‘"…if you want to hear what is truly in a track or recording, you won’t find better analysts at this price. Definitely worth an audition."

The Austrian Audio Hi-X55 headphones match the five-star award of its on-ear counterpart, the Hi-X50, claiming full-marks from What Hi-Fi? in all review categories.

"The Hi-X55 are slightly more expensive than the on-ear Hi-X50. They are beautifully made and certainly present at every penny of that not inconsiderable outlay."

"The Austrian Audio Hi-X55 relay music with tempo and rhythms fully intact, with a tight snappy bass that is in no way overbearing – a fault that some closed-back over-ear headphones could be accused of. James Blake’s Limit To Your Love is a regular test go-to due to the bass that kicks in at intervals through the track, and each bass pulse is clearly rendered, with clean edges to the notes and almost no blurring. It’s an impressive performance."

"We’re impressed with the Austrian Audio Hi-X55. They are nicely built and relay a track faithfully."

"If you’re after a top pair of analytical, professional headphones at this price point, these should head your audition list”.
