DALI IO-12 and Bluesound Node X

At the DALI booth on the High End audio show, you were able to listen to the latest headphones from DALI, driven by the strictly limited Bluesound Node X.

The headphones come with Bluetooth aptX Adaptive and ANC from Sony. The IO-12 does not have to be operated active via Bluetooth, but can also be controlled completely analog and passive. New compared to the two previous models IO-4 and IO-6 is the so-called "Sound Mode" button, which can be used to switch between "hi-fi" and a more bass-emphasized tuning.

The IO-12 is deliberately designed to work completely without an app. The 50-millimeter drivers also use DALI's SMC technology, proven for example in the company's flagship Kore loudspeakers, for the first time. For now, the IO-12 is only available in brown with leather for around €1,000.

The new headphones from Denmark were presented at the High End Munich playing with Bluesound's strictly limited Node X – a special edition of the popular streamer Node with better DAC and high-quality THX AAA headphone amplifier for around €800.
