Professional monitoring headphones
rebimol 12.06.2020
I bought these headphones for isolation and tracking. And to be short they perfectly fit these 2 purposes.

Build quality
Hi-X55 are solid. Very nice combination of metal, plastic and pleather. They are not fancy by any means while they have this truly professional look. Work horses!

Sound
Crisp and clear. Analytical and unforgiving. You won't enjoy most of the music in these. Highs are quite accentuated. Bad mixes sound harsh! The bass is there but it's not as groovy as in Beyerdynamics. The manufacturer describes Hi-X55 as first headphones that have perfect transient attack. This is true. You almost physically feel percussion and plucky sounds - very snappy.

Stereo panorama
These have very wide stereo field like open cans. Very easy to locate instrument panning and sound directions. Great for analysing mixes. Great for gaming too!

Comfort
These headphones are relatively small but they have the right shape to fully cover your ear - your ear doesn't touch the headphones and perfectly sits inside the oval earpad. Due to closed design you have good isolation but it also creates some sort of vacuum between your ears and the caps (because of the pleather pads) which some may find uncomfortable.

Isolation
Isolation is very good! It's quite better than in Beyerdynamic 770.

Cons
It's very relative con but keep in mind you won't enjoy most of the music in these. You will hear harsh highs and resonances in bad mixes which you usually don't hear. These were designed for professional work and not for amusement.

Price / Quality
I think these headphones have a very solid price to performance rating. I highly recommend them!

Everything Austrian Audio Makes is gold

Everything Austrian Audio Makes is gold, I had Beyerdynamic DT770, Austrian audio is much more detailed, isolated and less boxy, and just feels more expensive, probably one of the best headphones on the market.

Great for mixing

It serves its purpose. Helps make a better mix. I feel like I am listening to NS 10’s with more bass.

I use them mostly for tracking and they are comfortable and precise . However they are also wonderfull for checking a mix having an outstanding stereo image separation and great overall balance !

Love mixing on the Hi-X55 for its clarity and precise soundstage. It's a real joy and can work many hours without getting tired.

I made the perfect choice, a modern look and great comfort and lightness even in case of long use. If at Audio-Technique ATH-M50x I added Sonarworks Reference 4 to get closer to the dream-Flat, at Austrian there is no need .. They are ideal in mixing and mastering especially in the management of medium frequencies ... A fine rendering of all excesses and mistakes of EQ .... I warmly recommend them to the very demanding sound shades .... Pro on all levels! High quality fully justifies the price!

A great bang for buck from Austrian Audio
VOBOSHI 15.04.2020
I had my eye on these for months and was on the first shipment of Thomann stock, and I have to say they've been worth the wait!

To keep it short, you get more than what you pay. It's a solid headphone, all metal construction, extremely soft cushions, with a in-your-face sound that closely follows the HD600.

Massive thanks to Thomann for going above and beyond with every single one of my orders. Lightning-quick customer support and shipping make me come back again and again!

Mukavat ja laadukkaat
Mik-303 10.09.2020
Kiinassa valmistetut AKG kuulokkeeni menivät rikki ja päätin hommata jotain tilalle joka kestäisi käyttöä paremmin. Otin pienen riskin kun näistä ei löytynyt pahemmin arvosteluja ja voin sanoa että riskinotto kyllä kannatti. Hi-X55 kuulokkeet ovat omaan makuuni todella tyylikkään näköiset ja ne on valmistettu Itävallassa laadukkaista materiaaleista. Sanka on metallia ja pehmusteet ja johto ovat kaikki vaihdettavista. Soundia on aina vaikea kuvailla sanallisesti mutta yritän silti. Ääni on yksinkertaisesti erittäin selkeä ja suljetuiksi kuulokkeiksinämä kuulostavat ihmeellisen avoimilta. Välillä unohdan että minulla on kuulokkeet päässä vaikka olen käyttänyt näitä 12 tuntiakin putkeen. Olen herkkäihoinen ja sen lisäksi kalju, jos kuulokkeet aiheuttavat minkäänlaista epämukavuutta niin tunnen sen nahoissani nopeasti. Nämä ovat todella mukavat päässä. Sen lisäksi että korkeiden äänien toisto on todella selkeää niin ne eivät silti raasta korvia. Basso kuulostaa tiukalta mutta lisään sitä silti vähän alapään hyllyllä mätsäämään omaa makua. Hävettää tunnustaa tämä mutta olen vahingossa istunut näiden kuulokkeiden päälle useamman kerran ja ne eivät ole olleet moksiskaan siitä. Jos etsit laadukkaita kuulokkeita jotka kestävät kovaa käyttöä ja ovat mukavia pitää päässä voin suositella näitä lämpimästi.

All I wanted is headphones to look inside the "detail"
ProteuS404 13.02.2021
All I wanted is headphones to look inside the "detail", while creating Audio Assets as an Audio Designer and I can say Austrian Audio Hi-X55 is a good "Tool" to have.
Pros - Solid build with metal and high quality plastic.
- Wide Balanced Audio Spectrum
- The speed on this headphones... 10/10
- Because the speed Clarity is to next lvl
- Great Stereo "Visualization"
Cons - A bit enchanced high frequencies but not disorted
