How does it work?
A built-in amplifier integrated in HD Noise-Canceling Processor QN1 realizes the best-in-class signal-to-noise ratio and low distortion for portable devices, and delivers exceptional sound quality. Powerful 1.57 » drivers, with Liquid Crystal Polymer (LCP) diaphragms, make the headphones perfect for handling heavy beats and can reproduce a full range of frequencies up to 40 kHz.
LDAC transmits approximately three times more data (at the maximum transfer rate of 990 kbps) than conventional BLUETOOTH® wireless audio, allowing you to enjoy High-Resolution Audio content in exceptional quality, as close as possible to that of a dedicated wired connection.
Unique Personal Optimizing analyzes the sonic characteristics caused by head size, glasses, and hair, then optimizes sound to you.
