  • Brian Bennett 4/29/2014 2:51:33 PM
    HD audio with the HTC One M8's powerful stereo speakers would interesting.
  • Roger Cheng 4/29/2014 2:51:35 PM
    Today, wireless networks can carry a lot more traffic. Video has taken advantage, and now it's time for music to do the same, he says.
  • Roger Cheng 4/29/2014 2:51:47 PM
    Sprint's exclusive HTC One Harman/Kardon edition.
  • JML 4/29/2014 2:51:56 PM

  • Roger Cheng 4/29/2014 2:52:10 PM
    This phone features music reproduction that's six times the amount of data found on a CD.

  • Roger Cheng 4/29/2014 2:52:20 PM
    Most digital music is found in Mp3 files, which are compressed.
  • Roger Cheng 4/29/2014 2:52:34 PM
    Harman develops music with superior sound, he says.
  • Roger Cheng 4/29/2014 2:52:48 PM
    Harman CEO Dinesh Paliwal is on stage now to talk about the tech.
  • Roger Cheng 4/29/2014 2:53:05 PM
    The engineer in me said what took us so long to bring us here, Paliwal.
  • sarahtew 4/29/2014 2:53:11 PM
  • Roger Cheng 4/29/2014 2:53:15 PM
    Congrats Dan, and thanks for bringing this experience to all of us, he says.
  • Brian Bennett 4/29/2014 2:53:20 PM
    Okay this is getting interesting...but how different will this phone be from the standard HTC One M8?
  • Roger Cheng 4/29/2014 2:53:31 PM
    Harmon has been around for 60+ years helping artists with recording and audio tech, he says.
  • Roger Cheng 4/29/2014 2:53:42 PM
    The last 5-7 years, we've witnessed a mega change in how we buy and listen to music.
  • Roger Cheng 4/29/2014 2:54:07 PM
    But we've also sacrificed something in compression. We're missing the highs and lows of music, he says.
  • Roger Cheng 4/29/2014 2:54:12 PM
    It's not what the artists intend.
  • Roger Cheng 4/29/2014 2:54:27 PM
    Your generation is being deprived of what artists totally intended for you to listen to, he says.
  • Brian Bennett 4/29/2014 2:54:29 PM
    I bet the hardware is the same but the software and carrier network infrastructure will be the difference.
  • Roger Cheng 4/29/2014 2:54:40 PM
    3-5 years of work went into fixing the problem, he says.
  • sarahtew 4/29/2014 2:54:57 PM
  • Roger Cheng 4/29/2014 2:55:18 PM
    The HTC One M8 will have a tech called Clarifi, which will put back the missing notes, he says.
  • Roger Cheng 4/29/2014 2:55:28 PM
    It's not just boosting base or equalization, which makes it worse, he says.
  • Roger Cheng 4/29/2014 2:55:43 PM
    Clari-Fi I believe is a Harmon tech.
  • sarahtew 4/29/2014 2:55:56 PM
  • Roger Cheng 4/29/2014 2:56:13 PM
    Harmon Kardon earbugs, valued at $140, will be packaged with the HTC One M8 HK edition.
  • Roger Cheng 4/29/2014 2:56:20 PM
    He points to the BMW to his left.
  • Brian Bennett 4/29/2014 2:56:27 PM
    So Sprint will partner with Harman Kardon to process the sound on the back end...and perhaps on the phone too.

    I hate to be a killjoy, but it's always good to take claims of "enhanced audio" with a grain of salt: www.cnet.com
  • Roger Cheng 4/29/2014 2:56:35 PM
    BMW and the HTC One M8 both use Harmon Kardon sound.
  • Roger Cheng 4/29/2014 2:56:53 PM
    Music legend Quincy Jones is on video to talk about the power of sound.
  • Roger Cheng 4/29/2014 2:57:18 PM
    Again, it's all about taking the song and listening to it the way that the artist intends.
  • sarahtew 4/29/2014 2:57:41 PM
  • Roger Cheng 4/29/2014 2:57:56 PM
    Clari-Fi brings back the soul, Jones says.
  • Roger Cheng 4/29/2014 2:58:02 PM
    Video is over. Hesse is speaking again.
  • Roger Cheng 4/29/2014 2:58:15 PM
    Hesse now talking about HTC and its passion for design.
  • Brian Bennett 4/29/2014 2:58:19 PM
    The question is how much of this performance depends on the network or on the phone itself?
  • Roger Cheng 4/29/2014 2:58:20 PM
    HTC CEO Peter Chou is now coming on stage.
  • Roger Cheng 4/29/2014 2:58:28 PM
    He's a big fan of design, in case you didn't know.
  • sarahtew 4/29/2014 2:58:28 PM
  • Roger Cheng 4/29/2014 2:58:37 PM
    This is an exciting time for me, Chou says.
  • Brian Bennett 4/29/2014 2:58:46 PM
    Nice, now it's a party. Peter Chou is here!
  • Roger Cheng 4/29/2014 2:58:49 PM
    When partners like Sprint want to have something innovative, they come to HTC, he says.
  • Roger Cheng 4/29/2014 2:59:06 PM
    I grew up playing radio and other hi-fi music. That early interest in audio is what fires my passion for technology.
  • Roger Cheng 4/29/2014 2:59:17 PM
    That was Chou, not me.
