The tinny speakers on your smartphone are no good for listening to music (HTC One owners, please ignore), so Samsung has decided to offer you a new audio option. The Samsung Level series consists of four mobile audio products – Level Over, Level On, Level In, and Level Box. So what the heck are they? Here's a hint: the names describe their relationship to your ears.

The Level Over are over-the-ear headphones with Bluetooth and big 50mm Neodymium drivers. A step down from that are the Level On headphones, which sit on your ears and have a 40 mm dual-layered diaphragm. Then there are the Level In – can you guess what they are? Yes, earbuds packing a three-way speaker system. The Level Box is the odd man out – it's a wireless Bluetooth speaker with 56mm stereo speakers and a passive radiator. All the specs you can handle are just below.

There will be a Samsung Level app in Google Play and Samsung Apps specifically for the Level Over with custom EQ settings and effects. S Voice is included with all these products, a selling point for users of Samsung devices. Although, users of other devices ought to be able to plug them in and hear sound coming out of the other end.

So that leaves us with two questions about Samsung Level: when and how much? On the first count, around the middle of May in most markets. As for the price, your guess is as good as ours. Samsung neglected to list the price in the PR, so we'll have to wait and see.
