LDAC: for the transmission of High-Resolution Audio content

Enjoy your music at greater than CD quality with LDAC wireless audio transmission. LDAC uses a conventional BLUETOOTH connection, but transfers at a maximum data transfer rate up to 990kbps - approximately three times that of other audio profiles. The result is enhanced wireless listening that's much closer to the artist's intention.

Digital noise cancelling for fewer distractions

When used with compatible IER-NW500N headphones, the NW-A40 Series' digital noise cancelling reduces the ambient noise you would normally hear from your surroundings. Microphones built in to the headphones work with the digital noise cancelling engine to cut out unwanted sound.
