Samsung Level In headphones review

Samsung Level In Headphones

These are nice headphones, but there are other really nice headphones out there that don't cost $149

Samsung is finally getting in on the premium audio game with its "Level" series of headphones and speakers, which were recently announced for the U.S. It's offering offering up four models in the series — Over, On, In and Box — that bring high prices and presumably high quality to those who have an affinity for the Samsung brand and some disposable income.

I managed to pick up a pair of the Level In earbuds, which retail for an extremely hefty $149.99 in the U.S., and use them for my daily headphones for the past few weeks. Samsung is definitely making a step in the right direction with these high-quality earbuds from both a design and material perspective, but the Level In headphones are still a luxury purchase for a limited audience — read along for the full review.

The HUGE savings continue on HTC One M8 Dot View Cases!

Get it for $29.95 - Save 40%!

In case you missed our announcement earlier this week, we reduced the prices on the popular HTC One M8 Dot View Cases for a limited time.

The original plan was to end the sale today, but since we've seen soooo many HTC One M8 owners scoop these semi-transparent flip cases up we decided to extend the sale a few more days. If you haven't grabbed one yet, do it this weekend while the sale is still on!

Our store team made sure to bring in more Dot View cases, so we're stocked up on every color including warm black, imperial blue, baton rouge and orange popsicle. Be sure to grab the one that suits you best and enjoy the 40% discount while it lasts. Or heck, get one in every color. At this price, you can't go wrong!
