  • Summary: Introduction Fang from HiFiMan asked me to review the HE-300 headphones. I have been a big fan of HiFiMan’s planar magnetic headphones. But the HE-300 are not planars – they are dynamic driver headphones.
  • Pros: Nice warm, lush sound at an attractive price
  • Cons: Will for sure be too warm and bassy for some

  • Summary: Information : Hifiman / Head-Direct was kind enough to give me a review sample of the HE-300. Please take note that the fact that this was given to me for free will not affect my bias for this review.
  • Pros: Build quality, Great bass, Smooth mids and treble, forgiving of poor quality recordings, incredible packaging, not demanding with amplification
  • Cons: Tight clamp for my head, somewhat stiff cable, pad locking system, lacks technicalities

  • Summary: Introduction? I got the HE-300 for $150 without knowing what I was really getting. I was on the verge of purchasing the HD 598 instead, but my life needed some unknowing excitement…I guess. Packaging A cardboard box. That’s all you need to know.
  • Pros: Nicely balanced, accurate bass. Amazing mids. Unintrusive yet detailed highs.
  • Cons: Soundstage could be better. Clamping at first. Microphonics.

  • Summary: I bought these at less than half retail on a whim from Audio Advisor, looking to replace my aging Sennheiser HD 580's. Look at the picture...these are VERY NICELY made headphones! All aluminum components, with a steel headband, covered with leather...NICE!
  • Pros: Build quality
  • Cons: Heavy, clamps too tightly...cables noisy (pick up and amplify any movement).

  • Summary: First, I’ll like to thank HifiMan for the HE-300 sample. For the last couple of years, Fang @ HifiMan has brought a lot of attention to the company’s line of full size headphones by releasing some of the best planar magnetic headphone there ever are.
  • Pros: Euphonic and easy going sound, Price, Packaging,
  • Cons: Warmish sound might not suit every genre.

  • Summary: There are a lot of dynamic headphones around on the market, with a very small percent being shared by orthodynamic’s and electrostatics. HiFiMan’s mostly known for their orthodynamic headphones, like the HE-500 & the HE-6.
  • Pros: See updates
  • Cons: See updates

  • Summary: I have these for about two weeks now and I can hardly believe how these have changed during this time. Always when I get new headphones I listen with them and leave other headphones dusting. The only ones that didn't impress me when I got them were HD800. I know sounds odd but that's how it was.
  • Pros: very good mids, comfortable, perfect bass quantity
  • Cons: bass is not as tight
