HTC One uses dual membrane microphones, promises superior audio recording
That all high-end smartphones can capture great high-definition video is something we're pretty sure about. When it comes to capture audio, however, not all handsets are capable of delivering stellar results. 

To make sure the new HTC One does not disappoint in that aspect, its maker has equipped it with a pair of high-quality microphones capable of capturing both high and low sound pressure levels equally well. How does that happen? Well, through the use of dual-membrane mikes, the kind of which you aren't likely to see on other smartphones. One of the membranes is highly sensitive in order to record even the faintest of sounds. That could be quite useful, for example, when you're recording someone's speech. The other microphone membrane is made for high volume levels, which means that it will capture even the sound of a rock concert. The two signals are mixed together and the result is a clean, dynamic sound free of distortion or crackling noises.

But that's just one of the many cool things about the HTC One. To learn more about what makes the smartphone stand out of the crowd, make sure you read our HTC One hands-on.

What are you talking about this will be one of the best camera phones out, just because its MP is not as high does not make it a bad camera your not going to be putting your pictures on street billboards are you? the important things in a camera are lens and sensor not megapixels... Geeze ppl are clueless

Pretty sure the HTC Evo LTE had the same mic but it was never marketed. The HTC Evo LTE picks up every sound very clear even loud music. On play back you can hear every note very clear without distortion. Yes I tested it by putting it next to a speaker at loud volume. Sounds great!

I think HTC is really showing what they can do with this phone. I still have about six months before I"m up for an upgrade...I think I will have to keep HTC in mind when I start looking.
