Austrian Audio GmbH – With the wealth of experience of the traditional AKG brand
Austrian Audio GmbH is a comparatively young company, after all, it was only founded in July 2017. However, the company can claim to be a start-up with an outstanding treasure of more than 350 years of experience, as Austrian Audio GmbH was founded by a core team of 22 former employees of the traditional AKG brand after Harman International Industries decided to withdraw its production and development from Austria.
Austrian Audio GmbH has long since been able to offer an exciting, broad product range in the areas of headphones and microphones, whereby in the area of microphones the company caters exclusively to the pro audio sector, while in the area of headphones it serves in a proven manner the professional environment as well as the higher quality segment for end customers in the area of personal audio devices.
Entering the high-end hi-fi segment
As already mentioned in the introduction, the new headphones, the Austrian Audio The Composer Premium Headphones, represent the entry into the high-end hi-fi segment, a solution that can serve as a reference with state-of-the-art technology.
The new Austrian Audio Full Score one Headphone Amplifier also has equally ambitious goals, but the company explicitly states that it does not only want to target the hi-fi sector, but also the pro audio segment.
Austrian Audio The Composer Premium Headphones
There are a number of features that make the new Austrian Audio The Composer Premium Headphones something truly exceptional. First and foremost, the manufacturer refers to the latest technology of the Austrian Audio Hi-X49DLC driver, which is used here. A key feature here is a diaphragm tip with Diamond Like Carbon coating, also often abbreviated as DLC. This explains part of the aforementioned term Hi-X49DLC, the 49 simply stands for the diameter of the diaphragm, which is 49 mm.
The diaphragm is supposed to be particularly stiff due to the special coating and thus guarantee an authentic listening experience with the highest precision over all volume levels. A powerful drive based on N52 magnets and designed as a precision-manufactured ring magnet system also contributes significantly to this.
From the point of view of sober figures, the new Austrian Audio The Composer Premium Headphones are said to be able to reproduce a frequency range between 5 Hz and 44 kHz, with an impedance of only 22 ohms and a sensitivity of 112 dB as well as a nominal load of 160 mW.
These headphones are designed as so-called over-ear headphones, with an open construction and adjustable and tiltable ear cups for ideal adaptation to different head shapes and sizes. Soft pads, which are magnetically attached and thus replaceable, also ensure maximum comfort.
The comparatively light weight of the headphones also contributes to the high wearing comfort: only 385 g can be found in the data sheet.
Yes, even the cable is designed with comfort in mind: the detachable cable is not attached to the ear cups, but rather directly to the headband, so that the ears are protected from the strain, as the manufacturer states.
Three cables are included, two of which are designed for use at home with a length of three metres and are once a 3.5 mm stereo mini-jack and 4-pin XLR respectively, whereas the third cable with a length of 1.4 m is designed for mobile use and ends in a 4.4 mm pentaconn. An adapter from 3.5 mm stereo mini-jack to 6.3 mm jack is not missing and a matching box made of black wood provides a special touch of luxury.
Austrian Audio Full Score one Headphone Amplifier
The headphone amplifier Austrian Audio Full Score one Headphone Amplifier is designed as a discrete, very compact solution, using the so-called True Transient Technology, abbreviated as TTT.
With this technology, the headphone amplifier is supposed to act extremely fast, have a particularly low transient response and thus ensure that even the finest nuances can be reproduced with full detail.
As further essential features of the new Austrian Audio Full Score one Headphone Amplifier, Austrian Audio GmbH states that it is an amplifier circuit that can easily drive a variety of different headphones, regardless of whether they are designed with high or low impedance. The circuit uses a high-voltage design for a particularly wide dynamic range and extremely low noise level. The company refers to an amplifier circuit consisting of a wideband voltage feedback amplifier with a fully balanced voltage amplifier stage, a cascoded parallel differential amplifier input stage and a triple output stage in class B operation.
It is striking that the headphone amplifier is extremely compact with dimensions of 220 x 265 x 65 mm, and with a weight of only 2.8 kg it is by all means very light. Nevertheless, there is nothing lacking, because on the input side there are two XLR and one pair of RCA sockets, on the output side this solution offers two 6.3 mm stereo jack sockets as well as one 4-pin XLR.
