The Hiby Crystal 6 as the name suggests is equipped with a six Balanced Armature driver configuration on both sides. It features Knowles 22955 Low-frequency driver, 2 custom-tuned 1006 BA units for transparent mid-frequencies, 1 custom-tuned 30098, and 2 custom-tuned 31735 BA units for silky smooth treble frequencies. The pair is tuned to provide a balanced yet detailed and natural sound quality output complementing different genres of music well.
HiBy has professionally designed the insides of the HiBy Crystal 6 earpieces with a full 4-way electrical crossover and 4 independent acoustic tubes. Both the electrical and acoustic crossovers are customized to each driver unit. This presents ultra-low multi-driver distortion in the output along with accurate imaging and tonality. There is no frequency overlapping present in the output.
HiBy has equipped the audio circuitry inside the Crystal 6 earpieces with imported Panasonic thin-film capacitors and dual-layered immersive gold-plated PCB. These highly-technical components allow the pair to achieve smooth sound clarity with reduced transmission signal loss.
Professional acoustic engineers at HiBy have tuned the Crystal 6 to present a balanced, detailed sound output with natural tonality. It accurately produces the minutest details in our music with a wide soundstage presenting an enjoyable musical experience for the users.
The Crystal 6 earpieces are made using an epoxy-filled interior with a German Nice-Fit UV cured enamel exterior and dyed wooden faceplates with a unique texture on each and every unit. It looks no less than a piece of art and provides a super comfortable fit for its users with its custom-shaped earmolds. Not to mention the earpieces are surprisingly lightweight, only 6.5gr for each earpiece.
