Hi-FiMan HE300

Larry T, Crutchfield

  • Summary: These headphones are truly one of these best values in all of audio. The fit and finish are second to none. They are extremely comfortable to wear, even for extended periods of time. I would characterize these as very neutral, and very very organic and musical. They will definitely benefit from a nice headphone amp. I would NOT hesitate to say if you are looking for a great value, reasonably priced, great performing set of headphones......BUY THESE!!!!
  • Pros: Fit & Finish, comfort, outstanding sound
  • Cons: Absolutely NONE

  • 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. The first revisions came with a wooden box that looked rather sexy, but HifiMAN has chosen against it for its second and third revision, instead giving you a silver cable that will make a sound if you even think about...
  • Pros: Nicely balanced, accurate bass. Amazing mids. Unintrusive yet detailed highs.
  • Cons: Soundstage could be better. Clamping at first. Microphonics.

  • 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. But, what if HiFiMan were to make a dynamic headphone, one that could be directly compared to more popular headphones like the K702 & the HD650? Would they share the same sound signature, or would a new dynamic king arise from the shadows?

  • 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

  • Summary: 1) HE-500 sounds darker and smoother than the HE-300. Not the other way around. IMHO. 2) HE-300 articulates better than HE-500 and for some, the HE-300 will feel like fresh air / an opened window to the music compared with the HE-500 3) HE-300 has a bass impact the excels the K70x. They are worlds apart.
  • Pros: Light, comfort and the most important: All-rounder headphone for music generes
  • Cons: Could be too big for some sculls

  • 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.  While they look similar to the other HiFiMan headphones, their similarity is really only by look – they are MUCH lighter than the planar series.
  • 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.   Equipment used :       Amplifiers : Onkyo TX-SR308 / iBasso T4 / Meier Porta Corda III       Sources : iPod classic (line out) / Samsung BD-D5300 / Meier Porta Corda III (USB DAC)      Other headphones used :  Grado SR325i   EDIT (1/1/2012) : I have a new amp / DAC,...
  • 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: 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. However, the HE-300 is the company’s first entry to the full size dynamic headphone – perhaps a challenge Fang sat for himself to release a (*price wise) class leading dynamic headphone.
  • Pros: Euphonic and easy going sound, Price, Packaging,
  • Cons: Warmish sound might not suit every genre.
