Today Sprint and HTC announced the HTC One® (M8) Harman Kardon® edition. The new One (M8) HK is a groundbreaking smartphone that continues Sprint's commitment to bringing great music and listening options to our customers.
The HTC One (M8) Harman Kardon edition features industry-leading sound with HTC’s proprietary front-facing speakers, 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 -- a $149 retail value. It also boasts up to 160GB of total data storage with a microSD card slot that supports up to 128GB of storage cards on top of the built-in 32GB.
Here are my unboxing pics so you know what comes in the box and what to expect.
Open the top lid and behold the beautiful and exclusive champagne color enhanced One (M8) begging to be held. Notice the bold message about the HTC Advantage program.
If you can bare to set the One (M8) down for one moment, you can remove the upper divider to reveal the SIM removal tool, quick info manual and recycle bag on the left side, and more goodies on the right half. HTC includes the normal wall charger and charge/sync cable and VERY nice ear buds.
The HTC One® (M8) Harman Kardon® edition comes with premium, Austrian designed Harman Kardon ear buds, valued at $149 USD, to enhance the listening experience. The ear buds come with in-line mic for phone calls and volume/FF/RW controls.
(Don't ask my why my photo editor turned my pic blue, but I assure you they are NOT blue.)
Once you fire up your HTC One® (M8) Harman Kardon® edition you will get a customized Sprint Spotify live wallpaper that visually demonstrates our dedication to great music. You also get some customized tools for managing, listening and purchasing new music, but more on that in another post.
