I participated in an Influencer Activation Program on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Sprint Sound Sessions. I received a sample of the HTC One to facilitate this review and a promotional item to thank me for participating. As always, all opinions expressed on this site are my very own. Please be sure to do your own research, as your opinion may differ.
Have you ever heard the saying “music hath charms to soothe a savage beast?” Not that I am comparing myself to a savage beast, but music certainly plays a role in setting both my temperament and emotions.
When I’m working in my office, I often listen to music played off my smartphone. I mostly listen to 80s music. Lots of songs from that era feature fast tempos that help me get into a groove when I’m writing. When I’m in the kitchen, I’ll play hits from the 70s including tunes. The sing-songy nature of that music gets me moving melodically as I make dinner. If I want to chill, I listen to classic crooners from the 1950s.
However, just as important as the music selection is to setting my mood, so is the sound quality. Quite honestly, the sound quality from most smartphones is pretty horrible — whether it be for music, video or just plain talking on the phone. It always sound tinny and the music is muddy, never quite picking up bass or drum beats.
That was until I got to personally experience the HTC One® Harman Kardon® edition – a Sprint exclusive smartphone with a premium sound experience. I first checked it out at a Sprint Sound Sessions event that was recently held in NYC.
