Truly authentic sound

Hear music that stays true to the original recording with High-Resolution Audio. Optimised for High-Resolution Audio, S-Master HX™ reduces distortion and allows you to enjoy all the subtleties in your music. 

The 9mm 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.

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
