”Yet again, the Hi-X15 are the best affordable wired headphones for home use.” ’What Hi-Fi?’ 2023 award-winner.

High Excursion Technology for superior sound

High Excursion Technology is key to the Austrian Audio Hi-X15’s award-winning sound quality. Featuring a 44mm driver, with ring magnet system, the drivers are both magnetically powerful and lightweight. This means you get a punchy sound with a strong, but not wallowing, bass response. Powerful sound with low distortion – these headphones hit the Holy Grail.

Closed back design for excellent isolation
With closed back construction and snug fitting earpads, these headphones offer a high degree of passive noise isolation. If you’re on the move or in a busy office or home environment, you’ll appreciate the quieter perspective these headphones bring – letting you focus on your music.

Durable construction
Constructed from durable materials, the Hi-X15 headphones take life-on-the-go in their stride. Metal hinges provide durable and long-lasting joints. A carry pouch is supplied for further protection, when not in use.

Comfortable fit
The soft, slow retention memory foam ear pads comfortably envelope your ears. The headband is designed to provide just the right amount of pressure on your head – enough to keep the headphones firmly in place but not enough to become painful.

Foldable for on-the-go versatility
Foldable construction makes these headphones easier to carry and store. They also have a removable cable – making cable replacement an easy plug-in task. For music at home or the studio, they’re provided with a 6.35mm adaptor plug.

Enjoy award-winning Austrian Audio sound, for less, with the Hi-X15.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing for the price These still need breaking in but the do sound like a pair I had for twice as much. Mostly though want to thank the staff. I was stuck in roadworks and arrived just after closing was still welcomed in to make my purchase. The online reviews for the headphones are amazing. Can’t wait to properly break them in.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It's nothing special, but it does the job. They're comfortable for long periods of time, and build quality seems sturdy. But the sound quality... if you're listening to a lot of acoustic stuff: classical, easy rock, vocals, something that's not heavy on bass or too complex then it's alright. They're very quiet on their own though. Music sounds flat coming out of them, dull across all the levels. Plugging them into my amplifier I was shocked at how much I had to increase the volume to actually produce a decent level of sound from them. And I found myself still having to play around with the bass and treble when listening across different genres, like it feels like it's not delivering the sound properly. They will produce a decent sound, but if you want to get the best out of them you really need an amplifier with an audio mixer. I've install one on my computer as well -- simple as. But, I will say for the price you're getting a pretty reasonable package.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great advice on options and brilliant headphones Staff at the Maidstone store carefully guided me through the various options that would meet my requirements ie. closed back phones for studio monitoring. The Austrian Audio Hi-15 that I bought are perfect for the job. Thanks Richer Sounds Maidstone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Almost returned them, but so glad I didn't The begin with the sound was awful: the treble was so harsh and almost painful that I could barely listen to anything. However, as other reviewers said to allow them to settle, I did. Boy what a difference! They are warm, controlled (even at high volume), spacious and just let the music flow. Voices like the Cranberries' Dolores O'roirdan are achingly good and electronic acts like the Chemical Brothers are engaging and immersive. Music I know well is spine tingling, again. Yes, the bass is a little light, but i'd far rather the clarity and immediacy than listen to music through "megabass".
