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!
