Samsung Levels Up with New Level Series of Audio Products

Just hours ago, Samsung officially unveiled the Samsung GALAXY K Zoom. In addition to this smartphone/camera hybrid, the company also took the opportunity to announce a new series of premium audio products called the 'Level' series. 
 

Pictured here is Samsung's Level series. (from L-R) The Level Over, Level On and Level Box. Beneath the Level Box is the Level In.
 

Part of the Level series is the Level Over, Level On, Level In and Level Box. The Level Over is Samsung's flagship over-ear headphone, offering features such as an ergonomic design, touch controls and wireless Bluetooth pairing. Inside each earpiece is a 50mm neodymium Dynamic Driver for excellent sound reproduction capabilities. On the outside, its structure is made from Bio Cellulose to minimize unwanted vibrations. Best of all, the Level Over makes use of active noise cancellation to keep the noise out and music in.
 
That's not all. The Level Over's functionality can be enhanced further if you're pairing it with an Android device that has the newly developed Samsung Level app. With this app installed, users can fine tune their listening experience by enabling a variety of EQ options.
As for the Level On, it's also an over-ear headphone, though with significantly less features than the Level Over. It's powered by two 40mm neodymium drivers that have dual layered diaphragms. The Level In on the other hand, is an in-ear earphone. Its three-way speaker technology offers rich audio quality with clear sound separation.
 
Finally, we have the Level Box, which is a compact Bluetooth speaker. It sports a metal grille, which protects a single, 56mm stereo speaker and a passive radiator. Together, these two provide audio that's crisp and balanced. With an integrated microphone that has noise reduction technology onboard, the Level Box makes for a good solution for conference calls. The Level Box is also equipped with NFC technology to allow users to easily connect their smartphones to it.
 
Here's a brief breakdown of the specifications of Samsung's Level series: 
  
  
The Level series will be available sometime in May, worldwide. Local pricing and availability remains to be confirmed.
