DALI IO6 Premium Wireless Headphones
A project that was 2 years in development, the Danish audiophile speaker manufacturer has released the DALI IO6 premium wireless headphones with noise cancelling. Featuring a class leading 60 hour battery life ( 30 hour battery in ANC mode), the DALI headphones are part of the new DALI lifestyle range which includes the lower priced IO4 headphones and new Katch One wireless soundbar.
A 50mm paper fibre driver delivers that authentic DALI sound, wrapping you in a life like soundstage with depth and detail. We can't say enough about the comfort, the tension is perfect and they simply disappear on your head even after long periods of listening. The flexible headband is sturdy and more durable than competing wireless headphone brands. Available replacement ear pads ensure a longer life cycle than "disposables" and will keep your DALI IO6 headphones playing for years to come with proper care. The travel case and included cables (mini to mini, USB) and flight adapter are a nice touch for those who travel.
Three modes for noise cancellation; on, off, and transparent let you select the setting that's right for any particular listening environment. Transparent mode does a superb job of blocking background noise while still allowing you to here voices. Ideal for listening at home, office or any situation where hearing someone else speak may be important.
Premium materials have been used throughout and the quality is easy to see, feel and hear on these luxury wireless headphones. The buttons select with a solid "click" that is easy to feel on your finger and a better solution to touch sensitive controls which can inadvertently move up or down by brushing against something.
Do yourself a favour and listen to the Bjørn Berge recording "One kind of favour" from his St. Slide album (we listened on Tidal) for a great example of what these headphones are capable of. It's hard to believe we are listening to DALI's first headphone and sincerely wonder where DALI goes from here...the future is bright indeed.
