Samsung is showing off their audio chops with three new premium headphones and a Bluetooth speaker. The Level series by Samsung includes the Level Box (Bluetooth speaker), the Level In (in-ear headphones), the Level On (on-ear wired headphones), and the Level Over (over-ear wired/wireless headphones).

Having a desk with a minimalist approach is something I strive for. My current setup isn’t as minimal as it should be, but it’s a work in progress. Naturally when I met with the Just Mobile team at International CES 2013 last month and learned a bit about its HeadStand and Slide products, I just had to try them out.

I’ve wanted a wireless headphone/headset for use on my PC for years. I came really close to buying one of the cheaper Sennheiser models, but also had looked at some Sony IR and Bluetooth models as well. In the end, I convinced myself that it wasn’t worth it.
