Samsung Gear Circle review: a runner’s delight, a fashionista’s fright

 

Stuart gives the wireless audio halo, Samsung Gear Circle a run for its money and finds that it's least attractive feature is its appearance.

: Overall then, the Gear Circle ticks most of the boxes when it comes what you’d want out of a wireless headset. That said, the looks do take some getting used to, and the cost is bound to put more than a few people off. : 7.5/10

Try one first.

 

I purchased this for a long flight and I am not sure they are going to cut it, the volume at max, connected to my phone or computer is very low. and the sound quality is pretty poor. I also tried several of the inclueded earpieces and none of them stay...

Bluetooth, and good battery life.

Very quiet,poor sound quality, don't stay in your ear very well.

Should have bought from here

 

Not perfect, but I am liking them more and more each day. I was having to buy new ear buds every few months cause the cable would wear out and one of the bids would quite working. If these will last a year they will more than pay for themselves.

Long battery life- lasted a full 8 hour day fro me at work, plus had enough for me to mow the yard when I got home. Automatically pausing music (at least with samsung devices) when you connect the ear buds together with their magnets. Allows me to talk...

Awkward feeling in my ears. Hoping I will get more use to it with time, but they are different from the buds I have been using for years. a little heavy. it's to be expected, and not that bad, but definitely more weight than just ear buds.

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Mediocre at best

 

I got these as a bonus buy with a samsung phone, which i used about 2 weeks and went back to my iPhone. Anyway, I paid $50 for these and in retrospect I think that is too much. But the battery lasts a very long time and charges fast.

Long lasting battery life, 3 sets of ear adapters, battery charges fast

low bass volume, consistently loses connection with my iPhone, volume does not reach a decent level, tough time keeping the speakers in my ears while walking.
