This is where HTC shines. HTC phones maybe crap nowadays but their audio is the best on phones.
Tourettes Guy, 13 Jan 2017In short, Samsung would still suck in terms of audioSony walkman and smartphone are trash, only their head/earphones are good, just good not the best. For digital audio player i trust Astell & Kern and Fiio, for the headphone i trust AKG, Shure and Sennheiser.
Sony audio only for amateur audiophiles with some fancy gimmick features.
galaxys6owner, 13 Jan 2017IT is Better than sony anywayNot even close to being as good as Sony, but Nice try troll.

Harman is getting a bit greedy there. Samsung's offer is pretty fair.
galaxys6owner, 13 Jan 2017But why would you want that? I think Harman should stay an independent company and shouldn't be bought, but if it would be bought, I would definitely be against Samsung.

Shaun Moroz, 13 Jan 2017Excellent! Hope the deal will be blocked :)But why would you want that?

everyone scared of shamesung.. which is one of a handfull of super technology providers found all around you and leading.

Lol. What is this 2009?
Lol listen to all these people moaning!
Who cares wether Samsung have Harmon or not! Ah yes Apple sheep's do because it's perfectly fine for Apple to have beats now....
I really don't understand people going on about speaker music on phones??? If I want to listen to music I use in ear headphones not be like sad irritating people on public transport blaring music out and annoying everyone else!
Whatever happens the S8 will still sell!
M.G, 13 Jan 2017You shouldn't speak when you have no idea what you're speaking! market share price doesn't ac... moreAgree. otherwise why would Samsung pay a premium? because it's potential is much more than current value.
sr777, 13 Jan 2017So true, that's why nobody buys Samsung products. Good sarcasm.
uzi.m, 13 Jan 2017Err no. HTC has had the best audio quality but people don't buy based on audio quality nor hea... moremany iPhone consumers bought it because of wrong perception of high-quality and because their peers steered them in that direction. I suspect that in the US a bit of brand patriotism plays as well.
As for Samsung many people buy Samsung because Samsung forces shops to only have their assortment which gives the idea that besides Apple there's only Samsung. As for my own situation I've decided that my Galaxy S5 would be my last Samsung phone. But unfortunately I haven't bought another phone since and in fact still use that S5 as my daily driver. Since all handset manufacturers are fucking up (no headphone-jack? Who's crazy idea is THAT?) I haven't felt the need to upgrade. Especially since my S5 is today still faster than many newer phones and still run all the apps that I require. I also believe that I'm not as vulnerable to propaganda as many others (with regards to supposed "security patches" and OS upgrades).

Ookii, 13 Jan 2017Wonder if Harman's shares will fall all the way back to 77.91 (early Nov price) if the offer i... moreExactly. What these shareholders fail to understand is that the share price is at 110$ currently due to the announcement of this deal, this deal goes away so does that share price.
