We reported a few months back that Samsung was readying new Bluetooth earphones to compete with the Jaybird X2. The company has now listed Level Active Bluetooth earphones on its US and Canadian websites. They aren’t available for purchase right now, so we’ll have to wait to know the price tag.
The Level Active (EO-BG930) are behind-the-neck Bluetooth earphones with a splash-resistant P2i coating so that they can be used during workouts without any possible damage. They have a design that’s quite similar to the Jaybird X2 and a lot of other products in the category. They have built-in microphones, so they can be used to take calls on the go. Music playback can be controlled using the remote.
These earphones come with three sizes of eartips, an earhook, and two sizes of wingtips. Earhooks and wingtips can be used interchangeably for a perfect fit. Another interesting feature of the Level Active is that users can click the ‘Level’ button for one second to launch S Health, Timer, or to know the current time. The earphones will be available in black and white colors.
Thanks for the tip, David!
