Enjoy the subtlest nuances of studio-quality sound in higher-than-CD quality with High-Resolution Audio. Passion for music unites every component from signal to speaker, so it feels like the artist is performing right in front of you.
Each track sounds true, whatever the source
These headphones, featuring a built-in USB digital-to-analogue converter (DAC) amplifier, connect digitally to your devices to ensure your music sounds even closer to the original recording. And because the signal is only converted to analogue when it reaches the drivers, you’ll enjoy unmatched clarity and accuracy on every track.
Enjoy fine acoustics from a large driver and earcups that seal comfortably around your ears.
Hear deep lows and euphoric highs with a full range of sound up to 100kHz.
Play music loud and clear from any home system or portable device with high sensitivity of 102dB/mW.
Most portable devices include a simplified digital-to-analogue converter, resulting in slightly compromised sound quality. These headphones, with a dedicated USB DAC amp built in, take over control of the conversion process from your device, then amplify sound using the integrated S-Master HX digital amplifier.
Connecting digitally keeps music true to the original
Headphones with an integrated, dedicated DAC amp can control conversion and amplification. Music stays digital for longer, only converted to analogue as it reaches the drivers.
Listen to music from your PC, Xperia Smartphone, Walkman or iPhone using one of the supplied digital cables. Or connect to other players using a 3.5mm stereo audio cable.
Auto Select switches seamlessly between inputs for effortless connections.
Every subtle note, precisely reproduced
Tune in to clear, balanced sound that stays true to the original recording, even at high volume. The highly responsive liquid crystal polymer (LCP) diaphragm is aluminium-coated, and combined with a 40mm HD driver, gives a more consistent and precise sound across the entire frequency range than a conventional diaphragm.
High-Resolution Audio refers to a collection of digital processes allowing the encoding and playback of music using higher sampling rates than those used in CDs.
High-Resolution Audio typically records at 96kHz/24-bit or even 192kHz/24-bit – much higher than CD.
While CDs and MP3s top out around 20kHz, High-Resolution Audio supports frequencies above 24kHz (as high as 100kHz on this model) and a wider dynamic range.
Eliminates analogue components in the feedback stage for ultimate clarity in amplification.
Listen to music that’s faithful to the original sound with up to 192kHz/24-bit encoding.
Hear natural sound over a wide dynamic range with up to DSD128 support.
The enfolding design with ergonomic 3D earpads seals music in and keeps distractions out. Acoustics are reflected back towards your ears for the subtlest of sounds.
Style and comfort in perfect harmony
Iconic looks with a sleek metal headband and plush, black leather earpads. Pure comfort with a closed-back, wrap-around design that fits securely over your ears.
Soft leather earpads rise and shape around your ears for a snug, comfortable fit.
With smoother materials and discrete sewing, comfort and durability is exceptional.
Take your music anywhere. A sliding metal headband and swivel folding earcups make it easy to store your headphones in a suitcase when travelling.
Carry them around safely in the supplied bag – smart and hard-wearing.
Keep your headphones powered up and ready to go using the micro USB port.
Play music from nine to five with up to 8 hours of battery life.
Conveniently adjust the volume of your music tracks using a rotary-style controller on the headphones.
