Thinking about picking up a Galaxy S8 or S8+? Already have yours? Cool, let's get the party started with some banging sound and video!
The Galaxy S8/S8+ are the first devices to incorporate the latest spec of Bluetooth - Bluetooth 5.0. What does that mean for you? Among other cool features, it means you can share your tunes, videos and movies with a friend...via Bluetooth and Samsung Dual Audio! You read correctly - you can SHARE your Galaxy S8/S8+ sound output with multiple paired Bluetooth devices. No wires. No splitters. No fuss. Enable Dual Audio and your sharing the sound output via BT.
Samsung Galaxy STurn Dual Audio "ON."8/S8+ Dual Audio can pair and play simultaneously on two different BT devices. Simple as that. That means you can keep the party grooving inside and outside when you pair two BT loudspeakers. It also means you can share some 'flix -n- chill marathons with your friend on a long flight without worrying about getting tangled in cables or carrying a fussy stereo splitter.
Simply pair each BT device one at a time and then power on each paired device nearby your S8/S8+. You will be prompted to enable Dual Audio. You're all set!
One of ways that I utilize DuBeats Studio Wireless vs Plantronics BackBeat PRO2s.al Audio is to test out two different BT headphones. In the past when I tried to do an 'A-B' comparison I had to connect one BT headset, listen, pause, disconnect, pair a new headset, go back and listen again, disconnect, repeat. Maybe I'm being trivial, but it really helps to literally play the same song simultaneously on two different headphones. I can switch back and forth as often and fast as I wish, listening to critical passages.

The Galaxy S8/S8+ comes with some pretty sweet earbuds to help you get the personal jam started. I've always like Samsung earbuds as far back as the S3 and Note 3. They always sound pretty good for 'also-included'. Now that Samsung has taken ownership of Harman they are able to equip their devices with some high-quality accessories. AKG, a pro-sound subsidiary of Harman, lent their industry leading audio expertise to the in-box earbuds that come with the S8/S8+. Sweet!
I dig that the AKG earbuds are wrapped in tangle-free fabric cord. They are super-easy to wrap up, stuff them in your bag or pocket, and not have to worry about looking like a newbie trout fly fisherman when you try to untangle them for use. Plus, with their ear canal ergonomic design they funnel the sound where it counts. For a more in-depth review of the AKG Samsung earbuds check out the write-up from Forbes.com's Ian Morris.
