Essential Info

Founded by Dr. Fang Bian in 2007, HiFiMAN is widely regarded as one of the leading manufacturers of high performance headphones and portable audio products. They are especially known for its critically-acclaimed Planar-Magnetic headphones that feature state-of-the-art driver technology.

The HE-6 is HiFiMAN's flagship planar magnetic designed headphones and its 83.5dB sensitivity is higher than similar designs and allows it to be driven with a powerful headphone amplifier. The HE-6 offers impressive combination of low frequency extension, pitch definition, and dynamic clout. The bass reproduction from these oversized cans is clear and easily noticeable if you listen to good recordings highlighting either acoustic or electric bass. These headphones feature over-sized drivers, a high gloss finish, soft leather ear pads already installed on the headphones and a replacement pair of velour ear pads. Once you have experienced headphones of this quality, it will be difficult to switch back to most other headphones because you will realize that the finest levels of detail are effortlessly captured by the HE-6's while most other headphones cannot compete.

  • More Info

    Planar-Magnetic - Like a standard dynamic headphone, planar magnetic headphones use the magnetic field around a conductor that has electrical current flowing through it to drive the diaphragm. Like an electrostatic driver, the diaphragm of a planar magnetic speaker is a thin sheet of flexible transparent film, but unlike an electrostatic driver, the film has very thin, flat electrical conductors in it. An array of magnets is placed in front of and behind the diaphragm such that the conductors are immersed in a very even field of magnetic flux. When current is passed through the conductors, the magnetic field created by the current flow interacts with the iso-dynamic field created by permanent magnets, causing the conductors, and therefore the diaphragm, to move and generate sound. Because of the conductors, the entire surface area of the diaphragm is used, thus reducing distortion that conventional headphones deliver.
