High Resolution Audio (HRA) files bring you as close as possible to the original studio master recording, with a wide frequency bandwidth and a high dynamic range that exceeds the capabilities of the 16bit/44.1kHz CD format. Onkyo has taken an end-to-end approach that encompasses the Onkyo HF Player app, Onkyo Music downloading service and the acoustic design of Onkyo’s HRA headphones. This ensures no weak links in the audio chain and allows Onkyo to faithfully reproduce complex HRA files, enabling you to hear every subtle detail of the original studio recording.
The Onkyo sound signature is clean, clear and precise. This is created in the A800 through 50mm High Power drivers with multi-layer diaphragms that smooth high frequencies to deliver crisp details and subtle nuances in music. Their open back acoustic architecture creates a wider, more accurate soundstage, with clear separation between individual instruments. Using specially designed low impedance oxygen-free copper (OFC) ribbon cable, audio signal transmission is improved for further refined sound.
A modern gold and black design echoes the looks of traditional musical instruments, emphasizing the A800’s ability to deliver an unforgettable listening experience. Using a premium breathable velvet material coupled with memory foam, they boast extended wearing comfort with heat-dissipating properties and a contoured fit. Precision engineered from a sturdy yet lightweight aluminium housing, the perfect balance between durability and wearability is struck.
