The path of least resistance makes for an easy upgrade

from Good Gear Guide

In Samsung’s efforts to lean into everything that worked about the original IconX, they’ve pivoted away from everything the product could be. They’re successful in that they improve upon the original, but every step of the way it’s clear that Samsung took the road of least resistance in achieving that outcome.

Samsung wireless headphones now a stronger rival to AirPods

from Cnet

Samsung's Gear Icon X 2018 is a small, comfortable-to-wear, totally wireless earphone that has improved battery life and a smaller charging case than the previous model's. Samsung has improved the second-generation Gear Icon X to become one of the better totally wireless headphones, especially for Galaxy phone owners.

Sound quality is good for athletes, bad for connoisseurs

from PhoneArena

The Samsung Gear IconX 2018 is a good set of truly wireless headphones. They offer reasonable audio quality, while the 5-hour battery life makes sure you won't be left without an inspiring soundtrack during your workouts.

Fully wireless with decent sound quality

from Wired

At $200, the Gear IconX (2018) are $40 more than Apple’s now-famous AirPods, but overall aren’t wildly expensive, given their capabilities. They offer some solid fitness features and 4+ hours of battery life per charge. I just wish I didn’t feel the need to lug the bulky clamshell with me every time I use them.

Solid sound quality and battery life now equals AirPods

The original Gear IconX earbuds were clever, but their dreary battery life cut them off at the knees. Happily, Samsung has addressed that for the Gear IconX 2018 edition, and suddenly they’re a lot easier to recommend. While some might miss the heart rate monitor, the ability to go longer periods without having to worry about charge makes it a worthy sacrifice in my eyes.

Now they're worth the price

The IconX 2018 headphones don't change in core features or sound quality from the originals, but dramatically improve on battery life and software consistency.

Have more stamina, no heart

from Tom's Guide

With improved battery life, Samsung's upgraded Gear IconX is a solid pair of wire-free fitness earphones. The $200 buds fit perfectly (in my experience), sound great and now can last for a few days' worth of workouts on a charge.

Now catering to longer workouts

from Android Headlines

Gym and fitness-focused users will certainly get more out of them than other users but generally speaking, as a new Bluetooth headphones option, they are worth the asking price. What is more difficult to answer is whether you should upgrade to these if you already own the original model.
