After a few easy steps, you’ll have all your favorite music bumping in your ears without being chained to a desk! And if you're tired of some of your old tracks, you can delete them just as easily as you can add new ones.

Tips and information

Keep these tips in mind before you start transferring your favorite songs to your earbuds.

  • The Gear IconX may not play music files not transferred via the Galaxy Wearable app or Gear IconX Manager. It may be necessary to use the Gear IconX Manager to synchronize the music stored on the earbuds.

  • The Gear IconX support the MP3, WAV, WMA, and AAC file formats.

  • You can save up to 1,000 music files on the Gear IconX (approximately 4GB Storage).

  • If you plug the USB connector into the Gear IconX charging case, music cannot be transferred to your earbuds. You must connect the connector to multipurpose jack on your phone or tablet.

Add music files

  • We'll walk you through transferring all your tracks using your phone, tablet, or computer, so you can get started on more important things, like picking the perfect playlist.

    Note: Do not change the destination folder name or create a new folder. Music files stored may not play if any changes are made to the file directory for the earbuds.
