From the classy design, innovative technology, and high-end materials, it’s obvious that these Hi-X55 headphones are built to last.
The Hi-X55 is an excellent foray into the headphone market by Austrian Au-dio. The comfort and build quality are top-notch, and the sound is tight through-out the spectrum with a very detailed upper midrange.
In terms of signal dynamics, these headphones really make a big splash. Especially the low-frequency transients, which are reproduced with a lot of punch and thrust.
The same classy pedigree and thoughtful design that went into Austrian Audio's OC mics is apparent in their first headphones too.
Sound On Sound
Austrian Audio has created a superb set of headphones in the Hi-X55s. Their sound-for-pound cannot be faulted and, in many respects, especially with regard to the capacious soundstage, they outperform some more costly designs.
In Sachen Signaldynamik machen diese Headphones ordentlich Dampf. Insbesondere tieffrequente Transienten bilden sie druckvoll und mit viel Schub gekonnt ab. Auch die akustische Isolation nach außen und die Dämpfung von Außengeräuschen sind den Entwicklern gelungen.
Mit dem Over-Ear-Kopfhörer Austrian Audio Hi-X55 liegt ein eindrucksvolles Debüt vor, das in vielen Punkten Bestnoten einheimsen kann.
Aus meiner Sicht ist er einer der besten Kopfhörer für einen Preis von unter 300€ und das sogar, ohne dass auf audiophile Ansprüche verwiesen und ohne, dass er mit Superlativen beworben wird. Ein Studio-Kopfhörer, der gekonnt in die akustische Trickkiste greift und keine Details vermissen lässt…
High Excursion Technology
Hi-X Professional Headphones
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.
