Most headphone speakers are 50mm in size, and the largest are the HyperX with 100mm speakers. How large are the speakers in these headphones ?

From various sources on the internet, the HE-400i has 60mm drivers, so it is likely that the HE-400se and this HE-4X have the same or similar size. The Audeze LCD-2 planar magnetic headphones have 106mm drivers, I believe, and it's not unusual for planar magnetic headphones to have larger drivers generally than dynamic-driver headphones, but it's not necessarily a reliable indicator of anything on its own. The high-end Abyss AB-1266 Phi TC, for example, "only" have 66 mm planar magnetic drivers.

50mm dynamic is not the same as 100mm planar - diff technologies. 100mm also isn't the largest driver size out there. There's plenty planars much larger that can go up to the size of a mattress. The driver can be any size and be comparable so long as the tuning is done well enough. Planars have a different dynamic and mechanical function than dynamic drivers. Dynamic drivers are pretty much the same as your typical cone speaker whereas planar work like a wall of sound as a result you get different sonic characteristics.

You're talking about dynamic driver size. These are planar and assuming they're like the 400/xx, 60mm. That said, it really doesn't mean anything.

40mm drivers seem really common though :/ Also, there isn't a reliable correlation between driver size and sound quality. If it interests you, planar drivers generally run larger than dynamic drivers, and for this model, assuming it takes after the HE-4-- series' square drivers, would have a larger driver surface area compared to that of circular dynamic drivers even with the same numerical value attached to their diameters. I don't have my HE-400i and HE-4XX with me now, even assuming they share the same driver dimensions as these. However, gauging from memory and a measuring tape they should be close to 50mm (side of square)
