Samsung launches U Flex bendable Bluetooth headphones

Samsung announced new Bluetooth headphones on its website. They are called U Flex and can bend by 100 degrees. They come with a dedicated Bixby button, which, sadly, cannot be remapped. If your phone supports S Voice, it will work perfectly fine too.

The earphones have two-way speaker units with 11 mm woofers and 8 mm tweeters for powerful bass, deep mids, and clear highs. The Samsung website also states the speakers guarantee crisp, balanced sound but we doubt any company would say something else about its audio products.

What is impressive, though, is the proprietary Scalable Codec tech, that is available if the connected smartphone runs on Android Nougat 7.0 or above. The Samsung U Flex continuously analyzes interference from Wi-Fi signals and filters it to optimize the audio performance and the Bluetooth connection.

The flexible headphones can vibrate on calls and notifications and have up to 10 hours of battery life. They are splash resistant and have the usual power buttons, volume rocker and the microUSB port on the side.

They will come in Blue, Black or Ivory color but the price is yet to be revealed.
