Pressing the buttons

The volume keys are located high up on the cable, which made it difficult for me to look down and see what buttons I was pressing.

Can launch S-Voice

Because it is a Samsung product after all, you can long press the center button on the volume rocker to launch S-Voice on your handset when your headphones are plugged in.

Available for $275

As a closed-back headphone, users will have to expect a slimmer soundstage. Bass could stand to be deeper, though midrange and highs were decent.
