    P.S. Shameless plug - I mentioned Airpods - if you don't have a pair, they play nice with Samsung and they ARE my favorite headphones and probably my favorite product Apple has made in the last 5 years. Can't wear them for a super long time because of the fit but they are my going out headphones all the time.
    Agree, airpods is one of the best products from Apple in recent years. I use them all the time with my iPhone and for me personally they fit great and comfortable. The most comfortable out of all the wireless ear buds (have used them all). Worst is the pixel buds which sounds great but fit was horrible for me. Have used the Gear icon X as well but for now with my Note 9 and Android phones I have settled with Jabra Elite 65t.

    Didn't care for the Gear Icon X myself. Don't really like the earbuds that go inside your ear. Regarding Airpods though, I hear people all the time tell me they don't like them because they are uncomfortable. That tells ms that they have never tired airpods and are judging them solely on how earpods (the wired ones) fit. I say this because, there really is no way to "try" air pods unless you buy them. You can't test them at Apple stores or like Best Buy, and unless you have a friend that will let you try them.....yeah I'm going with 90% of these folks have never tried Air Pods.

    I HATE ear pods. Literally the WORST headphones in existence if you ask me - and the culprit is the cable. The tiny, tiny bit of weight you get from that dangling cord is enough to F those headphones into oblivion. When I bought the Airpods I expected to hate them too, based on my experience with Earpods, but I got them because everyone was raving on them so hard. But yeah, I love the Airpods.

    Okay, sorry Apple rant over.

    For what it's worth the wired earbuds fit perfectly for me and I love them as well just for the fit. Earpods/airpods and Bose earbuds are the ones which are most comfortable to me personally. I buy and have used ton of them over the years, in terms of comfort earbuds Apple and Bose were top for me. But that depends from person to person, for my wife the apple ones doesn't fit properly at all. May be she has weird ear shape or may be mine is but in my house itself we have exactly opposite scenario. Fits perfect for me and super comfortable, for my wife exact opposite.

    Disagree, I tried Airpods on 2 occasions and couldn't bring myself to keep them. Both times they were super uncomfortable after 30 minutes to the point where the back of my head and behind my ears were hurting. They may work for you but many people have had this same issue with headaches due to the fit. Its hard plastic sitting inside your ear with no cushioning.

    I still say that MOST people probably judge them based on how earpods feel. And there is a difference. But that's fair if you actually tried them and didn't like them then fair enough.

    Anyway, back on subject. I like the AKG set.

    The way I read the terms, it sounds like the number of gifts are still limited to the number stated in the promotion. The gift card would apply if they run out of headphones before the number of allocated gifts are reached. I'd guess it's a way to cover themselves in case of an unresolvable supply issue.
    Those terms have always been there (it's pretty standard for any promo). The difference is that in the past they HAVE stated an actual number of available gifts (like with the free Netflix year and Gear VR headsets). This time around, they do cover their bases in their legal lingo, but there is no set (not publicly) number, which doesn't necessarily mean they'll 'run out' more than 'we have reached enough orders to where we are better off not giving these away and just giving you the money so you can spend it on overpriced stuff on our site' (remember, these are selling for about 200 on Amazon, not the Samsung-stated price).

    They are way ahead of schedule it seems. Mine were set for shipping week of Sept 10th and they arrived today. Seems like they are going out in batches too as others getting them same day. Probably get yours later next week.

    When I first looked at the promotion details well before the release date, it actually did state a number for both items. I wanna say it was 114k or 144k for the headphones and something like 50k for the fortnite vbucks. I don't see that anymore but it still says a limited quantity. They may have changed it since. My guess would be due to the severe delays with the 512 blue units. Hard to say, but it still says limited quantity. Either way, I doubt they will be giving away eCertificates. I certainly wouldn't count on it anyways.

    Well I played with the headphone for a couple minutes only cause I wanted to charge them and I think they sound great. But I can only compare them to my LG tone bluetooth headphones that's sit on back of neck and pull the ear buds out and put in ear. These akg sound 100x better lol. I usually dont like on the ear headphones or whatever these are called but they seem comfortable but I'll have to test that out longer later. They way better than these wired headphones that come with the phones. So compared to what I've been using I got one hell of great deal lol.

    This is false. These headphones are widely regarded as one of the best noise cancelling sets for 2017. Check out a great review on them from Jared Busch on youtube.
    So my opinion is false? By that reasoning your opinion and Jared Busch's opinion is also false.

    The headphones when used in wired mode lose a LOT of the punch they have when in the Bluetooth mode. Not really feeling that part of it...You would think you would get better sound quality when using the audio jack.

    I got the headphones yesterday and I have to say I'm impressed. They sound great! I also have the Sony 1000XM2, and I think the Sony and the Bose are the best ones out there. And I also dont agree with Flossy Carter, these are no $100 headphones, I would say $200.

    Check if any EQ settings kick in when you plug in the cable. That can greatly affect audio through the headphones (like Dolby... or using Spotify's EQ on top of the phone's EQ on top of Dolby)

    Yeah I think they sound better thru bluetooth than when plugged in. But I haven't messed with the settings yet either. I'll mess with the Dolby or whatever settings next time I try them

    Damn. I was listening to the headphones while doing dishes and as soon as I took them off I realized I had developed a headache. Anyone else get a headache from them? Might be because I'm not used to these type of headphones.

    I registered for the AKG headphones on Aug 28th, and received confirmation today (3 days later) that it will be shipped the week of Sept 24th.

    It seems everyone is getting the same standard shipment date - hope it comes earlier!

    Just got my headphones today. Wow, these are great. Admittedly I'm not an audiophile (I have a pair of Beats Solo 3, which I'm told is amateurish). But the noise cancellation on these headpphones is pretty great.
