    Id just like a reference point, as I really like my N7's speakers (even though they're on the back ☺). If anybody has both, how do they compare?

    No contest, BoomSound blows them away. I used YouTube to play the same song on both and it was pretty incredible how much louder and more rich the sound was. You will also get better sound through HTC's music app, or Google play music then through YouTube

    I have both a Nexus 7 and an M8. The M8's speakers are better. The clarity of the sound it produces is amazing, especially since its from a phone.

    Boomsound is really in it's own class. I can't believe they got that much bandwidth out of such a tiny speaker, at THAT volume. The real impressive thing is that no one else is even coming close, including Apple. HTC basically out-appled, Apple.
    Seeing as how I always have a phone playing in my pocket as I do projects around the house and yard, it's a freaking godsend. No more tinny music.

    LOL at all this concern about a phone's speaker. Volume is one thing and an important one, but give me a break about its "quality". You can't get detailed sound from tiny speakers. Flame me all you want but it's the truth.

    I've heard three M8's now including my own. They sound nice and clear and have nice volume but they don't seem to be as loud as people make them out to be. That being said, they're still very nice for a phone.

    No intent to flame but you really should give them a listen...I'm constantly impressed with not just the loudness but the stereo separation and sound quality. You obviously don't get ground-shaking bass but it's surprisingly good.

    Have you listened to the speakers? If not, you are in no position to make those statements. Anyways, when people refer to the quality, my impression is that they are referring to the quality in comparison to other smartphones

    I have. I've been using the One for 6 days straight. The speakers are good for being loud and listening when I don't want headphones. It's nice to be able to hear a podcast while doing dishes. It is loud enough to play music for others to hear. Yes, they are perhaps the best sounding speakers on a mobile device I've heard. But, really? They are good but not "OMFG THEYRE SO AMAZING" good.

    I don't know about you guys but I like listening to music. I love it, in fact. And there are no mobile speakers that are good enough. So lol. This is an even sillier discussion than the talk about smartphone cameras replacing DSLRs.

    That's like mocking someone for getting excited about ice cream. If all you've eaten is rice, ice cream is pretty exciting!
    The comment about the detail is wrong though. Detail is not the challenge, it's getting wider high and low frequency extension AND volume at the same time, in an extremely small space. Easy enough for ear buds, but doing it in an equally small space and getting it to project in a room is a real problem. FWIW, they did improve the detail too. But that's not the real impressive thing here, it's the bandwidth. No one else has done that so far. Phones have just been a nasty, narrow midrange band.

    Well, no one said that or even brought up that subject of these being a replacement for full sized speakers. We're simply talking about the advancement made. A real accomplishment for the underdog.

    Hahaha. Sorry for ruining your ice cream. Sorry for being wrong and having an opinion on how I portray them to sound. No one need post any further the questions have been answered above...
