The Samsung Gear IconX keeps you moving forward


JOHANNESBURG, South Africa, 21 May 2018Offering a cord-free, ergonomic design, standalone music playback, automatic activity tracking and a built-in Running Coach, Samsung’s Gear IconX earbuds were made for users who are constantly on the move and need a device that can keep up.


Released on April 10, the fitness-focused earbuds’ latest software update makes it even easier for users to maximise workouts – introducing new ways to customise the listening experience and streamlining how users fill the device with their favourite ‘pump-up’ tracks.


For example, the Gear IconX’s new Equaliser feature allows users to quickly and easily adjust their audio’s frequency to optimal levels by choosing from five finely tuned presets: Bass Boost, Soft, Dynamic, Clear and Treble Boost.


The enhanced Ambient Sound function, meanwhile, enables users to specify exactly how much ambient sound they would like the earbuds to let in.



Craige Fleischer, Vice President of Integrated Mobility for Samsung South Africa says, “This makes it easier for users to pay attention to sounds around them, which makes the function especially useful when running or cycling outdoors. When indoors, users may activate the earbuds’ new Voice Focus function, which amplifies the voices of those in their surroundings.”


The Gear IconX’s standalone music playback and 4GB of built-in storage allow users to get in the zone during workouts without being weighed down by their phone. The update’s new Wireless Transfer feature enhances this functionality by streamlining how users manage their earbuds’ music library – removing the need for cables and allowing users to wirelessly add multiple tracks at once.



Gear IconX users may download the update via the Samsung Gear app.
