The Composer by Austrian Audio is a premium reference headphone designed for connoisseurs and professionals to hear their music in its finest form.

These headphones deliver spacious yet precise high frequencies, and faithful and swift bass impulses at remarkably low THD (Total Harmonic Distortion) levels. This ensures an incredibly revealing listening journey that sets new standards in high-end listening.

The adjustable headband employs a unique mesh material to release heat and avoid perspiration, and the design weighs in at under 400 grams.

Tilt-able ear cups enable four positions to help achieve a flawless fit. The cables attach directly to the headband to protect the ears from undue strain.

The Composer is designed for audiophiles who truly value hearing every nuance of their favourite music. It features the most sophisticated mechanical design on the market, that optimizes the listening experience, with drivers perfectly placed towards the listener's ears.

These high-end headphones are also incredibly comfortable, even during long listening sessions. All touch points, including the soft and durable memory foam ear pads, have been meticulously designed to ensure the best fit for the listener's ears.

The unparalleled sound quality of the AUSTRIAN AUDIO The Composer headphones is attributed to their exclusive Hi-X (High Excursion) technology.

The headphones boast a 49 mm driver that incorporates a precision CNC machined ring magnet system, featuring N52 magnets known for their exceptional strength. This unique ring design not only enhances airflow but also delivers the most powerful magnetic field in its class.

The Composer comes complete with three distinct cables. A Jack plug (TRS) is provided in both 3.5mm and 6.3mm sizes, alongside a 4.4mm Pentaconn connector and 4Pin XLR connectors. The latter two connectors permit a full symmetrical connection, boasting two conductors from the amplifier to the transducer.
