Ollo Audio HPS S4X

Over-ear studio headphones - rustic in look and sound

Ollo Audio HPS S4X are reference headphones in the mid-range price range. How neutral and honest do they actually sound?

Editor's recommendations: Ollo Audio

The Ollo Audio HPS S4X are consistently high quality in both manufacture and delivery, and these headphones are sure to find many fans with their natural warm sound. A convincing package and the best materials will make many headphone fans happy. In addition, these headphones reproduce everything that is important for mixing and/or recording, as long as the audio material is not particularly dynamic or doesn’t need to be listened to at too high a volume. Unfortunately this device does not only score points on the credit side. For example, the membranes react to strong steep-edged transients with distortion even at medium volumes. And a design faux pas, for me at least, are the “sounds” made by the headband when the headphones are touched due to structure-borne noise. The price/performance ratio of the S4X is still okay, however they are not necessarily “brutally honest” headphones, but they are very specialised ones.
