It might be safe to say that Samsung had a pretty good 2017. The release of its flagship devices -- the Galaxy S8 models and the Galaxy Note 8 -- saw the world’s biggest vendor of smartphones finally move on from the Galaxy Note 7 mess it had to endure during the previous year. And even if the Galaxy Note 7 recall did not happen, the South Korean tech giant’s newest additions to its Galaxy lineup of handsets are still awesome products in their own right, as any owner can surely attest.
But for those who are still looking to purchase a new Galaxy S8 or Galaxy Note 8 unit, they might be delighted to know that Samsung is launching a new promotional deal for the flagships that promises to give away a pair of AKG Bluetooth on-ear headphones, completely free of charge. Strictly speaking, buyers can get the free headphones if they decide to purchase either a Galaxy S8, a Galaxy S8 Plus, a Galaxy S8 Active, or a Galaxy Note 8 smartphone.
Considering that a pair of AKG Bluetooth headphones usually fetches for a price of $180, this new special offer from Samsung is certainly not a bad deal. For those not familiar with this product, they can be used both with and without a wire. Not only can the AKG headphones be used for consuming media (audio tracks, movies, and TV programs), they can also be used for making or taking phone calls.
Still, it pays to be aware of the caveats. For one, the promotional deal will only last for a period of exactly one month (specifically, it runs from January 16th to February 16th). Also, the new Galaxy device has to be purchased from either Samsung’s official website (samsung.com), or by way of the Shop Samsung app. Unfortunately, the AKG Bluetooth headphones are not included with any Sprint carrier device.
Various high profile smartphone releases recently have opted to do away with the traditional audio jack. Because of this, Bluetooth headphones are starting to become more in-demand than usual. True, the latest Galaxy flagships do still feature audio jacks, but the free AKG Bluetooth headphones (which can be used both with and without a wire, as mentioned earlier in this post) should still prove a handy and flexible acquisition, especially for users who are thinking of using the headphones with other handsets of a different make or model.
