”Austrian Audio’s range-topping Hi-X65 are strong performers for the money, delivering a fine combination of insight, sturdy build and comfort.” ’What Hi-Fi?’ – 5 Star review.

Highly reviewed startup with Professional heritage

Manufactured in Austria, Austria Audio is a new company with a highly experienced team behind it. Their first range of 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 long-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 Excellent headphones Bought these ten days ago and still very happy with them. Comfortable on the headband and ears for hours, light enough, while the metal fittings feel they’ll last (and they collapse for transport). Perfect for me they pack a 1m and 3m cable. Although I’m on the fence about the twist-locking mechanism into the headphone (no complaints, mind). As these are my first open-back headphones I can’t compare them to others, nevertheless they sound on par with other expensive headphones I’ve experienced (plugged in a Marantz CD player or iPad all the same). Along with an interesting company history I can’t see me parting with these for many years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from As good as the hype! I research before any purchase always have and I did tons of research on which montior speakers to get...then bought these. Why, I am not professional and want these for home music production as a hoby. As such I dont have an acoustically awesome room or corner of a room I use, so headphones seemed the right choice. I wanted something that would give me that clean unaffected sound so I could hear what I was creating. Compared to the gaming headphones I was using these just make everything sound right. No additional bass gain or any other artificial sounds that distort what is coming from the DAW. If I make crap it sounds crap, if I tweak it and compress it and whatever, then I hear those changes for good or bad. AWESOME BUY THEM

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great customer experience I was interested in Hi-Fi in my teens but having retired recently I was daunted to make a purchase due to changing technology and the wide choices. Simon from the Glasgow store was great explaining the choices with a not pushy sales technique and ensured I got value for money to suit my needs. Highly recommend this store

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good sound, great build, great comfort I've had these headphones for about a week now, as soon as I got them out if the box I could tell the build was very solid, I've been wearing them for hours on end and have had no issues with comfort either. Sound quality is very good to my ears and seems to be getting better, either by the pads settling or my ears adjusting to the sound. Pretty happy with them overall

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 .
