Pulling the plug

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

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.
