Austrian Audio Launch Hi-X15 & Hi-X25BT Headphones

Two brand new closed-back headphones are being released from the Vienna based manufacturer. With the Hi-X15 and X25, you’ll be able to experience high excursion technology at an affordable price. These headphones are the workhorses of the award-winning Austrian Audio Hi-X series, bringing the crystal-clear listening experience of High Excursion technology to everyday use. They’re perfect for studio, stage, rehearsal room, on tour, or practicing at home.

HI-X Technology

The Hi-X15 and the Hi-X25BT headphones use the award-winning drivers of the Hi-X series. The development of Hi-X (High Excursion) technology is the result of decades of experience and state-of-the-art engineering. By reducing all moving mass, Hi-X15 headphones offer impressive dynamic characteristics and an extremely fast response. The 44 mm Hi-X driver, with its vivid transients, reveals every sonic shade.

Distortion-free reproduction down to the lowest frequencies allows for a linear and impressive natural reproduction of the low bass that’s accurate, not exaggerated. Thanks to their 25-ohm impedance, Hi-X headphones always deliver the greatest possible performance, whether you’re listening through a high-end headphone amplifier, reference AD-converter, analogue mixer, keyboard, mobile player, or laptop. You’ll always have the clear and precise sound you need to make important decisions about your work.
