Huawei Histen 3D audio technology brings the experience of live music to the Honor 9. With innovative ultra-wide 3D sound field technology, you’ll be able to enjoy virtual surround sound through your earphones in three different modes – near, front and wide – that replicate the effect of listening to music through traditional headphones, in a home theater and at a concert hall. Immerse yourself in music, whenever, wherever.
Honor talked a lot about the audio on the Honor 9 being "An audiophile's dream". Many different phones have this same type of feature where you can change the sound of your music to replicate different environments. The Honor 9 calls this their 3D Audio technology. When compared to other phones with this feature, the Honor 9 is noticeably better.
The purity equalizer can be adjusted just like any other equalizer. Your music will sound good without ever being blown out. I've noticed in other phones turning the bass up will cause lots of distortion. This problem doesn't exist on the Honor 9
To use the Huawei Histen sounds effects, you must be using a pair of heads that are plugged in to your phone. This will not work when connected to bluetooth. I spent some time listening to all kinds of music through Play Music and I really like the way it sounds. It's probably the best sounding audio experience on a smartphone.
The headphones I'm using are the Sony MDR-100ABN. What headphones are you using and what's you experience like?
