Highest standards of design, durability, comfort and sound quality.

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 Compound 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.

35-Hour Battery Life
