Comfort In ear
Here’s one thing that’s important – how the earphones feel inside your ear. Here I’ve got nothing but good news – at least for my specific ear canals.
The Samsung AKG earbuds and earphones provide an incredible sound quality isn’t spectacular, the AKG earbuds perform well enough for most day-to-day listening when you just want to pass the time on the train. The earbuds provide the essentials including a tangle-resistant cable, spare ear tips, and ergonomic design.

With earphones tuned by AKG with tangle-free, fabric cable. 8mm and 11mm speaker units for clear, balanced sound. Included earbuds that are good enough. They have a long reputation for producing quality audio products.
SOUND QUALITY :
The safe route would have been to release a warm, bass – heavy headphone that would appeal to a Beats, Bose, or sony consumer. Warm signatures are fun, pleasant, and often instantly impressive to the ear. I have owned and loved plenty of different warm headphones over the years.
With these, however, Samsung AKG Earbuds went a different way.
A much different way.
This is hilariously flat and balanced pair of headphones. The mids and highs are nicely crisp, natural, and musical. Bass is accurately rendered, but just a bit back in the mix. The result is something that feels like a brighter, Audio –Technica SR series signature. They’re never quite fatiguing, thank goodness, but with a little more top-end energy they would be. They have enough bass to still be a pleasant listen. They’re detailed enough in the highs to reveal flaws in your recordings/music files.
It’s almost starting at first. They sound exactly the opposite of what you’rd expect. There’s just enough thump to know the bass is there, but that’s it. The real focus is on preserving the detail and clarity of the detail and clarity of the music. The push in the mids and the highs gives these a slightly more open and airy quality than I’d normally expect from IEMs, Which is great.I like the sound here, and bass heads will hate them. They work well across a wide Variety of music genres, but they’ll never pound you in the chest and stomach with bass.
These are a very nice quality headphone to be included with Samsung galaxy s8. Samsung Earphones corded tuned by AKG (Galaxy S8 ans S8+ inbox replacement).
BUILDING AND FUNCTIONS
The cables don’t detach, sadly. The ear tips use a pretty standard barrel so finding replacements should be easy. Comply foam tips should work without issue here.
Inspite of the long-winded name, the IEMs just say “AKG” on the sides. The cables coming out of the ear phones are standard rubber-coated cables, with an adjustable coupler. After the junction point, the cable is a nice durable-feeling braided tangle free cloth material. The plug end is straight.
