Truly authentic sound

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

These headphones also include a powerful 1.57" driver with Liquid Crystal Polymer (LCP) diaphragm for handling heavy beats, and can reproduce a full range of frequencies up to 40 kHz. 

Restore all your compressed files

The Digital Sound Enhancement Engine HX (DSEE HX) upscales compressed digital music files (MP3, ACC, ATRAC and WMA) and takes 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, natural sound. 

DSEE HX

High quality wireless listening with LDAC

LDAC transmits approximately three times more data (at the maximum transfer rate: 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.

Synthetic leather earpads

Luxurious leather

Soft synthetic leather on the housing and earpads give a luxurious look and feel. Designed to fit securely over your ears for hours of comfortable listening.

Swivel fold design

Ready to travel

Swivel folding earcups make it easy to store your headphones in a suitcase, bag or the supplied carrying case while traveling.  

Swipe and tap

Swipe and tap
