Samsung announced the updated version of the headset back at MWC 2015, bringing with it a few notable improvements over the Galaxy Note 4-specific model. The version built for the Galaxy S6 is 15% smaller overall, and is significantly lighter and more comfortable, as well. The touchpad on the side of the device has been recessed, making it easier to locate, and the back button is now more tactile than before.

We went hands-on with the headset at the big trade show, and we’d suggest checking out our first impressions video if you’re considering purchasing one. If you’re interested, follow the links below.
