    I was surprised to find out that my Note 5 through Verizon didn't come with any ear buds. Does anyone have a clear explanation or reason for this? My brother on the other hand has the S6 Edge+ through Verizon which did come with a set of Samsung ear buds. It's not really a huge deal as most people already have a set of headphones or ear buds. I just found it odd that Samsung is shipping some of it's devices with them and others not (both being flagship devices for Samsung).

    Maybe you got robbed of your headphones for Verizon doesn't include them on their note 5? My note 5 on T-Mobile came with them.

    Verizon is the carrier that didn't include headphones. It's not Samsung, it's Verizon. However, I didn't like the earbuds with this phone (on tmobile), so I use my S5 earphones.

    Last year when I got my note 4 from AT&T it didn't come with the buds. This year my note 5 from AT&T did have them in the box

    You know, given that verizon is so expensive, the least they could do is give us the damn headphones

    I'm on AT&T and got headphones with mine. I have to say that they really suck, and I only use them as a last resort.

    Many companies do this i dont know why at&t switches boxes and then leaves out the headphones. Sprint never takes them out. They leave retail packing as is

    You don't think the sound quality is good enough?

    VZW doesn't include them, but you wouldn't want them if they did.
    Hey, it's the Holidays.
    Go treat yourself to some decent in-ears.
    You don't need to pay much to get in-ears that are orders-of-magnitude better than what Samsung would provide.
    These are extraordinary for $6-7, IMO. These totally smoke OEM phone in-ears.
    These are amazing for working out, still on the cheap.
    These are killer for just over $30 - they are sooooo close to my $100+ earbuds I recommend them to everyone.

    Do yourself a favor, do not fret over not getting crappy earbuds.
    Go treat yourself.
    Merry Christmas!!

    Probably one of the reasons why the Verizon Note 5 is the cheapest of the carriers outright.

    I cannot provide the reason for this decision, but so far on Verizon none of the Notes received ear buds. The Galaxy S always receives them but I think the included head phones are trash anyway. Low audio quality and they won't stay in my ears.


    Not sure if it's still valid but samsung had a promotion with the Note 5 to get a wireless charger, fast portable charger, and level u headphones for free.

    I wonder why Verizon takes the headphones out. Maybe someone might want to use them. I have Verizon, and no headphones in my box either. I do have old ones from my S5 that was also a Verizon phone.

    They were never in the box to begin with. Verizon ordered them from Samsung that way.

    While the tmobile and att ones come with headphones, keep in mind that Verizon is currently (as of this post) $596, tmobile $700, att $740...
