HTC One (M8) Harman/Kardon Edition smart phone with Sprint

HTC One M8
I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting (#MC) for Sprint. I received a product sample to facilitate my review and to thank me for participating.

Please remind your readers that you are a Sprint Ambassador and that you will be sharing your experiences testing various Sprint devices and service options over the course of the year.

One of the modern conveniences we miss most in our van is Bluetooth connectivity.  It has a cd and DVD player, but all of our music resides on our phones, or online, in the Cloud, so we can't fully enjoy our music library on the road!  We have tried using wireless Bluetooth speakers in the car, but the sound produced can be somewhat crackly and tinny, especially in a car.   We love listening to music on road trips, so when the opportunity to try out the new HTC One (M8) Harman/Kardon Edition, we welcomed it with open arms.

About the HTC One (M8) Harman/Kardon Edition
With revolutionary technology that restores all types of compressed digital music and provides a more life-like headphone listening experience, the beautifully crafted all-metal HTC One (M8) Harman/Kardon Edition with superior design inside and out provides you with a music experience unlike any other.

To be perfectly honest, when I first heard that Sprint had this phone available, I didn't think much about it -- but that's because I'm completely ignorant about audio technology.  Alfie recognized the Harman/Kardon name immediately and declared I must be living under a rock to not know that Harman/Kardon is one of the premier brands in home audio and car audio.

After trying out the HTC One (M8) Harman/Kardon Sprint smartphone, I can see why the Harman/Kardon name is so respected -- the sound is wonderful!  I enjoy listening to music while running, blogging, folding laundry, driving in the car, so I've been using it quite a lot. The phone features patented Clari-Fi™ technology, which analyzes digital audio files in real time and restores what was lost in compression. The phone also comes with special Harman/Kardon earbuds with LiveStage™ feature that will leave you swearing you're listening to music at a live concert.

Great audio isn't the only great feature of the the HTC One (M8) Harman/Kardon Edition.  This phone is slightly larger than my HTC One (first generation), but just as slim. The phone has an elegant metal detailing which was not available with my HTC One or with other models.  It has a 5-inch Full HD screen and a great camera that captures bright, clear photos.

What's more, if you are with Sprint, your HRC One (M8) Harman/Kardon Edition phone comes with access to Spotify's catalogue of more than 20 million songs!

As part of our review, Sprint also sent us the Harman/Kardon Onyx Studio wireless speakers. It works brilliantly with the HTC One (M8) Harman/Kardon edition phone! It's amazing that such wonderful sounds can come from such a small speaker -- we have numerous Bluetooth wireless speakers, and none of them can match the sound quality to the Onyx Studio.  No hissing, no crackles, just sweet, sweet music.  No doubt the fact that Harman/Kardon is responsible for the audio parts on both the phone and the speaker has a lot to do with it!  You can only connect 1 speaker to your device via Bluetooth, but the sound quality is so good, and our living room is quite small, so it doesn't feel like we're giving anything up.  We've been saving up to buy a Bluetooth wireless sound system that can hook up multiple speakers, but after enjoying the music streaming from our new HK Onyx Studio, I'm not sure we need it.  The Onyx Studio is portable, so I can't wait for our next road trip so we can take both the phone and the speaker in our van!
