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.

What people are saying

MAJOR Hi-Fi

Techradar

Its sound signature is superb and keeps exciting me the more I listen to it. I didn't know so much detail could be revealed to you through a compressed Bluetooth CODEC, but the IO-12 does a phenomenal job convincing you that you're listening to a hi-fi sound.
