Samsung to launch wireless Level In headphones together with the Galaxy S8


According to a report, Samsung is going to launch a new wireless headset to keep the Galaxy S8 company and take on the Apple AirPods. Rumor says that the Samsung Level In ANC wireless headphones will feature active noise cancellation and are going to cost around 130EUR ($139) in Europe. Reportedly, Samsung will be selling them in red, green, black, and silver.

Last year, Samsung debuted a set of wired earphones with the same name. They are able to reduce ambient noise by up to 20db and has a feature called "Talk-in Mode" which, sort of, does the opposite of noise cancellation – it lets in outside sound, so the wearer is able to hear someone call their name, for example.

Reportedly, the Samsung Galaxy S8 is scheduled for a March 29 announcement, which means the new Level earphones could make their appearance then.

Samsung has never created a popular accessory to that of the AirPods. Hmmm...what a coincidence as I wonder why the motivation to do this...

What's even weirder is how Samsung released Wireless earbuds prior to Airpods. Other than the battery, the Gear IconX are superior to Airpods

They failed because they were rushed to the market for the sake of being first.

Have you actually tried either of the earphones? From personal usage the IconX are more comfortable and formfitting, They store 4GB of Music so you don't have to rely on your phone, and they track your heart rate. The Airpods are hard plastic that don't mold to your ear and look like someone took scissors to a pair or EarPods. Again if not for Battery life, the IconX are better than the Airpods

The Icon X are better even with terrible battery-life. Funny how Bucky si the same fool who knows the iPhones has terrible battery-life considering it has 1/2 the specs of the Galaxy S. Apple Watch delayed for 2 years. Finally released and its worse than the original Gear. Apple makes it first wireless headphones, after buying a company that makes headphones, and they make an option worse than the company they bought. I guess Apple must be so much better according to Bucky.

As far as I know, no one but Apple knew that the AirPods were bring created in the labs and were going to be announced along the iPhone 7. All this they rushed it to beat Apple crap is always spread by Apple fanboys. Not just Samsung, but plenty of other OEMs released their own version of wireless earphones months prior to Apple. What's next? Samsung rushed AMOLED displays to beat Apple and be the 1st to do so? I mean we already heard this when we discussed phablets and smartwatches.

Rush? Proof? Explain all the similar earbuds that existed before the Icon X? I guess they rushed too? You guys are so stupid! Not only do you fools never have facts to back your claims, you all sound stupid to even make such a claim. If I didn't have facts to back a claim, I wouldn't even state any. But here is a claim I know is fact. YOU'RE AN IDIOT!!! In fact yoru own post proves it beyond any reasonable doubt. The problem with the Icon X is size. Rushed? Nah, it was APple who slowly rushed a poor design.. The Icon X at leads comes with extra rubber ends to he fit ANY ear size. Apple bought Beats, whose headphones also came with them, yet Apple makes a design that only fits 25% of the ears in the whole world. The Icon X has its own storage, which allows usage without a device. And it tracks your workout and syncs when it connected back with your device. Oh and they wont fall out your ears. The only thing they have in common is, they are both overpriced. But I will gladly pay 199.99 for headphones that do more than play music, and fit my ears vs Apple poor excuse for an attempt to make them. What was the point of buying Beats to begin with? Oh and my PowerBeats for the same cost as the Icon X, last 9 hours, have ear hooks, also have the W1 chip and are wireless and I don't have telescopes hanging from my ears. Apple typical looks over functions vs Samsung where function and looks work together.

You must have not used them if you're saying such a stupid thing; AirPods are way better than Icon, they sync better and they sure sound better.

Just an upgrade to their previous model.. it might not be so popular, but it definately seems to be profitable. I am currently using Level U Pro with my 7 Plus and I am very satisfied with the purchase.

Yup. There were 100+ articles in all US media that Samsung will copy this ''courageous'' Apple's innovation. Why shouldn't we believe them? Same as- copy the Force Touch BS. And copy Apple's bezel-less Edge design.

kk, I see it my bad. I just get tired of hearing about people claiming apple is so innovative when tbh samsung and xiaomi have been the only couple of companies pushing the envelope as far as phone body innovation and design. lmao apple just puts a screen inside a huge border and calls it breathtaking.
