The first headphones with MQA’s next-gen Hi-Res Audio are coming, but not this year

We’ve written a lot about the huge potential of SCL6, the new wireless audio format also known as MQAir, but complained about the lack of support for the adaptive hi-res wireless audio format. That looks set to change, however, with news that the developer of the codec, MQA, has announced a partnership promising a new set of next-generation hi-res headphones.

The partnership is with NAD sister brand PSB Speakers and audible app developer Sonical, with a press release boldly stating that the partnership will “define a new category of high-resolution audio headphones”. The catch is that they’re scheduled to launch in the first half of 2024. Still, these headphones sound “next-gen” in more ways than one.
