Review: JVC XP-EXT1
Home cinema with surround sound right in the ears
JVC XP-EXT1 are the first wireless headphones we've heard with lossless transmission and decoding of real Dolby Atmos and DTS: X. And it works!
Huge soundstage, good impression of surround sound. Good sound on film, and engaging sound in stereo.
Big difference in sound level between stereo and surround, where surround sound is too low. We want 3-6 dB higher maximum level in surround mode. eARC is not without flaws. HDMI in does not support Dolby Vision.
