Austrian Audio Composer Review and First Impression 2024

Austrian Audio is a well-established brand in the universe of professional audio. It has a wide range of professional audio products from Headphones to Microphones.

Recently this company has unveiled its highly awaited product “Composer Headphone” which is a professional headphone made for audio professionals, like engineers, music producers and composers.

Here, we’ll review this professional headphone and see if it’s good for audio production applications.

So, without wasting any more time, let’s dive into this.

First off,

Key Features

Austrian audio Composer is an Over ear, open-back headphone that fulfills the first criteria of a mixing headphone.

Company claims that this headphone has a Frequency response of 5 Hz – 44 kHz, however, we do not need this wide range of frequency response.

Human ear is only capable of listening to 20Hz to 20kHz. Still, we should always look at the product’s frequency response chart, especially if it’s a matter of professional audio.

As measured by some professionals here is the frequency response chart of Austrian Audio composer Headphones.


As you can see in the graph, it has some high-frequency boost along with a slight mid-range. So, you have to be aware of instruments with high-frequency when mixing with these headphones.

The THD aka Total Harmonic Distortion levels, ensures you get high-end monitoring through these headphones.

The adjustable and soft earcups and the lightweight design (400 gms) make it a great mixing headphone as you need to put on them for long durations.

With multiple,e connectivity options such as balanced 4pin XLR, balanced 4.4 mm Pentaconn, 3.5 mm Jack, and newly invented Banana Jack it gives you the ability to use this headphone with any device.

One thing I really like about this is the service guarantee. The company ensures that this product is fully serviceable. Apart from other headphones, you can get service for any part of this product.

And, this is obvious as it’s a premium headphone with a high price tag.

It is equipped with 49mm driver design with a diaphragm coated with diamond-like carbon. That’s the reason why it is so costly.

But with time, they widened thier product range and now they have a range of headphones and microphone brands used by several professional audio engineers and studios.

Today they have 9 headphones and headset products, 1 headphone amplifier and 14 microphones from condenser to dynamic ones.


Now again come to the features of Austrian audio compser Headphones.

So, why should you buy these headphones? Here are some sound features that will definitely tease you to buy this.

49mm Hi-X Driver

This carbon-coated driver makes it possible to provide high-quality sound with nearly flat frequency response best for audio monitoring and post-production.

This headphone comes with a balanced 4pin XLR 3 m cable, balanced 4.4 mm Pentaconn 3 m cable and 3.5 mm Jack 3 m cable and also includes 6.3 mm adapter.

These interchangeable cables make it highly compatible with all devices and recording environments.

  • High-quality tone and nearly flat frequency response
  • 49mm big size drivers
  • Amazing bass side
  • Magnet attachment for earcups
  • Perfect for al types of audio applications


  • You would feel some distant sound compared to other headphones
  • High price point

My Verdict

Austrian Audio Composer Headphones are actually built to provide high-quality but smooth audio delivery.

Hence, it’s an ideal solution for those who like soothing music. However, you can also use these headphones for professional audio purposes.

But, it’s actually not solely built for audio recording purposes. By the way, you would be satisfied with its nearly flat frequency range. Well, on the higher side there is some boost but it can be adjustable when you are familiar with the sound.

The price is another thing that you should consider as it costs much more than other high-quality recording headphones.

Now it’s your turn to make a decision about it. Let me know in the comments if you have an experience with these headphones.
