Sprint and HTC unveiled a very special version of the hot-new HTC One M8. The new One Harman/Kardon edition offers premium audio quality with lossless HD audio via a 24 bit/192kHz DAC. To put it in layman’s terms – that’s roughly six times the information of CD music and 60 times the information of an MP3. Inside the box, you’ll also get a pair of Harman/Kardon AE-S headphones, and the ability to grab a Harman/Kardon Onyx Studio speaker for just $99.99, down from its regular price of $399.99. Plus you’ll get Harman Clari-Fi application that can rebuilds a track’s audio quality which was lost during its compression.

Other than the mentioned audio enhancements, this remains the same HTC One M8 under the hood, boasting Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 801 SoC clocked at 2.3GHz, 5-inch full HD screen, dual cameras on the back, while Android 4.4.2 KitKat is running the show with HTC’s own Sense 6.0 singing on top.
