I've had these for two years.
Good audio quality, only downside is that you can't disable the start/stop when you move the headphones on/off your head. Micro-usb b charging port.

This is a Samsung company fyi.
I have these since they came with the Gear VR package when the Galaxy S8 came out. They were okay for that minimal usage, but would not recommend buying them. I am currently wearing them(just put them on for this), but they fall off easily(even with a big head) and don't feel the greatest(they hurt my ears after a while). Sound is pretty good though.

Yeah, people are realizing that Samsung can make great things and they also make a lot of, well, not great things. Caveat emptor.... Bigly.

The better Samsung's competitors patents, the more great Samsung can make their own 'things' *wink*

This is a Samsung company fyi.
Samsung acquired Harman / Kardon, the parent company for AKG and JBL. However, Samsung has retained the established production lines of HK. To point out the AKG N400nc wireless earbud still has a better build and sound quality than the Samsung earbud. Harmon / Kardon is one of the OG brands in HiFi sounds. Top tiered fully optioned Mercedes Benz AMGs are rocking the Harman / Kardon speaker system.

"Top tiered fully optioned Mercedes Benz AMGs are rocking the Harman / Kardon speaker system." I believe that's what's referred to as "badge engineering". If you were to tear into that system you'd be unlikely to find any components beyond the badge which are actually labeled "Harmon Kardon". And if you did, it's all part of the marketing ploy.

I've always been a big fan of headphones, and I've done a comparison with this headphone, which is mainly about high-quality sound, exceptional durability, and the AAC codec. The earmuffs use memory foam (I believe all headphones have memory foam for this function), and it has 33 hours of battery life, which I don't agree with. There are very few headphones that can reach 33 hours of battery life, so I I think this is a bit exaggerated. In addition, it is not recommended to play games with this headset, but this headset is comprehensively compared to other headsets, I can accept it, thank you OP

I'd still prefer to have a Harman Kardon, Bose or Bangs and Olufsen speakers in my luxury car than a no-name brand. And yes, brand recognition is there for a reason and this does not happen overnight. The reason any premier brand gets recognized is its proven track record, quality control and higher-than-standard performance. For sure some name brands have degraded over the years but that's a totally different conversation. Now the important question is, did you own any Harmon Kardon audio system to make such a pessimistic comment about the brand?

I think Mercedes premium audio system is Burmester.
