Top critical review
3.0 out of 5 starsOnly negative is lack of IOS App Functionality
Reviewed in the United Kingdom 🇬🇧 on 21 August 2022
I actually really like these earphones (perhaps not as the stars indicate) and I think they represent tremendous value for money considering their features and having the Samsung brand. Noise cancelling is excellent and they're very comfortable, and I can recommend it enough that I bought 2 pairs whilst they ran the cashback offer. If you have an android phone then this is an excellent purchase and you can stop reading here.
My annoyance comes from the lack of IOS app, restricting its use for no reason other than pettiness between Apple and Samsung. (To be clear Apple are just as guilty for doing this with AirPods). You can't update the firmware of these buds without installing the android app, so you'll need a friend with an android phone if you yourself have an iPhone, and you can't customise any gestures or EQ balance again, without an android device. I just find it a great shame that the consumer has to pay for this, because even with these major shortcomings they work great on iPhones and are still great value for money - it just could be so much better.
