The DALI iO-6 headphones feature the latest Bluetooth 5.0 aptX technology which includes CVC (Clear Voice Communication). Unlike some ANC headphones, the new Dali iO-6 headphones can be used with the active noise cancellation switched on or off, plus there’s a ‘Transparency’ mode that blends external sounds with music playing through the headphones, providing users additional safety for situations such as crossing roads with heavy traffic. All modes can be toggled via the ANC button without disconnecting from other devices or interrupting audio. With ANC operational, Dali claims 30-hours of wireless operation before the batteries require re-charging. The headphones can also be used without any power at all, via a wired connection.
‘Dali designed and engineered the iO-6 in Denmark from the ground up, specifically for music enthusiasts in order to provide extremely high-quality sound reproduction, as well as the durability and comfort required by any headphone user,’ said Richard Neale, General Manager of Amber Technology, which distributes Dali in Australia. ‘The user-interface is extremely intuitive, with a multi-function button elegantly integrated into the logo plate design of the right ear cup, and to support the user experience, voice prompts report the state of operation, connectivity, battery level and Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) mode. The multi-function button controls power on/off, Bluetooth pairing and release, volume up/down, play/pause/skip track and take call.’
The Dali iO-6’s over-ear earpieces use 50mm paper fibre diaphragms. Dali says these have been specifically designed to constrain sound within the earpieces, so nearby users cannot hear conversations or music, and also to ensure passive reduction of external noise. The earpieces use with memory foam to ensure a soft yet snug seal around the ears. The headphone earpieces rotate through 180 degrees so they can be folded flat for compact storage, or hung comfortably around your neck.
The Dali iO-6 headphones, which come with a flight adaptor and a travel/storage case, are available in two colours—Iron Black and Caramel White—and sell for $669 (RRP).
