Immerse Yourself in Exceptional Sound
Experience superior high-precision sound with Austrian Audio’s The Composer headphones. These headphones deliver exceptional clarity, intricate detail, and a natural sound, creating a captivatingly wide stereo image. To measure audio fidelity, we consider Total Harmonic Distortion (THD). At the standard frequency of 1 kHz, The Composer boasts an astonishing THD value of <0.1%, demonstrating superb performance. What truly sets it apart is its performance at lower frequencies, particularly the impactful 60 Hz bass drum thrust, where it outshines competitors, delivering THD values up to three times better. The Composer offers unmatched precision and accuracy in bass reproduction, providing audiophiles with an unparalleled listening experience that reveals every nuance of the music’s low-end frequencies.
Revolutionary Hi-X Driver Technology
AUSTRIAN AUDIO The Composer headphones feature groundbreaking Hi-X (High Excursion) technology, setting new standards in sound quality. Equipped with a 49 mm driver and a precision CNC machined ring magnet system, incorporating powerful N52 magnets, these headphones enhance airflow and deliver the most robust magnetic field in their class. The HI-X49 DLC driver’s diaphragm is coated with diamond-like carbon (DLC), ensuring exceptional rigidity and shifting break-up frequencies higher. This innovation enables authentic, piston-like behavior without added weight, delivering swift impulse bass imaging with remarkably low Total Harmonic Distortion (THD) in lower frequencies. Combined with a linear frequency response and an open, precise, high-resolution sound signature, The Composer offers an unparalleled listening experience, redefining the standards for high-end audiophiles.
Seamless Connectivity, Crafted for Audiophiles
The Composer by AUSTRIAN AUDIO presents a comprehensive cable solution, featuring 3.5mm and 6.3mm Jack plugs, a 4.4mm Pentaconn connector, and 4Pin XLR connectors. Notably, the latter two offer a full symmetrical connection, optimizing the path from amplifier to transducer.
In a groundbreaking move, The Composer introduces Banana Jack connectors, globally recognized for their reliability and ample conductive surface area. The choice of a nonproprietary plug allows customization, empowering audiophiles to explore endless cable possibilities.
Designed with meticulous attention to detail, the cables attach to the headband, ensuring balanced force distribution across the head, sparing delicate ears from strain. The upper section, enveloped in elastomer, eliminates unwanted noise interference, while the lower part boasts an elegant woven textile finish, blending sophistication with practicality.
With its thoughtful design and superior connectivity options, The Composer seamlessly marries functionality and style, delivering an enchanting and immersive audio journey tailored for the most discerning audiophiles.
