Samsung Level Over Noise Canceling Wireless Headphones
The new Samsung Level Over wireless over-ear headphones offer both wired and wireless connectivity. These versatile headphones are the perfect solution for audiophiles who appreciate both premium sound and the freedom that wireless technology has to offer. The Level Over works with Samsung Galaxy smartphones and tablets or any device with built-in Bluetooth technology or 3.5mm connectivity.
Premium Studio Sound
The Samsung Level Over headphones feature a 50mm bio-cellulose driver unit equipped with a neodymium magnet for high definition sound with deep, rich bass response at any volume. Used primarily in professional reference headphones, neodymium magnets are 30 percent stronger than regular magnets, enabling clear and sharp sound production.
Active Noise Cancellation
Active noise cancellation blocks unwanted ambient noise by adding noise cancelling signals to the playback sound making the Level Over perfect for busy environments, air travel and taking calls on the go. While most noise cancellation functionality is implemented either with an analog circuit or a digital signal processing block, the Samsung Level Over utilizes an analog/digital hybrid scheme to create superior active noise cancellation. Additionally, Samsung Level Over Active Noise Cancellation includes a specially designed EQ circuit to maintain the sound color even when the cancellation function is engaged.
Classically inspired design gives the Level Over a serious yet fashion-forward look. The built-in, button-free controls and complementary ear pads and headband make this headset perfect for the modern, on-the-go audiophile.
Ergonomic and Comfortable
Designed by Samsung for hours of listening comfort, the Level Over features ergonomic noise reducing ear pads and a soft breathable headband cushion.
Superior Bluetooth Audio
The Level Over streams audio from any Bluetooth-compatible device for high quality playback on the go without the inconvenience of cables. Utilizing the advanced APT-X audio codec, the Samsung Level allows for real time streaming of the highest quality stereo audio over a Bluetooth connection. (To maximize the performance of the Level Over noise canceling wireless headphones the source device must also incorporate the APT-X audio codec. )
Samsung Level App
Use your Samsung Level Over wireless headphones with the Samsung Level app. It provides additional features such as SoundAlive (Sound Effect), Volume Monitor and Text-To-Speech when connected with Samsung Bluetooth headphones. (Some features in this app may not be supported depending on your device. ) Developed by Samsung, SoundAlive is a specially tuned up sound equalizer developed to provide a richer, fuller sound by optimizing settings for a broad range of music genres. SoundAlive can be set to change automatically with each song or adjusted manually to create a more unique experience. With 25 different sound effects, including rock, pop and jazz, you can tailor your music to your various moods and musical tastes.
Technology Meets Versatility
Smart Touch Controls allow you to skip tracks, adjust the volume and answer calls with simple finger gestures on the Touch Panel integrated into the side of the earpiece.

Style: Both the Bose and the Samsung are over the ear headphones. I prefer over the ear to on the ear; they just seem more comfortable to me. The first thing you'll notice about the Samsung is that they are bigger and heavier than the Bose. Since the Samsung has Bluetooth and a number of controls built-in that makes sense - they have to put the electronics somewhere. At first I thought the weight would be an issue but I can't tell the difference between the Bose and the Samsung when I'm using them. Both are very comfortable. This is a subjective subject and I'm putting pictures up to help you decide which you prefer. For me, it's a tie.
Connectivity: This is where the two headphones differ - significantly. The Bose headphones are wired. You plug them into the source, turn them on and you're done. The Samsung is wireless and can be wired. As a wireless (Bluetooth) headphone the Samsung easily pairs to your source so you can listen without being plugged in. I've used the Samsung headphones with my Android phone, an iPad and an iPod without any problems. I've been as far as 25 feet from the source and didn't lose connectivity. For sources that don't support Bluetooth the Samsung includes a 3.5mm audio cable to plug into the headphone jack; I've used the cable as well and it works as expected. The Bose headphones come with a long (about 5 feet) audio cable which, frankly, is a nuisance for me because I'm usually using them to listen to something that's either in my hand or in my pocket. I've gotten the cable tangled up and unplugged a number of times. The clear winner in this category is the Samsung because I'm not anchored to the source.
Power Source: I'm undecided on this one. The Bose runs on a AAA battery. When I'm on the road I pack a spare battery. Bose claims a battery life of 35 hours which sounds about right. The Samsung has a rechargeable battery that lasts about 15 hours depending on your usage and if you have the noise cancelling on or not. That's not bad and it comes with a USB charger cable so it's easy enough to recharge on the road. I just keep thinking the battery in the Samsung will conk out half way into my flight and I'll wish I had the Bose with a spare battery. If I use the Samsung on a trip I'll just make sure I charge it the night before.
Features: Other than noise cancelling the Bose QuietComfort 15 is featureless. I don't mean that as a bad thing - they do what they're intended to do. I should note that the Bose will work with your iPhone but, I don't have an iPhone. The Bose, and the Samsung come with a connector to plug into an airplane's entertainment system. The Bose's main feature - noise cancelling - is exceptional, especially at lower tones. They virtually eliminate that constant engine drone in an airplane. I've even used them without listening to music. The Samsung is feature-rich. Unlike the Bose you can turn the noise cancelling on or off on the LEVEL. Side note on noise cancelling - I think the Bose does a slightly better job at this than the Samsung.
