amazon SamSung AKG S8 reviews
The first thing to say is that SamSung AKG S8 headset is a advance of Samsung, not in similiar with any of its previous headphones. This is a product to be ordered for production. That shows the company’s remarkable investment. We will go over the design details of AKG s8.
The outer surface of the AKG S8 earphones has a prominent AKG logo, the glossy plastic housing contains the earphone driver connected to the audio pipe that is tilted to one side, the finnter plate is made of metal mesh, the body of the headset has small holes help sound more detailed, soundstage more open, very real hand like some popular lines of ATH, Sony.
Compared to the headsets bundled with previous Samsung smartphones in particular and many other brands in general, this ear has a much better finishing quality.
The upper part has plastic part that adjusts the wire size, the junction part made of plastic stamping letters is very compact, creating a sense of seamlessness for the design part.
The bottom of the earphone wire is quite well completed with a fold-resistant anti-broken fabric that makes the wire softer, more flexible, increases durability and prevents underground breakage. It feels quite sturdy and can not help but remind me of the QuadBeats that I have had the opportunity to experience before that was sold with LG devices. However, there is a minus point that you just need to touch the part of the string, the rustle propagates on your ears right away, therefore when moving uncomfortably.
Keys, controls with microphone
Samsung akg s8 has a built-in control mic cluster compatible on many mobile devices, the front consists of the play / pause, volume and forward keys. At the same time use the Google Now function easily. For other phones like Iphone can still use the play / pause, microphone, back and forth keys but the vol key is not compatible on IOS. SamSung quite attention to the user feel when designing the button is a bit floating, press gently and elastic but plastic is a bit creaking.
Compared to the earphones for Samsung Galaxy S7 and use the cable instead of the rubber band as on the series of headphones available in Samsung phone boxes ever.
The bottom is the 3.5mm straight jack section with prominent Samsung imprinted logo.
To be fair, the design of SamSung AKG s8 is more complete than any bundled headset on the market. Shows a remarkable effort of SamSung despite many shortcomings.
Feeling first when wearing AKG S8. I feel pretty clinging ears, beautiful and strange design. Gentle and comfortable wearing with the ability to remove background noise from the silicon tip. The appearance of the AKG brand makes users have high expectations for this headset.
To analyze the sound quality of the AKG S8 headphones objectively, I used 2 common sources: Samsung Galaxy S8 and Apple Iphone SE. I use familiar test tracks like Hotel califfonia: PCM 1411kps.
The bass range of this headset is more about quality than focusing on quantity: the bass is firm, neat, down quite deep, melts quickly and the bass force is only moderate. If Samsung S7 headphones only focus on mid-bass vs high-bass range with soft bass, then with AKG S8, each bass part has a clear shape, a larger sound field. This point is evident when playing music through Apple Iphone 6s Plus, the bass range is much more rounded than playing music from Samsung S8.
If you are a Basshead or passionate about vibrant sounds, the vibrant Dance, Pop, EDM music lines will make the listener less satisfied when you just peel off the machine, but after about 2 days burn in headphones to control the bass clearly. Naturally, the software in the sub-bass of this headset will give a pleasant and comfortable listening feeling, suitable for country, acoustic and classical music types rather than the type of bass that plays a lot in volume and melts immediately.
The midrange range on the AKG S8 is a bit fuzzy, dry, colorless, and focused on detail. The high-mid is pushed quite high, but the low-mid is somewhat faint, the male vocal in Hotel California is not definitive.
The Treble range is probably the strongest sound strip on the AKG S8 – it’s better than the previous peeled headphones that I’ve ever experienced and no less than the B&O Play rival from the LG V20. In contrast to the normal mid range, the high range is energetic, bright, smooth, sparkling and focusing on handling the lower-treble to create a sense of airy space.
Due to that, the detail, soundstage is also improved, more spacious and this is also a strength of this headset!
Summary of sound quality: The tone is quite dark, the bass range is good, the level of detail is quite good
– Bass: compact, taut, thick but not deep, slightly vibrating
– Mid: slightly blurry
– Treble: high definition, many intervals still suffer from harsh phenomenon
To be fair, the effort to produce Samsung’s AKG S8 headphones is worth recognition when it tried to perfect the product to every small detail. It represents a serious investment by Samsung to provide the best user experience. AKG S8 is perfectly matched with a super product like SamSung galaxy S8, with perfect processing quality, striking gray tone design and found no faulty details. If you’re not a music geek or too picky, then the AKG S8 can meet your music needs, or do it better, because these headphones are inherently good. Customizable based on the music needs of the majority of users to fit a large market.
+ Good processing, high level of finishing.
+ Push button, simple design easy to use
– The sound quality is not good, bass is suitable for strong bass, EDM, Rock
