The HiFiMan HE Adapter box connects HE-4, HE-5LE and HE-6 model headphones to an integrated amp, power amp or receiver via the speaker terminal inputs, situated on the front, and XLR outputs on the back of the unit. With a compact and portable build, it is a cost effective solution that enables you to enjoy your HE headphones with a broad range of components.
Due to the orthodynamic technology, the HE-6s, HE-5LE and HE-4 can be difficult to drive so a quality headphone amp is crucial to get the most out of these reference headphones. The adapter is suitable for connection to a speaker amplifier and protects both headphones and amps from short circuits and power fluctuations. Tube amplifiers and older transistor amplifiers can also be used without taking damage.
It is not advisable to convert the XLR to a 6.35mm jack connector on headphones with symmetric cables as this may damage balanced amplifiers.
