Hi-Xcursion (High Excursion) technology is the key to the astonishing sound of the Hi-X65 headphones.

All Austrian Audio Hi-X headphones feature a 44 mm driver and a ring magnet system. This design allows for improved airflow and includes the strongest magnetic field in its class.
The ring magnet, combined with a copper-clad aluminum voice coil, reduces the weight of the membrane and the voice coil connected to it, allowing the membrane to move or change direction faster, providing a more responsive impulse reaction.

Austrian Audio's science, measurements, and listening tests have shown that 44mm is the optimum size for this design. It ensures professional performance in the Hi-X, moves a lot of air, and eliminates 'wobbling' of the diaphragm. This is akin to damping of the driver mass, which is where Austrian Audio's membrane really shows results: it is ultra-stiff while still reducing unwanted resonance.

Austrian Audio is an over looked new brand ran by former akg headphone people. These are amazing and a good Dac amp pre amp makes them shine. An eq is even better. These compete with 1000 dollar plus headphones
