The Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ feature an additional speaker at the top of the phone for stereo sound with much better bass performance, less distortion at high volumes and access to Dolby Atmos surround sound technology.

The devices also allow users to set up their own preferences for listening and once the Dolby Atmos feature is activated, there are three presets, for Movie, Voice and Music. The movie sound mode is out of this world, especially when combined with the 18.5:9 edge-to-edge ratio display, which curves over the phone, offering a fully cinematic view.

The Adapt Sound feature optimises the sound settings for a user’ ears. The Samsung Galaxy S9 is also backed by the in-house SoundAlive, which lets users’ amp up the audio output. It comes with a 9-band equalizer, which lets you adjust the frequency from 63Hz to 16kHz and from a range of 10dB to -10dB.

The Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ include a number of accessories, including a pair of AKG headphones worth R999, which take the personal theatre experience to the next level.
