Sony is previewing a plethora of new products at the IFA 2018 event happening in Berlin. In the audio segment, Sony has also announced the MDR-Z7M2 headphones, the successor to the highly acclaimed MDR-Z7 headphones.
The all-new MDR-Z7M2 inherits the technology from the Signature Series, including the Fibonacci-patterned grill that helps in minimizing the sound damping.
The headphones also come with a newly developed 70mm driver unit, aluminum-coated Liquid Crystal Polymer diaphragms. The dome of the diaphragm has been upsized and its profile optimized. Also, the associated magnet results into clear sound.
With dynamic range along with a “linear plane front wave,” the new Z7M2 puts a realistic reproduction of “air” for a spatial sound experience existing in a live music space. The headphones have silver-coated oxygen-free copper cables to minimize resistance and have less sound degradation
The ear pads of the Sony MDR-Z7M2 are ergonomically shaped with 3D sewing incorporation. They are comfortable even if worn for a longer period of time. The headband is made of synthetic leather and the aluminum alloy hanger and slider ensures the Z7M2 is lightweight yet durable.
The Sony MDR-Z7M2 premium headphones will be priced at approximately £750. They will be available in selected European countries from October 2018.
