Sony offers £275 high-res audio package to Z3+ customers

The bundle includes Sony’s MDR-10RC on-ear headphones, which are compatible with high-resolution audio, and six high-res audio albums through Sony’s Xperia Lounge app. Also included in the deal is a three-month subscription to CD-quality lossless streaming service, Tidal.

The Z3+ features Sony’s Digital Sound Enhancement Engine (DSEE) technology, which is claimed to upscale tracks automatically. The technology aims to restore high-frequency signals and fine fade-out sound, which is lost in compressed audio files.

The smartphone also has built-in Digital Noise Cancelling technology, which promises to block out external sound.

The package is available to customers who get their Z3+ through Carphone Warehouse, Vodafone and O2.

The Sony Z3+ was launched in May 2015, as an evolution of the outgoing Award-winning Z3, with a slimmer, lighter body, and a faster processor. The Full HD display and 20.7-megapixel camera of its predecessor remain.

It’s available now in black, white, aqua green and copper finishes.

But being the wonderful English guy he is, he helps out with content across a number of Future sites, including What Hi-Fi?. It wouldn't be his first exposure to the world of all things hi-fi and home cinema, as his first role in technology journalism was with What Hi-Fi? in the UK. Clearly he pined to return after making the move to Australia and the team have welcomed him back with arms wide open.
