And no... the stock buds that come with a phone aren't good. They're terrible. Quite literally the only good things you can say is that they put sound in your ear and it's possible to buy worse ones at a 7/11.

Lol the Rezound headphones are nice actually.

I remember the Rezound. Came with those little baby Beats headphones. They're passable, sure. Above average for stock headphones, even.

Nice? Capable of hearing the differences between the G3/S5/M8/Z2? Worth keeping instead of buying even $50 replacements? Capable of telling when an mp3 is encoded above 128? HELLLLLLLLL no.

I'm not a Beats hater either (well, I do hate their audio hijacking of computers, but the headphones are fine). I am, however, a guy who takes headphones fairly seriously and has to chuckle when someone talks about audio output quality and they're using the earbuds that came with a phone.

The music and calling sound are great.
With Play Music, there's no interruption between tracks, and music is smooth and natural with 192kbps ogg vorbis.

They sound a lot better than the beats solos I bought. I returned the solos because of that.

Debating between this phone and the S5 (likely to be getting one of the 2 this weekend) and sound quality is the big deciding factor for me, I'm replacing my 2.5 year old Droid RAZR Maxx which honestly wasn't all that good in sound quality (thru the use of Poweramps Equalizers I was able to get it passable), I'm looking for a phone with the sound quality comparable to the Tab 2 7" or the old Samsung Galaxy PLAYER 4.0 with voodoo sound and poweramp (I miss using that since it's sdcard slot died, it had great sound), do either the S5 or G3 compare to either of those?
