DSR9BT & DSR7BT, Along With The SR9: The Newest From Audio-Technica: You all must be very much aware of the company as it falls among the list of manufacturing great headphones across the Globe. But this time they had done something really great but uniquely with their DSR9BT & DSR7BT headphones at this CES 2017. These two headphones are today’s headline everywhere with their unique tech behind their manufacturing.
DSR9BT & DSR7BT, Along With The SR9: The Newest From Audio-Technica:
The company had used these headphones to believe the best music beats without requiring any built-in DAC i.e Digital to analog. Almost every headphone had yet used any such type of converters with their products in one or the other way but for the first time, Audio-Technica had done that without using it.
Digital to analog converters are although a standard part of any digital playback system. When you will look closely will definitely find them either inside your source device like in a case of a smartphone or inside the headphones itself. These headphones from the manufacturer consist of Pure Digital Drive System that clearly means that the headphone’s speakers can directly respond to a digital signal without the need for any conversion.
With the introduction of this Pure Digital Drive System, it’s now to move on a step forward in the audio technology & it’s finally going to kill the DAC technology overall. If we get into detailed view of the tech, although t is not very clear but the company had relied on a specially designed Trigence Semiconductor Date Chipset, whose version had already been employed in the Clarion in car audio systems. Through this, the speaker inside the headphone easily reads digital signals directly hence leading to greater power efficiency & “a true, accurate & natural audio production” as the Audio-Technica quotes in its statements.
While talking about the DSR9BT, it has a 4 core voice coil, which distinguishes it from the other model i.e DSR7BT which consists of just 1 core voice coil. Although both of them are featuring a diaphragm coated with a diamond-like carbon material. You must not be aware of the thing that these rigid materials like diamond are the best things to use while creating speaker cones without distorting. The DSR9BT & DSR7BT both can handle 24-bit/48kHz of music over Bluetooth & also supporting aptX HD, aac & SBC codecs as well. Also, they can handle up to 24-bit/96kHz when connected through a USB cable, supporting NFC for direct pairing too.
The SR9: New Wired Flagship:
Something more to go in addition for these wireless duos from Audio-Technica is the all new SR9, which is a new wired flagship in the category of portable closed back cans. The SR9 is a close sibling in the company’s lineup than the MSR7 which is also publically praised being an awesome pair yet. Although the SR9 is significantly put a bit higher in price & has great specs to match up the same. The SR9 also features a diaphragm coated with diamond-like carbon structure & offering a frequency ranging from 5Hz to 45kHz which probably is a refined & well balanced pro-grade sound in terms of Audio-Technica.
Price & Availability:
The all three Audio-Technica models that are announced today at the CES 2017 will be hopefully made available by the starting February this year. Their costs have been also set & they are as: For DSR9BT its $615, The DSR7BT for $368 & lastly the wired SR9 will cost you about $573.
