Hear the detail in every note
Never again do you have to miss a beat with the support for High Resolution Audio. LDAC technology gives you pristine sound quality for Bluetooth wireless devices, and DSEE HX upscales compressed audio formats to near high resolution quality.
Sony DSEE HX software improves your already existing sound source (those lossy MP3s or AACs) to near high resolution sound quality, breathing new life into your old tracks by upscaling compressed files.
Better Bluetooth® sound
LDAC transmits approx. 3x more data (at the maximum transfer rate: 990kbps) than ordinary Bluetooth Audio, which will allow you to enjoy High Resolution Audio content in amazing sound quality close to High Resolution.
