here is one of the better videos that explains how HSS works. It is a Pocket Wizard ad but the animations are very good.


Forgot turn on HSS could ruin your photos that happened to me when I was wondering why my fill-flash portrait photos were overblown outdoor when I used fast lens.  I since stick a yellow note on all my flashguns "HSS"   HSS should be on all the time as at X-sync shutter speed or below, it will use full strength of flash anyway and only on reduced strength when shutter is above X-sync.  Don't understand why Canon flashguns have this option by default turning off or after everytime you removed battery for recharging for example.
