PLAYER SLAYER, 21 Mar 2017I said that I'd prefer a separate USB-A to USB-C charging cable over a pair of cheap earbuds. ... moreu would prefer that is that what majority of the consumers want? no, so samsung wouldnt give a shit what u alone think but im saying both will be included so y complain?
Davood57, 21 Mar 2017Wow Samsung can't make quality headphones/handsfree itself while SONY produces it's own handsf... moreyeah its sad really. Samsung has to buy talent. JBL, Bang and olfusen, and AKG are among the best brands in the audio world among audiophiles. It's a big move from samsung that might actually pay it's possible the AKG earphones are going to be one of the best.
Sony on the other hand has to innovate everything by themselfs in-house. They've made some of the best audio equipment in the world such as the legendary mdr10 made from real wood.
either way AKG is a well known brand probably one of the best brands in the world. I'm not surprised if samsung has stellar soudn quality from now on.
sony needs to step up its game.
RaghavaZ, 21 Mar 2017Because Samsung doesn't make audio equipment and have no experience in making them. And Sony i... morei agree with your statement but AKG is a well renown brand in the audiophile world known as one of the best out there. Sony used to make legendary headsets but not anymore.

Earphones/headphones quality depends on the drivers present in them, not because of what you have mentioned here. Some really great earphones doesn't have flat wires, metal encasings like Sennheiser Momentum In-Ears and Shure SE215. Learn a few things about earphones and headphones and then call someone as a kid.

And Sony is legendary in that segment even before the advent of smartphones. As far as audio equipment and cameras are concerned they are among the best. In that you can't and shouldn't compare Samsung with Sony.

My S6E isn't quite by any standards. If you feel volume is so low use an amp/dac. Regarding AKG branded earphones coming with S8, i expect them to sound lot better than the previous bundled ones, but not to the levels of audiophile grade ones. "They did not flat wires, aluminium body, metal parts to reflect quality of good in ear headphones." These are minor things as far as quality is concerned. What matters the most is drivers used in them that decides the quality of earphones. Flat wires is just used to avoid tangling only. Shure SE215, Sennheiser Momentum in-ears don't have flat wires, metal enclosures, aluminium bodies but still they are great earphones. First you know about earphones and their parts and their usage before calling someone kid.
Wow Samsung can't make quality headphones/handsfree itself while SONY produces it's own handsfree for Xperia lines,and as well makes headphones twice as price of Galaxy S8 itself

Go ahead, I can't afford to deal with foolish people tbr
Joonius, 21 Mar 2017Sure, but some people just complain about volumes and pro-claim themselves as audiophiles...True audiophiles don't listen to MP3s. They go for lossless audio. Nevertheless this is just for mobile music. To have a true audiophile experience one needs a proper amplifier like a good Class A mosfet system to play a perfectly recorded music thru an audiophile CD player. Nothing along the line should corrupt the music.
I don't care for what stock earphones that come with any phone. They're mediocre earphones.
I use my $200 Sony balanced-armature XBA-A1AP earbuds and they sound superb with any Galaxy S6 and now my S7edge. Gonna use it with my next S8 as well.
FREQUENCY RESPONSE : 5Hz - 25000Hz with 9mm dynanic drivers with an in-line microphone and remote to answer calls.
When you pay for a high-end phone, you also pay for high-end accessories. If you cannot afford it, look elsewhere. Simple.

It is the best audio system Samsung ever made. 4 stereo speakers tuned by AKG. What more can you ask for? You want high end headrphone included in the box too?
