Oh really? That's disappointing... I was looking forward to having a spare pair of those as the S8 ones were excellent, looks their skimping to save a few quid.. that's a shame considering what my phone cost
Yeah, they're bad. no bass at all! Tested them last evening thinking something has changed since the first introduction with the S8, but it's the same garbage sound.
The old iphone 6s headphones sound much better, the old S7 headphones sound much better. I have no idea what on earth has AKG tunned in these headphones, but someone there needs a medical checkup to their ears. No bass! Lol, even my cheap $12 baseus bluetooth headphones sound better.
Only worthy non rubbish headphones I ever owned are the over the ears sound cancelling AKG N60 I got from my note 9 promo, and are great in my S10 plus. The stock in ear are tinny and very lacking any bass.
