I liked the IconX ear buds that Samsung released last year. The Galaxy Buds, however, have an edge on the IconX: they are lighter. That means they’re less likely to become uncomfortable when you are wearing them for long periods of time. The battery life lasts five hours and the case also acts as the charger. They will recharge from a Qi-enabled wireless charging pad too, and if you have a Samsung phone, you can use Bixby with the ear buds through a few touch gestures.
