Sony Xperia Z3 Brings High-Res Audio To The Phone

High-Res AudioLast year, the release of the LG G2 was the first to bring high-res (24bit/192kHz) music to the smartphone. Sony join the club with the new Xperia Z3. This comes as no surprise after the announcement of their Walkman A15 (An Affordable High-Res Music Player) at this year’s IFA.
The Z3 will also feature Sony’s DSEE HX (Digital Sound Enhancement Engine), which will up-rate all your lower resolution MP3 and AAC files, by focusing on the higher frequencies. The front-facing stereo speakers should produce some nice clear and loud sound, similar to that of the HTC One M8.

MDR-NC31EMThe Z3 will work perfectly with Sony’s new digital noise cancelling headphones. The MDR-NC31EM retail at £50.99 on Sony’s site.

The Xperia Z3 will be released to the UK on 26 September, view more here.
