TECHNOLOGIES

Listening Care

With typical headphones, low-volume listening goes hand-in-hand with a pronounced reduction of certain frequency ranges, resulting in listeners cranking up the volume to levels that may affect long-term hearing health.

Listening Care solves for this, encouraging lower-volume listening by intelligently adjusting sound frequencies to maintain the full-range sound, allowing you to hear every note and not miss a beat. Select models feature enhanced functionality, intelligently analyzing music and background noise in real time to automatically and adaptively achieve the best balance at a listener’s selected volume setting.

Advantages of this product

LISTENING CARE feature

This product features LISTENING CARE, which lets you enjoy rich sound quality even at low volumes.

Focusing on the characteristics of the human ear where the low- and high-end sounds become harder to hear at lower volumes, as well as how things sound differently in different listening environments, this feature corrects the sound balance for the optimal sound to match the volume. By rendering a natural sound that’s easy to listen to, this feature reduces the load on your ears caused by excessive levels.
