    Those old ones go way up in sound quality (and ear stay-in-ability) if you swap the silicon tips with good foam ones (rocking Comply foam on mine) and the difference is night and day.

    I would imagine those new akg's will do better with a better quality foam tip.
    I don't think they make foam tips for these. These are the ones I'm talking about.

    My biggest gripe is that they won't seal in my ear canal. I prefer noise blocking ear buds. I have a cheap pair of AKGs that seal way better than these.

    They sound amazing to me. Added premium foam tips so they can stay in my ears. Amazing sound. Way better than my B&O

    Same here. I think they sound pretty good. The only problem is the material of the ear tips have no kind of grip and they fall out easily.

    These AKG fit better than the Bose (Bose® - SoundSport® In-Ear Headphones ) I have therefore they sound better due to fitting. I did the custom EQ and it made a difference. I'm using google music and apple music and I can say it sounds better with google music. Try different apps to see if you notice a difference.

    I have poweramp but havent opened the app to play from there.

    I think they sound decent after some EQ. Too much bass for me.

    Here's how the headphones that come with Samsung's Galaxy S8 compare to Apple's EarPods

    Samsung Galaxy S8 earbuds vs. Apple EarPods: REVIEW - Business Insider

    Mav.

    P.S. I did not write it, I just report it.
    Pretty good article. The one thing I've been thinking about the earphones is his final 2 sentences "If you’re coming from an older iPhone or Galaxy device, enjoy the upgrade. Here’s hoping this trend continues." I truly hope it starts a trend and they try to outdo each other with each upgrade. We win!

    I miss my Bose (thanks to my dog, I had no idea he could get up on a counter high table ) but this is the first pair of earphones that I did not stuff back in the box. I don't use them a lot as I prefer BT. I consider them a nice bonus with this phone.

    Back to your link, the best part of all was the final video of a man testing the wireless AirPods. I really enjoyed the laugh at him trying to shake them out!

    The mp3 sampling rate also effects perceived quality. Higher quality headphones and earbuds won't make a low quality mp3 sound better. In fact, they will seemingly sound worse because previously you were using lower quality headphones or earbuds.

    With mp3 files, it's 320kbps bit rate or nothing. When I rip music myself I rip it as FLAC for lossless and again at a variable bit rate (but very close to 320) using the LAME codec. That way I got high quality mp3 files for compatibility. With streaming music, first thing I do once app is installed is go into settings and set bit rate for highest offered. I never mess with anything less. If for some reason I'm in area with weak signal and can't stream high bit rate, I'll switch to local files or just stop the music.

    Change your ear tips for the extra big ones from S6 box contents. The bass improves a lot! Now the earbuds are working so fine.

    Still better sounding than any beats headphones lol (i know i know bad idea to say this ahah)

    more seriously though they do lack bass and are not MADE by akg just "tuned" you can easily get better sound from them by adjusting Eq settings or like most people just don't use em unless you have to lol. Personally, my 100$ headset (hyper x cloud II) sound much better than these, so do i think they're worth 100$ nope but do i think they still sound good considering they're included for free ? YES totally i'd still use em if my bluetooth headphones have no charge and i want good isolation as earphones usually seal your ears good enough imo .

    Turn UHQ on in the sound SETTINGS and see if that helps
    Where do you find this uhq setting?

    Under sound, sound quality and effect, then UHQ upscaler. Will only let you toggle it with headphones connected.

    I'm not having any problems with my AKGs. I like them better than the old white ones they use to provide. On the old ones the rubber tips always fell off.
    THAT was incredibly annoying, kept losing the covers, including getting them stuck in my ears a time or two. Went back to the ones that came with my S4, which are still in excellent condition.

    Now the AKGs are my go-tos, I like the way they fit and sound.

    I agree with the OP. I think I may try the ones that came with the S7 Edge to compare quality.
    The ones that came with the S7 Edge are far better than the ones that came with th S8, which are pretty terrible.

    Too much bass? Did we get the same earphones? There's no bass to speak of.

    Everyone's tastes are different. My reference is a Sennheiser HD650.
