It appears that Samsung has come out swinging in the “Let’s beat Beats” game. Say what you will about Beats audio quality (I do), you cannot argue with their marketing genius. They hold about 60% of the headphone market – which makes them a prime target. Samsung has released two new headphones, an earphone and a portable Bluetooth speaker to counter Beats. The “Level” audio line is appropriately named the Level Over, Level On, Level In and Level Box.
The Level Over is their primo headphone featuring Bluetooth, active noise cancellation with four mics to cancel outside sounds. Also, users can control volume, navigate tracks, pause or stop music, answer and end a call using the side of the headphones. It can be customized using the Samsung Level App to alter the audio. The Level Over sells for $349.99.
The Level On is an on-ear, wired compact headphone with soft cushioning in a foldable ergonomic design for mobile users. The Level On sells for $179.99.
The Level In is – you guessed it – an in-ear, wired headphone that with a three-way speaker system that controls treble, mid-range and deep bass. The Level In sells for $149.99.
The Level Box is a compact Bluetooth speaker that will stream from any Bluetooth device. The design is optimized for noise reduction and echo cancellation, with a built in 15-hour rechargeable battery. Also available is Near-Field Communications (NFC), volume/play/pause buttons, and a HD built in microphone for phone or conference calls. The Level Box sells for $169.99.
All Level products will sync with Samsung’s Milk Music Service for Galaxy devices. Visit Samsung for more information.
