Samsung’s smart audio brand, Level, is readying a pair of new Bluetooth devices for this summer. Following in the footsteps of the previously released and highly rated over-ear models, the upcoming Samsung Level On wireless headphones offer much of the same but in a smaller, on-ear form factor. The company’s new Bluetooth adapter will offer wireless audio streaming to your car, speaker system, traditional wired headphones and more.
You’ll find the announcement video and more details below:
Also puled pulled from its predecessor, the new new Level On headphones will feature S-Voice, a built-in touchpad on the outside of the ear cup for playback/call control and 6 tiny microphones for active noise cancellation. The new set will have Sound Sharing allowing users to split the input of their headphones with a friend, and it sounds as though the Level Ons will offer up to 23 hours of playback on a single charge. Expect them to ship in 4 colors including white, red, blue and blue/black.
Very similar to devices we have seen from other companies, the Level Link is a small Bluetooth adapter designed to bring wireless audio streaming to any of your older gear that doesn’t have it built-in like the Samsung Level Box. Simply plug your traditional headphones into the Level Link, then pair it with your smartphone or tablet. The same goes for your stereo system, HDTV and other home audio devices. It will come in charcoal black, red, white and blue.
Both items are set to hit store shelves later this month, but we have yet to see official pricing information from Samsung.

Samsung’s Level On Wireless and Level Link offer superior audio experience
SEOUL, Korea – April 28, 2015 – Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd. today announced two new additions to its Level series of smart Bluetooth™ audio products, Samsung Level On Wireless and Samsung Level Link. Designed for music lovers seeking to pair outstanding audio quality with sleek design, Samsung Level On Wireless headphones incorporate the latest Samsung technology to offer top quality sound in an impeccable package. The Samsung Level Link seamlessly transforms traditional audio products into wireless solutions, using Bluetooth™ technology. Available from late April, both products offer easy controls including a customizable mobile application.
“With the Samsung Level series, we have brought together our industry-leading technology and design expertise to deliver users the best possible audio experience,” said JK Shin, CEO and Head of IT & Mobile Communications Division at Samsung Electronics. “The Samsung Level On Wireless and Level Link are built upon Samsung’s longstanding heritage of mobile innovation to expand our range of audio accessories that deliver organic sound quality, superior comfort, portability and style.”
Level On Wireless
Samsung Level On Wireless headphones feature circular ear pads, producing a sleek, sophisticated look and feel. Equipped with six built-in microphones, the headphones feature an Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) function that accurately maps surrounding sounds for a clearer, uninterrupted audio experience and help sending voice more clearly when people talk via phone. A dual-layered diaphragm system helps suppress excessive vibration, reducing noise and enabling the headphones to reproduce rich, balanced sound across a wide range of frequencies
Level On Wireless supports an easy-to-use touch control pad that allows users to activate and adjust a variety of functions such as S Voice, volume, as well as play, pause or skip tracks – all without touching the controls of the paired device. The headphones are also equipped with a unique Sound Sharing function, so users can seamlessly share their favorite tunes with other Level On Wireless users.
Samsung Level Link uses Bluetooth™ connectivity to make a range of traditional audio devices completely wireless. Users simply connect Level Link to earphones, headphones, a set of speakers or a TV, and then pair it to a Bluetooth™-enabled device to enjoy the same high-quality sound they get from traditional audio devices. Providing both Send and Receive modes with a simple switch button, Level Link provides freedom from the hassle of wires. Users can also stream audio to two Bluetooth™-enabled devices at once, so that it’s possible to instantly share tunes with friends. The Level Link’s aptX Low Latency codec provides fast audio conversion for lag-free sound while watching videos.
