Nothing but the music

Focus on the music with exclusive Noise Cancelling headphones

Immerse yourself deeper in the sound, thanks to the NW-ZX100 series’ exclusive bundled headphones. Noise Cancelling mutes distractions from the world outside, so it’s just you and your music.

Precision engineered for superior sound

A host of premium components have been specially selected for use in our circuit boards, to deliver the best portable audio experience.

High rigidity

A high-rigidity frame keeps the circuit boards secure, preventing unwanted noise and distortion caused by external shifts or vibrations.

High-quality lead-free solder

High quality solder for a purer signal

We developed our own high-quality solder for reduced noise, which has improved sound resolution across the entire frequency range.

Low dielectric board

Low dielectric board for smoother audio

The low dielectric board insulates the circuit board, minimising electromagnetic interference for smoother sound. It also reduces energy loss, improving overall system efficiency.
