The Way The Artists Truly Intended

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.

Clear and authentic, every time

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.

40mm driver

Comfortable listening

Enjoy fine acoustics from a large driver and earcups that seal comfortably around your ears.

Ultra wide frequency range

Ultra wide frequencies

Hear deep lows and euphoric highs with a full range of sound up to 100kHz.

102dB/mW high sensitivity

High sensitivity

Play music loud and clear from any home system or portable device with high sensitivity of 102dB/mW.

Superior conversion, purer sound

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. 

Unmatched clarity and accuracy 

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.

Multiple inputs

Multiple connections

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.

Passion for sound

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.  

What is High-Resolution Audio?

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 frequency recording

Record at a higher frequency than CD

High-Resolution Audio typically records at 96kHz/24-bit or even 192kHz/24-bit – much higher than CD.

Ultra wide frequency range 

Hear more realistic, emotive sound

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.

S-Master HX

S-Master HX digital amplifier

Eliminates analogue components in the feedback stage for ultimate clarity in amplification.

Pulse Code Modulation

Pulse Code Modulation

Listen to music that’s faithful to the original sound with up to 192kHz/24-bit encoding.

Direct Stream Digital

Direct Stream Digital

Hear natural sound over a wide dynamic range with up to DSD128 support.
