“I participated in an Influencer Activation Program on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Sprint Sound Session. I received a sample of the HTC One to facilitate this review and a promotional item to thank me for participating.”
Mommy Ramblings was so pleased to be invited to a Sprint Sound Session Event in NYC a few weeks ago. The Event was held in Manhattan at the elegant Lambs Club which is right in Times Square.
Once inside we were greeted greeted by representatives of Mom Central who directed us to the event room and outdoor patio where we were introduced to reps from Sprint and HTC while enjoying delicious appetizers and drinks.
The conversation was bright, welcoming, and informative focusing on the HTC One M8 Harman Kardon Edition phone. The HTC representative demonstrated the fabulous features of the limited edition phone. He explained that the phone has dual frontal stereo speakers with built-in amplifiers and exclusive Harman Kardon AE-S headphones with extended bass response. The phone features Clari-Fi which is a revolutionary Harman technology that restores all types of compressed digital music and “rebuilds” what was lost in compression. Clari-Fi gives new life to compressed media files. Music simply sounds better!
The HTC One M8 gives you the ability to take truly stunning portrait photography and pictures with unique, fun and creative special effects. In a smartphone first, HTC’s Duo Camera features a dual lens that captures depth of field information and provides an entirely new set of editing tools. After taking a photo, the UFocus capability uses the depth information collected by the dual lens camera to give you professional-looking portraits. Great for bloggers who are always taking pictures!
We then had a wonderful lunch followed by the Sprint and HTC representatives introducing their partnerships and exciting products available through Sprint, including Spotify, and the Harman Kardon sound package. The event ended with a performance by Jermaine Paul, season 2 winner of The Voice. Jermaine performed 3 songs which were awesome and ended with a photo and signing session. It was a very well put together event.

We take our music very seriously so we are really impressed with this phone. The phone also included a set of Harman/Kardon ear buds at a value of $149 complete with volume, play/pause buttons, we just love these! The styling of the phone is super sharp with its black finish accented with champagne gold. Just by looking at the phone you know it’s special! We love all the features but the sound quality is one of the best! Truly a dream come true for music lovers!
