For anyone who is familiair 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-X55 closed 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. We were certainly inspired! Not as much as we were when it came time for a test listen though. Hi-X55 headphones are very impressive.

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-X55 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"
