Seems like a really good price.
These are the 2016 model. There's a new one out Samsung is calling 2018 version.

Potentially dumb question: Will these work with Apple iPhone? As in, are they a regular bluetooth earphone ... just made by Samsung? Thanks

Probably why its on sale. I'd skip, The Reviews we're all over the place for this.

Yes, But I'd go with the Airpods. I know these are only $50 but the reviews are all over the places. I'd thought about getting these before the AirPods were out. I love my pair of AirPods and the way they work with iOS makes it worth the premium price of $150.

Yeah, the $50 is tempting but the potential of not being able to pick up calls is a huge problem.

Never used airpods. Are they good for working out? Water proofing? Also any advantages of them for iOS over other Bluetooth headphones?

Thanks

I have these and use them with my iPhone 7. They work for calls, and music sounds great. Only downside is the lackluster battery life. It lasts me about 2 hours and have to be put back in the case to charge.

27% 1 star ratings on Amazon whereas 4 and 5 stars are 19% & 24% respectively. Doesn't give the warm and fuzzies.

Anyone have these can answer a question please?

Do I have to have both running at the same time, or can I do a switch off? One at a time while the other is charging type deal? I cant use both at the same time at my job, but they will let us use one in one ear. I know, go figure. Anyhow, thanks for the help.

Yes, you can use them one at a time.

I own these and there's a serious design flaw that I suspect is the main reason why there are so many refurbs and these are being cleared out at 25% of the msrp. The earphones DRAIN inside the charging case.

The sound quality is good and the battery life is as advertised when you have a full charge. Unfortunately, you probably wont have a full charge unless you keep the charging case and headphones plugged into a charger at all times. Otherwise it doesn't take too long before they're dead which defeats the portability. This is well documented on the samsung forums and samsung has stayed quiet on the issue with no sign that they intend to fix it. Buyer beware.
