    A rare-earth metal element that can be made into magnets, amongst other things. However, it is its properties for making stronger magnets than other materials of the same size that make the element of interest to the audio community. Used in microphones, it can produce greater output than non neodymium versions, for headphones it allows for lighter drivers and for speaker design it allows for more powerful drivers for a given size.
