Music can be enjoyed on and offline by transferring songs from a Samsung smartphone or PC, or accessing your favorite tunes through Bluetooth connectivity. The earbuds are also your newest connection to Bixby. With a simple tap and hold of the earbud you can use your voice to control your music or your phone – without even having it in your hand.

The updated design comes in Black, Gray and Pink and is even more ergonomic and lightweight so they are effectively secure, comfortable and stylish to use. For the fitness enthusiast, the Gear IconX automatically tracks your running routines, and also features the standalone Running Coach function which can be activated by simply tapping the earbud to provide in-ear audio exercise status updates – in real-time and without your phone.
