Due to Bluetooth® technology bandwidth limitations, Hi-Res audio may not stream properly on Bluetooth speakers.
However, devices such as the Sony NWZ-ZX2 Walkman® player with the LDAC™ technology offer an enhanced wireless listening experience for all your music. LDAC is a new Bluetooth audio technology from Sony that allows you to enjoy high quality wireless audio, with 3x more data transmitted than with standard Bluetooth.
The MDR-1000X Supports Four Type of Bluetooth Codecs
- SBC: Industry standard
- AAC: Used mainly by Apple®. Has higher sound quality than SBC, but still not nearly Hi-Res.
- aptX: Used mainly by some Android™ smartphones. Has higher sound quality than SBC, but still not nearly Hi-Res.
- LDAC: Used only on some Sony products.
Note: LDAC is the best Bluetooth sound quality available that provides near Hi-Res quality music playback at 990 kbps, which is 3 times better than SBC.
