What is High-Resolution Audio?

High Resolution Audio is a collection of digital processes and formats. Music is encoded and played back using higher sampling rates than the standards used in CDs.

High frequency recording

Record at a higher frequency than CD

High Resolution Audio typically records at 24bit/96kHz, or even 24bit/192kHz – much higher than CD.

Ultra wide frequency range

Hear a full range of sound

A wide 4Hz–40kHz frequency range complements the top-end notes of High-Resolution Audio.

Dual layer cord

Superior listening

The XBA-A2 headphones are supplied with a 1.2 metre dual layer cable, featuring a copper wire for clear highs and sheathed in silver for rich bass.

AP cord

Easy hands-free calls
