Despite the cringe-inducing name, BoomSound, the trademarked audio technology that HTC is using on the One, manages to exceed expectation. This according to ZDNET’s Matthew Miller, who came to the conclusion that the phone’s dual front speakers (with built-in amplifiers), Beats Audio, and BoomSound offer a high quality audio-listening experience, one that even rivals an external speaker.
The video, taken using a Nokia Lumia 920, shows the One playing several classic tunes. You’ll get to hear how the audio is like with and without the Beats enhancement; the former apparently gives a much richer sound, instead of merely boosting the bass level.
Even with the volume cranked all the way up, the audio quality doesn’t seem to suffer from any distortion, according to Miller.
