Smartphones With Impressive Sound Quality
While buying a phone (yeah the Smart Phone!) we tend to search and research about every bit of detail like camera, processor, RAM, memory, battery, SIM slots, and etc., but how many of us think about the sound quality? Well for all the audiophiles out there, we present you the top 9 phones with the best sound quality. The results are based on Phone Speaker Test and Phone Internal Audio Test conducted in an isolated room using a number of headphones and earphones at various price ranges to distinguish the differences.
On the speaker side, OnePlus 2 might satisfy you with the high-end frequencies but it has one of the faintest speakers out of all the phones tested. Unfortunately it is less impressive at the first plug-in too. While its overall audio power output is extremely impressive, its overall sound quality leaves us in the lurch.
You might get impressed by G3’s overall loudness and high-end frequency extension but its design limits the speaker performance. With a 3.5mm jack plugged in, you will notice some huge internal audio problems, with distortions, interference and random clicking sounds with an extremely hampered audio.
Sony Xperia Z5
Xperia’s speakers produce a nice stereo sound with a good emphasis on the mids and highs. The downside is in the low-end department, with almost non-existent bass. The internal audio is neither good nor bad. Somewhere in the middle the phone disappoints with soundstage and impresses with its mids and highs.
HTC One M9
It’s the ‘One’ that will not disappoint you with its speakers’ sound quality. Still, lack of loudness might hinder the phone really being used as a Boombox. The phone also has a decent internal audio sound reproduction with a slight downside of its average low-end performance and its soundstage. The phone also incurs a little bit of distortion while playing music with more of a high frequency focus.
Google Nexus 6P
Nexus offers a loud, and slightly uncontrolled speaker sound quality. While the dual front-facing speakers add to the overall experience of watching and listening to content, you might get disappointed with the distortion at maximum volume. In terms of internal audio quality, it is one of the best sounding phones out there, with an amazing mid and high-range frequency response. Sadly, the downside is the slight interference when used alongside an amp.
Although it had tough competition with other flagship phones, Marshall London is the most impressive phone out there. The fantastic low-end response is phenomenal to hear in such a small set of speakers. The phone also creates a magnificent internal audio reproduction. The sound is full-bodied and fun sounding. It performs well at a very high standard.
