The world of the headphone has changed considerably over recent years, with wired offerings being replaced for the most part by those that are wireless. This has been accelerated by the removal of headphone jacks from many high-end phones, and truly wireless headphones like the Apple AirPods are perhaps the best example of what can make wireless so great. Unfortunately, if you’re an Android phone user, these might not be the best option. The Samsung Gear IconX, however – now that’s a different story.

Right now, those Samsung Gear IconX can be had for considerably less than the normal $200 asking price. In fact, they can be yours for just $128.99. That’s a saving of over $70!

So what makes the Gear IconX so great? To start, they have around five hours of battery life when used for Bluetooth streaming, seven hours when used for MP3 playback, and four hours when their wearer is on a voice call. There is integration with Bixby and Google Assistant, too, and there are even sensors that can track your speed, distance, and calorie expenditure. That all happens with the benefit of real-time voice guidance, too.

If you’ve ever tried AirPods, you probably know that they are not always the easiest things to fit into your ears, but the Gear IconX don’t have the same problem thanks to the inclusion of multiple sizes of tips and even some wing tips for those who like to make sure their ‘phones are well and truly in place.

If a pair of truly wireless headphones has been on your shopping list, now is the time to take the plunge. If AirPods aren’t your thing, these are the way to go.
