Samsung's Gear IconX Are Truly Wireless Earbuds

If you’ve been following wireless earbuds like the Bragi Dash, you’re probably already skeptical of how Samsung did with these. Sadly, its three-hour battery life already puts me off, but I remain optimistic about the concept.

آ…the Gear IconX connect to the phone wirelessly and have no wires connecting the two earbuds آ— they are truly independent of each other. The earbuds are stored in a pill-shaped case when not in use, which provides up to two full charges. That's a good thing, because the battery life on the IconX is by far its biggest compromise. Samsung says that the headphones will last about an hour and a half when streaming music from your phone, or just over three and a half hours when playing music stored on their 4GB of internal memory.
