Our distinctive blend of design, engineering, and ingenuity means that customers can always count on Sony for the sounds that matter.
How do we create Soul-Shaking Clarity? Through world-class hardware, studio experience + digital fine-tuning, signal processing, High-Resolution Audio, testing materials, adapting NASA science, waterproof MP3 players + precision-designed earphones.
From source to speaker, Sony has united an array of technologies for the ultimate audio experience. For High-Resolution Audio files, the digital amp and specialised tweeters reproduce every subtlety, so you hear each note as the artist intended. For MP3’s, digital processing software upscales compressed music to restore lost detail.
Magnetic fluid originated at NASA, but Sony is the first to apply it to home audio. By eliminating the damper, it reduces the gap between voice coil and diaphragm, resulting in better signal transfer, reduced distortion—and smaller speakers.
ClearAudio+ optimises music playback for different devices, so whether you’re listening on your Xperia™ phone, Walkman®, or VAIO® computer, your music will sound its best.
The latest S-Master HX digital amplifier reduces distortion and noise at all frequency ranges, from ground-shaking lows to delicate highs, making the sound as clear as possible.
