Pioneer’s ‘Scene Style’ series adds new range-topping noise-cancelling wireless headphones supporting Hi-Res Audio and Google Assistant

Pioneer has added the S9 wireless noise-cancelling headphones (SE-MS9BN) optimised for the Google Assistant and Hi-Res Audio to its Scene Style series. The S9 features large 40mm diameter rare-earth-magnet drivers to enable Hi-Res Audio reproduction, and the headphones support Qualcomm aptX HD audio*3 for playback liberated by the freedom of a wireless connection.

Buttons and a microphone on the headphone housing allow the listener to easily adjust the volume, skip tracks, and take calls*. The S9 also features NFC functionality for instant device pairing. A maximum continuous transmission time of 27 hours (NC OFF/including music playback time) extends entertainment between battery recharges.

Continue your conversations while on the go and easily access the best of Google, from Google Play Music to Google Maps. You can quickly enjoy entertainment, stay connected to friends, get information, and manage your day all without glancing at your phone. Listen to your favourite songs, have notifications and messages read to you, or set reminders and timers. Just press and hold the button to start a conversation with your Google Assistant. The S9 features large 40mm rare-earth-magnet drivers and CCAW (Copper-Clad Aluminium Wire) voice-coils. In addition to AAC and Qualcomm aptX codecs, the S9 also supports Qualcomm’s aptX HD audio codec. Active noise-cancelling technology detects external sounds and generates frequencies in opposing phase to cancel them out. For situations where it’s desirable to hear some outside sound, Ambient Awareness Mode intelligently filters it in, for improved situational awareness.

Multi-Point Function allows two smartphones to be wirelessly connected to the headphones at the same time. Take calls with one phone and listen to music with another. This offers an easy-to-manage solution for people who have both work and private phones. SE-MS9BN noise-cancelling wireless headphones with Google Assistant – £199.99, available in black or gold finishes, available from the end of November.
