Our music libraries are on all of our portable devices, whether they be phones, tablets or computers. But while your music libraries may be packed with great songs, if they aren’t in High-Resolution Audio you are not experiencing the sound quality that the artist intended you to hear.
While there are plenty of great High-Resolution Music downloading sites, Sony engineers have made it possible for you to listen to your regular music library in near High-Resolution Audio quality by developing the Digital Sound Enhancement Engine (DSEE HX™) Technology.
How Does DSEE HX™ Work?
While lossy music files (like MP3s) are great for saving space on your device, they are missing vital information from the song’s original recording file. On the other hand, High-Resolution Audio file formats (such as FLAC and WAV) are created with lossless compression that allows the original data from a recording to be reconstructed almost perfectly by a class of algorithms. DSEE HX™ Technology lies somewhere in between. Here’s how:
Sony DSEE HX™ software upscales your existing sound source (those lossy MP3s or AACs) to near high-resolution sound quality. This means that the technology injects more life into your music by upscaling compressed files. So it restores the subtleties of the original song recording and simulates the sound of live performance.
