With the release of the new V2 version, these are our last stocks of the original Hi-Fi Man HE-1000 headphones at a discount price. These are HiFi Man's flagship planar magnetic headphones. Revolutionary in design and engineering, the diaphragm in nanometer thickness of the HiFi Man HE1000 is extremely low in mass, which helps it acheive a faster response rate and lower distortion. By far, these are some of the finest headphones we have ever heard.
Advanced and Asymmetrical
Based on 7 years of extensive research and devotion into the groundbreaking design, the headphones hold the capability to produce a near perfect reproduction of live music. Because the insufficient construction of sound apertures from classical planar magnetic driver creates reflections, deflections, and refraction of sound waves, resulting in audible distortion, the HE1000s feature an advanced asymmetrical planar driver. The innovative design of the double-sided, asymmetrical magnetic circuit is the perfect combination of the diaphragm in nanometer thickness and its Magnetic partner resulting in authentic Planar Magic.
Patented Window Shade System
The patented 'Window Shade' system was Created to meet the need for driver protection with an optimized open-back design. Traditional grill designs tend to reflect sound waves, creating audible interference and distortion but this design is precisely structured for optimal open-back design. It prevents interference from the soundwaves which cause distortion to gain a wider and natural soundstage and remarkable clarity.
With its unique design, exceptional function and exquisite craftsmanship, the HE1000 is quality checked by hand ensuring the item you receive is of total luxury standards.
- "Over time, HiFiMAN headphones have won a reputation for methodically pushing the limits of planar magnetic technology both in technical and sonic terms, and nowhere is this trend more apparent than in HiFiMAN’s eagerly awaited new flagship, the HE1000 headphone." (HiFi Plus Magazine)
- "The HE1000 driver is said to be the first in the world to use a diaphragm made of ‘nanometre thickness’ material (a material so thin, says HiFiMAN, that if turned on edge it would “be invisible to the naked eye”). The idea, of course, is that this ultra-thin diaphragm reduces the driver’s moving mass, thus allowing greater transient speed, superior resolution of low-level details, and lower overall distortion." (HiFi Plus Magazine)
- "First, the HE1000 sounds superb straight out of the box, but improves further still with additional run-in time (HiFiMAN recommends about 150 hours of run-in, which I provided). Though the before/after differences were fairly subtle, the run-in process takes an already excellent headphone and gives it a smidgeon more smoothness, nuance, and delicacy, plus the ability to dig even deeper into fine low-level sonic details." (HiFi Plus Magazine)
- "The HiFiMAN narrowly edged out the Abyss AB-1266 in terms of detailing and dynamics, while providing more evenly balanced frequency response and superior ergonomics. In those same areas, the HE1000 also handily outperformed the Audeze LCD-3, while offering plainly superior transient speeds and agility, plus a lighter and more comfortable fit. Interestingly, the Oppo PM-1 sounded like a ‘HE1000 Junior’, but ultimately the HiFiMAN headphone prevailed through its superior speed, detailing, three-dimensionality, and bass extension."
