Till dated Samsung note 123 all of them had poor quality earphones can we expect some good quality stock earphones out of the box.

What do you think ?

People actually use the stock earphones!?

Mine have always been kept in the box, I have a semi-decent pair of earphones that I use daily. To be honest though, I doubt any phone ships with earphones that are actually worth using over even a fairly cheap pair of third party set.

So I wouldn't advise you rely on the Note 4 shipping with anything impressive!

We've companies like Iphone Apple earphones are decent,Nokia Inear ear plugs stock (lumia610) are excellent.
I also have my note 2 earphones still inside my box unused and I currently own a Nokia Coloud I am happy with them.

Consider it a bonus if they do. Highly unlikely that you will get a set of earbuds worth talking about. I personally don't care for them since I have my own Bluetooth earbuds.

I both have note 2 and note 3 headphones also s4 and s5 headphones and i love them. For me note 2 and s5 headphones are the greatest. Note 2 headphones has great bass and treble balance. ( Actually it has the best bass over all sammy headphones ). Using them with 63 db kernel headphone boost and viper4android for clarity.It has poor cable quality though. This is my third in two years. S5 headphones are great too with 60 db of course. Music gets too loud on 63 db. Note 3 headphones are also great with 60db boost. In all of them s4 has the crappiest ones. Although it 'doesnt suck' at 57db i wouldn't prefer them.

My Tmobile Note 3 came with headphones.

You buy a $700 phone.... why would you not invest in some good earphones if you even like them?

Many providers don't include headphones anymore.

Correct. They provided earphones, not headphones.

I've never used stock earphones from my S3,S4,S5 Note 2,3,4. Always use the best earphones.
