aptX HD is the transmission of audio files via Bluetooth without any loss of quality. This gives you a better sound when listening to music (as compared to devices which do not run aptX or aptX HD). For the best audio experience, it is imperative to have three things:
You can easily download/stream your music from sites that offer them (Pirated sites are simply a NO) or take them from a friend via pendrive, microSD or OTG. You could check out this article to find out if your phone supports aptX HD. Last but not the least, if you need an aptX HD headphone, just check out these options below:
The Aventho Wireless is the fruit of years of R&D by German audio giant, Beyerdynamic. The metal build and soft ear cushions make this supremely comfortable so that you can sit back and enjoy gorgeous audio.
This on-ear showcases the perfect blend between Beyerdynamic and Mimi Hearing Technologies, a specialist known world-over for its sound personalisation. Professionals of both brands have created an app, the MIY app that lets you customise your sound. With the app you can track your daily listening habits, adjust the sensitivity of the touchpad controls, create your very own sound profile and lots more!
In terms of sound, you get a powerful bass, lifelike and detailed mids as well as sibilance-free highs. Qualcomm aptX HD, Bluetooth v4.2 and Tesla technologies ensure that there is no loss in audio resolution and the huge battery life lets you listen to your Aventho Wireless for 30 hours straight!
The Bowers and Wilkins PX is a smart headphone. It has intuitive sensors that can tell when your wearing the headphone and when you’re not. If you lift a earcup or hang it around your neck, the music will automatically pause (Cool right?).
The PX is crafted from premium materials. The earcups are elliptical and covered in ballistic nylon. Soft leather makes it super-comfy. The drivers give you a deep heavy bass, slightly recessed mids and lifelike vocals. You can listen to your favourite songs for a good 22 hours (with noise cancelling on).
This headphone comes with 3 noise filters to attenuate external noise. With the first filter i.e. Flight, you can block out noise entirely. The second filter, City, reduces external sound so that you can enjoy music while staying aware of your surroundings. The Office filter cancels out all background sound, but if there is anyone talking to you or a discussion nearby, you will be able to hear it. You can control these filters with the PX app.
The Sony WH1000XM2 has an unassuming simple design that covers some of the best audio technology available at its price.
With Bluetooth, LDAC and aptX HD you can get Hi-Res audio. Digital Sound Enhancement Engine HX (DSEE HX™) restores audio lost in transmission so that you can listen to only the best.
The Adaptive Sound Control lets you adjust the noise cancellation level. So whether you want to entirely cancel out external sound or just reduce noise while still being able to hear your surroundings, you can do it all.
With its battery life of 30 hours (with NC on), you can listen to deep, punchy bass, natural-sounding mids and crystal-clear highs. You can control all your music settings at the touch of a button with the Sony Headphones Connect App.
The Meters OV-1B is built to be stunning and durable. It is made of lightweight alloys as well as a premium protein leather headband.
A unique feature of this headphone is the VU meter on the side of the earcups. While originally designed to let the listener monitor his/her audio output level, it certainly does look super-cool and is sure to grab eyeballs if you step out in it.
Active Noise Cancellation lets you listen to your favourite songs for 10 continuous hours without being disturbed by external noise.
This headphone comes with an extremely deep, tight and punchy bass. The mids and highs, however, are a little reduced when compared to the lower frequencies.
The Sony WH-H900N is almost similar to its older brother on this list, the Sony 1000MK2, so we are not going to go in too much detail to discuss it. This headphone has a battery life of 28 hours (with noise cancellation on). A mere 10 minutes of charging give you 65 minutes of battery power. The best part of this over-ear is that it is available in numerous colours (unlike the 1000MK2) like blue, green, gold, red and more!
