Be on the lookout for new versions of these models next month, as the distributor has announced they will be available in two new colors, Army Green and Chalk White. These join the existing Iron Black and Caramel White options and provide consumers more contemporary looks to choose from. The two headphones are both equipped with 50mm drivers, BT 4.0, AAC, and aptX HD codecs, with the IO-6 adding Active Noise Cancelling on top.
We loved the IO-6 when we reviewed them a while back and thought they had the best sound of any ANC headphone. We were so impressed we added them to our list of The Best Wireless Headphones For Audiophiles! (2021).
Look for the new IO-4 and IO-6 finishes to begin shipping in early April 2021.

Lenbrook Americas Launches New Finishes of DALI IO Wireless Hi-Fi Headphones
Highly popular DALI IO-4 and IO-6 models now available in two new stylish colours
PICKERING, ONTARIO, CANADA, March 17, 2021 – Lenbrook Americas, distributor for the DALI Loudspeakers brand in Canada and the United States, today announced the launch of two new finishes of the highly popular DALI IO-4 (U.S. MSRP $399) and DALI IO-6 headphones (U.S. MSRP $499). The headphones are now offered in two additional striking colour options – Army Green and Chalk White, and also feature the signature DALI red on the inside of the ear pad and visible wiring. The new IO-4 and IO-6 finishes will begin shipping in early April 2021.
Created for the modern music lover, the DALI IO-4 and DALI IO-6 are wireless, battery rechargeable hi-fi headphones. Both models are over-ear, closed-back designs, engineered to offer extremely high-quality sound reproduction. The new colour finishes join the existing offerings of Iron Black and Caramel White, giving consumers a wider colour palette from which to choose.
Both models incorporate DALI’s custom-made 50mm drivers with an optimised neodymium magnet system to achieve low distortion, minimal colouration and accurate dynamics, connectivity via Bluetooth 4.0 AAC and aptX HD, Clear Voice Communication (CMC) for calls, and an extremely intuitive user-interface.
Built for extended listening with a comfortable, natural, transparent sound that never tires, the DALI IO models feature memory foam ear pads, guaranteeing a comfortable, acoustically superior seal over the ear and ensuring a perfect sounding performance, while the soft synthetic leather finish adds maximum durability.
While both DALI IO-6 and DALI IO-4 offer the same cutting-edge audio technologies for the ultimate in high-performance, the IO-6 differs from the IO-4 by incorporating active noise cancellation (ANC), to cut out sound disturbances from the outside world as well as providing a separate, more powerful, amplification section. However, by foregoing ANC, the IO-4 doubles its battery life to an incredible 60-hours per charge.
DALI’s new IO-4 and IO-6 offer the perfect blend of portable sound: comfort, power and performance.
DALI, (Danish Audiophile Loudspeaker Industries), was established in 1983, and grew out of Scandinavia’s leading audio retail chain. Now distributed in 65 countries, and with more than 35 years of experience and global recognition, DALI holds unwavering dedication to sound that has advanced the state of the art, inspiring music and cinema lovers and challenging the competition to catch up. DALI is driven by raw passion for music and an honest reproduction in the domestic environment.
