While at the 2020 Winter NAMM Show in January, Making Music spent a few minutes with Philipp Schuster, product manager for Austrian Audio, who told us all about the company’s newest releases: The Hi-X (High Excursion) headphones, comprised of the on-ear HI-X50 and over-ear HI-X55, and their new large diaphragm microphones, the OC818 and OC18.
The on-ear, supra-aural HI-X50 headphones are specifically designed for those requiring a portable and compact option, whereas the HI-X55 circum-aurals provide over-the-ear comfort. Both feature Austrian Audio’s exclusive 44mm HI-X driver.
The OC818 microphone, handmade in Vienna, is a multi-pattern dual-output condenser microphone equipped with a world-first: optional wireless control, while its sibling, the OC18, is a cardioid pattern precision microphone.
