The perfect compliment to your Galaxy device

from Techaeris

The Samsung Gear IconX 2018 earbuds are the perfect compliment to your Samsung Galaxy device if you want some wire-free earbuds. They work super great with other Android phones too and pair up with iPhone just fine. They sound great and have a decent amount of battery life for wire-free earbuds.

Vaguely aimed at fitness

from Tech Advisor

The Samsung Gear IconX are better than their bad name. They are best paired with an Android phone with the aptX Bluetooth codec, so check first. But like the Apple AirPods, these are a Samsung product and work best with Samsung Galaxy devices.

A great pair of wireless earbuds

from Android and Me

The sound is good, especially considering their size, and the battery life isn’t too shabby either. Beyond just being earbuds for listening to music, you can use them when exercising to track your workout and get some motivation in your ear.

Good and reliable sound quality

from Gear Patrol

If you’re looking for truly wireless earbuds for running that sound pretty good and stay in your ears, these are great. And now they’re decently affordable. Just be aware that the charging case has some issues.

Comfortable, long-lasting wireless earbuds

from ZDNet

With the Samsung Gear IconX, you can listen to music, receive coaching, and track some basic data without a watch or a phone in hand. I've had low sound on some headsets in the past, but the IconX provides good volume and a solid listening experience.

Delivers just enough to be worth every cent

from Ausdroid

I’d recommend the IconX 2018 as good enough to encourage long-term use with comfort. They mightn’t have the same magic as Apple’s Airpods, or the same Assistant integration as those from other brands, and they don’t have incredible built-in features like taking your pulse from your ear.

Good Gear Guide

The path of least resistance makes for an easy upgrade

from Good Gear Guide

In Samsung’s efforts to lean into everything that worked about the original IconX, they’ve pivoted away from everything the product could be. They’re successful in that they improve upon the original, but every step of the way it’s clear that Samsung took the road of least resistance in achieving that outcome.

Falls short of an icon

from TechRadar

While the Gear IconX 2018 brings better battery life than its predecessor, it still has problems that prevent it from being a truly outstanding audio product.

Samsung wireless headphones now a stronger rival to AirPods

from Cnet

Samsung's Gear Icon X 2018 is a small, comfortable-to-wear, totally wireless earphone that has improved battery life and a smaller charging case than the previous model's. Samsung has improved the second-generation Gear Icon X to become one of the better totally wireless headphones, especially for Galaxy phone owners.

Sound quality is good for athletes, bad for connoisseurs

from PhoneArena

The Samsung Gear IconX 2018 is a good set of truly wireless headphones. They offer reasonable audio quality, while the 5-hour battery life makes sure you won't be left without an inspiring soundtrack during your workouts.
