Sony launches High Resolution Audio Line

Sony yesterday launched their latest line of High Resolution Audio. Also known as Hi-Res Audio, this represents the highest audio quality recording available with today’s technology, just as the artist or performer intended their music to be heard as if you are listening to the artist live. Sony engineers recreated this experience by carefully studying how to reproduce music without compromise by using top notch quality materials as well as keeping the comfort and premium design and construction quality in mind.


Displayed in the launch event dubbed as the “Sony Sound Workshop” were the award-winning Sony SRS-X9 Wireless Speakers, the Sony MDR-ZX750BN Wireless Headphones and other Hi-Res Audio capable headphones and portable amplifiers, as well as the smallest and lightest Hi-Res Audio music player, the Walkman A15.
