The first Level On headphones had a detachable cable and now they've gone all the way with the wireless Bluetooth edition. They feature 40mm drivers and active noise cancellation technology. Playback is controlled via a touchpad on the side of the unit, which also works to adjust the volume and engage S Voice when used with Samsung Galaxy handsets. The battery life for wireless use with noise cancelling on is a more than acceptable 11 hours and with just Bluetooth and no noise cancellation it's just short of a day's play with 23 hours of battery life promised.
