They will make luxurious starts from US$ 200 to 300 for rich people satisfaction and later you will find same headphones in Promotion Sale cartons in cheap market :D actually in reality their products are not expensive but they just manipulate the prices.

Cost: 9.90 euro. Frequency response: 20-20,000 Hz. That's beyond anything any person can hear. Yet, there's no doubt they sound tinny, broken bass, non-existent mid range and most likely extremely eardrum torturing highs. :D
The LG HBS-Series are superior in design. Regarding audio, I am not able to talk; but considering the track record of Samsung vs. LG in the audio department, I would say LG si superior; especially the LG HBS-900, with the Harman cooperation, which made those headphones sound really crisp, altough with a little lack of bass.
I bought Samsung Level U Pros earlier this year. Broke last week. Dunno if I should buy another Samsung branded wireless headset.

I assume these will be on par sound wise with the Level U Pros. Which was quite decent, but distorted a little at max volume. The worst thing about them is they don't block outside low-end. Actually the opposite, they accentuate it! The stiff cable and long stem piece made them uncomfortable when turning your head. These don't look any better in that regard.

A pair of 5 buck skull candy earphones has numbers that goes beyond anything a person can hear.
Luxor, 07 Aug 2017Dude, its just earphones. You really going there. Fighting over who is first. Lol. No info about freq response, impedance, sensitivity. Just premium sound. More than premium headphones I would call it bixby headphones, as thats main feature, not sound quality. Yes, its not about who first, but who's better. Its audio quality vs. Bixby with so much info as it is right now.

But I'd definitely welcome new ones as with open ear style from sony to hear outside or with bone conduction what may make apple with an ability to minimize noise and maximize voices. Just not the same old made as new cool invention.

Yeeea... Sony first did this like 5 years ago and theirs is more ergonomic and waterproof - nice to see Samsung is keeping up with the times. *slow clap*
Luxor, 07 Aug 2017I believe the predecessor is Samsung Level U. That's why the name is U Flex. You are absolutely correct. It's just that that unlike "Level U", the name "U Flex" looks related to HTC smartphones such as "U Ultra" and "U Play".
