The OG900 has two variants: a regular size, and an extra-large version with bigger ear pads and a quilted headband cushion.

Lightweight with a smooth plastic construction, the Sound OG900 sports a minimalistic look that was supposedly inspired by pebbles.

Due to two hinges on its armatures, the headphones are foldable, making it easier to carry around.

Its detachable cable ends in a straight plug, and it includes a volume rocker that can also play, pause, and skip music tracks.

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.

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.

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.
