Samsung U Flex
HEADPHONES REVIEW

The Samsung U Flex are decent wireless in-ears for most use cases. They sound decently well-balanced if a bit sharp on some tracks, and have an around-the-neck design that’s a bit bulkier than most but flexible enough to fit into some pockets. They have a decent battery life and an excellent wireless range but struggle to isolate in loud, noisy environments. They’re also fairly limited in customization options if they’re not paired with a Samsung device which is a bit disappointing.

The Samsung U Flex are decently well made wireless headphones. They look more premium than the Level U Pro, and although they’re a bit bulkier, they’re more flexible so you can fold and squeeze them into a pocket. They also have a decently comfortable in-ear fit with angled earbuds that fit well within the contours of your ears. They’re easy-to-use with a simple control scheme that’s efficient and provides all the essential functions. Unfortunately, the slightly larger design makes them a bit unstable at times. The neckband would pull on the earbuds causing them to slip out of your ears, once in while, when doing more demanding physical activities like jumping jacks.

The Samsung U Flex look pretty good and well built. They feel a bit more premium than the Level U Pro thanks to the silver accents on the on the tips of the control modules. However, they’re quite a bit bulkier which makes them stand out a bit more than the U Pros, which won’t be for everyone. On the upside, the in-ear buds also feel well-made and have magnetic backs that stick together to make them more manageable when not in use. The only part of the Flex’s design that feels a bit cheap is the earbud cables, which are thin and do not look as durable as some of the other around-the-neck designs like the Bose QuietControl 30.

The Samsung U Flex like the Level U Pro, are decently comfortable in-ear headphones as long as you don’t mind the around-the-neck design. The neckband is considerably bulkier, so you feel it around your neck a bit more when working out than you would with the U Pros. As for the earbuds they have a decently angled fit that doesn’t put too much pressure into the ear canal, but they’re still fairly conventional in-ears, so if you’re not a big fan of in-ear designs than you will have some of the same issues with the U Flex.

The Samsung U Flex have an efficient button layout and control scheme. They provide call/music, track skipping, and volume controls. They also have a dedicated button for voice assistance. The buttons deliver good tactile feedback, and they’re easy to find by touch. However, skipping tracks is done by holding the volume keys which may not be ideal for some but you get used to it fairly quickly.
