Gadget guide: Samsung IconX
A wireless future seems inevitable and Samsung is the latest to try to convince us to ditch the cables.
The IconX wireless headphones for exercise fanatics have all the visual panache of a hearing aid but fortunately they’re so tiny no one will notice. The sweatproof buds hook up to your phone via Bluetooth but also can store music to play without a nearby handset.
With a solid variety of rubber tips, the IconX will stick firmly in your ears, tracking heart rate and doling out motivation. Just don’t try to run a marathon (or even a half) because the rubbish battery life has them conking out after barely 90 minutes. Compare prices
