Austrian Audio HI-X55

 

The All-Metal Hinges Are As Sturdy As They Get. But Their Heroic Construction Isn’t Half As Impressive As The Sound Of The Hi-X55’s Proprietary High-Excursion Drivers. These Full-Frequency Drivers Clearly Reproduce Frequencies Well Beyond The Range Of Human Hearing — From 5Hz Up To 28khz. Finally, The Soft Slow-Retention Memory Foam Earpads Practically Disappear After Just A Minute. And With Their Foldable Construction And Detachable Cable, Your Austrian Audio Hi-X55 Headphones Are Ready To Go Wherever You Are.

 

Proprietary High-Excursion Drivers For Mixes That Translate

Designed For Modern Music Production, Austrian Audio's Line Of Professional Hi-X (High Excursion) Headphones Do Not Use OEM Drivers, As Many Headphones On The Market Do. The Proprietary High-Excursion Drivers In The Hi-X55 Are Custom Designed And Purpose Built For The Hi-X Range To Yield Superior Performance In The Context Of A Cohesive Sound-Delivery System. This Meticulous Engineering Results In What-You-Hear-Is-What-You-Get Fidelity That You Can Trust To Make Critical Decisions About Your Recordings.

 

Outstanding Comfort Over Long Sessions

The Hi-X55 Is Notable For What You Don’t Get: Discomfort. Austrian Audio Used Soft, Slow-Retention Memory Foam For The Earpads To Give You Cushy Comfort, Even During Long Listening Sessions. And Because They Effectively Banished Distortion From The Design, You Can Monitor Through The Night Without A Hint Of Listening Fatigue. Music Experience PSA: Of Course, Intensive Concentration For Hours On End Is Counterproductive In The Long Run. Just Because You Can Work For 10 Hours Straight Doesn’t Mean You Should, So By All Means, Take Breaks — And Do Watch Those Listening Levels!

Introducing The New Professional Hi-X (High Excursion) Headphones From Austrian Audio.

Whether You Choose The Hi-X50 Or Hi-X55, Know That You Are Getting “Made In Austria” Quality From A Team That Stands Behind This All-New Design. You Won’t Find Off The Shelf Drivers And Key Components Here – Everything Is Crafted By Austrian Audio Right Here In Austria.

 

High Excursion Technology

Hi-Xcursion (High Excursion) Technology Is The Key To The Astonishing Sound Of Our Hi-X55 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.
