Samsung's Galaxy Note 8 is out and will go on pre-order tomorrow (with some exceptions). While the company is offering freebies for those who are pre-ordering Galaxy Note 8, there's one other accessory detail that has been left out in all this buzz. Similar to the release of Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+, the South Korean tech giant is offering the premium AKG earphones with its Galaxy Note 8, as well.
Samsung Galaxy Note 8 brings "premium" AKG earbuds, in the box
Samsung revealed at today's Unpacked event in New York City that the Galaxy Note 8 buyers will get a pair of wired AKG premium headphones free in the box with their phablet. The company had previously announced AKG buds with its S8 duo. However, it's unclear if this is exactly the same pair or if the headphones have been through some improvements too. Samsung was previously selling the pair separately for $99.
- Pure sound By AKG
- Hybrid canal type
- 2way Dynamic Unit
On its website, Samsung adds that the AKG earphones are packed with 11Φ woofers and 8Φ tweeters. "Good music deserves to be heard through good earphones," the company says. Samsung is also throwing in 3 months of Google Play Music to make sure "you can put those earphones to good use by listening to over 40 million songs."
The AKG Galaxy Note 8 earphones are tuned by Harman Kardon. The company was acquired by the South Korea Galaxy maker last year and has since been using its audio wonders to offer better audio experience to the audiophiles.
Samsung Galaxy Note 8 pre-orders start tomorrow and in some cases have already begun. The unlocked device starts from $929 in the US and £869 in the UK. For more details, prices and promotions, check out our updated story here.
