Xperia® XZ Premium

How music is meant to sound

With High-Resolution Audio, it’s almost like being there with the artist

You’ll hear every tiny detail of your recordings, with such presence it’s like being at your own private gig. Even compressed files in your playlist sound better, as DSEE HX™ lifts them up so they’re closer to studio quality.

Made for audiophiles

With sampling frequencies and bit-rates three to six times higher than CD or MP3, High-Resolution Audio makes music clearer, sharper, and more detailed. Close your eyes and you’re in the recording studio.

Enhanced Bluetooth® streaming

Enjoy near Hi-Res sound with wireless headphones or speakers

If you’re connecting to wireless speakers or headphones, LDAC ensures you don’t lose a drop of sound quality. It transfers three times more audio data than normal Bluetooth, so every note is crystal-clear.

Just you and your music

Noise canceling for undisturbed listening

The Xperia XZ Premium comes with Digital Noise Canceling (DNC) technology. Pair with DNC headphones to reduce up to 98% of exterior noise, for undisturbed enjoyment of your music.

Click play to hear the difference DNC makes.

Dynamic stereo sound all around

S-Force Front Surround gives you the experience of a natural three-dimensional sound field—so you can enjoy virtual surround sound with your two front speakers.

Different headphones, same great audio quality

Automatic Headphone Optimization (AHO) analyzes your headphone type to create the right sound for you. It balances the frequencies to give you the optimum audio signal, and it’s all automatic.

Immersive sound

Virtual Phones Technology (VPT) lets you experience virtually created surround sound through your headphones. Choose your favorite mode and enjoy rich, lifelike audio, as if you were in the room with a 5.1-channel speaker system.
