Media connectivity


Bluetooth® aptX® support
The aptX codec lets you enjoy improved audio quality when listening to compressed audio over Bluetooth. This is done by reducing the bit rate in a way that does not affect audio quality or introduce latency issues. With Bluetooth aptX support, you can get outstanding Bluetooth stereo audio quality that faithfully reproduces the full audio bandwidth.

  • Depending on a mobile phone.
  • Please see our website for details of compatible Bluetooth mobile phones.
