The power on sound is now alarmingly loud. I seem to recall that even when my phone was set to vibrate or silent the power on sound was still audible (Sprint). Someone with the phone in hand, on your proposed carrier, will be able to confirm for you.

Check out a video showing you what to expect (bloody loud):
Youtube | HTC One Unboxing and Power up - 5 Min. 20 sec.
I am really hoping they can/will resolve the sound with an update. Going from silent to +1 is an obnoxiously large jump in volume. From +1 to MAX is far more incremental. I know others have posted a few equalizer apps you can download... but c'mon. You shouldn't have to download a freaking EQ just to hold sounds down to a moderate level.
