Sony MDR-Z7M2 Hi-Res Stereo Overhead Headphones with Portable Hi-Res DAC/Headphone Amplifier

The Sony MDR-Z7M2 Hi-Res Stereo Overhead Headphones are quality, comfortable Hi-Res headphones with precision in sound and performance, featuring a wide frequency range that brings the brilliance out of every note. This bundle from Focus Camera includes the Sony MDR-Z7M2 Hi-Res Stereo Overhead Headphones and a headphone amplifier.

Sony Portable Hi-Res DAC/Headphone Amplifier

The Sony PHA-2 portable headphone amplifier allows you to enjoy a high-resolution audio experience through your headphones. It can decode PCM audio sources at 192kHz/24-bit and DSD audio sources at 2.8 MHz / 5.6 MHz formats.

Flexible Connectivity

The PHA-2 is compatible with a wide array of digital devices. It has 3 USB inputs: standard A for iPod/iPhone/iPad devices, mini-B for hi-res Walkman and micro-B for PC or Mac. The PHA-2 also offers an analog input for connecting to most MP3 players, smartphones and other audio devices as well as a line out for external amp or active speakers.

Jitter-Free Audio

The amplifier features an asynchronous USB 2.0 clock that supports highly accurate DA conversions. The precision clock signal generator reduces timing inaccuracies when converting digital signals into analog waveforms. This maintains sound stage integrity and audio response, resulting in superior audio performance with minimal noise and distortion.

High-Quality Amplification Circuits

The PCM1795 DAC samples PCM audio at 192 kHz/24 bit and DSD audio at 2.8/5.6 MHz. The LME49860 operational amp delivers outstanding signal and performance with ultra-low distortion, low noise and high slew rate. The high bandwidth TPA6120 headphone amp minimizes noise, delivering than 120 dB of dynamic range to ensure music is heard with every detail.

Durable Construction and Materials

The compact aluminum enclosure protects the delicate circuitry inside from outside interference and impacts while alloy bumpers protect the volume knob and headphone connectors from external impact. Recessed control switches reduce the chance of accidental access during playback.

Flexible Headphone Support

A two-position, side-mounted gain switch allows you to optimize the PHA-2’s output level to match varying headphone impedances from 8 to 600 Ohm. Select between Low or High settings to maximize your listening experience.

Rechargeable Lithium-Ion Battery

The internal rechargeable battery provides approximately 6.5 hours of hi-res playback when connected digitally via USB input or up to 17 hours of playback when connected using the analog, 1/8-inch stereo input.

Sony MDR-Z7M2 Hi-Res Stereo Overhead Headphones

The MDR-Z7M2 headphones are quality, comfortable Hi-Res headphones with precision in sound and performance, featuring a wide frequency range that brings the brilliance out of every note. Newly developed 70mm drivers with Fibonacci Pattered Grills bring smooth ultra-high frequency characteristics, making full use of the richness of Hi-Res audio files.

High-Resolution Audio

Take your digital music collection to another level with High-Resolution Audio. By digitally capturing music at a higher rate than CD, High-Resolution Audio allows you to get closer to the original studio recording and enjoy your music just as the artist intended. 

70mm HD Driver Units

Newly developed HD driver units with a large diameter of 70mm, designed to cover most people’s ears, produce a plane wave front similar to that in a natural sound field and reproduce frequencies from 4Hz-100kHz. Every note stays precise and clear across a spacious sound stage, reproducing the emotion and energy of the original recording, with true vocal clarity and precise bass response, giving you top quality music and sound.

Fibonacci-Patterned Grill

Fibonacci-patterned grill reproduces the intended sound properties smoothly. It is made of stiff resin to achieve both thinness and strength and minimize sound damping from the grill at ultra high frequencies. 

4.4mm Balanced Cable Connection

Enjoy clear, precise and dynamic sound with a 4.4mm balanced connection cable, which separates left and right sound signals and reduces noise from the output signal. 

Ergonomic Earpads

A combination of three-dimensionally sewn synthetic leather surfaces and very thick low-repulsion urethane foam cushion provides an ergonomic shape to fit to the unevenness of the head and gives even pressure throughout the area. This reduces sound leakage by increasing the air-tightness and delivers the very best powerful heavy bass. Enjoy long hours of listening in comfort!

Aluminum-Alloyed Hanger and Slider

Aluminum alloy is used for hangers and sliders which form the backbone of the headphones. These guarantee both lightweight and long-lasting durability over the years.

Comfortable Earpad Materials

Soft urethane foam cushion with moisture-absorbing and releasing characteristics were chosen for the surface of the earpads to reduce the feeling of stuffiness and provide a comfortable extended listening experience.
