Samsung is making the most of IFA 2017 to launch multiple innovations in its catalog of connected accessories. One of these new devices is an updated version of its Bluetooth earphones. And we got to try them out before the launch! Here are our first impressions of Samsung’s 2018 Gear IconX earphones.

Samsung Gear IconX 2018 release date and price
Samsung’s Gear IconX 2018 earphones will be available in three colors: gray, pink and black. The charging cases also come in matching colors.
While the US price and release information has yet to be confirmed, the Gear IconX 2018 will hit the shelves in Europe at the end of October for 229 EUR. So, we expect it to sell for around $250 in the US.
Samsung Gear IconX 2018 design and build quality
Like the first model, the Gear IconX 2018 consists of two small earbuds. Their design is relatively discreet and quite similar to what we’ve already seen, so nothing overly innovative in that regard. Admittedly, there wasn’t much incentive to change this as first generation were decent and comfortable.
The Gear IconX 2018 slips easily into your ear and sits there perfectly- it simply does not budge, even if you hake your head or make abrupt movements. It’s also quite light, weighing in at 8 grams per earphone. These new earphones also ooze quality: despite their small size, they seem robust and sure to last you a while.
