High-Resolution Audio perfected by Sony
The richness and musical fidelity of High-Resolution Audio has gone mobile. Through technologies developed by Sony, you’ll hear what you’ve been missing.
The S-Master™ HX digital amp cuts distortion and noise across a wide range of frequencies.
DSEE HX™ upscales your existing music to near high-resolution sound quality.
Enjoy jaw-dropping sound quality
Like going from standard definition to HD video, High-Resolution Audio tracks are far higher quality than MP3s and even CDs, letting you hear every breath, every drumbeat, every note. Even better, the S-Master HX™ all-digital amplifier reduces potential distortion, ensuring you always get the full listening experience recorded in the studio.
