Recently, I attended a Sprint Sound Session on behalf of Mom
Central Consulting.  The event took place
at the swanky Lambs Club in Midtown of New York City.

During the Sprint Sound Session, over wine and light snacks,
I along with my fellow mom bloggers had the opportunity to demo the new Sprint
HTC One (M8) Harman Kardon Edition
, and the Harman
Kardon Onyx Studio speakers, both of which are exclusive to Sprint. Combined,
both offer you the best in sound allowing you the best Sprint Music experience

During the Spring Sound Session we also had a special treat –
a live performance by The Voice Season 2 winner, Jermaine Paul.  He not only sang, but, he also played his
guitar.  Out of the three songs he
performed – you can see snippets on my instagram– my favorite was “Get next to
The  HTC One (M8) Harman Karmon Edition, sorry iPhone, is probably one of the
best phones I’ve used to date.  I love
the look and feel of the HTC One (M8) HK; it’s sleek, sexy, sophisticated, and
has the high-end look I like my devices to have. 
Another aspect of the HTC One (M8) Harman Karmon Edition I love is the camera;
the pictures are noticeably better than the ones taken on my iPhone.  Thanks to the Duo Camera and innovative HTC
UltraPixel module and depth sensor, and dual flash, the pictures are clearer,
more crisp, and true to color.  Plus,
there are some pretty neat camera features.  And as a blogger, and mom, taking pictures,
especially on-the-go is just what comes with the territory; therefore, having a
phone with a camera that actually works well, without toting along my larger
DSL-R is a plus.
I have a three year old who loves to use my phone, either to
listen to music, play games or take pictures. Thanks to the Kid Mode feature, I
am able to pick and choose which apps my daughter can access while the phone is
in her tiny toddler hands. FYI: My toddler
loves this phone.  She said “I like this.
It’s bigger. Some phones are smaller. This is big.” Plus, she loves the
counting game I downloaded just for her.
As a person who loves music, the HTC One (M8) Harman Karmon Edition is the perfect choice for me for the following reasons:
Sound Sessions front-facing speakers,
dedicated custom amps for the speakers
Harman Kardon AE-S headphones with extended bass

Since we’ve been painting over at our house, I’ve used
Spotify’s ‘Pop’ station to keep me going. Did anyone say, “Paint Party”?

During the Sprint Sound Session demo of the Harmon Kardon

using the speaker.  I must say, I need
one. The sound is crisp, and fills the room.  .:Party over here:. Plus, it can connect wirelessly to any Bluetooth device.  Yes, you should get one.
