An essential part of any smartphone, is a decent set of headphones or earbuds as they are now called.
While headphones are still wired, many users are opting for wireless airbuds which sync with your smartphones and also offer a plethora of other features.
Offering a cord-free, ergonomic design, standalone music playback, automatic activity tracking and a built-in Running Coach, Samsung’s Gear IconX earbuds are made for users who are constantly on the move and need a device that can keep up.
Released on April 10, the fitness-focused earbuds’ latest software update makes it even easier for users to maximise workouts – introducing new ways to customise the listening experience and streamlining how users fill the device with their favourite ‘pump-up’ tracks.
The Gear IconX’s new Equaliser feature allows users to quickly and easily adjust their audio’s frequency to optimal levels by choosing from five finely tuned presets: Bass Boost, Soft, Dynamic, Clear and Treble Boost.
The enhanced Ambient Sound function, meanwhile, enables users to specify exactly how much ambient sound they would like the earbuds to let in.
The Gear IconX’s standalone music playback and 4GB of built-in storage allow users to get in the zone during workouts without being weighed down by their phone.
The update’s new Wireless Transfer feature enhances this functionality by streamlining how users manage their earbuds’ music library – removing the need for cables and allowing users to wirelessly add multiple tracks at once.
Gear IconX users may download the update via the Samsung Gear app.
