DALI iO-6 Noise-Cancelling Wireless Headphones Review

Danish Audiophile Loudspeaker Industries aka DALI is known for its high-performance speakers. Now the company offers premium full-sized adaptive noise canceling headphones to compete with the likes of Sony, Bose, Bowers and Wilkins and others. The DALI iO-6’s $500 MSRP puts them at the high end price wise compared to the most popular competition, so let’s see it these cans are worth the $$$.

How does the Sony compare to the Bose Quietcomfort 35 for noise cancellation? My old Bose QC15 has died and Bose gave me a upgrade to the 35 for a nominal charge.

For many years, the QC15 were the best in noise cancellation. I only use these headphones when I fly in airplanes

Simply the best. The Sony ANC is better than anyone else (owned both).

These sound DOA. The price and worse ANC make them a pass. Glad you mentioned comfort in your review. With international flying, the Sony’s seem to be the only ones I can wear for 8+ hours without discomfort. I haven’t tried to updated B&W, but i have the PX and they get pretty uncomfortable a few hours in.

"....make that noise appear to disappear."? Great review though. I never thought of it, but I think you're on to something regarding the round earcups, they'll have to be much bigger to encompass the whole ear, which would probably mean they won't seal behind the ear, which will defeat the purpose of noise cancelling, but these do look super nice.

I own a couple of Sennheiser 'phones and the oval shape does make it easier to forget that you're wearing them.
