News from Munich today from T+A on the launch of their new Solitaire T headphones. Taking style notes and DNA from the ‘Rolls Royce’ of the range, the Solitaire P, these Solitaire T feature a full range dynamic driver as opposed to the planar magnetic delivery of the Solitaire P and the Solitaire P-SE. The Solitaire T are also closed back and offer wired and wireless ANC options, making them a high-end travel accessory. The new Solitaire T is priced at an RRP of 1300€/$1600/£1200 and they are available from July 2022.
Conradin Amft, T+A’s COO says,
With the Solitaire P and P-SE we succeeded in producing a range of reference headphones, but with the Solitaire T, we set ourselves a new and exciting challenge. We began with the slogan “T+A wherever you are”, and then breathed life into the words.
Project Director Sebastian Kobelt added,
We wanted to combine a great pair of passive headphones with the best electronic components possible.
The Solitaire T feature a 42 mm transducer with a cellulose diaphragm. This diaphragm offers lightweight performance with commensurate stiffness. Inside there is Bluetooth LDAC and aptX codec with a Qualcomm QCC chip. These are paired with an ES9218 Sabre DAC.
Since 1978, T+A has stood for theory and application in the field of audio technology.
