Calibrated monitoring for Atmos, Sony360, Auro 3D, Unreal etc.
Optimized frequency response to translate spatial audio between speakers and headphones playback - binaural downmix. Their sound field is acoustically designed to provide a neutral base for the HRTF virtualisation of spatial audio formats in binaural mode. With full 360 degrees of accurately spatialised positions and movements the translation of the mix between speakers and headphones is always spot on. The target curve for these headphones was developed by capturing a certified Dolby Atmos studio and human A/B testing.
See below an example of the S5X adherence to the target curve (black line) before and after calibration.

I never used headphones to make my mixes, except to check for any noise that was causing me problems, but I never trusted the sound I heard for the mix, now that I bought Ollo Audio headphones on my way of working has changed. Thanks Ollo Audio
I’m so happy working with the new OLLO S5 Headphones! It fully translate what we have in our Mastering Studios : very accurate and transparent, without artificial coloration or boost, it perfectly match with our state of the art Monitoring Systems. They’re neutral and brutaly honest, and that’s what I’m looking for as Mastering Engineer working each day on a different project
I love how I hear all the details in my mix with these headphones. The highs are silky smooth and the low end feels super tight and punchy
Can I just say that Rok and the guys and girls at Ollo Audio are geniuses! They have once again improved on their original design which I didn’t think was possible. They have done it by listening to users' Feedback and by involving pro-level producers and engineers in the development of the S5X.
The Ollo S5x is my go to headphone when mixing and checking my Atomos and stereo mixs at my 9.1.6 Red One Atmos Studio. I have Other headphones in my Studio which cost a lot more money by a well known brand... And even though they are great they do not compare in my opinion to the Ollo S5X.. The clarity and depth of field is incredible and for Spatial Audio I have found nothing better.
Superior phantom center is achieved by matching speakers using frequency domain analysis, which is more complete than just SPL analysis. To deliver an immersive experience, it is crucial to have accurate speaker matching when using room emulation plugins in binaural mode.
The speaker is designed with an ex-centric and angled placement within a conical radiation chassis. This design ensures an optimal sound stage as the base for the binaural renderer to do its magic.
The cable is designed with an OFC core that delivers the original signal without harmonic or other audible distortion. The silicone finish makes it less microphonic than braided cables and easier to handle.
The earpads are directly responsible for the acoustic coupling impedance between the headphones and your ears and hence greatly affect the frequency response. With professional daily use, they get deformed and replacement is required for continued high performance.
The headband is made of stainless steel and is designed to withstand heavy usage. If necessary it can be replaced using home tools, even when touring.
With the acoustic mesh by SATTI, air-flow resistance between the front and back of the speaker is carefully controlled to achieve smooth bass response and separation with low mids. The SoundSeal TM technology does that by keeping resonances and reflections under control.
These are not made out of plastic. Headband is made out of stainless steel, wooden cups are CNC machined American walnut and the backplates are aluminium.
Backed up with 5-year limited warranty.
They're not specifically tuned for stereo (S4X are) but they will deliver great results in stereo just as a certified Atmos or Sony studio does. If you mainly mix in stereo, we'd recommend the S4X over the S5X model.
No, these are analogue headphones without any DSP. Their frequency response is specifically tuned to deliver superior spatialisation of binauralised mix in Atmos or other spatial audio formats.
