Just bear in mind that this doesn’t support iOS so they’re technically one of the best wireless earbuds for Androids phones, not iPhones.


Samsung Gear IconX (2018 Edition) Bluetooth Cord-free Fitness Earbuds, w/ On-board 4Gb MP3 Player (US Version with Warranty) – Gray – SM-R140NZAAXAR

The Samsung Gear IconX outperforms its predecessor in terms of battery life. In fact, Samsung specifically intended to improve its battery to address the problems they had with the previous model. That being said, its 5-7 hours is pretty normal overall.

One feature that really sets these apart is its 4GB of onboard storage. This means you don’t even need your phone to listen to your favorite music. Just put the earbuds in the case and hook it up to your phone to transfer music from your phone to the earbud’s storage… of course, without your phone, you are just skipping around between random tracks.

Sadly, these don’t play well with iPhones, because that extra storage would be great if you’re an iPhone user who doesn’t want to splurge on getting an iPhone with more storage.

Continuing with that trend, if you’re an Android user who already uses Samsung’s S-Health app for working out, then these are a great option to keep track of what you’re doing while running or working out. These can track your steps, speed, distance, calories, and even offer real-time voice guidance.
