Best Wired Headphones for Samsung Galaxy Note 9

The Galaxy Note 9 is one of the best phones in the market if you're interested in wired audio. While the industry as a whole is gravitating to wireless audio, there are plenty of fantastic options available if you like plugging in your headphones. The Sony MDR-1AM2 stands out in this category for its incredible sound quality and comfortable fit.

Although Samsung doesn't use a Quad DAC arrangement like LG, the manufacturer has done a great job eliminating stereo crosstalk and enhancing the dynamic range on the Note 9. This translates to less distortion in everyday usage, which makes the Note 9 a great option for wired audio.

That also means that the Sony MDR-1AM2 is perfect for the Note 9. Sony has retained most of the elements that made the MDR-1A a fan favorite while adding improvements in key areas that allow the headphone to stand out.
