Background and Identification
Samsung spans numerous sectors of the consumer market, manufacturing electronics and home appliances, selling everything from a smartphone to a vacuum cleaner. Samsung originated as a company in 1938 when it was founded by Lee Byung-chul in South Korea. The company’s origins are vastly different from its activities today. Samsung started out as a small company with just forty employees that sold groceries, dried fish, and noodles. Around 1954, Samsung began expanding, dabbling in areas like insurance and retail. It wasn’t until the late 1960s that Samsung got involved in the electronics industry.
Among Samsung consumer electronics are the Samsung Gear Icon X SM-R150 in-ear wireless earbuds. These earbuds were designed to provide users with a comfortable and secure earpiece that offers optimal sound quality—all while doubling as a fitness tracker. The Samsung Gear Icon X SM-R150 earbuds have built-in activity tracking technology. They can track information related to speed, distance, duration, heart rate, and calories burned. All of this information is accessible to users in the S Health app. Additionally, the earbuds offer 3.5 GB of storage, meaning they can hold up to 1,000 tracks of music. Of course, they can also pair with a Bluetooth device for streaming. Another convenient feature in the Samsung Gear Icon X SM-R150 is ambient sound mode, which allows earbud wearers to hear their surroundings and make sure they are aware of the world around them.
The Samsung Gear Icon X SM-R150 earbuds include an eartip (available in multiple sizes) attached to a wingtip. These earbuds sit securely in the user’s ear and are completely wireless. They come in blue, black, and white.
