    Hifiman Edition X

    HiFiMAN recommends not driving the HEX with a large power amplifier. It pairs better with a modest amp. Chord Mojo and HEX is a very nice combination.   Peter

    Hifiman Edition X

    What Fang intended to say was that Edition X is a flagship headphone for HiFiMAN not the flagship. HE1000 of course is "the" flagship at least for now. :)   Peter

    Hifiman he-400i Impressions and Discussion

    Yes, that is the reason for the change. Slightly more open, better soundstage and more detail. Also a little lighter without the backing plate.   Peter

    Hifiman he-400i Impressions and Discussion

    Robert, I would describe the output as too loud to be sitting next to someone on an airplane but they will not be audible in another room. The output drops off rapidly as you move away from the phones.

    HiFiMAN @ StereoExchange Headphone Event Thursday March 19 in New York City

      Thanks for asking. I was with Fang today at Stereo Exchange for a short while setting up for tomorrow's event. I did not get to hear the latest HE1000s because there were too many people in line! However the fit and finish are excellent and it was apparent that Fang and company have been busy...

    Hifiman: Terrible experience with RE-400i and the company's customer service

    That is incorrect. HiFiMAN has had a U.S. office for sales and service for years. Our current office is in Newark Delaware and the phone # is (201) 443-4626.    Peter Hoagland

    HiFiMAN @ StereoExchange Headphone Event Thursday March 19 in New York City

    HE1000 would have similar requirements as HE560. It is moderate efficiency but needs a robust amplifier to get the most from it.    Will you be able to join us at the Stereo Exchange event?    Peter

    HiFiMAN @ StereoExchange Headphone Event Thursday March 19 in New York City

    Oh yes. What we had at CES and in NYC was still a prototype. Fang and his team have been working diligently to improve the HE1000 and make it as good as possible. What Fang will have at Stereo Exchange will certainly be farther along but I suspect there will be more work to be done. Sonically...

    HiFiMAN @ StereoExchange Headphone Event Thursday March 19 in New York City

    I don't think the HE1000 will be production version at Stereo Exchange however Fang has done a lot of work on it since CES so it will be much improved and certainly closer to the production version.    Peter

    Hifiman HE-400i and HE-560: From CES to Pre-Launch

    Yes, HE-300, HE-400 and HE-500 are all officially discontinued but they are still available in many places.    HE-300 is a dynamic headphone that was already a good value at $249 MSRP and a fantastic buy at its closeout price of $149.   Peter

    I just heard from Fang. The blemishes on the yokes were caused by a packaging issue rubbing against them in shipment. So it happened after HiFiMAN shipped it.   The cable connector is an issue that should have been caught.    Anyway, Fang is involved and we'll keep you posted. Thanks again...

    Hifiman HE-400i and HE-560: From CES to Pre-Launch

    HE-300, HE-400 and HE-500 have officially been discontinued. A few dealers bought heavy on our closeout and still have HE-400 and HE-500 at great prices. In fact, I spoke with Todd at Todd the Vinyl Junkie today in Montana and he still has several HE-500s.   HE-560 is doing great and we expect...

    If the HE-400s were a "mistake", HiFiMAN hopes to make many more mistakes just like that. HE-400 was a hugely popular headphone.    Peter
