The speaker, aptly named the Harman Kardon One, is the second time that the company has designed a product with HTC. The One speaker comes with 40 mm drivers, NFC pairing, and a 5 hour battery life. The metal design comes to us courtesy of HTC and is an extension of the same premium build quality we’re used to in their One-series phones. The speaker is also seamlessly compatible with the three-finger swipe gesture that HTC has in their devices which will automatically connect the two. Another three-finger swipe downwards ends the connection. It also comes with a built-in microphone and echo-canceling speakerphone for clearer conference calls.
Although the 5 hour battery life might be a deal breaker for some, the build quality of the speaker definitely makes it a cool mobile accessory especially since it will be available in a limited release bundle with the HTC One M9. The Harman Kardon One will be available at the end of March and the suggested retail price is £129, or $200.
