HTC's BoomSound

Does it really make a difference? We think so. Our Kristopher Wouk called them the “best speakers I’ve ever heard on a phone”. That’s high praise.

HTC has always been big on audio, going so far as to purchase a controlling interest in Beats a few years back. With that purchase, they hoped that mobile audio performance was a big deal to us, and were hedging bets on the future. Well, it really wasn’t as important as HTChoped. Sure, we like a good sound coming from our device, but it just wasn’t paramount, as HTCfound with their failed Rezound device.

Though they have had a few setbacks, HTCcontinues to lead the way in mobile audio. Be it YouTube or music, we love great mobile sound. With the HTCOne, the device manufacturer hopes to strike a chord with their dual front-facing speakers, called BoomSound.

It’s slightly brilliant, really. It can be quite annoying to cup your hand, or depend on a solid surface, to reverberate sound from the back of a device. If the speakers are facing forward, like the screen is, the audio volume is much better. With two speakers, and built-in amplifiers, the quality should be great as well.
