drag2share: Samsung Breaks Into A New Product Category: Premium Headphones And Audio Devices


Samsung is getting into the premium audio business.

The company announced Sunday night a new line of headphones along with a wireless Bluetooth speaker called Level. Level products will launch globally in the coming weeks, but Samsung hasn't announced finalized dates and pricing for the U.S. yet. However, based on the specs, you can bet these new products won't be cheap.

There are four new products in the Level family. Let's break it down.

The Level Over is the top-tier model. The noise-canceling headphones pair with your smartphone wirelessly using Bluetooth and include touch controls on the side of the device. You can swipe up and down on the right speaker pad to adjust the volume, swipe forward or backward to change tracks, and tap the pad to pause/play.
