For anyone who is familiar with the Austrian Audio story, you’ll already know there is some serious heritage packed in the knowledge base of their design and engineering team.

Hi-X50 on-ear headphones are not a ‘nod to the past’ however. Austrian Audio has stepped up and designed a headphone for now and beyond.

Have a quick peep at the video tab for some can’t-be-bothered-reading inspiration. Hi-X50 headphones are very impressive, and especially comfortable if you prefer the on-ear style of monitoring – rather than the ‘around the ear’ style found with the Hi-X55.

Here are some words from Austrian Audio:

“Developed from scratch, the all new 44mm Hi-X driver features a ring magnet system. It allows improved air-flow and the strongest magnetic field in its class. This ring magnet structure coupled with a copper-clad aluminum voice coil reduces the weight of the membrane and voice coil that sits on it allowing it to move or change direction faster providing a better impulse reaction, highly desired for contemporary as well as traditional music production”

“Engineered and manufactured in Austria, Hi-X50 is tailored to suit the demanding production conditions of today. With the all-digital signal chain, using 24bit or even 32bit, the dynamic depth of contemporary source tracks puts engineer and material at the mixing desk to the test”

Frequency range: 5 Hz – 28 kHz
Sensitivity: 118dBspl/V
THD (@ 1kHz): < 0.1%
Impedance: 25 Ω
Input Power: 150 mW
Cable (detachable): 3m
Connector: 3.5mm (1/8”)
Adapter (included): 3.5mm to 6.3mm (1/8” to 1/4″)
Dimensions: 190 x 170 x 70 mm
Weight (without cable): 285g


“It rejects off-axis sounds brilliantly, so there’s no danger of other drums or instruments bleeding into the kick drum recordings. This saves a lot of time and effort during the EQ stage of the mixing process.”

Darren, Head of Technical Sales
