Behind-the-Scenes Stories of High-Resolution Headphones

Panasonic launched a new series of high-resolution headphones to meet the increase in high-res sound sources. The result was a pair of top-end, high-res models. Here we present the passion that went into creating these products.

What’s High-Resolution Audio

This refers to music data that approaches studio master quality. It expresses the atmosphere and ambience of recorded sounds, at a level exceeding CDs. The data is recorded with 96-kHz/24-bit or 192-kHz/24-bit sampling, in WAV or FLAC lossless or uncompressed format, and has approximately 3 to 6 times the data of a CD.
