On the Level

This week saw the announcement of Samsung's new Level headphones ($150+), clearly an attempt to compete with Apple's Beats. The bulky, old-school design may look a bit retro, but the over-the-ear premium cans are packed with all the latest technology. Featuring a a Bluetooth speaker box and earphones, the system can be synced with a variety of Samsung's musical apps and services (such as Milk Music). It remains to be seen if the company can become a real player in this musical field, but we'll be listening for any new developments. —Adam Albright-Hanna
