Mobile World Congress 2014: Samsung Sound OG900 headphones make a tuneful first impression

1:09 /

Samsung isn't best known as a headphone-maker, but these soft, comfy cans seem promising. We go hands-on, and check out Samsung's other new audio kit

What good is music if you've got nothing to listen to it with? That's where these come in handy. They're the Samsung OG900 headphones. We're gonna take a look right now. So, I like the design of these headphones. They seem to be mostly made of plastic. They feel very, very light, and very, very comfortable when you put them on. Halfway down the cable here, you can see there's a remote for controlling music playback. I'm a big fan in particular of this cushioned part of the headband feels very, very soft, indeed. Now, these are in perfect listening conditions by any stretch. But my first impressions of listening to these is that the sound quality is pretty good. It all sounds pretty clear, and it feels like there's plenty of bass in there, as well. They're gonna be out in the next few months. Expect to pay about â?¬200. Samsung has some other on-ear products, too. â?¬300 will get you these large wireless headphones, and â?¬200 will get you this Bluetooth and NFC speaker. What do you think of the design? Let me know. I'm Luke Westaway. Check out CNET.com for loads more from Mobile World Congress.
