This product supports the Qualcomm aptX Adaptive and AAC codecs.

ADVANCED ANC feature

This feature analyzes the playback sound and outside noise, and reduces only the noise while maintaining the playback sound quality. By reducing noises from outside such as trains, buses and so on, you can absorb yourself in the music without the need to raise the volume too much.

By rendering a natural sound that’s easy to listen to, this feature reduces the load on your ears caused by excessive levels.

LISTENING OPTIMIZER feature

This analyzes the audio in real time and adjusts the sound quality to best match how this product fits on your ears and your ear shape.
