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
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.
A cardboard box. That’s all you need to know.
Summary: The HE-300s are one solid dynamic HiFi headphone , like most HiFiMANs I have tried "Treble" is the focus , very clean clinical and articulate but at the same time its not metallic or plastic sounding , Dr Biang sure has impressed me , before I get on I have to preface some things
1) The HE-300 has...
Pros: Unreal Treble extension for the price , Great Clarity , Spectacular Construction , Price , Speed for a dynamic , Fantastic Air , Highly detailed
Summary: The HE-300s are one of those rare occasions where good performance meets a very attractive pricepoint. Based on the performance these headphones deliver, they are sure to become a massive success. At $299 these are a steal, pure and simple.
Pros: Excellent performance, Quality design, Pleasing sound signature, Easy to drive well, Semi-stylish looks, Comes with nice storage / transportation box, Comfortable
Cons: Looks might not appeal to all, Way too heavy cable