When you're using the Samsung with a Bluetooth connection you can control the source from the outside of the right ear cup. Tapping the center is play/pause (note - this takes some getting used to), sliding your finger up and down controls volume and right/left moves up/down a track. Because you aren't anchored to your source this is a big plus. The Samsung also works with your phone. If you have an Android phone, Samsung has an app for the LEVEL. The "SoundAlive" option lets you control the treble and bass. You can either use an easy-to-use preset or, if you prefer, you can set specific adjustments for 3D, Bass and Clarity. I don't use my Android phone often as a music player so I'm not sure I will be using this feature often but it's nice to have.
Samsung is the clear winner when it comes to features.
Sound: At this price point you'd expect very good sound and you won't be disappointed. I found that both the Samsung and the Bose produce excellent sound. I preferred the Samsung a little more than the Bose but the Bose won't disappoint you. If I was to switch to an Android based source or if Samsung released their app for Apple products I'd probably give Samsung the edge but, as it stands, I'd say it's a tie.
Road Worthy: I've already discussed the noise cancelling features and the ability to plug into an aircraft's entertainment system but the size issue comes into play again. First, both headphones come with travel cases. Nice cases, semi-hard and they should do a good job of protecting your headphones. But, the Bose headphone cups fold in which allows the case to be much smaller than the Samsung case. The Bose case is 2 inches high at it's highest point - the Samsung case is almost 4 inches high.
Overall: I like both headphones and I'm lucky that I have both products so I don't have to choose between them. But, if I had to, I'd choose the Samsung LEVEL over the Bose QuietComfort 15 because of the features and the Bluetooth connectivity.
I've been in the market for noise cancelling bluetooth headphones. The only good option were the Beats Studio Wireless. I ordered them but wasn't really happy with the quality when taking into consideration the price I paid for them ($341 because they were on sale). They were OK, but not nearly $400 worth.
I randomly stumbled upon these headphones and started checking reviews like crazy. Most reviews seemed favorable so I figured to take a try. I always figure I can take the headphones back. I put these headphones on and INSTANTLY noticed a huge advantage over the Beats Studio Wireless. The first thing was that there is no hiss. With the Beats, if you listen to your music low, or just have the headphones on for the noise canceling, you can definitely hear a hiss. It actually becomes quite obnoxious. You also have the option to have the noise cancellation on or off...with the Beats you don't have that choice. If the headphones are on, the noise canceling is on. Why might you want to turn off the noise cancellation? Well if you have the headphones up and aren't in a place where you need noise cancellation, save the battery by turning the noise cancellation. Do not expect these things to cancel out all outside sound. It's not made to block out voices and things, but background sound will be toned down or eliminated. IE... at work, with the music off, I can hear myself typing on the keyboard and I can hear if people are talking, but I cannot hear the air conditioner and voices are lowered a great deal.
The sound in these things are amazing. If you have an iPhone, you're kind of out of luck, but if you have an Android phone (NOT JUST SAMSUNG PHONES) there is an app that accompanies the headphones that will allow you to use an equalizer. You can use that and/or another equalizer if your phone has that built in. I have the One Plus One and I use both the Samsung Level equalizer and the built in equalizer on the phone. I've been able to achieve a GREAT balance of the sound for me. I prefer clarity with powerful bass. The Studio Wireless did tone down the bass so it wasn't over bass-heavy and these headphones fall in line with that.
The battery on these things is pretty great. On the Beats Studio Wireless, if the battery dies, you can't listen even plugged in via the headphone jack. Not so with the Samsung Level Over. If the battery is dead, plug in the headphone jack and keep going. I've been listening to the headphones for the entire work day and the battery meter is still well over half.
So what are some of the negatives? The headphones don't fold. They have a hard shell case, but the case is rather large. I'm not going to try and test durability with my own set, but they do seem to be more rigid than the Beats Studio Wireless. I'd say as more people get the headphones, search Youtube for a Samsung Level Over Stress Test.
One benefit to Samsung entering a difficult market is that you should be able to find these lower than the $349 price. Sorry Amazon...I bought them at Best Buy for $279.
Overall, I am very happy for my purchase. Some people balk at the price, but as much as I love my Audio Technica ATH-M50, them being wired is pretty annoying. These will now be my on-the-go headphones.
- Bluetooth connectivity is excellent
- Ability to control your player by tapping and swiping on the outside of the right ear cup is incredibly useful (only available over wireless connection)
- Sound quality is damned good over Bluetooth and even better when using the cord
- If battery gives out, you aren't dead in the water, you can plug in the cord (though noise cancellation requires power)
- Battery life is very long, even after sitting in the case for weeks
- Noise cancellation is really good - some reviews have said they fall short of Bose in this regard, and that may be, but in my experience they do a very nice job of drowning out the drone of jet engines
- So comfortable - even though they have some weight, the padding is so good that you aren't irritated by awkward pressure points
- Great looking
Don't love it:
- Case is huge! So are these cans for that matter and they don't fold down, so they are gonna take up a big chunk of space in your bag (easily worth it though)
- Not cheap! I bought them a while ago and paid significantly more than current price. No regrets. Can't imagine having done all that travel with my Bose ear buds. Once you've gone active noise cancellation and over ear comfort there's no going back.
