Samsung enters the wireless headphone market with their Gear IconX

Samsung is today throwing its hat into the ring with the announcement of the Gear IconX. The $199.99 IconX are the first truly wireless headphones from a major manufacturer, though they echo many of the same features and design of other models we’ve seen already.

A direct competitor to the long coming Bragi Dash Samsung’s offering seems bogged down with the same complications ie. battery life.

1.5 hours of bluetooth streamed audio is less than ideal. Even with it’s little case that offers a couple of charges you hardly want to be popping them in and out of that on a flight from Sydney to Perth and still not make it through.

Love where this tech is headed but maybe take out the heart rate & fitness features that I’d argue most people don’t want/need and boost up that phat battery life man!

Available in Q3 the only pricing mentioned is US$199.99.
