We’re sure many of us use our phones to play music, and for the most part it sounds alright. Of course it matters what kind of earphones and headphones you use, along with the type of file (whether it’s just MP3 or a lossless format like FLAC), and yes sometimes it does matter what device you are using to play it. Audiophiles can get picky when it comes to choosing a media player as the sound processing engine does play a part in replicating good sound quality as well, and while we can’t speak for Archos’ 40b Titanium yet, this is a device that the company has announced that will be aimed at the music lover in mind.
According to Archos, the 40b Titanium will feature an “enhanced audio system” and will also pack dual-front facing speakers to deliver “crystal clear and pure stereo sound”, which in a way reminds us of the HTC One and its front-facing stereo speakers. Apart from those features meant to appeal to music enthusiasts, the 40b Titanium isn’t much when it comes to hardware. It will pack a dual-core MediaTek processor clocked at 1.3GHz, 512MB of RAM, and 4GB of onboard storage. It will also come with a 5MP camera, a VGA front camera, a 1,400mAh battery with Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. Then again with its price tag of just £100, it doesn’t seem too bad, does it?
