Head to Headphones: Samsung Level Over vs. Beats Studio Wireless

63
Samsung Level Overs versus Beats Studio Wireless

Comparing the high-end cans from the names you know

I have a weird fetish for headphones. I have a handful of sets of my own, ranging from ones I spent too much money on to ones that were cheap but sound surprisingly good. Recently, Samsung sent me a sampling of their new Level Audio gear, and I just knew we had to compare the top-of-the-line Level Over headphones to a set from another company familiar to everyone interested in mobile — Apple's Beats Studio Wireless.

While neither of these headphones are going to suit the serious audiophile (or anyone who likes to play one on the Internet), I can't lie and say either is a bad purchase. Yes, if you came to knock either or both brands and are looking for someone to validate that, you didn't find the right place. Both companies have built headphones designed to be driven by something small — like a smartphone — and they each have their own unique sound. There's a very good chance that you'll really enjoy the sound from either of these headphones, so let's take a look and put them head to head in the categories that matter.

Seidio Ledger Flip Case for the Samsung Galaxy S5

Seidio Ledger Flip Case for the Samsung Galaxy S5

Stylish protection with a somewhat unnecessary kickstand

 

Kickstands on a phone case can be a great way of propping it up to watch videos, use as an alarm clock at night and any number of other purposes. Sadly in the case of this Seidio Ledger case for the Samsung Galaxy S5 the kickstand isn't going to win any awards but the rest of the case is well worth consideration.

Seidio DILEX Case with kickstand for the HTC One M8

Seidio DILEX Case with kickstand for the HTC One M8

And here we have a look at the Seidio DILEX Case with metal kickstand for the HTC One M8. This one comes in two parts — a rubber membrane that loosely fits around the phone, and a more sturdy shell that wraps around and really keeps things protected.

The idea is that the silicone layer helps with shock absorption, and the polycarbonate shell protects from impacts. It doesn't add much bulk to the phone, and the textured sides (as well as their angles) help you keep a grip on things. There's a little bit of a soft-touch feel to the outer shell that helps with that, too.

Amzer Flip Case with Swipe Window for the Samsung Galaxy S5

0

A fantastic value for money way to protect your Galaxy S5

 

If you're serious about keeping your Samsung Galaxy S5 in good condition, then you might well have considered a flip case. The added protection you get from having a physical cover over the screen when it's in your pocket or bag can be worth suffering through some mild inconvenience for. They don't need to cost the earth, either, as this effort from Amzer proves.

Seidio Convert Combo case for the HTC One M8

Seidio Convert Combo case for the HTC One M8

Weekend (or weekday) warrior? You'll want to look at the multiple levels of protection this combo case offers

Not everyone needs the same amount of protection from a phone case, and that's why they come in all kinds of shapes, sizes and materials. The Seidio Convert Combo case for the HTC One M8 tries to split the difference somewhat, giving you three different levels of protection depending on how you put together the parts.

It still leans on the more heavy duty end of the case spectrum, but may appeal to someone who needs lots of protection most of the time, and just a bit less bulk the rest of the time. Read along and take a look at this interesting multi-layer case set for the HTC One M8.

Slim yet sturdy protection for your Galaxy S5

 

Just because you want to protect your Samsung Galaxy S5, doesn't mean you necessarily want to encase it in some bulky absurdity. That's where the BodyGuard Covert Case comes in. What it offers is a well built, sturdy case in a slim form factor that adds almost nothing to the bulk of the phone.

BlueAnt Pump HD Sportbuds review

Blueant Pump HD Sportbuds

A great choice for active people that want to bring their music with them, but casual listeners can look elsewhere

When it comes to Bluetooth audio most people think of small carry-around speakers, but there's also a pretty brisk market of Bluetooth headphones as well. You usually don't seen them packed into more of an earbud-style package, though, but that's what we have here with the BlueAnt Pump HD Sportbuds.

And as the name would suggest, these Bluetooth headphones are targeted at a more active crowd, with plenty of features that tailor to a group that isn't going to go easy on their equipment. BlueAnt has a solid reputation in Bluetooth audio, and it's got a nice set of headphones available here for the right kind of user — read along for our full review.

BodyGuardz ScreenGuardz Pure Premium Glass Screen Protector for the Samsung Galaxy S5

BodyGuardz ScreenGuardz

Screen protectors aren't glamorous, but they still do a job when they're as good as this one

 

The screen protector is arguably the least glamorous phone accessory around but for some of us they're a real device saver. But no-one likes a thin, poorly applied, scratched up and even torn screen protector anymore than we like scratches on our screens. So, stump for something like this BodyGuardz tempered glass option for the Samsung Galaxy S5 that's easy to apply, doesn't suffer from enormous nasty air bubbles and is tough, tough, tough.

Let's take a look.
