The Xperia Z2’s Speakers Go Up Against those of the Xperia Z1 and the Iconic HTC One, How Does it Fare?

March 10, 2014 - Written By Syed Sofian Rabbani

The Xperia Z2 has been creating waves since its announcement at the MWC, and rightly so, after all the Sony Xperia Z2 is the first handset in the Xperia series to boast of stereo front facing speakers. The concept of stereo front facing speakers is not something new, as a matter of fact, the Taiwanese manufacturer HTC were the first to sport dual stereo front facing speakers on their last years’ flagship – the iconic HTC One. It is not surprising then that once another competitor bearing front facing stereo speakers turns up, that people on the internet would want to compare the two.

However the Xperia Z2 has to not only contend with the HTC One, we have a video which compares the Xperia Z2 to its older sibling, the Xperia Z1 as well. The first comparison between the siblings was carried out at full volume, playing Katy Perry’s Roar. Though the Xperia Z2 doesn’t sound any louder than the Z1, the sound quality is fuller and deeper. By comparison, the Xperia Z1 doesn’t sound anywhere close, and comes out sounding tinny. You can check out the video below to see it for yourself. In comparison to its sibling, the Xperia Z2 does definitely sound better, however the HTC One is no cakewalk, after all the HTC One contains the best speakers by far.

On comparison to the HTC One, the Xperia Z2 is definitely on the louder side, though the sound quality, depth of the HTC One cannot be matched. In fact, the HTC One does have a soothing sound, though the Xperia Z2 does seem to have better bass. The final device comparisons can only come in once the Xperia Z2 hits the markets. Till then we will keep ourselves entertained with these and similar comparisons. However, we would love to hear your take on this. Check out the videos posted below.
