DSEE HX™ graph

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.

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.

Keep the music playing with long battery life and quick charging, giving 70 minutes of play after just 10 minutes of charge. 

Easy control, light touch and hands-free calling
