About this deal

Respect to the few companies that try their best whilst maintaining a balance or prefer not to adopt certain things. The design actually offers a fair amount of passive noise isolation, even when the active cancellation is toggled off.

As we play I Don’t Know But I Gotta Go, Bobby’s trademark weeping electric guitar takes centre stage with pinpoint tonal accuracy. The battery level is also indicated visually by two multi-colour LED indicators on the right ear cup. That’s never a concern with the IO; the large silver disc on the right earcup is actually a large button that serves to control both volume and playback.For some of you who know this track very well, there is this hi hat sound way back in the mix which panned slightly to the left. There’s only one gripe we have with these headphones, but it is significant and does affect the overall sonic performance. Along with reducing the annoyance of external noise, noise cancelling improves the audibility of music detail, meaning you can listen at lower volume – reducing the potential of long term hearing damage. I havnt tried these wired yet music wise other than for gaming/watching video but has been positive so far. Before I go into it, I have a background in Audio - a music technology degree, experience working in some studio's, composing music and also play a variety of instruments.

He is not the kind of 'detail' that walks in the room and suddenly starts boasting about what he can do and wants to be the centre of attention. On the left ear cup, you’ll get an aux port, while on the right ear cup is where you’ll get the rest of the controls. In Yello’s “Pan Blue”, the electronic sounds move impressively across the entire frequency spectrum, with the layers of the various instruments being clearly delineated and the panning effects whirling precisely around your ears. Once we have fully tested the item and confirmed the fault, we will process the refund or exchange including cost of carriage back to us (within reason). The earcups each swivel through 180 degrees, which makes the Dalis easy and comfortable to sling around your neck or pack into their (fairly large) grey travel-case.The headphones have good noise cancellation and class-leading battery life, and have provided their music with a new lease of life. The DALI IO ear pads are made from memory foam that shapes to the head for maximum comfort and fit - creating the best possible seal. The upper and lower part of the ear cup outer ring, which surrounds the logo plate, control Volume Up and Down respectively.

The sound tuning is neutral so that you needn’t fear heavy bass adventures or highly embellished loudness curves. This should be more than enough for even the longes of long-haul travel, and for weeks of use under normal use. In combination with the similarly finely resolved trebles, this results in wonderful presence in the form of a remarkably fast and open sound image, which is by no means typical with closed systems.This works quite well with appealing results, even if the noise of the circuitry somewhat clouds the impression when music playback is switched off. hours charging time the battery life has a useful maximum of 30 hours (depending on levels and the use of the noise reduction). You can see the IO-6 runs right between the Sony and Focal in bass quantity, matching my listening impressions and my preferences. Every time we get a premium pair of wireless noise-cancellers to review (and they just keep on coming, most recently from Sennhesier), we observe that you’re spoiled for choice. The same applies to the dynamic reproduction found in good jazz recordings (in this case Esbjörn Svensson Trio).

A particularly long battery life ensures the freedom of not having to constantly worry about the power supply running out soon when traveling or in everyday life. They mention that the sound is fantastic, the depth of music revealing stands out and that the volume is impressive.The goal is to produce the most natural and authentic sound possible, reproducing music exactly as the artist intended. If you’re looking for an ultra premium option, and don’t mind not having the best noise cancellation out there, then these are well worth the cost. The IO's large class-leading custom 50 mm paper fibre driver creates the most natural, transparent and authentic DALI sound - with low distortion and colouration - while reproducing music exactly as the artist intended.
