If you’re an audiophile, trust me.. the HTC 10 is the smartphone for you.
As we age, what we hear varies. For example, there is a tv set that makes a high pitched sound. I cannot hear this sound, but people in their 20’s and younger can. Crazy, right? Sad, but true, as we age, our hearing degrades. There are tones and frequencies we probably should hear, but cannot anymore.
Fortunately, the HTC 10 seems to be able to combat this with their HTC Boomsound with Dolby Audio, which enhances the sound for your headphones, but even better… comes with personal audio profiles.
First, go to Settings > Phone > HTC BoomSound with Dolby Audio > Dolby Headphone effects > and select the headphones you’re using.
Next go to Settings > Phone > HTC BoomSound with Dolby Audio > Personal Audio Profile > + > Create an audio profile > Listen to frequencies (accurate)
This is where the magic happens. Note: you do need headphones on for this to work. Going through this process allows you to fine-tune an audio profile for your hearing abilities. You’ll listen for high, low, and mid-range frequencies in both ears, just like a hearing test. Then, it creates a personal audio profile for you. You can create multiple profiles as well, and then listen to which sounds better when listening to your music.
The HTC 10 has certified Hi-res audio processing, 24-bit DAC (digital to analog converter) and a high performance headset amplifier. All of what HTC has built into the HTC 10 makes for a stellar listening experience. I can definitely notice a difference when listening to my music through headphones on the HTC 10 compared to my other devices, and the difference is definitely very positive.
If you’re not using headphones, the HTC 10 does have the HTC BoomSound™ Hi-Fi edition speakers that feature a separate tweeter and woofer design, and a dedicated amplifier for each speaker. It of course doesn’t sound as amazing as using headphones, but does a nice job for when you want to listen to some audio through your HTC 10 speakers. It has a theater mode and music mode from which to choose. I find the theater mode to sound better than the music mode, even when listening to music, but comes down to personal preference I suppose.
