros and cons of this. Pro's: 1) Better sound quality. It will give you the sound quality you will find this better even compared to bose pods. 2) Rich in functionality, You can invoke the voice assistant with couple of touches from pods. You can pick the call, end the call & even control the volume & it has all the music controls. 3) Fast charging and long lasting battery Cons: Even though it has multiple pros it has one defect. 1) Size of pods are relatively large and you may feel discomfort after wearing for a couple of hours.

Almost Didn't try them. So Glad I did!!

Dareelbig1 1/17/2018

A quick summary in case you don't want too much info. RUN to the store DON'T WALK and pick these up today!!!! When I first received this unit I found that I did not like the color at all. Grey is the wrong shade for headphones like these. But forgetting about the color lets get into the whole device itself!! The Good! The headphones fit great! I love that they are not as uncomfortable as you would think they look. In case they current inserts are too small or too big there is 1 smaller and 1 larger size ear and lobe insert. Battery life is amazing on the headsets for music or streaming I do wish it was a bit longer for phone calls. Moving and pairing the unit between phone and PC is usually a hassle with Bluetooth devices but these moved between seamlessly without any issues. I LOVE THIS!!!! The other thing that is amazing is that you can pass the 1 of the headphones to a friend, partner, Significant other, child, etc. and you can both listen in without worry of wires!! USB-C charging so quick charge up with appropriate charging brick. The headphones have some onboard memory as well so you can put songs on it for workouts or just a playlist to zone out to. It is less that 4 gigs but enough to get a good list of songs to listen to for a while. Nice surprise but not needed as I stream directly from my phone/PC. Now the bad. As I stated before I wish the grey was a different color grey more charcoal or just a darker shade in general. You can only charge the headphones in the charging case. With wireless charging an option it should have been used instead, As per charging there is no charging brick so you need to have one and make sure it is newer to otherwise it will be a slow charge. Have to use Samsung Gear app for initial setup. I don't like being locked to software but at least it checks for and perform firmware updates. Voice commands on the unit are not always heard and if sweating it will affect the touch controls. It causes them to react incorrectly not all the time but often enough to be a small annoyance. Last but not least the sound quality is not amazing. Even though I say this I still think they sound great for the type of headphone they are. So in closing: Pros: Fits well! Battery Life - Music/streaming. Paring and switching devices a breeze. Share what you hear! Onboard storage USB-C Charging Cons: Bad color Case only charging No Charging brick Must use app Some touch issues if wet/sweating Sound quality, not 100%

Perfect fit and sound

swundrack2 1/5/2018

After a lot of anticipation, my Samsung Gear IconX came. I've been ready for something like this for a long time. No wires, great battery, and the sound is awesome. I've been trying to use them in all sorts of situations, like walking, working, working out, and just around the house, and haven't found any flaws. I really love the ambient option. I was able to play my music while my 7 year old daughter plays with her new toys, and still hear her and not have to pause or stop my music. I will play more with the coach and other settings more in the next few days, but from the touch sentivity for volume, pausing and fast forwarding these ear buds are on mark.
