Samsung Will Launch Wireless In-Ear Headphones With The Galaxy S8

This isn’t difficult to believe, as the company already has a foundation there with their Gear IconX. It’s funny to see people accuse them of copying Apple’s AirPods, when Samsung had their own version out since June.

Samsung will launch new wireless in-ear headphones alongside the Galaxy S8. We’re not sure whether they would be bundled along with the smartphone or sold separately, but Samsung is surely looking to put out a product that competes with Apple’s AirPods. Whether or not these new headphones feature Harman audio remains to be seen. We wish that Samsung sticks with a 3.5mm headphone jack for the Galaxy S8. We reviewed the Gear IconX, Samsung’s first completely wireless headphones, and found that it was a great concept but nowhere near an ideal solution to replace wired headphones.
