The Best Headphones for Samsung Galaxy S10+

The ‘Big Guy’ from Samsung, the Galaxy S10+ comes with an astounding Dynamic AMOLED touchscreen and a phenomenal camera. The Galaxy S10+ continues to be the best Android flagship in the market.

If you’ve just got your hands on the Samsung Galaxy S10+, now is as good a time as any to invest in a good pair of headphones to complete your smartphone experience.

We’ve divided this guide into three sections based on what kind of headphones you may be looking for as well as for what purpose. So whether you are looking to use a basic mobile headset for taking calls, need the convenience of Bluetooth or you’re a passionate audio enthusiast looking to maximize your music enjoyment, you should find the right choice here!

 

What you should be looking for?

Sound Quality: The sound signature of every device is typically mentioned among those small icons on the collection page. Pick the earphones that give you your desired sound signature.
Sound Signatures in a nutshell.
1. Extra Bass: Bass is pumped-up a lot. Mostly tends to overpower the other frequencies.
2. Warm & Smooth: A slight boost in the bass. Other frequencies can easily be heard.
3. Bright: The opposite of warm & smooth. Here, the treble is slightly boosted.
4. V-Shaped: Both the treble and bass are boosted while the mids are reduced. Balanced: No one frequency is boosted.

Compatibility: Apple, Android or both? It shouldn’t matter as much. A wireless in-ears tends to deliver universal compatibility.

Build: The design is important not only in terms of looks but also durability and usability. Features like minimal flat cables, a neckband or no-neckband fit and metal housings and accessible microphone signify good built and design.

Warranty: It is nice to feel secure about your belongings. When you are spending so much, expect a good after-sales service. Longer the warranty period, more durable the product (or service you can expect). Only original products come with a warranty, so beware of fakes! All products sold on our website carry a manufacturer's warranty and you can read more about warranty here.

Sweat resistance:If you need a workout buddy, you do have a few options. Look for a device that provides IPX-rated sweat resistance as well as a good fit.

Battery life:A battery life that will last you for a day would be an ideal pick, won't it?

Here, we’ve tried to create a list of the best earphones keeping all these features in mind.

Here's the Headphone Guru's Handbook to choosing the perfect earphones, headphones & true wireless earbuds for the Samsung Galaxy S10+.
