DALI IO

With DALI's 35+ years of experience in creating high quality loudspeakers, we decided to use our passion and expertise to create the wireless DALI IO-6 - dedicated to today’s music lovers.

With our passion for music reproduction, we were convinced that we could do with headphones what we have done with speakers; provide a better sounding product that delivers music experiences superior to the established competition.

Headphones are essentially a pair of small loudspeakers mounted on your head. They are your personal set of portable hi-fi speakers that enable you to take that authentic DALI sound with you wherever you go.

The DALI IO-6 with Active Noise Cancellation are intended to be the perfect travel companion for those ‘on the go’ situations.

AUTHENTIC SOUND

With DALI IO headphones, users benefit from more than 35 years of experience designing some of the finest hi-fi loudspeakers in the world. The DALI IO-6 is designed and engineered by the same team and to the same basic principles as any other DALI loudspeaker. The aim is to create the most natural and authentic sound possible - and to reproduce music exactly as intended by the artist.

Being a loudspeaker company, we fully understand the importance of a high performance driver. It was a big surprise for us to discover that within the headphone industry, drivers are often considered as cheap commodity components, with no real engineering attention paid to them.

The DALI IO-6 headphones utilise a high quality custom designed driver with a large 50 mm diaphragm and an optimised neodymium magnet system to achieve low distortion, minimal colouration and accurate dynamics throughout the entire frequency range.

The large diameter driver ensures linear operation with minimum compression. This, together with the well controlled breakups of the paper fibre cone diaphragm means that even the most minute music details stand out crystal clear. It also means that the sound never gets tiring, even after hours of listening.

NOISE CANCELLATION

The DALI IO-6 is a closed-back unit, designed to provide a high level of natural passive noise isolation (PNI). However, low frequency noise cannot be removed passively, which is why the DALI IO-6 employs the latest ANC technology to remove background noise.

The DALI IO-6 offers three different ANC modes that enable you to choose how much of the surrounding noise, you want to cancel out: ANC ON, ANC OFF and Transparency mode.

When ANC is activated, the IO-6 actively cancels low frequency noise - eg. in the shape of a repeating and rhythmic deep background rumble. Be it in the office, on an airplane, bus or train or when mowing the lawn.

When ANC is deactivated, you will still experience a high degree of isolation due to the sealed closure of the soft ear pads - providing a natural PNI.

The third mode, Transparency, bypasses the Passive Noise Isolation (PNI) by feeding external ambient audio into the headphone audio. The headphones effectively become one-way (out to in) acoustically transparent.

Removing the background noise helps you to relax and enjoy your favourite music whether it be at home or on the go. 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.

You can easily toggle between the three ANC modes with a dedicated button placed conventionally on the rim of the right ear cup - making it easy to acces even with gloves.
