Audio46's Opinion

The iO-12 is probably the most skilled and most enjoyable sounding wireless headphone on the market right now. With a versatile bass, comprehensive mids, and luminous highs, there’s no genre that this headphone can’t handle. Add to that an immaculately clean and detailed profile, and you’ve got a flawless sound signature that becomes more addictive the longer you listen to it.

Highest standards of design, durability, comfort and sound quality

DALI IO-12 headphones are designed and engineered using the same sound principles as our full-size loudspeakers. Featuring technologies such as our patented SMC magnet driver material, low-loss rubber surround, rigid paper fibre cone and low resonance enclosures, the IO-12s deliver the same low-loss sound with ultimate clarity and dynamic capabilities that you would expect from any DALI speaker. They're true Hi-Fi speakers for your head.]

World-first driver technology

The IO-12s are the world's first headphones to feature an SMC magnet system. Using the same material as our high-end EPICON speakers, Soft Magnetic Compound reduces eddy currents and hysteresis to lower uneven harmonic distortion drastically, resulting in crystal-clear, ultra-low distortion sound that brings you closer to reality.
