The only mistake I made was going for the SBH-54 which is good but a little to quiet. I have since read up & I should of gone for the SBH-52 which was a bit more expensive but it was better overall. I use this on both my iPhone 7+ & my LG G5.

Personally, any company, regardless of platform IOS or Android that retains the headphone jack will get my money seeing as I like to consider myself an audiophile. I am wedded to my wires, with wireless as an option only which I almost never use. Headphones of choice are the Momentum 2.0 and PXC 550 Wireless (I only use it wired).

Thats why I put that Apple didnt really do any thing with the space that was left behind from removing the jack, except put on a Heptic engine which is good & all, better than vibration but it was nothing ground breaking. Fingers crossed we see what they will do with the space on the iPhone 8 & we will see what HTC will do with it as well.

while apple stick with the same design and give nothing innovative in return except the performance which I appreciate of course
Hahaha, all you Fandroids crying because of a missing port & then say HTC are coping Apple? Give me a break!
First off, it was MOTOROLA that removed the jack first, not APPLE so HTC IS COPING MOTOROLA! Yes Motorola removed it for module reasons & Motorola is not as big as Apple so when Apple removed it there was more shockwaves sent around the world that everyone forgot that it was Motorola that actually removed before the iPhone 7 came out.
Second, we do not know a lot about this handset other than the removal of the port & the fact that is has an Samsungesk edge screen (strange how no one has slated HTC for coping Samsung on this one but that what is wrong with you Fandroids, looking at what has been "copied" from the enemy!). For all we know HTC could have a neat little trick up its sleeve that will make you want it more than any other Android handset on the market & the removal of the jack could be important to that feature, unlike Apple for removing theirs.
& third, if Apple had removed the port for something that was truly amazing & groundbreaking you Fandroids would not be complaining so much!
Nico, 31 Dec 2016Stop the BS of not including a 3.5mm jack HTC.... Ohh, and curved screens are dumb...I agree
But if u dnt have personal assistant like siri, google and what Sammy will get into next year you will fall short of sales even in 2017
People in the comments will complain about HTC no matter what, if the 3.5 jack is there, they'll complain about bezels, if both are OK, they'll complain about boring design and "nothing special" exactly as what we saw with htc 10.
So go HTC, do whatever you want, don't listen to Apple and Samsung fans.
Htc was the only brand left in market for audiophiles. Htc m9, 10 and even butterfly and desire models were the best for heaphones addicted. Audio quality on headphones was a very strong selling point at htc flagships. Now htc destroys their single interesting feature. Audiophiles didn't want bluetooth headphones anymore.The rest of the mobile phones need a headphones amplifier. Htc was the only one with a built-in solid , loud hp amplifier. Now it'gone. Htc is totally useless now. Go to hell, you are so so stupid, you deserve to die !!!
Are we going back to sony ericsson era again. you know... the jack and charger combination thing. yea its painful
Anonymous, 31 Dec 2016Pathetic, HTC copycat Apple. Never buy this brand again. Correct your facts. It was apple who stole design from htc one m7 in iphone6 and still following their design pattern.
Gibbs-kamhagh, 30 Dec 2016But... The display looks flat in the pics!Agreed
Stop the BS of not including a 3.5mm jack HTC....
Ohh, and curved screens are dumb...
