The earbuds themselves are equipped with a new Integrated Processor V2 which is said to “unlock the potential of the HD Noise Cancelling Processor QN2e”. These are in charge of controlling the microphones in the earbuds for unprecedented noise-cancelling quality.

For audio quality, they also have the new Dynamic Driver X which improves the reproduction of lower frequencies from the last generation. It also enables a wide frequency reproduction and clear vocals. Meanwhile, the unique polyurethane foam Noise Isolation Earbud Tips help reduce noise in the high-frequency range.
