Electro Bass Booster for club-like beats

Feel your headphones throbbing with deep, club-like bass. The Electro Bass Booster is a powered bass enhancer that increases low-frequency sound using Digital Signal Processing. Driven by the rechargeable battery in the headphones, this technology provides more of a multi-sensory, deep bass experience than conventional bass boost enhancers. You can turn Electro Bass Booster on and off, depending on the music you are listening to.

Tight bass with Beat Response Control

Beat Response Control technology delivers tight, deep bass response, making it perfect for low-end focused music styles. An air vent maximises airflow within the low frequency range, optimising the efficiency of the diaphragm to enable more accurate reproduction of bass rhythms.

Advanced Direct Vibe Structure for balanced bass

The headphones’ Advanced Direct Vibe Structure ensures you’ll be able to enjoy balanced bass response – whatever your musical style. Each ear cup contains two flexible diaphragms, front and rear, that are tightly sealed to isolate your music’s bass signatures for a smooth, resonating low-end response.

Wide frequency response for a full range of sound

The wideband frequency range – spanning 3Hz to 28kHz* – is designed for today’s bass-heavy music. The 3Hz low end of the frequency range picks up every powerful sub-bass note, while at the 28kHz high-end, you’ll be able to enjoy vocal melodies in outstanding clarity. * Passive operation only; 20Hz to 20kHz A2DP

High sensitivity for a loud, clear sound

With a high sensitivity of 102dB/ mW, these headphones are highly efficient in converting electricity into acoustic signals. This means you’ll hear a louder 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.
