‘Microphone quality is really good. Nice clear vocal clarity, it’s very, very good indeed.’ ‘You sound superb to your recipients as well.’ ‘Really exceptional. Indeed, I listened to some music on these and I was impressed with music.’ ‘The quality is absolutely top notch.’
A clear sound profile makes these headsets excellent for those seeking accuracy in their music listening and clarity in the reproduction of in-game details.
Custom PC (09/2022)
One of the first things I noticed about the PB17 is that the audio quality really is impressive.’ ‘This headset works fantastically for calls, with crystal clear audio and a mic that picks up incredibly well, and it’s just as impressive for listening to music or listening to video audio.
Entertainment Focus
The mics have a fixed external popshield and do a solid job of picking up your voice even when positioned a little further away from your mouth.

High Excursion Technology

Professional Headphones

Hi-Xcursion (High Excursion) technology is the key to the astonishing sound of our Hi-X15 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.

Our 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 our membrane really shows results: it is ultra-stiff while still reducing unwanted resonance.
