Like most smartphones, the Samsung Galaxy S4 comes bundled with a set of in-ear headphones that frankly don't do it justice.
There's a vast array of options for enhancing your listening experience, whether you want a set of budget bass blasters or a audiophile's on-ear cans. We've rounded up five of the best options that'll make your Galaxy S4 produce the music of the spheres…
Slick Distribution SD50 (£30)
Slick Distribution SD50
All right, first things first: the SD50s aren’t perfect. They could be better defined in the bass, for instance. But we think you’ll agree £30 of a pair of on-ear Bluetooth headphones with smartphone controls is something of a bargain. It’s not the slight lack of bass discipline you’ll notice, it’s the lack of wires around your head and just the slightest dent in your bank-balance.
SoundMagic E10 (£35)
Seldom have first upgrades been so obvious. The S4 isn’t alone in coming supplied with in-ear buds that are best described as ‘marginal’, but you can unleash the Samsung’s full potential for just £35. The E10s, all shiny metal enclosures and lovely snug fit, offer the sort of attack, detail and accuracy the S4 loves to serve up. They’re absolute gems.www.soundmagic.com
