Like a glass of ice cold water on a hot summer day, it doesn't get better than finally getting to listen to the HIFIMAN HE 1000 after such a long wait. Our initial impression is WOW! The sleek and sexy lines of the headphones have a decidedly Art Deco feel to them. The fit, finish and quality of the materials are second to none. On the sound side, we are very impressed as they are super detailed, big soundstage, good bass and superbly detailed (yes! I said it twice). Needless to say, our initial impressions are extremely satisfying. Stay tuned next week for a detailed review. In the meantime head over to sonicelectronix.com and check them out!
