SAM­SUNG

Herald Sun - Switched On - - GADGETS -

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.
