Head-Direct HiFiMAN HE-500 Headphones

techPowerUp!
21 June 2011
  • Summary: The recent success of HiFiMAN is definitely deserved. Not only are they pushing the upper limits for the level of sound quality achievable with a set of headphones, they are also largely responsible for the revival of the old yet obviously interesting planar magnetic technology. The HE-500s are a real feat of engineering. When we first heard the enormously power hungry HE-6s we did not believe that a quite efficient version could be made to sound almost the same.
  • Pros: Performance, Comfortable, Excellent build quality, Price / Performance ratio, Old fashioned yet stylish look
  • Cons: Expensive, Amplifier required, Looks might not appeal to all, Not that portable after all, Way too heavy cable, Pad issue (they are being reworked, an update will be made once they arrive)
