Video shows consumers comparing their headset to the HTC USonic earbuds


Inside the box with the HTC U11 handset comes the manufacturer's USonic earbuds. These have a number of features that you won't find on many headsets. First, the USonic scans your ears to find the best output level for you. The first time you plug in the earbuds, you are prompted to set up an audio profile. You can turn the personal audio profile on or off by going to Settings and tapping on the HTC USonic on/off switch.

Based on your personal audio profile, the USonic earbuds will adjust to the sound level around you. While you are using the them to listen to a video or some music, you can have loud and annoying ambient noises disappear like magic.

HTC released a video yesterday that shows consumers trying out the USonic earbuds and comparing them to the headset they currently employ. While no words are spoken during the video, HTC says that the smiles on the faces of those with the USonic in their ears "speak volumes" about the accessory. The manufacturer says that this is especially true when you compare the smiles with the dour expressions on the same faces when they are using their own equipment.

What is interesting about this promo is the negative reaction to it by viewers who viewed it on YouTube. Again, we have often referred to marketing as one of the biggest issues HTC has. Does this video make you want to try the USonic earbuds on the HTC U11? Take a look at it by clicking on the video at the top of the story and then drop us a comment in the box below.
