Building on the High Excursion driver technology present in Austrian Audio’s multi-award winning Hi-X50, Hi-X55 and Hi-X65 headphones, comes a new addition to the company’s growing hardware portfolio: The Hi-X15. These new closed-back headphones are bringing Austrian Audio’s precise listening experience into the world with a minimal price tag.
The development of Hi-X (High Excursion) technology was the result of mixing state-of-the-art engineering with decades of Pro Audio manufacturing experience. By reducing all moving mass, Hi-X headphones offer impressive dynamic characteristics and an extremely fast transient response. This allows headphones like the Hi-X15 the ability to deliver distortion-free audio reproduction down to the lowest frequencies- creating an impressive linear bass response that’s perfectly accurate, with no exaggeration.
The Hi-X15 is Austrian Audio’s first budget workhorse design, offering all of the sonic advantages of their High Excursion technology, in a system aimed at bridging professional and everyday use. They are perfect for the studio, stage, rehearsal room, on tour, or practicing at home. Thanks to their 25-ohm impedance, the Hi-X15 always deliver the greatest achievable sonic performance per scenario- whether you’re listening through a reference A/D converter, high-end headphone amplifier, analogue mixer, laptop or mobile.
The smart folding design of the Hi-X15 means they are easy to store, and their durable all-metal hinge and bow make them extremely robust. The headphones are designed to fit comfortably, even after many hours of use, thanks to replaceable soft memory foam ear pads and headband.
With a high-quality feature set, combined with a peerless quality/price ratio, Austrian Audio’s Hi-X series continues to impress, as the Hi-X15 now make their way to customers throughout Australia.
