TRUE HI-FI SOUND
Highest standards of design, durability,
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.
CLOSER TO REALITY
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 Composite 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.
WIRED OR WIRELESS
The only headphones you'll ever need
Whether you're plugged into your Hi-Fi immersed in your vinyl collection or paired with your smartphone enjoying on-the-go music, DALI IO-12s harness advanced technologies like Bluetooth® aptX Adaptive to deliver an astonishing musical experience, however you use them.
AUDIOPHILE ACTIVE NOISE CANCELLATION
Leave the world behind
Silence the distractions and enjoy every detail of your favourite music. Our cutting-edge Audiophile Active Noise Cancellation technology delivers a truly immersive listening experience while blocking out low-frequency noises. With three AANC modes, you can tailor the IO-12s to your situation, whether you're relaxing at home or on your daily commute.
35-HOUR BATTERY LIFE
Extended listening between charges
An advanced lithium-ion battery delivers up to 35 hours of peerless playback so that you can enjoy extended listening on a single charge. And with battery-level LEDs and a voice prompt to tell you how much charge you have left, you never need to run out of power.
DUAL SOUND MODES
Two sound profiles to match your taste
Tailor the performance to your own style with 'Hi-Fi' and 'Bass' sound modes. Whether you like your music as the artist intended or you prefer a more punchy, bass-focused performance, the IO-12s let you listen to your music just the way you want it.
