Samsung's UHQ Audio Bluetooth headphones with a Lumia 830?

Hi everyone :)

I started looking for a pair of bluetooth headphones to wear while cycling to replace my Monster Purity in-ear headphones (WH-920) with my Lumia 830.

I came across these wireless headphones by Samsung; Level U (http://www.samsung.com/us/audio/headphones/in-ear/samsung-level-u-wireless-headphones-black-sapphire-eo-bg920bbebus/) and Level U Pro (http://www.samsung.com/us/audio/headphones/in-ear/level-u-pro-wireless-headphones-bronze-eo-bn920cfegus/).

I could go for a Level U Pro, but I noticed this line:
"..UHQA is compatible with select Samsung Galaxy devices.."

Does that mean that this feature is exclusive to the Galaxy devices?
Am I going to be able to benefit from that (or any other features like aptX) with my Lumia 830 device?
I tried going through its technical specs and got overwhelmed with compression standards, bit rates and all that Bluetooth protocols :/

Does anyone know anything about this? I've never used Bluetooth headphones for music and I'm not sure how much quality I can expect from that. I know that it won't compare to a decent wired connection but is it going to feel like a cheap set of earphones that *hurt* your brain?
