Default Just to be Clear about Beats Audio

Beats only works in the HTC music player and HTC video player. Ive read reviews, even watched review videos from real reviewers that discuss the audio coming from the speaker as sounding great because of Beats.

read here for explanation:

I just want this to be clear for people who may be trying out the phone and expecting to hear amazing sound and being disappointed in Beats and the Phone.

Hope this helps

Once/if the phone is rooted would there be a way to manually turn it on regardless? There was a dev that included beats into an incredible S ROM and it seemed to work whenever you wanted it too, even regardless of headphone brand; i think.

Glad they work with any headphones. I love the white ones that came with my iPod. Just kidding. I have a couple pairs of Bose that I really like so I think I'll sell the beats ones.

I like my SkullCandy headphones better than the Beats! Glad it will work, however, I use Google Music. Not trying to bog my phone down with unneeded used space! Thanks for the clarification though!

Yeah those headphones are going on eBay. I would be happy with $50 for them since I consider them a bonus since the Razr is also $299

i always used cheap jbuds from amazon for 10 bucsk..loved them, and the funny thing is i'm a total audiophile/musician, but when it comes to earbuds, i don't spend money on them because i'd rather use actual headphones

so getthing these beats for free with it was a nice little changeup, i actually REALLY like how they sound with beats audio turned on.

I just looked on eBay an I founds these ear buds going for over 100$ in some auctions. That's crazy. No wonder full retail is so much for this phone
