Samsung's new Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus will come with some goodies.

The new phones will pack in a free pair of AKG earbuds in the box, which can also be bought separately for $99. Samsung boasts the wired AKG by Harman brand earphones as a "comfortable hybrid canal fit" for noise cancellation, and made from metal-fabric, to prevent it from tangling in your pockets.

It's unclear how the earphones will perform, but CNET has rated AKG highly in the past, calling the AKG N60 NC the "best on-ear noise-canceling headphones" of 2017.

Samsung fans who shell out an extra $99 for the limited edition bundle will also get AKG's over-ear Bluetooth headphones along with a 256GB memory card.

The phones will be available on April 21 globally and up for preorder on March 30.
