Featuring the sonic signature of the Hi-X6 series with its natural and spacious sound, the Hi-X60 over-ear, closed-back design is ideally suited for use in loud environments like front of house (FOH). The high passive-noise suppression ensures an optimum signal-to-noise ratio creating an accurate and hearing-friendly sonic environment. The Hi-X60's closed-back isolation also prevents sound from escaping into the recording environment and interfering with the microphone capture in the studio. Both features work together for instrument or vocal tracking to provide the artist with a coherent, healthy signal without leakage. For audiophile listening, the Hi-X60's give an immersive experience.

Hi-Xcursion (High Excursion) technology is the key to the incredible sound the Hi-X60 headphones deliver. All Austrian Audio Hi-X headphones feature a 44 mm driver and a ring magnet system. This design allows for improved airflow and includes the strongest magnetic field in its class. The ring magnet, combined with a copper-clad aluminium voice coil, reduces the weight of the membrane and the voice coil connected to it, allowing the membrane to move or change direction faster, providing a more responsive impulse reaction. Recording, Mixing and mastering with the Hi-X60 headphones is an absolute pleasure. Expect great bass imaging and outstanding low THD (total harmonic distortion) at low frequencies, together with a linear frequency response and open, precise high-resolution sound that is very revealing and makes error detection easy. The Hi-X60s deliver incredible detail, making them ideal for audiophiles as well as those with studio work in mind.

As with all Austrian Audio headphones, the Hi-X60 offer remarkable comfort even for long sessions. All of the headphone's touchpoints employ soft, durable memory foam. Additionally, all load-bearing and moving parts are made from metal, ensuring stability, reliability, and robustness. This rugged design ensures that the folding mechanism is good for years of everyday use and that the Hi-X60 holds up even under the roughest recording conditions.
