    Please help me with a subtitle for a mobile app.

    Hi,
    We have a calling app, and its name is "Talk."
    I'd like to ask you to check if the following subtitles are OK or not for the app.
    (FYI, its icon shows a telephone image, so you can easily understand that this is a calling app.) 

    No.1
    Talk - High Quality Sound

    No.2
    Talk - with High Quality Sound

    No.3
    Talk - High Quality Voice Calls

    Besides, would you please tell me which one is the best??

    Thank you!!!

    Those are not called subtitles. They are slogans or taglines.
    No. 3 is the best but it is rather common and lacks the punch for a tagline.

    Thank you for your response, tedmc!

    However, in the Apple's guideline, the word "subtitle" is used.
