In a news release on Monday, Samsung announced four new audio products, which will be available from mid-May in most markets. No pricing was mentioned, but the release repeatedly uses the word premium, so don't expect them to be cheap.
The Level series includes the "flagship" Level Over over-the-ear wireless headset, the wired on-ear and in-ear variants called Level On and Level In respectively, and the Jambox style external speaker, the Level Box.
According to Samsung, the Level Over has features such as active noise cancellation and touch controls, and uses a 50mm dynamic driver. There will also be a companion app, the Samsung Level, which will give users control over the equalizer and audio effects to tweak the sound for different usage scenarios.
Both the Level On and Level In are smaller, wired headsets, and Samsung claims that they offer natural and clear sound, and a full range of rich audio, respectively.
The Level Box, meanwhile, has features like NFC to quickly connect to phones, and a 56mm stereo speaker promises to be reasonably loud. According to Samsung, the Level Box will provide 15 hours of continuous playback. If it actually delivers that much without compromising on the audio, that's pretty good.
According to the release, while the series will be available from mid-May, the availability of each Level series will vary by market, so for now, it's not clear which, if any, of these audio devices will be available in India.
"Samsung understands the importance of music and audio in the lives of our consumers," said JK Shin, CEO and Head of IT & Mobile Communication at Samsung Electronics. "With the Level series, we have crafted an incredible line of audio products designed for the mobile user with organic sound, premium design aesthetics, and optimized mobile audio controls."
