Pure sound, wireless freedom
True music at your fingertips
Feel the emotion behind every note. Featuring the newly developed LDAC codec – optimised for High-Resolution Audio class Bluetooth® streaming – these comfortable headphones capture the true essence of every track. Innovative new earcup touch controls allow you to connect with your music for an immersive listening experience.
Passion for sound
Every subtle note, precisely reproduced
Hear sound that stays true to the original recording, no matter how high the volume is turned up. A powerful 40mm driver, with an aluminium-coated Liquid Crystal Polymer (LCP) diaphragm, handles the heaviest beats with the utmost precision.
What is High-Resolution Audio?
High-Resolution Audio takes you closer to the original studio recording by converting analogue music to digital at a higher rate than CD (24-bit/192kHz, rather than 16-bit/44.1kHz). While CDs and MP3s top out around 20kHz, High-Resolution Audio supports frequencies above 24kHz (as high as 100kHz on this model).
Play music loud and clear from any home system or portable device with high sensitivity of 98dB/mW.
Digital Sound Enhancement Engine
DSEE upscales compressed digital music (MP3, ACC, ATRAC, and WMA). It restores the highs and lows lost in compression, producing rich sound closer to CD quality.
Highest quality Bluetooth streaming
Developed by Sony, the Bluetooth LDAC codec takes your music streaming to a new level. It supports up to three times greater bitrate than typical Bluetooth streaming, 96kHz sampling rates and more efficient coding for CD-quality wireless sound.
