By Juan Carlos Bagnell December 27, 2016, 8:30 am

Wrapping up 2016, we’re starting off with audio! Which phone had the best speaker performance? Which phone will do the best job powering your headphones? Can there be one overall winner for the audiophiles in our audience?

So let’s get to it. Time to take our final listen to all of the phones we reviewed this year and deliver a proper ranking!
