What is Beats Audio?
Beats Audio is sound enhancement software that is included as part of the HTC One device experience, designed to provide studio quality sound. It is designed to enhance the lower sounds, such as bass and guitar, which often gets decreased when music is presented in a digital format. Some music styles, such as classical, might actually sound better without these enhancements. In these cases, Beats Audio can be turned off by dragging down the notification bar and tapping the slider to turn Beats Audio off.
Beats Audio will work whenever a headset or external speaker is connected to the device (wired or Bluetooth). Beats Audio will not be enabled when using the standard device speaker.
Note: Beats by Dr. Dre branded accessories are not required to use the Beats Audio software, however they do come recommended as they contain a hardware component that further enhances the audio experience.
