  • 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.
