Published

on

Panasonic announced the launch of their new HJX20 and HJX5 high-end in-ear headphones. Along with a dual axial drive, a second coil and neodymium magnet are added to the speaker diaphragm of the RP-HJX20. Powerful magnetic forces from both front and rear effectively drive the diaphragm to produce powerful yet crisp, clear sound.

An axial design with a long, straight port and newly designed earpiece are used for HJX20 to optimize the large-diameter (13.5mm) Dual Axial Drive. This delivers crisp, powerful sound directly to the ears. The earpieces are specially designed to stay comfortably in place. The airtight structure blocks external sounds for enhanced musical enjoyment.

The use of aluminium chambers for both of HJX20 and HJX5 suppresses unwanted vibration to achieve clear sound with minimal distortion & the large space inside the housing produces rich, full-textured bass.
