T+A Elektroakustik has unveiled the Solitaire T, a premium pair of wireless headphones that have 42 mm drivers. Equipped with a Qualcomm QCC 5127 chip, the T+A Solitaire T supports Sony LDAC and Qualcomm aptX HD codecs, but AAC is missing for iOS devices.

T+A Elektroakustik has announced the Solitaire T, a pair of wireless headphones that make the AirPods Max and even the B&O H95 seem affordable in comparison. Specifically, the Solitaire T will sell for £1,200, €1,300 and US$1,600 when they become available in July. Unsurprisingly, T+A Elektroakustik bills the Solitaire T as being an uncompromising pair of wireless headphones.

According to the company, the Solitaire T relies on the Qualcomm QCC 5127 chipset and an Esstech ES9218 Sabre DAC. For some reason, T+A Elektroakustik has not included AAC support, but the Solitaire T utilises the aptX HD and LDAC codecs. As a result, it would seem that the Solitaire T will use the SBC codec when paired to iOS devices.

Regardless, the Solitaire T also has 42 mm drivers, active noise cancellation (ANC), a 3.5 mm connector and a USB Type-C port. Moreover, T+A Elektroakustik builds the Solitaire T with a combination of aluminium, plastic and vegan artificial leather, mirroring other premium wireless headphones like the B&O H95. Thankfully, the Solitaire T has foldable earcups too, unlike the Sony WH-1000XM5.
