Austrian Audio has extended its Hi-X6 headphone range with the release of the Hi-X60 professional closed-back reference headphones, intended for recording, front-of-house, mixing and mastering.

Austrian Audio Hi-X60Sharing the sonic signature of the Hi-X6 series, the Hi-X60 over-ear, closed-back design is suited to use in noisy environments such as at FOH, where the high passive-noise suppression provides a high signal-to-noise ratio for an clear and hearing-friendly sonic environment. In the studio, the Hi-X60’s closed-back isolation prevents sound from leaking into the recording environment and interfering with microphone capture. For instrument or vocal tracking, both features work together to provide the artist with a coherent, healthy signal without leakage.

Hi-Xcursion (High Excursion) technology is the key to the design of the Hi-X60 headphones – with a 44mm driver and a ring magnet system, the design allows improved airflow and includes the strongest magnetic field in its class. The ring magnet, combined with a copper-clad aluminium 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.

As with other Austrian Audio headphones, the Hi-X60 offers promises comfort even during long sessions. All touch points are made from soft, durable memory-foam. Additionally, all load-bearing and moving parts are made from metal, ensuring stability, reliability and robustness. This rugged design ensures that the fold mechanism is good for years of everyday use, and the roughest recording conditions.

Key features:

  • Slow retention memory foam earpads.
  • Replaceable ear pads and bow pad.
  • Detachable cable that can be easily replaced.
  • Metal hinges and bow for durability and stability.
  • Foldable construction for easy storage.

Pricing for the Hi-X60 is US$419; £319 UK RRP (inc VAT); and €349 (incl. VAT) RRP in Europe.
