I didn't listen to the clip but I'm quite prepared to believe that this was not a high priority for Samsung. I cannot imagine that the number of people who want a phone to be useful for recording live music without a microphone would be more than about 7 globally. It really isn't a useful feature to anyone except you and possibly a few others.
If you care about it, I recommend an external mic and a specialist recording app. Together these should be much better than anything the HTC One can manage with its internal microphone.
