Now available as an open back design, the Austrian Audio Hi-X65 sets the standard for its class.

Highly reviewed startup with Professional heritage
Manufactured in Austria, Austria Audio is a new company with a highly experienced team behind it. Their first two headphones have already received a rapturous response, with 5-star reviews from customers and the press alike.

Powerful magnetic force
Just like the other award-winning models, the Hi-X65 features a powerful new magnetic design, with class-leading magnetic force. Combine this with high excursion driver technology and you get lightning fast dynamics and punchy, musical sound.

Open back for a natural and transparent sound
Featuring an open back design, these headphones deliver a spacious ‘out of head’ soundstage. The spacious sound gives enhanced instrument separation, letting you focus on individual musicians within the mix.

Comfort, over ear fit
Designed to fit around your ears, the deeply padded earcups provide ling-lasting comfort. The broad headband uses double-padded bands and articulated adjustment for superior comfort.

Durable and fold-flat for a life on the move
With metal parts used in all critical areas, the Hi-X65 headphones are designed for durability. The earpads also fold flat, making them easy to store and carry with you.

Supplied with long and short cables
Whether you’re using the headphones at home/studio or on the move, there’s a cable to suit. For use at home or in the studio, use the 3 metre cable with the supplied 6.35mm convertor. On the move, the 1.2m cable with 3.5mm plug is less cumbersome. Changing between the cables is as simple as plugging in the cable itself.

Hear deep into the music, with the Austrian Audio Hi-X65.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Revealing revelation Had these for a week now and they really do deliver the sonic experience I was after. Online reviews suggest these are useful for monitoring in producing music as they clearly present what is present and add and subtract nothing. My use is solely for listening, be that CD, internet radio, high resolution streaming, vinyl or audio books. My main system consists of Exposure pre and Power amps, Dynaudio Contour speakers, Chord Qutest DAC, Audiolab CD transport, Linn LP12 with Naim Aro and Audiotechnica OC9 moving coil cartridge and Audiolab streamer all connected with QED reference or Chord Shawline interconnects. Headphone stage is via an Arcam rHead amp which had been driving 600 ohm AKG K240 Sextett headphones that are approaching 40 years old now. These Austrian audio Hi-X65 headphones portray music and spoken word so well I am happy to use them instead of the speaker output, the overall sound is indistinguishable from my main HiFi set up I find that almost unbelievable. Compared to my AKG phones these have a more detailed and transparent treble and a far better controlled and believable bass. Only in width of the soundstage do the AKG have an advantage over the Austrian Audio though not to detract from what is still an impressive soundstage. Build quality is excellent with metal being used for the main frame and hinges, replaceable headband and earcups together with a choice of lockable cables with screw on 6.35mm adaptor to the standard 3.5mm plug. Comfort with and without glasses is of the highest order.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The open back headphones is an upgrade These headphones are hi spec , sound good . People say there is to much base which put me in doubt of buying , base just right . I have a Marantz cd player with headphone socket and volume control also Marantz Amp with headphone socket . So I have different sound on each . Sharper sound from cd socket but from the amp socket you have more smooth power . The build of the headphones is sturdy ,comfort zone ,also you have a short and a long lead with a screw in plug for a more secure fit . I am happy with my purchase .
