Battery Life

A good pair of headphones or Hi-Fi devices can make all the difference when it comes to listening to music, watching movies, or playing video games. They can also be a great way to enjoy Internet radio and podcasts, as well as phone calls. To do any of these tasks, they need to offer a good battery life, and these do just that.

Powered with an interchangeable module, the Astell&Kern A&futura SE180 comes with a powerful ESS ES9038PRO as its default configuration.

FUTURISTIC DIGITAL AUDIO PLAYER WITH  ONE-OF-ITS-KIND INTERCHANGEABLE DAC MODULES

The use of innovative interchangeable DACs gives you a whole new way of exploring premium Hi-Fi sound. This also improves the overall sonic performance of the player. The interchangeable modules are connected to the SE180 using a double-locking mechanism which is different from other products. The first locking structure connects the module to the SE180 while the second locking structure informs you that the module is successfully paired. The internal connectors of the SE180 are spring enabled to ensure a stable audio signal connection and to avoid connection failure, particularly during external shock. The SE180 blocks the power and radio frequency (RF) noise caused by the main unit. This unique and circuit separation structure effectively eliminates the noise leading to a pure music listening experience.
