Samsung Gear IconX earbuds (various colours)

Samsung creates cordless earbuds for fitness enthusiasts

Samsung has developed a set of lightweight cordless earbuds, known as the Samsung Gear IconX. The earbuds have been designed for fitness enthusiasts and eliminate the problem of a wire getting in the way of exercising.

The Samsung Gear IconX will come at a considerable price, however. In the United States the earbuds will go on sale for $199; this converts to approximately €175/£135, although the price is likely to be higher in Europe once sales taxes are accounted for.

For the money, the earbuds do offer a lot more than just allowing you to listen to music. The Samsung Gear IconX supports a range of features usually associated with activity trackers, such as heart rate monitoring, distance tracking and run-speed recording.
