Austrian Audio Hi-X60 Over-Ear Closed-Back Headphones

Closed-back, over-ear headphones with high-excursion 44mm drivers ensuring an absolutely clear sound image revealing every nuance and detail

MFR# 18003F10900

Product Description

Austrian Audio has extended its highly-successful Hi-X6 headphone range with the addition of the Hi-X60 model - a professional headphone for recording, mixing and mastering. Featuring the sonic signature of the Hi-X6 series, with its natural and spacious sound, the Austrian Audio Hi-X60 over-ear, closed-back design is ideally-suited for use in loud environments, for example, in the studio or front-of-house (FOH).

The Hi-X60 is manufactured in Vienna, Austria, utilizing the very best design and craftsmanship. The isolation of the closed over-ear design in combination with the high-excursion driver ensures an absolutely clear sound image revealing every nuance and detail - sonic characteristics appreciated by artists, audio engineers and audiophiles alike.

The closed-back design prevents sound from escaping and provides isolation from external noise. In use these features prevent the headphone sound bleeding into the recording microphone; also, the passive noise suppression improves the signal-to-noise ratio requiring less level and therefore a healthier listening environment for the user. A distinct sonic image within safe listening-levels. Innovation from tradition.

Austrian Audio's state-of-the-art Hi-X technology comes from decades of experience in pro audio research and development. By reducing all moving mass, the Hi-X60 offers impressive dynamic characteristics and a fast response. The 44mm Hi-X driver, with its lively transients and linear frequency response, reveals every sonic shade and timbre. Distortion-free reproduction down to the lowest frequencies enables a linear and natural expression of the low bass without hype. Important workflow decisions can be made with confidence in the precision and translation to other audio systems. For your art, the sound of science Made in Austria.

Space and time

The Hi-X60's large, open soundstage is more akin to open-back headphones than closed-back and this is partly-achieved by the ear cup design which is spacious inside whilst having a relatively small external dimension.

The soft, memory foam ear cushions are a re-think of older designs; the acoustic wall that closes off the earcup is doubled so as little sound as possible can escape into the environment or enter the internal soundstage from outside. The memory foam padding of the headband has a clever cut-out for the head seam and this radically reduces the contact pressure. In practice, the remarkable comfort and optimal fit enable fatigue-free workflow even during time-intensive audio projects.

Independence

Studio work is often done across different venues and not tied to one location or single equipment. Austrian Audio have incorporated this realization into the core design of the Hi-X60 ensuring flexibility for consistent performance across work or leisure environments. The folding design and load-bearing components are all metal for robustness and stability. A light, high-quality carry-bag protects and assists portability.

Sonically the Hi-X60 works with a wide range of players. From high-end headphone amplifiers, reference AD converters, studio interfaces, analogue mixers, mobile players to laptops; the impedance of 25 ohms ensures that appropriate power and ample reserve is always available.

Longevity

Audio editing requires commitment and passion. Countless decisions and emotional-intelligence lead to success. The confidence gained using the Hi-X60 leads to consistency over time. The earpiece and ear pads, i.e. all hygienic components, can be replaced and renewed with ease, just like the pluggable cable. This means that precision, listening pleasure and comfort are maintained for a long time.

Connectedness

Whether a studio session or pure audiophile enjoyment, the Hi-X60 adapts to any situation with the included, easily exchangeable cables. High-quality 1.2 m and 3 m cables are supplied and are matched to the technical specifications of the headphones. The cables remain securely connected to the headphones thanks to the locking mechanism. The standard 3.5 mm gold-plated stereo jack plug ensures maximum compatibility with portable consumer devices.

For connection to professional audio devices, a screw-in adapter from 3.5 mm to 6.3 mm stereo jack is included. Notably the cables do not transmit vibration noise e.g. rubbing on desk or shirt collar, into the soundstage.

FEATURES:

  • Proprietary High Excursion technology that delivers a linear frequency response and open, precise, high-resolution sound that simplifies error detection and makes mixing/mastering and recording a pleasure
  • Metal hinges and bow for maximum durability and stability
  • Best-in-class comfort with soft memory foam earpads and outstanding ventilation to keep you comfortable even during the longest sessions
  • Detachable cable that can be easily replaced (2 included)
  • Replaceable ear pads and bow pad, for long lifetime and hygienic use
  • Foldable construction for easy storage
  • Made in Austria Quality

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.
