In recent years, every small advantage has become a reason for a brand to brag about its competitors. In the presentations we see again and again how the advantages are compared to breastfeeding. The user usually pays a little less attention to the sound than to other elements such as the cameras, the screen or the battery. Recently, however, we are encountering big improvements in that regard.
The integration of the latest sound technologies can be as exclusive as many others. The most powerful smartphones on the market offer dual speakers, better quality and performance than ever, and compatibility with all types of sound technologies. One of them is that known as aptX HDthat we find in a good handful of smartphones and audio devices, though the list is growing every day. We’ll see what it is and how it helps improve the sound.

The original standard enables the transmission of music in 16-bit quality, ie in a quality that comes close to CDs, and helps to keep the wireless transmission low in the case of wireless transmission via Bluetooth. The improvement, however, came with aptx HD, which was born in 2016 and improves the sound admit High definition audio hasta 24 bit / 48 kHz. It also improves signal reception, reduces noise, and improves the perfectable details of sounds in songs.

Among them we can find terminals from Samsung, Sony, Motorola, Google, OnePlus or Xiaomi. You can consult them on the official aptx page List of supported devices. However, given the current frenetic release rate, it may not be entirely up to date.
However, a search in the application drawer of the settings menu of our mobile phone can cast doubt on whether our terminal is compatible or not. When we enable it, we will have to dive into developer options in most compatible terminals to be able to do this Choose aptx HD as one of the codecs compatible audio.
