The battery is covered by warranty, if you've really lost 50% battery capacity in under one year you should be able to get it replaced free of charge. If find that hard to believe though, Samsung themselves said that the battery should retain 95% of its original capacity after one year:

More likely you've got some shitty app or wakelocks sucking all your battery.

WTF? Paying $1200 for a fucking phone. Is this like some sort of "status" thing now, who's got the most expensive phone in the room type thing? Just like the whole "women with the water bottles" thing a few years ago. Really it's a phone, long as it works who gives a shit what it costs. My el- cheapo samsung flip phone still kicks and its a 2012 model. Paid a whole $25 for it to. Fucking sick. Just think, instead of blowing $1200 for a damn phone how's about putting that same amount each year in the bank or money market account. Ten years you'd be 12K richer. Forty years, 48K, and that's before interest kicks in. Be nice wouldn't it to have 48K just sitting there when you retire from your daily job.

at a certain point, wireless headphones are actually decent, but they cost significantly more than wired
Also there's the issue of battery life, but on the flipside of that some really good wired headphones have huge cables that aren't exactly convenient (but most headphones now let you swap cables)
For the most part, wired good headphones for at home, decent Bluetooth when out in public
