Audio experience was something that the Galaxy S7 was nitpicked for and we can all agree that though it was a masterclass of a smartphone, there were some gripes worth mentioning. Hopefully, Galaxy S8 is able to remove these complaints and cater to audiophiles in the best manner possible. According to leaked images, a very high-quality pair of earphones are expected to debut with the announcement of both Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus, so let us check them out.

Earphones that ship with rubber or plastic insulations tend to wear out much faster so we have high hopes from these new ones. As you can see, they have the brand name AKG printed on them and if you were still skeptical about whether or not these would actually be bundled with the flagships, leaked hardware specifications of the Galaxy S8 Plus show that these accessories are going to be a part of the smartphone.

At least that’s something you’re getting from your hard-earned money because we know for a fact that a wireless charging pad or the DeX dock is not going to available for free so the least Samsung could do was provide these. The truth is no one knows how rich of an audio quality these earphones will be able to deliver but we have confidence that these are going to be much better than the ones Samsung packaged with earlier iterations of its flagships. The acquisition of HARMAN Electronics could also mean that we could get specific high-quality audio components for future mobile devices, but for now, let us wait for the arrival of these accessories to see how they fare against regular earphones.

We have a feeling that the Galaxy S8 will also be incorporated with a DAC, but it is not clear if it will be a 32-bit Quad DAC chip like the one present in the LG G6. At the very least, the audio experience of the Galaxy S8 should be such that it trumps its predecessor in this department.
