Galaxy S6 said to come packaged with quality Sennheiser earbuds in the box
Details on the Galaxy S6 keep leaking around the CES expo, and the latest is that it will come with quality Sennheiser earbuds packaged in the box. That might mean an extra focus on audio quality, like the one we witnessed with the Note 4

Samsung usually outfits the Exynos versions of its flagships with a dedicated, higher-quality sound processor, and the Note 4 is no exception. Its Exynos 7 Octa model is granted a Wolfson Microelectronics WM5110E Audio Hub CODEC with a Voice Processor DSP, a teardown revealed, and, coupled with the three directional mics that record high quality stereo audio, makes it one of the best phones for Android audiophiles

Apparently, the Galaxy S6 will carry on that tradition, though at this point it is not exactly clear if those will be exclusive for the "limited" S6 Edge, other editions of Samsung's spring flagship, or the Sennheisers will be present in the box across the rank and file of S6 model numbers. Sennheiser already sells the $60 MM 30G earbuds, tailored specifically for the Galaxy line of flagships, so it's not that big of a stretch to imagine that the renowned audiophile company might have paired up with Samsung to make something similar in mass quantities.

I listen to Samsung Level Over and like it. Just a bit too pricey.

They can. Their level line sounds amazing, (Although overpriced retail, they can be had for about half price online, at which point they are some of the best in class) and the 5 dollar buds we get with galaxy line sound really good for $5 earbuds.

Even if they could, it makes a good marketing pitch to have the Sennheiser brand in the ear buds. Imagine this - samsung makes the normal ear buds, cuts a deal with Sennheiser to use their name and just give them a normal royalty. good marketing for Samsung, some income for Sennheiser.

I agree any company with a lot money can just hire a talented person and team to make a quality product if they want, but like you said it's all about marketing brand and image.

Meh, rather they include no earphones and bring the phone price down. Buying your own is always the way to go.
