MDR-1ABT Wireless Headphones

Sony MDR1ABTS

Features

  • Powerful 1.57 in HD drivers with large vents allow the headphones to deliver punchy, rhythmic bass on even the most demanding track. A light but rigid liquid crystal polymer diaphragm responds quickly to reproduce vocals and mid-high range notes with intense clarity. Turn up the volume and hear clear, precise sound across the spectrum.
  • An aluminum-coated, liquid crystal polymer diaphragm produces a more consistent and precise sound across the entire frequency range compared with conventional LCP drivers. Sound energy lost during transmission to the headphone housing is more uniform for a true and authentic performance. And enjoy a flatter frequency response, even when listening to High-Resolution Audio.
  • Precisely sculpted vents maximize the airflow in the headphone, allowing the LCP diaphragm to breathe more easily and deliver an instant response to powerful low-end bass lines.
  • Take your digital music collection to another level with High-Resolution Audio. By capturing music at a higher rate than CD, increasing both audio samples per second and the bitrate accuracy of each sample, High-Resolution Audio offers a near-perfect capture of an artist's music. Savor every breath and subtle movement for a truly emotional experience.

What is High-Resolution Audio"

High-Resolution Audio takes you closer to the original studio recording by converting analog music to digital at a higher rate than CD (24 bit/192 kHz rather than 16 bit/44.1 kHz). While CDs top out at around 20 kHz, High-Resolution Audio supports frequencies over 24 kHz (as high as 100 kHz with this model).

  • Feel like listening to your music without Bluetooth" Just connect the supplied audio cable to your headphones and plug into your favorite music player for high-quality sound.
