To activate the earbuds, you just need to insert the earbuds into your ears and they will automatically start playing music. You can choose to listen music from your Bluetooth-connected phone or from the 4GB of internal memory. It also incorporates gestures on the back of earbuds to control the music. When you single tap, it starts or pauses the playlist while a double tap goes to the next song. A triple tap goes back one song and you can swipe down or up to adjust the volume.

The new wireless earbuds track fitness information as well as provide users with feedback on their running performance. They provide useful details like heart rate, speed, distance, duration, and calorie burned through the Voice Guide. It can even sync health data with S Health app on your tracker.

A red light will appear on the carrier to indicate that they are being charged. The company claims that the headphones will only last for about an hour and a half when streaming music for your phone.
