Designed for critical monitoring and quality control, the iMix 5.1 Monitor is the world’s first surround headphone system that doesn't rely on an artificial ambience or special encoding to create 5.1 surround in headphones. Orban’s DSX Headphone Surround™ algorithm delivers a rock-solid soundfield and features the latest version ITU-R BS.1770 loudness measurement.

  • Headphone monitor for 5.1 surround program audio using the latest version ITU-R BS. 1770 loudness measurement for compliance worldwide.
  • Uses any type of headphone, including open back, closed-back, in-ear or earbuds.
  • Built-in Zenith control eliminates need for individual HRTF calibration or special setup.
  • No proprietary encoding is needed to accurately render a discrete 5.1 soundstage with complete stability.
  • Test tone locations are rendered with absolute image integrity including Black & Lane's Identification Tones for Surround (BLITS) and SWOOP tests.
  • Adds no Artificial Ambience to your mix.

The iMix 5.1 Monitor uses any type of headphone without the need for individual HRTF calibration or special setup - including open and closed-back headphones, in-ear monitors or earbuds. A built-in Zenith control allows fine-tuning of center and surround channel height.

No proprietary surround encoding is required to accurately render a completely stable and discrete 5.1 soundstage. Test tone locations are rendered with absolute image integrity, including BLITS tones and SWOOP tests without the need for artificial ambience that masks the program audio. Designed to be used by broadcasters, production houses, content creators, recording studios, mastering houses and HDTV networks, Orban’s iMix 5.1 Monitor represents the only completely compatible non-ambient creating surround headphone monitoring technology available.
