Making Passion Heard

Austrian Audio has extended its highly-successful Hi-X6 headphone range with the addition of the Hi-X60 model -a professional reference headphone for recording and FOH applications.

Featuring the sonic signature of the Hi-X6 series, with its natural and spacious sound, the 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).

In the studio the Hi-X60’s closed-back isolation prevents sound from escaping out into the recording environment and interfering with the microphone capture. At FOH the high passive-noise suppression ensures an optimum signal-to-noise ratio creating an accurate and hearing-friendly sonic environment. For instrument or vocal tracking both features work together to provide the artist with a coherent, healthy signal without leakage.

The Hi-X60 offers remarkable comfort even for long sessions, leaving the user fatigue-free and able to focus on workflow. All touch points are made from soft, durable memory-foam. The ear pads feature the acclaimed Hi-X design with plenty of internal space and smaller external size. The ear pads can be replaced with ease. In additionthe headband has a smart cut-out to relieve pressure on the head.

Made in Vienna. Again.

„With the Hi-X60 closed back Headphones, Austrian Audio have hit a home run. The 44mm high excursion drivers provide a well-balanced and very detailed sound, perfect for the studio.“
Optisch mit den roten Ausrufezeichen ein klein wenig mutiger, sehr gut verarbeitet und mit einem hohen Tragekomfort ist er dank seiner fast schon schonungslosen Neutralität ein willkommener Helfer bei der Suche nach dem richtigen Mix – und das auch in etwas lauterer Umgebung.
Austrian Audio knows what they’re doing when they made this product. These are recommendable for professionals and audiophiles alike.
Der Austrian Audio Hi-X60 ist ein durch und durch hochwertiger Kopfhörer, mit exzellentem, weil detailreichem Sound. Wer den offenen Austrian Audio Hi-X65 liebt, wird mit dem geschlossenen Hi-X60 ebenfalls Freundschaft schließen. Der Kopfhörer eignet sich hervorragend für das kritische Hören beim Monitoring im Tonstudio, aber ebenso gut für ungestörten HiFi-Genuss.
Und schon wieder hat Austrian Audio ein fantastisches Produkt entwickelt. Mit dem neuen Hi-X60 hat man es geschafft, den Sound des X65 weitgehend in einen geschlossenen Kopfhörer zu transferieren. Mehr noch: Der X60 gefällt mir sogar noch einen Hauch besser.
Austrian Audio ist ein fantastisches Profi-Tool mit universellem Anwendungsradius gelungen, das für jegliche Studioanwendungen wie auch den privaten Musikkonsum bestens geeignet ist. Fazit: Uneingeschränkt empfehlenswert!

High Excursion Technology

Hi-Xcursion (High Excursion) technology is the key to the astonishing sound of our Hi-X60 headphones.

All Austrian Audio Hi-X headphones feature a 44 mm driver and a ring magnet system. This design allows for improved airflow and includes the strongest magnetic field in its class.
The ring magnet, combined with a copper-clad aluminum voice coil, reduces the weight of the membrane and the voice coil connected to it, allowing the membrane to move or change direction faster, providing a more responsive impulse reaction.

Our science, measurements, and listening tests have shown that 44mm is the optimum size for this design. It ensures professional performance in the Hi-X, moves a lot of air, and eliminates ‘wobbling’ of the diaphragm. This is akin to damping of the driver mass, which is where our membrane really shows results: it is ultra-stiff while still reducing unwanted resonance.
