The Review on Dali iO-6 Headphones

It’s a wireless earbud society today, thanks to the rise of Airpods and the ultra-convenience we pursue day in and day out. But none of that really does music and sound justice, and a newcomer to the headphone market, Dali, is here to remind you. They’re the reminder we need too, a reminder that the hi-fi headphone market remains very much alive, and that it’s still worth getting a few oversized cans if you really want to hear all the details of Madonna’s “Like a prayer.”

Meet the Dali iO-6 headphones, a pair of wireless hi-fi cans designed to be worth every penny of their ultra-steep retail price ($499). Danish manufacturer Dali is best known for its loudspeakers, but he channels the intensity and feel of the loudspeaker with this foray into headphones. Thoughtfully designed and expertly crafted, the Dali iO-6 is a device that shines if you love audio detail.

The devil is in the details for these cans, which in some ways feel like a throwback. We’re a minimalist culture these days and when it comes to sound, we take cues from Beats by Dre’s sleek designs. But Dali wants to make over-ear cans worthwhile, and it proves it by delivering a milky sound. Small details are present in almost every song, from ‘Like a Prayer’ to Michael Jackson’s ‘Beat It’. The guitar moments begin in Run-DMC’s “Walk This Way” and Green Day’s “Time of Your Life”.

If there’s one flaw with this detailed, high-quality sound, it’s a surprising lack of bass. For example, there is only a limited thump in Eminem’s “Lose Yourself.” On the other hand, even this seems calculated for your pleasure. Many headphones struggle to deliver clear explosions during movies, but the iO-6 has no such issues with the heavy action of the Avengers movies, and it thrives when I play Call of Duty on PC. Clarity is the name of Dali’s game here, and it’s effective and well-rounded.

The design is also well-rounded, although theoretically Dali is a bit new to this. These over-ear cans don’t really feel substantial, although the build quality is sufficiently sturdy. I wore them for four hours in a row one day and had no signs of ear fatigue. Ear cups that can be rotated 180 degrees help, and extra soft leather keeps your ears comfortable. It’s an elegant package overall and it naturally cuts out a lot of ambient noise, even before you explore the active noise cancellation features.

The active noise cancellation is sound, powered by a small battery of buttons on one earcup. Dali learns lessons from the industry and loves buttons minimal and small, allowing a still sleek aesthetic to shine. You get a power button on the right earcup and some simple touch controls for volume control, call handling and noise cancellation built right into the surface of the earcup. It feels familiar and intuitive and it works exceptionally well.

Dali’s noise cancellation, meanwhile, is impressive and completely cuts out all noise whether you’re on the subway or just working home trying to drown out the kids and the dog. Instead, focus on satisfying, elegant sound. However, Dali keeps up with the times and adds what it calls “Transparency” mode, stopping the music and letting you hear everything around you, a sleek addition for airports and train stations.

All the possible goodies you could wish for are also bundled with the iO-6s. You get a USB-C cable for easy charging, a smart, modern choice when some headphone companies are still in the micro-USB days. You even get a 3.5mm cable and a flight connector, two throwback pieces you may never use because many laptops, iPads and phones missing 3.5mm ports. Still, it’s better to be more compatible than less, and Dali gets a lot of credit here. One thing you don’t get (and this is a plus) is an app; Dali’s headphones are meant to be easier to operate than that, so you don’t need to download anything to your phone.

The whole package is well worth your time if you’re looking for some easy listening. Sure, you’ll want your earbuds for the gym, and you might want them for quick errands, too. But when is it time to actually listen to a song? You want this one.
