The Bluetooth-enabled earphones have AI assistant integrated into it. There is also a noise cancellation technology installed in it.
Bixby is currently holding a tight competition against the other AI assistants including Siri, Google Assistant, and Alexa. Though the Bixby has been launched in the U.S. it has a certain limitation when it comes to the English language. The company has Bixby-powered connected speaker and others developed so as to help carve out a name in the market.
The South Korean technology giant basically wants Bluetooth earsets that are powered by the Bixby to help improve the smartphone utilization level. The convenience level of using the device is eased.

The earsets will let the user give commands and receive accurate answers from the Bixby even if they are not anywhere close by the smartphones.
