Porsche Design presents new PDH80 / Play Experience headphones

Porsche Design introduces its new PDH80 wireless headphones. The latest high-performance product in the design brand’s sound portfolio combines functional design with an unprecedented sound experience, allowing users to immerse themselves in a sensational world of sound anytime, anywhere.

High quality materials and an exclusive look

The design of the PDH80 combines three essential aspects of Porsche Design DNA: expertise, premium materials and functionality. The large, racetrack-shaped ear cups offer maximum comfort combined with an exclusive iconic look. The two ear cups are attached to the headband with a C-shaped hinge, which makes it possible to adjust the fit of the headphones individually. The solid metal feel ensures a high-quality user experience, and the subtle but visible cables add a technical touch to the overall purist structure. The functional design of the adjustable headband is specially designed for a comfortable listening experience. The upholstery of soft, textured leather is adorned with a Porsche Design embossing. The comfortable ear pads are filled with viscoelastic foam. The aluminum frame with the matte surface is an expression of Porsche Design’s timeless design philosophy.

Cut off from the world with Active Noise Cancellation

The exceptional over-ear headphones offer outstanding sound quality and maximum clarity thanks to the 50 mm neodymium drivers, which reproduce every single sound perfectly. The excellent anti-noise function “Active Noise Cancellation” (ANC) suppresses disturbing background noise, allowing the user to immerse themselves in their own clear and rich world of sound. By selecting four different modes – ANC Off, ANC High, ANC Low and Ambient Sound – the user can easily adapt their listening experience to different situations in order to enjoy music, videos, podcasts and phone calls in the best possible sound quality at any time – especially on the go . The integrated microphone with echo cancellation provides crystal clear sound for hands-free calls thanks to the wireless connection. The PDH80 is also compatible with all common language assistants.

Stroke, press, press – user-friendly touch controls

The engraved Porsche Design logo on the right earcup acts as a user-friendly touch control panel, allowing several functions to be operated quickly and easily by pressing, pressing or stroking – for example play / pause, back and forth or adjust the volume. The touch function also provides full control when accepting, rejecting, holding or ending calls. The PDH80 also has a wearer detection: If the user removes the headphones, the music playback stops automatically and resumes as soon as he puts them on again. If the headphones are not used for more than five minutes, they turn off automatically.

Outstanding battery life of 75 hours

With a battery life of up to 75 hours or 50 hours with ANC enabled, users do not have to worry about the power supply. LED lights on the ear cups show not only the pairing status but also the battery level. Charging status is also shown on the display of a device connected via Bluetooth. The battery is charged via a USB-C connection. A full charge only takes about two hours. The PDH80 can be connected to two devices at the same time via Bluetooth®, e.g. B. a smartphone and a notebook – so users can listen to music and answer calls at the same time. For Hi-Res audio, the headphones can also be connected directly to an external device via the input jack and the supplied audio cable. An in-flight adapter is also included, specially designed for pairing with an in-flight entertainment system. The headphones come with a high quality case for safe transport when you travel.

Porsche Design Headphones PDH80 are available for € 399 (RRP) in Porsche Design Stores, in specialty stores, online at http://www.porsche-design.com and in select online stores.
