The materials and finishes are from the racing team: instead of a zip-like case, like the first generation of headphones, the design is made with carbon fiber and inserts of the company’s orange color. The case itself received a wireless charging module (with a charging station) and a larger battery: it will be able to fully charge the headphones four times, and in general, the T5 II will work on a single charge for up to 8 hours.
The headphone and the case appeared dust and water resistance IP67 rated (plus advanced moisture, thanks to which the headphones will not fall out of sweaty ears), and a set of ear cushions significantly expanded: it now includes six pairs of proprietary silicon tips, and Comply foam pair, plus three pairs of custom spacers. The set also includes a commemorative metal card with the serial number of the headphones and the date of their production, as well as a brochure.
In the T5 II replaced the antenna and promised that now the signal will not be torn. The headphones are connected to sources via Bluetooth 5.0 Protocol and support aptX and AAC codecs. At the same time, the headphone cases were made about a quarter smaller and the sound volume was shortened. And added a transparency mode that lets you listen to the sounds of the outside world in your headphones.
In addition to the McLaren Edition, the headphones will also come in Sport and classic versions. The sports version differs from the racing version in color and the lack of a Mat for wireless charging, but the classic version does not have internal struts and foam nozzles, plus the case is almost the same as the T5, only thinner: it has no wireless charging, no water and dust protection.
