Samsung Gear IconX 2018 (Black) Completely Wireless Earbuds $149.99 - Starts 11/19 @ Samsung.com and Amazon

Starts Sunday 11/19

https://www.samsung.com/us/mobile...40nzkaxar/

Edit: Now also available @ Amazon https://www.amazon.com/Samsung-Co...iconx+2018


$149.99 (a saving of $50) - Black Only (Gray and Pink also available at Amazon for this price)

I was originally holding out for either the Bose SoundSport Free ($249.99) or the Sony WF-1000x (199.99), but the Samsung price is tempting. Note that this is for the updated 2018 model, not the garbage 2016 version which can't hold charge!

If anyone has seen a better deal, or even a deal on the Bose or Sony, please post below! Thanks

Thanks - it looks like it will be around $135 with Corporate Perks (EPP), although I'll wait until you can actually buy at that price before updating the opening post.

Apparently the battery life is much better on this model. The Bose is supposed to have better sound, but my primary use will be for the gym, and a $100 difference is pretty substantial.

I got these a while back for way less, like around 60 ish? the battery life sucks, and you need to carry that pill around to recharge em.
That's the original version, this is the updated version that fixed the battery issue supposedly.

That's funny they call the 2017 version 2018. He must have the 2016 version

I bought these when they first came out a few weeks ago for $250. Love them and they completely outclass airpods (I sold my airpods after getting these). They even sound better than my bose soundsports (which I'm about to sell). You do have to make sure you get a good ear seal though. Without a good ear seal they sound terrible. No brainer for $150

Recently got these at $200. Would recommend if you intend to use primarily indoors - when outdoors the reception is a bit more spotty in my experience.

Yeah I'd never do it but people buy them. My airpods sold for $130!
I did clean them really well though

Any hope for a price match at Amazon or Best Buy for these? I'm looking for an easy return if I do not like them. Does any have any experience with Samsung.com returns?

Your instincts are spot on. Worst refund experience of my life with Samsung.com within the last few months. Unfortunately I'm not sure about price matching part.

I have an iPhone X and a Note8. I used these on my iPhone once and to me the audio quality wasn't as good as when I used it with my Note. I'll only use these when my service is on my Note.
