CAMBRIDGE, ENGLAND & SUNNYVALE, USA: CSR plc announced that HTC Corp. has licensed the CSR aptX audio codec to deliver CD-quality wireless Bluetooth audio in the first three models of the new HTC One series of high-performance smart phones, the HTC One X, One V and One S. All three devices in the HTC One series feature aptX technology designed to ensure CD-quality Bluetooth stereo audio, resulting in a more authentic sound experience when users listen to their favourite music.
With the inclusion of aptX in the HTC One series, users can enjoy this amazing sound experience wirelessly over Bluetooth and with no loss of audio quality.
“HTC’s decision to include aptX technology in the HTC One series demonstrates a very real commitment to audio quality. These devices will pack a real punch in terms of audio quality and will provide one of the best mobile audio experiences on the market,” said Anthony Murray, SVP Home Business Group of CSR.
“The ecosystem of aptX devices is continuing to grow rapidly as both manufactures and consumers realise that aptX can deliver a truly wireless experience without compromising on audio quality. The phenomenal popularity of headphones goes to show that consumers are becoming ever-more demanding when it comes to audio quality, and we believe that aptX is the only technology that can really deliver hi-fi audio over Bluetooth.”
