After we looked at the LG G2’s display, camera and battery, it’s time to check out the sound of the new smartphone.
On stage, the company revealed that it has significantly improved the sound experience of its flagship products, with the LG G2 ready to offer 24 bit/192kHz Hi-Fi playback “that reproduces studio-like quality sound” which is “far superior to a CD” (which offers 16bit/44.1kHz sound).
While LG is not branding its sound experience in any way, it certainly suggest that the G2 is superior to its competitors.
Furthermore, the LG G2 will also offer a feature called Audio Zoom that wasn’t demoed on stage and which will let users focus on the voice on certain subjects when recording home videos – the Audio Zoom feature is shown in the following TV ad:
Finally, the LG G2 will feature ringtones from the Vienna Boys’ Choir, as previously rumored.
Naturally, we’ll further explore the sound quality of the LG G2 in our own review. Meanwhile, don’t forget to check out our hands-on with the handset.

But does it have Beats by Dr. Dre™? Who cares about bits an kHz; I want more logos on my phone.
You’re joking, right? Just making sure :)
Totally joking! But it does sound like something my iPhone using friends would say.
huh , srry what you said ? , how its related to iphone i think you meant to say htc (beats)
But not 192khz playback. just 48khz playback. Same with the S2,S3 and the S4 has 24/48khz. The LG is superior
ohh , k
PLEASE say you are joking..I beg you……
Rest easy, I’m joking. :)
Actually, you should NOT care about bits of kHz on your phone. You should care about the quality of its speakers.
The two aren’t mutually exclusive.
Glad to see somebody focusing on audio other than Beats/Htc.
And Google with NN7
What did they put in the new Nexus 7?
The super extra mega sound thingy
Pity the background picture LG used is so misleading. That blue line is not representative of what you hear when playing back a CD.
Pretty much everything LG said about the audio quality is misleading (basically outright lie):
I’ve seen that article elsewhere previously. From memory I only agreed with about half of it. The sampling rate theoretically should make no difference. The increase in bit depth does have theoretical benefits.
Of course theory matters squat diddley. I personally can hear a difference and prefer 24 bit / 48kHz and 24bit / 96 kHz files over CD quality. I haven’t had the opportunity to compare 24 bit files with different sampling rates to see whether I can hear any difference.
Holy jesus mother of god.
If the insulation and the quality of the audio DAC in that thing is as good as it is advertised, I’m gonna buy it right away.
That “Audio Zoom”, if works, it’s a killer.
And what will you play the 192kHz/24bit sound on? I guess not the internal speakers, so how do you connect it to your superior audio system?
I have flac files that are encoded at greater than CD quality that I would listen to on headphones. No need to connect it to my audiophile setup although I would like that option too.
LG G2 uses Dolby digital Mobile Sound Enhancement for its G2 to produce cinema like sound . This source its true and official . Btw u can find this Enhancement on few other device like , Nokia 900 , 808 , 825 / All Huawei phone & ZTE phone .
If u compare this to Beats by Dr Dre , Dolby digital will win over the Beats – Why ? Because Beats its professional in headset and Earpiece while Dolby is professional in cinema sound and home theatre , so Dolby is a superior sound system compare to Beats .
The most important thing is where you connect the phone… You can have studio like reproduction (which I don’t really believe in), but if you use shitty headphones you may best throw that phone out the window. It is essential to have atleast a good pair of AKG’s, Senheiser or byerdamic’s (no you don’t need beats and you shouldn’t waste money on them (: ) or connect to any monitors to feel the difference.
There’s no difference. They lied to you.
the youtube video is not playable.. it gives an error ” This video is provate ” how do i view the video???
