Truly authentic sound
Hear music that stays true to the original recording with High-Resolution Audio. Optimized for High-Resolution Audio, S-Master HX reduces distortion and allows you to enjoy all the subtleties in your music. The 0.35" dynamic driver maintains drive force for deep bass and clear mids without dropping off like other drivers, while the airtight Balanced Armature driver provides natural high frequency sound for longer. Both drivers work together to keep sound response steady across the frequencies.
Wireless streaming at its best
LDAC transmits approximately three times more data (at the maximum transfer rate of 990 kbps) than conventional BLUETOOTH wireless audio, which allows you to enjoy High-Resolution Audio content in exceptional sound quality close to High Resolution Audio.
Restore all your compressed files
Digital Sound Enhancement Engine HX (DSEE HX) upscales compressed digital music files, bringing them closer to the quality of High-Resolution Audio. By restoring the high-range sound lost in compression, DSEE HX produces your digital music files in rich, clear sound.
