New Hifiman Headphone HE-400 is out - Page 364

post #5446 of 6017

I see some talk concerning the HiFiMAN connectors and cables.

I thought it would be appropriate to share ALO Audio's video for those that might benefit from a visual guide.

Am I the only one that connects the cables to the headphone by twisting the tip in, and not the cable so as not to cause twisting of the cable itself? I've done that and it just makes the cable all twisted up.

I kinda go half and half.  I twist the tip in, then twist the entire end once or twice to really tighten it.

Wow they look so hipster.

I plan on getting mine hard wired.  I don't care for the connector at all.

^^How about some details? Pics even...

Not done yet.  Waiting for my Norse cable to arrive.

Ah yes,  looks like an older Norse cable as well.

But he seems to be using the... leather pads?! eek.gif

 

I thought everybody hated on those!

Would it be possible to DIY the hifiman connectors into mini XLR as opposed to either hard wiring or the normal connectors?

Sounds like a fun little project I might undertake on the HE-400 when I get time over the holidays.

Hey there

 

my he-400 just arrived.  after I plugged them into my amp there was a very quick snap-crackel-pop type sound coming from both sides.  

 

is this going to happen every time i plug them in?

 

also, any advice for someone who's brand new to planar magnetic anything? 

 

thanks.  

post #5458 of 6017

If the amp was already on, that's normal with audio electronics.

 

As for advice with planar magnetics.  There's nothing inherently too different about them as far as usage.  Just treat them normally.

Shouldn't really matter if the amp is on or not, just keep the volume down.  What you're hearing is a brief spike of current, exciting the drivers.  If the volume is at 0, this will minimize the spike.
