Samsung Level Over Review
Hitting it on the dot again, Sammy has somehow reached near perfection with its most premium pair of headphone. Add to that, its active noise cancellation feature seals the deal for us.
Switching over to Bluetooth, the pairing process is simple and quick – while maintaining its connection for up to 30 feet before showings signs of cutting in and out. Making it even easier for some, NFC connectivity is also available. Now, as we’ve mentioned earlier, the advantage of the Bluetooth connection is the ability to utilize the touch sensitive surface of the right ear cup. Audio-wise, we’re pleasantly surprised to find that it closely matches its wired connection. Yet again, there’s no shortage of thumping audio with this one. Heck, cranking it up to its loudest, we never experience any crackling or strain – so it’s able to resonate with the same balanced quality.
In addition, the noise cancellation feature of the Samsung Level Over is able to do a decent job at reducing distracting background noise – giving us full attention to our music. However, it doesn’t mute it out entirely, but rather, suppresses it enough to keep our attention solely on the music. Finally, the Samsung Level app for Android provides us with certain audio enhancements, like Sound Alive, that adjusts the output of the headphones accordingly to cover a broad range of music genres.
Usage on the go is ample thanks to its over 15 hours of battery life.
Without blowing out our ears, the Samsung Level Over delivers nearly 16.5 hours of mixed usage in our experience, which is a smidgen more than the 15 hours it’s rated by Samsung. Well, that’s partly because we kept the volume between the middle setting the majority of time testing it out – with the noise cancellation feature off.
Frankly speaking, we’re really impressed with Samsung’s performance in the high-end mobile audio accessories arena. We all certainly know that they’re a top-tiered contender in the smartphone space, but they somehow came out of the gate with a bang with its Level series. Saving the best for last, the Samsung Level Over manages to astound us in many significant ways. Choked full of tech goodies such as touch controls, NFC connectivity, and active noise cancellation, it has a wide array of features to appease casual and hardcore audio buffs.
No doubt, its $350 sticker tag shouldn’t be much of a shocker, especially considering the caliber of this pair – and how it’s meant to compete against the premium offering from its rivals. Yeah, we agree that it’s a tough amount to shell out, but at the end of the day, it’s a quality pair that comes to the table packing serious heat. You won’t be disappointed!
