Despite rumors ahead of its unveiling, the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus do have a 3.5mm headphone jack, and they even ship with a pretty good pair of AKG headphones. But those headphones aren't for everyone, and some are going to want to get a new pair of headphones for their new smartphone. So we've rounded up some of the best headphones available for the Galaxy S8 below.
Bose QuietComfort 35 Wireless Headphones
These are some of the best wireless headphones on the market right now. The Bose QuietComfort 35 (or QC35 for short) also feature acoustic noise-cancelling which actually works really well. Many people like to use these headphones on flights, as it drowns out the sound of the plane, and allows you to just relax. These are Bluetooth, so you don't need the 3.5mm headphone jack anyways.
Beats Solo3 Wireless On-Ear Headphones
Here's another pair of great wireless headphones for the Galaxy S8. This time it's the Beats Solo3. These are great because they offer great sound quality, but also have incredible battery life, clocking in at around 10 hours of continuous usage, before needing to be recharged. That's pretty incredible when you think about it. They are also available in a few different colors.
AKG Pro Audio K67 TIESTO DJ Headphones
Perhaps the included AKG earbuds aren't what you are looking for, and you want a pair of actual headphones, well the K67 TIESTO DJ Headphones from AKG are a great option as well, and they don't break the bank. Normally coming in at under $50, the K67 TIESTO DJ Headphones are lightweight and provide incredible sound.
Symphonized Wraith Premium Genuine Wood Headphones
What about some wood headphones? Symponized has a great pair here, which use wood on the outside of the headphones making them look great while still keeping them comfortable. These are wired headphones, so you will be using that 3.5mm headphone jack, but that also means better audio than via Bluetooth, as usual.
V-MODA Crossfade Wireless Over-Ear Headphone
Whether you are an audiophile or not, you'll appreciate the sound coming out of these headphones from V-MODA. These are their Crossfade Wireless headphones, which means you don't need to plug these into your Galaxy S8, since it does connect over Bluetooth. They come in a few different colors, and also offer around 12 hours of battery life, which is pretty impressive for such a lightweight pair of headphones. You can also fully charge them in about an hour and a half.
Jaybird X3 Sport Bluetooth Headset
The Jaybird X3's are said to be some of the best Bluetooth earbuds around. These are great for taking to the gym since they are sweat and water resistant. They are also super comfortable to wear and are available with a slew of ear tips so you can choose the perfect ear tip for your ear type. These offer great battery life, clocking in at about 8-10 hours, depending on usage.
Honstek In-Ear Earbud Headphones X6
This pair of headphones here feature noise cancellation, which is a bit interesting for a pair of earbuds. These do use the 3.5mm headphone jack, so you don't need to worry about charging them before you want to use them. Additionally, the Honstek In-Ear Headphones have inline controls for taking calls on your smartphone, as well as adjusting the music.
Beats PowerBeats3 Wireless Headphones
The PowerBeats3 from Beats is definitely a good pair to consider for the Samsung Galaxy S8 or the Samsung Galaxy S8 Plus. These are great for going to the gym seeing as they are sweat-proof but they also stay in your ear quite nicely. Which is definitely important when you are at the gym doing some cardio or even lifting weights.
