It has been incredibly valuable to have the Ollo S4X Reference Headphones as part of my studio arsenal, especially during the pandemic, when I couldn't take my mix somewhere else to listen. Having them at hand gave me the tools to keep working and trust what I was hearing.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying that you should get rid of your favorite studio monitors but as a secondary pair of monitors or for those times where using monitors is not practical the S4X is a perfect candidate.
When I started to make 55, the album that I’m close to releasing, I was living in a caravan in the Outer Hebrides. My drummer and I were taking time out - him from session work and me from endless production of youngsters EPs - and our live room was a stone igloo by the Atlantic Ocean without a single straight line in its construction.
There is much talk about the underrepresentation of women in the area of music production but few have managed to capture the essence of the issue in the raw, yet optimistic video form that is In Ctrl, premiered on the 14th of February.
I can confidently say that these headphones are the best I've used to date. They offer a great amount of comfort and the sound translates to my high-end monitors, car speakers and hifi sets. The price may seem a little steep for headphones when compared to other highly reviewed models at ⅔ of the price.
