The Hifiman HE400i is an around ear, open back planar magnetic headphone. HE400i has soft Focus earpads & a comfortable soft flex headband for a great fit & long wearing comfort. These are a glossy dark grey finish. HE400i include a 1.5m cable wrapped in nylon weave with an L shaped 3.5mm plug. Packaging is first class, in an impressive vinyl covered clamshell case (the best way for us to remove the headphones was to tip over the case and remove the headphones along with the top of the foam packing).
For a high quality affordable dac, the new iFi nano Black Label is an excellent match, from a computer or phone.
The HE400i provide many of the strengths of Hifiman’s pricier planar magnetic headphones – great clarity and separation of instruments and vocals, clear treble without sibilance and tight, deep, powerful bass response from the large, fast drivers. There is a clear, black background during quiet points / between instruments that good planars excel at providing.
HE400i are a great value at the current price, which will not last long, with the new model on the way in December.
