2014 Sprint Disclosure HTC One Harman Kardon Edition front back and side The HTC One Harman Kardon Edition looks amazing, doesn’t it?  I love the brushed metal design, the curves, the champagne gold accents… the feel of the phone.  But what makes the HTC One Harman Kardon Edition different isn’t what you see or feel.  What makes the HTC One Harman Kardon Edition phone different, is what you hear.

Music is woven all through my life.  It can change my mood in a second.  Many of my best memories are tied to specific songs.  Just play, “You are so beautiful” and I’m taken to when my daughter was a baby and I would play that as a lullaby.  Or play, “Lake Shore Drive” and I’m driving down Lake Shore Drive in Chicago, with the top down on my convertible, singing at the top of my lungs and loving the sunshine. HTC One Harman Kardon Edition with Dollar As a music lover, the ability to have all my favorite tunes at my fingertips on my phone is incredible.   But, let’s face it, we’ve had to give up sound quality for convenience when it comes to listening to music on our phones.  Now, there’s exciting news for audiophiles.  The HTC One Harman Kardon Edition changes all that.  No more sacrificing sound quality for convenience!   Did you know Sprint pioneered the first mobile phone with a built-in MP3 player?  They continue to be on the cutting edge of music technology with the new HTC One Harman Kardon Edition.  Just the name Harman Kardon tells you this is quality.

“When you listen to music on a Harman Kardon system

you are listening to art, framed by decades of dedicated scientific research.”

The HTC One Harman Kardon Edition has this “hardware”:

  • proprietary front-facing speakers, (in a cool champagne color!)
  • dedicated custom amps for the speakers and headphones,
  • and the device comes bundled with a custom set of Harman Kardon AE-S headphones with extended bass response

Then, to enhance your listening further, the HTC One Harman Kardon Edition has this “software”:

  • A revolutionary application — HARMAN’s Clari-Fi — that restores and “rebuilds” music fidelity lost during audio compression. The first time in a mobile device, Clari-Fi yields richer, deeper and clearer sound quality for compressed digital music (like MP3 downloads or streaming services like Spotify®).
  • Lossless HD Audio music reproduction via a 24bit/192kHz DAC that delivers roughly six times the information of compact disc music and 60 times the information of an MP3 or streaming music source when playing high-res digital (FLAC) downloads from sources like HDtracks.com.

Having all my favorite music at my fingertips on my phone is convenient, and with the HTC One Harman Kardon Edition, it is also a quality sound.  But, having ALL my favorite music is……. expensive.  There are so many songs that I want to listen to, I just don’t want to buy.  Sprint has a new deal with Spotify, and you may qualify for three to six months of free service.  Yup, free!  Oh wait, do you know about Spotify?  Spotify has more than, wait, are you ready?  Spotify has more than 20 million songs.  Wow.  You can play music on demand, create playlists, share tracks with friends, and listen to music without ads!

Sprint’s chief marketing officer, said “with edgier programming and events, the ability to share perspectives with like-minded music lovers and simple and seamless ways to connect with others who share the same passion for music. Sprint Sounds Sessions will mark a definitive brand evolution for Sprint. If music is an important part of your life, then Sprint will become the wireless provider for you.”

HTC One Harman Kardon Edition Reflecting Tree The HTC One also has great phone features, blah, blah, blah (it’s a good phone).  With up to 160 GB of total data storage and a microSD card slot that supports up to 128 GB of storage cards, on top of the built-in 32 GB, you won’t be seeing the error message, “There is not enough available storage”, on this phone!  You may have noticed someone else using an HTC One, because the screen is Wow.  The device  features a full 5-inch HD (1080p) screen.  It also has Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 801 and 2.3GHz quad-core CPU.  But what about the camera, you say? The Duo Camera™ using the innovative HTC UltraPixel module and depth sensor, a dual flash, 1080p HD video recording.  I took the picture below with the HTC One.

You also have access to “world phone” global connectivity, and Sprint Spark for blazing speeds and crystal-clear HD Voice performance. Oh!  How could I forget the earbuds?  The HTC One Harman Kardon is bundled with Harman Kardon AE-S headphones with extended bass response.  They have a retail value of $180, although they are often on sale. As a bonus, Sprint offers the Harman Kardon Onyx Studio, sold exclusively by Sprint, for just $99.99 when purchased with the HTC One (M8) Harman Kardon edition.

One of my favorite things about the Harman Kardon Onyx Studio is the portability.  It has a rechargeable battery, easy-carrying handle and looks awesome.  We will be rockin’ by the pool with this one!  I can easily and quickly switch from the speakers on the phone, to the earbuds, to the Onyx Studio.  Flexibility and great sound are a hot combination.
