Digital Noise Canceling for fewer distractions

Digital Noise Canceling reduces a variety of ambient noise when listening to music. Two microphones built in to the headphones, one outside and one inside the housing, work with the digital noise canceling engine to cut out unwanted sound.

Noise Canceling AI adapts to your surroundings

The Automatic Noise Canceling AI function constantly analyses the ambient sound and automatically selects the most effective Noise Canceling mode.

A built-in microphone and HD voice support enables you to conduct crisp, clear hands-free calls.

Dynamic HD drivers deliver authentic sound

1.57 in High-Resolution compatible HD driver units reproduce frequencies up to 40 kHz and deliver a powerful, responsive low range. The lightweight CCAW voice coils deliver a high-linearity response for stable, true-to-source high frequencies.

Beat Response Control

Beat Response Control technology delivers a tight, deep bass response, making it perfect for low-end focused music styles. Acoustic port on the housing controls air flow for the low frequency range and optimizes diaphragm movement to enable more accurate reproduction of bass.
