Master & Dynamic ME05 vs Samsung Gear IconX (2016)
Samsung Gear IconX (2016)
The Samsung Gear IconX (2016) and the Master & Dynamic ME05 are merely passable for their respective price points and don't stand out from their competition in any meaningful way. We recommend that you take a look at some other Earphones that cost around $90.
However, if you're still interested in learning more about these two options, we wrote a short summary of what we know about them:
The reviewers at Android Authority have featured the Samsung Gear IconX (2016) in their Best heart rate monitor earbuds roundup. However, it fell short of making it to the top of their list.
Moving on to the Master & Dynamic ME05: it was unable to reach the very top of any roundups from sources that conduct reliable and unbiased testing. Nonetheless, it still managed to impress reviewers from a number of such sites, like Techradar, Headphone Review, SoundGuys, PCmag, and Wirecutter (NYTimes), enough for them to include them on those lists.
