In some ways, the Gear Circle is more like a piece of wearable technology than a pair of headphones. The design of these 28g wireless headphones is such you can wear it as a necklace, with the two magnetised earpieces working as a clasp. Install the Samsung Gear app and you can also ask spoken notifications to be sent to the earbuds, reading out text messages and more. Of course, they’re also handy as wireless Bluetooth headphones, with an in-app equaliser and touch panel to adjust volume. Notifications won’t work for Apple smartphones, however, and runners may appreciate a plastic arm to keep earbuds in place.
