Active Noise Cancellation Complements Wireless Convenience, Foldable Portability, and Drivers with Neodymium Magnets: Dali IO-6 Headphones Isolate You from the Outside World
Custom 1.97-inch paper fiber-cone drivers with an optimized neodymium magnet system, three different active noise-cancellation modes, up to 30 hours of playback on a single charge, and foldable portability: The Dali IO-6 change what's possible from a sub-$1k set of closed-back wireless headphones. Able to play with low distortion and coloration, the Denmark-developed IO-6 delivers accuracy, dynamics, and fatigue-free involvement that take you inside the recording. What's more, its ability to cut out aural din from the outside world and envelop you in what you want to hear by way of a separate, powerful amplification section
Connectable via Bluetooth 5.0, ACC, and aptX HD, the lightweight ‘phones also use Clear Voice Communication for hands-free calls, so you'll never need worry about missing out on an important contact while listening to music. And did we mention IO-6 lasts for up to 30 hours on a single charge to its lithium-ion battery? That's convenience! Ditto the two multi-color LED indicators on the right ear cup, and a passive mode that keeps IO-4 running even if you run out of battery. Simply plug-in the supplied mini-jack cable. When you're ready to charge again, IO-6 fully restores to full potential in just 2.5 hours.
Of course, the 11.5-ounce IO-6 also keeps your comfort in mind. Memory-foam ear pads that naturally shape to the human head for a cohesive seal. On the outside, the pads are covered in soft synthetic leather, while the ear cups rotate 90 degrees both ways in order to fold flat for compact storage or hang comfortably around your neck. Whether you listen at home or on the go, or both, IO-6 has your needs covered. A USB-C cable, 3.5mm cable, flight adapter, and travel case come with every pair.
Enjoy the convenience and sonics of a new age of wireless sound – and active noise cancellation – with IO-6, backed by our 100% Music Direct Satisfaction Guarantee.
Three Noise Cancellation Modes
IO-6 is a closed-back unit, designed to provide a high level of natural passive noise isolation (PNI). However, low frequency noise cannot be removed passively, which is why IO-6 employs the latest ANC technology to remove background noise. IO-6 offers three different ANC modes that enable you to choose how much of the surrounding noise you want to cancel out: ANC ON, ANC OFF and Transparency mode. When ANC is activated, IO-6 actively cancels low frequency noise: e.g. in the shape of a repeating and rhythmic deep background rumble. Be it in the office, on an airplane, bus or train or when mowing the lawn. When ANC is deactivated, you will still experience a high degree of isolation due to the sealed closure of the soft ear pads providing a natural PNI. The third mode, Transparency, bypasses the Passive Noise Isolation (PNI) by feeding external ambient audio into the headphone audio. The headphones effectively become one-way (out to in) acoustically transparent. Removing the background noise helps you to relax and enjoy your favorite music whether it be at home or on the go. Along with reducing the annoyance of external noise, noise cancelling improves the audibility of music detail, meaning you can listen at lower volume – reducing the potential of long term hearing damage. You can easily toggle between the three ANC modes with a dedicated button placed conventionally on the rim of the right ear cup, making it easy to access even with gloves.
