With unassuming earcups packed with the bells and whistles you'd expect from an established German high-end manufacturer, Solitaire T makes its statement under its hood.
T+A built Qualcomm's premium QCC5127 Bluetooth receiver into Solitaire T, and that in turn hands over D/A duties to ESS' ES9218 DAC. With parts selection fitting of many music players it's little wonder Solitaire T is a reference closed-back headphone – Bluetooth or not.
Moving to Solitaire T's beating heart – a 42mm bio-cellulose driver – that moves copious amounts of air for bass quantity. T+A's optimised low-bass system produces a completely new kind of bass in Bluetooth, ensuring perfect transient response and preventing disruptions in the frequency response from standing waves and phase cancellation.
With the stiffness of bio-cellulose but especially its damping at higher frequencies, Solitaire T's driver never risks distortion due to cone or modal break-up as your music climbs into shorter wavelengths.
T+A's exclusive driver is truly audiophile and full-range. That's an important consideration given your ability to listen to Solitaire T with Bluetooth disconnected, switching instead to the supplied 4.4mm balanced cable for your Hi-Res Audio sources for full fidelity!
For a music empowerer, Solitaire T is amazingly still a lifestyle enabler. Four microphones – two for calls and another two for active noise-cancelling – keep you connected and only hearing what you want.
Solitaire T's aluminium components scream teutonic precision. Machined from solid material, and are pearl-blasted before being anodised by T+A, the ear caps are attached by means of precision-made, close-tolerance hard metal couplings.
This is versatile quality that's built to last, and ensure T+A accompanies you on the daily with the Solitaire T. After you're done with this keeper, also view our other Bluetooth offerings here.
