Wireless Over-Ear Headphones with Pure Digital Drive
The ATH-DSR9BT Wireless Over-Ear Headphones with Pure Digital Drive is a new purely digital Bluetooth headphone by Audio-Technica. This new flagship over-ear wireless headphone is the very first headphone model that employs Audio-Technica’s pure digital drive system.
Pure Digital Drive System Technology
The ATH-DSR9BT wireless headphone model ditches the digital-to-analogue (DAC) conversion process used in most conventional headphones. Instead, the ATH-DSR9BT use what Audio-Technica calls Pure Digital Drive. This proprietary technology delivers pure digital sound from the original audio source to the headphone’s drivers to offer superior sound performance. The ATH-DSR9BT model is Bluetooth apt-X HD-enabled and utilizes a specially designed Trigence Semiconductor Dnote chipset that provides optimum dynamics and clarity for the headset’s 45mm drivers.
Inspired by the earlier MSR7 model, the ATH-DSR9BT Wireless Over-Ear Headphones features well-padded over-ear cups that ensure comfortable wear and balanced delivery. The grey finish has an understated appeal but looks like a sophisticated piece of silver. The headset features on-headphone touch controls for playback, pause, volume and answering/ending calls. It has three LED lights on the housing which indicates battery-life status, the codec in use, and whether the headphones are paired with a device.
Impactful Audio Quality
In addition to the new Pure Digital Drive system technology, the Audio-Technica’s ATH-DSR9BT headphones are designed to deliver high-resolution audio when connected to compatible sources via a USB cable (included). It works without needing a digital-to-analogue conversion that may lead to degraded or distorted sound quality. It uses exclusively designed 45mm True Motion D/A drivers that process the digital signals to produce a truly accurate and natural audio reproduction.
