Samsung may include Sennheiser earphones with Galaxy S6

Back in the day of the original Galaxy S, audiophiles were thrilled with the Wolfson DAC built into the devices. This, along with a mod called Voodoo Sound, allowed the Galaxy S to pump out some seriously high quality audio that blew other Android devices out of the water. It was great to see Samsung focusing on audio quality.

Though the Wolfson DAC is no longer being used, it looks like Samsung wants to continue the trend of excellent audio quality through other means. Rumor has it that the company has partnered with Sennheiser to include a set of its earbuds with the Galaxy S6. Sennheiser has a reputation for high quality audio gear, so audiophiles should be pleased.

It’s unknown if every model will come with Sennheisers or only with a special edition variant, but it sounds like a good partnership. We don’t know how good a pre-packaged set of earphones can really be, but it’s exciting nonetheless. Do you think Samsung should put a big focus on audio quality? Leave a comment!

    Good to see a Samsung and sennheiser partnership. In my opinion the natural balance of sennheiser sound quality is far better than the over processed sound of beats headphones. I just hope that samsung are going to do something about the awful sound quality of the inbuilt phone speakers as well. HTC have shown the way forward, I think it’s time Samsung picked up the batton and ran with it.

    They can include a home audio system and I won’t buy another Samsung until they put at least one high quality front facing speaker on their phones.
