Noise-cancelling and Ambient Awareness Mode
As well as being a revered brand in audiophile circles, Pioneer has experience developing devices to assist the hearing impaired. This technical experience helps make Pioneer’s active noise-cancelling technology among the most effective. External noise frequencies are neutralized with frequencies generated in opposite phase. Music blooms into a relaxing, comfortable, and satisfying listening experience. Ambient Awareness Mode, meanwhile, allows just enough sound in so you are not completely cut off from what is happening around you.
Go further on a single charge
Lightweight internal battery provides as much as 24 hours of operation playback. That’s enough to cover long flights without needing recharging, which takes about four hours via supplied USB cable. Also included is a headphone cable that lets you keep listening should the battery ever run low.
High-quality sound with Qualcomm® aptX™ HD audio*
Qualcomm® aptX™ HD audio ensures your Bluetooth-enabled S9 can reproduce high-definition audio at up to 48 kHz/24-bit (LPCM). Like aptX, which facilitates wireless playback indistinguishable from CD quality, aptX HD audio preserves data integrity with a unique transmission method resulting in a better-than-CD listening experience. With aptX HD audio, you can enjoy HQ music without cable hassles.
* Requires Qualcomm aptX HD audio-compatible source device.
Optimized for Google Assistant*
Need directions? Want to make a call just by voice? Maybe you like the idea of music control without touching your phone. You can do all this and more with the S9 supporting Google Assistant. With a press and hold of the button, you can ask Google Assistant to play songs, playlists, artists, and albums. Plus, enjoy news, podcasts, and radio. Get notified about new calls, messages, or events. Reply to friends, family, and colleagues using just your voice.
