Sony MDR-Z7 High-Resolution Audio Headphones
Sony's flagship headphones reproduce subtle high frequency sounds up to 100kHz – a first for headphone technology. With 70mm HD drivers featuring Liquid Crystal Polymer diaphragms, and a full metal design, you get the clarity you need to enjoy High-Resolution Audio – for music that takes you closer to a live performance.
Absolute Sound Purity
Discover true sound with all the emotion and energy of the original recording. A huge 70mm HD driver powers through your music, keeping every note precise, even at higher volume levels.
Take your digital music collection to another level with High-Resolution Audio. By converting analogue music to digital at a higher rate than CD (24-bit/192kHz, rather than 16-bit/44.1kHz), High-Resolution Audio allows you to get closer to the original studio recording and enjoy your music just as the artist intended. With the Sony MDR-Z7 High-Resolution Audio Headphones you can really benefit from the greater level of detail.
Authentic Sound with Aluminium-coated LCP
The mighty 70mm HD driver units power through your music, keeping every note precise, no matter how high you turn up the volume. Because of their massive size, these drivers create a plane wave effect in the earcups that prevents reflection delays and minimises sound loss. So you can hear all the emotion and energy of the original recording with punchy bass and crystal clear high notes.
Combining a Liquid Crystal Polymer diaphragm with aluminium coating gives a more precise sound across the entire frequency range than a conventional LCP driver. Smaller 40mm drivers emit sound as spherical waves, which can lead to reflection delays within the earcups. The much larger 70mm driver creates a flatter plane wave effect that prevents reflection delays and sound loss.
Wide Frequency Response
The wideband frequency range – spanning 3Hz to 100kHz – is designed for today’s broad variety of music styles. The 3Hz low end of the frequency range offers more than enough latitude for even the deepest sub-bass notes. At the 100kHz high-end, you’ll be able to enjoy vocal melodies, subtle audio harmonics and tonality, giving your music more life and realism.
High Sensitivity for a Clear Performance
With a high sensitivity of 105dB/mW, these headphones are highly efficient in converting electricity into acoustic signals. That means you’ll hear a clearer sound across the entire audio spectrum (compared to less sensitive headphones) when listening to music through the same source and at the same volume level.
Balanced Audio Cuts Cross-talk
With a balanced 4-wire connection and silver-copper dual cord, audio channel separation is improved for better sound. Unlike conventional headphones which share a ground wire, the cord includes left, right and independent ground wires for both channels, so you’ll hear less distortion and cross-talk.
Enfolding Closed-back Design
The closed-back, enfolding design wraps around the ear, helping to seal in music and keep distractions out. Acoustics are reflected back towards your ears, so you’ll hear even the subtlest of sounds. You’ll also feel every beat, as the closed-back design helps to maximise the bass signatures in your music.
All Metal Design
Constructed in high density metal, these headphones suppress unwanted vibration and keep sound stable. The metal housing resonates less than housings made from more traditional materials to give clearer mids to highs and smoother low frequency sounds. A metal hanger sleeve, shaft and hinge ensures excellent durability. For wearing comfort, the light and flexible metal headband can be easily adjusted to fit perfectly around the head.
