The Solitaire T headphones by T+A aim to redefine the audiophile experience, combining excellence in work, travel, and sound quality. Built on T+A’s enduring values, these headphones offer a blend of optimal performance and versatility, providing top-notch sound quality in any setting.
At the heart of the Solitaire T lies its commitment to pristine sound quality. Detailed attention during the development phase ensures the 42mm transducer delivers optimal sound without interference. Whether in active or passive mode, the sound is nothing short of exceptional, making every musical nuance discernible. High-quality components like the Qualcomm QCC 5127 Bluetooth chip and the Esstech ES9218 Sabre DAC further elevate the listening experience, guaranteeing top-notch audio playback.
T+A Solitaire T Features
Open-back headphone designs are often higher-performance but have poor noise isolation and leak sound. Closed-back designs provide better noise isolation and leak less sound.
Over-ear headphones sit over your ear and surround your ear with a ring of padding. On-ear headphones are padded but rest on top of your ear. In-ear monitors are worn inside your ear canal.
Speakers and headphones use a device called a 'driver' to create sound. Different types of drivers have different strengths and weaknesses, but can all produce great sound. Common varieties include dynamic, planar magnetic, and electrostatic.
Connectivity refers to the method in which the headphones connect to the audio source. Headphones can be either wired or wireless.
Exceptional Transducer System
The Solitaire T comes with a novel transducer system, adept at revealing even the subtlest of sound nuances, whether in active or passive mode. Its passive sound insulation effectively muffles external noises, but when paired with its active noise cancellation feature, distractions vanish, immersing the listener in pure, unadulterated sound.
Sturdy Design with Aesthetic Appeal
Machined from solid, the pearl-blasted aluminium components not only exemplify superior craftsmanship but also promise longevity. This meticulous design draws inspiration from T+A’s Solitaire P reference headphones, emphasizing their shared heritage while also establishing the Solitaire T’s unique identity.
The Solitaire T prides itself on versatility. Equipped with symmetrical passive and active analogue inputs, USB C, and premium wireless Bluetooth capabilities, it seamlessly connects to a wide range of music sources, ensuring unparalleled sound quality.
Noise Cancellation and Portability
Emphasizing its adaptability, the Solitaire T offers exemplary noise suppression in both active and passive modes. While the passive insulation efficiently drowns mid-range and treble disturbances, the precisely-calibrated active suppression system counteracts bass noises. Bluetooth 5.1 coupled with advanced codecs like aptX HD and AAC ensures wireless connectivity without compromising sound quality.
Design, Materials, and Comfort
The Solitaire T's design, refined over four decades, showcases T+A’s commitment to simplicity and elegance. Machined from solid aluminium and adorned with finely-tuned chamfers, this headphone fits perfectly within the Solitaire family. The rotatable ear caps, premium synthetic leather pads, and compact folding design make it an ideal travel partner, ensuring comfort throughout prolonged use.
Understanding that headphones are intimate devices, T+A has made the Solitaire T’s operations straightforward and intuitive. Be it buttons, switches, or the touchpad, every action is validated by a multi-sensory feedback, including the unique T+A voice prompt. This ensures users always remain in control.
