I bought this to replace the earbuds (I thought) I lost that came with the Galaxy S8. I found the original (official) one that came with the Galaxy S8, and compared them, and the sound quality of this one is inferior (especially the bass and blocking outside sound). The vendor claimed that this is the same as the OEM, but it is not.

I usually don't write reviews but I was so disappointed with this product I knew I had to. I lost the original pair that came with my phone so I bought these expecting them to be the exact same. However upon use I immediately realized that they had no bass whatsoever ever and made my music sound terrible. The only recommendation I have for this product is to stay as far away from it as possible.

Look the same but Sound differently.
Ok, here I go. It's difficult to be upset since I assumed they weren't authentic by the price alone but I thought I'd give them a go anyway. First note is that I already own a working pair of the original Samsung, AKG tuned earphones and they sound amazing. This pair was purchased for someone else but I thought I'd test them first. Second note is I have a very experienced ear since I'm used to working with pro-audio studio equipment which is where I recognize AKG from.
This pair sounds very different. They do not have the bass response that can be heard in my original AKG tuned pair. Also, the sound is not balanced so they lack clarity between frequencies and your ear can easily get tired of listening at higher volume. Lastly, the fitting to the ear is slightly off.
On another note they sound like typical mid-value earphones. I'd normally spend $15-$20 on a pair like this so at $12 for this pair with free shipping, I feel like I got what I paid for.
Left are my original from Samsung
Right are the ones purchased here on BTA-MALL.

Please trust the negative reviews, I didn't listen and just wasted my money
*WARNING* YOU CANNOT GET A REFUND FOR THIS. I didn't wanna buy the actual headphones at full price, so I bought these and can see why they were rated so low. A lot of times the negative experience others have never happens to me, so I still buy even when the ratings aren't great. I'm really annoyed by these because when I make calls, the person can only hear static. The volume up button stopped working and the sound in the left headphone is less than the right too. I've only had this for a week, so I'm highly disappointed.

I bought a pair of these earbuds to replace the original ones I used to have. It's obvious to me that these are counterfeit. The audio quality is terrible, and even one of the AKG logo's is upside down, which you would never find on a genuine item. DO NOT BUY THESE! BTA-MALL you need to pull this counterfeit product!

THESE ARE NOT OFFICIAL!
The day I received the earbuds I tried using them for a phone conversation and the person I was talking to kept complaining of static. I'd remove the jack and the complaining stopped. Tried that 3 times, before deciding to return! This is the second pair! The first time the left earbud had gone out in two days. Will not be purchasing a third pair!

Cheap Knockoffs, Don't Waste Your Time.
First thing I noticed when I opened the box was multiple made in vietnam stickers now I know Samsung is in South Korea and I looked it up and AKG is from Austria, so the made in vietnam stickers were an obvious red flag. These sound nothing like the earphones that come with the note 8 I tried them out side by side and it is a night and day difference between the two. On it's own not comparing to the AKG ear buds that come with the Samsung I would say its ok, probably about as good as the headphones that come with the iPhone. However for anyone that wants a replacement for the AKG earphones that came with their galaxy phone, LOOK ELSEWHERE please do not waste your time on these they are nothing like the originals. You can feel it when you hold them from the wire just beneath the ear buds themselves, these are noticeably lighter than the original AKGs that come with the note 8.

I read all the bad reviews but bought it anyway, and they were better than expected.
I have only had these for a few hours, but I tried them out. Here's what I found. Keep in mind I rate these appropriate to the low price point. I can not give a rating on durability.
The bass is it's best attribute. The music is fairly powerful and deep. 9/10
Comfort 9/10. I give it this rating strictly because I can listen to music in both ears while in bed with one ear on the pillow due to their unique flat profile. Couldn't find any other IEMs that could do that comfortably. Listening listening normallz it's a 7 or 8/10
Sound stage isn't that good, but this comes from someone who usually listens to 50mm dynamic or balanced armature driver headphones and IEMs. For in-ear, it gets a 6/10
Instrumental separation was surprisingly good. I could single out major instruments easily, but couldn't hear subtle instruments/details. 8/10
Mids and highs are it's weak point. The mids are sloppy, highs are weak, but also close up. 4/10

Not the same product as shipped with the phone.
Do not buy these headphones if you are going expecting the same quality product as the ear buds that came with the S8+.
They are styled exactly the same but the material quality is significantly lower.
I loved my original pair and unfortunately they were broken through no fault in their quality (eaten by the dog). I quickly found this listing and purchased 2 replacement pair.
When they came I initially noticed the cord didnt have the same flexibility and the sound quality wasn't as good.
Dissapointed, but I still may have given them a higher rating. For 10 dollars I didn't know expect high quality. However, after a week one of the ear buds lost all sound. Not even worth the money. Stay away.

Great for those of us on a budget!
These are The best cheap ear buds I have ever bought. I got them originally with my cell phone purchase and when those broke (dog chewed them) I went to amazon expecting to have to spend a lot to replace them, I was very surprised with the great budget friendly price.
