    The beats symbol only comes into the notification bar when you have earphones plugged in...

    If you have earphones plugged in and there isn't a notification then check your settings to make sure you've not disabled it.

    This is incorrect.. On the HTC ONE if the Beats Audio is on and you listen to music without headphones, the beats logo in red should still appear and be working, with or without headphones. If it's not showing up when listening to music or videos from the front speakers, then you have a problem. I would recheck again. I'd not factory reset it and see if that fixed it.. The One X only worked with headphones..

    That may be true but the actual beats audio sound profile won't kick in without earphones as using beats on the external speaker could cause it damage...

    Then why does the sound differ when you are listening to say a music file with the external speakers with beats audio turned on and off. With beats off, the volume output is much louder but not as crisp and clean with it on..
    But all I am saying is the icon should still show up whether headphones are in or not as long as beats is turned on in settings.

    Well that's why you're wrong then pal.. Lol. The HTC One works both with and without headphones.. I also had a One X and it's only with headphones like your One sv. Every phone is different.

    It's has to do with the clarity and the tone rather then the loudness.. But with headphones in its much better. Does your beats icon on come without headphones also? It should... There's a video on YouTube explaining the beats audio and how it works..

    It only stays in the top bar whilst playing music as soon as you stop the music the icon goes away - have a look at this video, and yeah fair enough I've only got the one sv but my brother has the HTC one and I asked him when the other person started to question me about it and he confirmed what I was saying was true.....

    So ignore the other guy he doesn't know what he's talking about, the only thing I got wrong is that on my phone the icon only appears when earphones are plugged in and playing music but like I said HTC phones are different

    The beats audio profile adds more of a bass profile with it turned off it may be louder but that's because the bass has been reduced and have a look in the video I've posted on this thread it clearly shows that the icon only comes up when he's playing music.
    p.s I didn't come on here to argue who is right or wrong I was simply trying to help the original poster...
