Product Description

Summary The HE-400s work extremely well on portable devices but they can also be used most effectively with a high-quality hi-fi system. The HE-400 combines the advantages of a traditional dynamic design (such as 92.5dB sensitivity) and high output whilst offering a similar sonic signature (detailed yet 'warm') to the company's top-of-the-line reference models. Features HiFiMAN HE-400 - A New Level of Performance Trusted Reviews: Excellent! Easily Powered by Standard Amplifiers Planar-Magnetic Drivers Create Superior Sound Comfortable Lightweight Design with Special Earpads Striking Cobalt Blue Colour Design Driver: 50mm diameter dynamic drivers. Impedance: 35 ohm. Sensitivity: 92.5dB @ 1KHZ 1mW. Rated power: 30 mW. Frequency: 20 HZ to 35 kHz. Weight: 440g approximately. Details HifiMan HE-400 Headphones A breakthrough in both planar magnetic pricepoint and also in warm acoustic performance HifiMan's most recent headphone design provides the most affordable entry point for listeners seeking uniquely precise planar-magnetic sound quality. Easy to drive even direct from portable players or an iPhone a nice portable amp will add clean punch and improved definition for audiophile listeners. Sweet dark indigo colour stands subtly apart from the pack. HiFiMAN HE-400 Open Back Portable Orthodynamic Audiophile Headphones is another remarkable achievement from HiFiMAN. Compared to HiFiMAN's top-end power hungry planar magnetic headphones the HE-400 can be driven with lower-output headphone amplifiers. With low impedance and high efficiency they provide superb sound coupled with great comfort for the best possible portable audio experience. The high sensitivity of the HE-400 is remarkable for planar magnetic headphones meaning that they require less power and are easily driven with most headphone amplifiers. The HE400 utilises printed circuits result in an extremely light and responsive driver offering greater precision and reduced resonance compared to conventional dynamic .

Verified Purchase
I got a pair of Beyerdynamic T90 & had to send them back as they did not work.
So in the interim I treated myself to the above & the improvement was incredible, these cans are without a doubt the BEST headphones I have owned .clear, detailed ,great soundstage to the point that you think you are in the studio.
So much so I blew another £135 on a HIFIMAN cable upgrade & they sound FANTASTIC.

I have decided to use my Beyer's as a second pair, I think the 400s are a true bargain if you are like me a serious music lover!

When I originally got into this hobby some 2 years ago, my first run of purchases included Sennheiser HD650's, Denon D5000 and Ultrasone Pro900's. I also had a couple beaters from Koss laying around like the Porta Pros (which I LIKE!). So upon purchasing my first true head amp (a Fiio E10) I thought my journey was over.... I had an amazing closed headphone, an amazing open headphone, a decent amp/dac... nuff said. Lets close the book on this consumer business and listen to some music.

From there I focused a good amount of my energy on (A) fixing up my 54 Lincoln and (B) mechanical watches..... I was in the throws of said watch obsession waiting for Steinhart to fill inventory on the Ocean 44 dive watch when I saw an episode of "How It's Made" on TV at the AKG factory in Austria where they take you through the steps of construction on one of the K702's.

Headphones!.... OH I LIKE THOSE

Since Steinhart was pushing their restock date back to August... maybe I can spend some of that money that is burning a hole in my pocket on a pair of Headphones.

And so the bug bit again.... But this time reading through forums, websites and reviews the kiss of death was bestowed on the K701 and 702 (which were my knee jerk target purchase after watching the show) but words like: lacking bass, thin sounding, airy and very NEUTRAL were intertwined into descriptions of their sound.... meh! I cannot handle thin sounding anything.
I've been to too many live shows to be able to pass off a thin sound as accurate.

Also (to me) the word "Neutral" conjures up images of a lifeless two dimensional sound that is lacking pace rhythm& and attack.

I have had these now for almost 2 years and these are truly stunning in every sense of the world. I use the NJC monitor II HPA with these and the result is a musical odyssey. I must however mention that be very careful with the cables. I ripped off the HP cables easily (my bad) and now considering a replacement cable.
