The DALI IO-6 headphones with Active Noise Cancellation are designed for maximum comfort with a durable design and a natural, transparent sound performance. Featuring a best-in-class 30 hour battery life. Designed and developed from the bottom up in Dali headquarters in Denmark.

AUTHENTIC DALI SOUND
The DALI IO's are designed and developed in Denmark - build on custom solutions by DALI. And this makes all the difference! 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.

COMFORT & DURABILITY
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 pads are covered in soft synthetic leather, chosen for both comfort and durability, and tested to meet real life challenges.

BATTERY LIFE
The IO-6 provides a best-in-class 30 hour battery life, which lets you go for days without charging. Should you run out of power, the IO-6 just keeps on going in the passive "Off" mode, when using the supplied Mini-Jack cable. Or recharge to 100% in 2 hours via a standard USB-C connector.

CONNECTIVITY
For high wireless audio performance, the DALI IO supports Bluetooth AptX, AptX HD and Apple AAC. But for the highest possible quality, DALI IO includes a USB-C connector, which supports digital audio streaming from Windows or Mac. The IO also incorporates a traditional wired analogue Mini Jack.

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's are 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. All done, “In admiration of music”.

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.
