• Austrian Audio Hi-X60 closed-back supra-aural headphones

    Austrian Audio has introduced its Hi-X60 headphones, a closed-back version of its open-back Hi-X65 supra-aural studio model, such they can be used for noisy environments such as sound reinforcement applications.

    The headphones are built with the same 44 mm high-excursion drivers as the Hi-X65. According to the brand, they offer a great bass imaging and low distortion at low frequencies, together with a linear frequency response and open, precise high resolution sound that is very revealing and makes error detection easy, especially in the bass. The low moving mass of the drivers means fast and accurate transient response, while reducing unwanted resonances, according to the manufacturer, who also claims that they offer a high degree of passive noise suppression.

    The contact points use soft memory foam and a headband designed to relieve pressure on the head to provide comfort for prolonged sessions. The frame uses all-metal construction for durability. The headphones are foldable and come with two detachable cables, 3m and 1.2m in length.
