Ixos's XHA-616 certainly feels solid and well made to the touch, but performance could be better Tested at £69.00

Our Verdict

This Ixos would be OK to spice up a dull system, but it just doesn't do enough right for us

For

  • Lively sound
  • good detailing

Against

  • Strident treble
  • muddy bass

The chunky, yet flexible Ixos XHA-616 feels solid and well built. It's a lively beast too, offering a wide, punchy sound, with good detail.

Tonally, the midrange is prominent and relatively smooth, with vocals moving to the fore.

We find the treble to be too brilliantly lit, though, verging on the strident, while bass lacks grip and authority.
