Reference Headphones Have World's Thinnest Diaphragm: Luxurious HiFiMAN HE1000 V2 Boasts Asymmetrical Planar Driver, "Window Shade" System, Sublime Sound, Many New Upgrades
HiFiMAN's multi-award-winning reference-class headphones just became even more formidable in the form of the HE1000 V2. Boasting the world's thinnest diaphragm – measured in nano-thickness, invisible to the naked eye, and simultaneously high-strength and low mass – HE1000 V2 delivers a lightning-fast dynamic response that mirrors that of live music. An advanced asymmetrical planar driver offers near-perfect reproductions of recordings while removing distortion and preventing harmful reflections. HiFiMAN's patented "Window Shade" system optimizes the open-back design, meets the need for driver protection, and provides chasm-wide, IMAX-realistic soundstages outside your head. And we're just getting started.
In comparison to the original model, HE1000 V2 boasts thicker, asymmetrical-shaped ear pads that follow the form of ear cups as well as an updated headband that accommodates nearly every head size on the planet. An upgraded cable designed for wide-frequency range and low-end emphasis, slimmer and sleeker ear cups, and reimagined polyester ear-pad surfaces that increase sonic transparency all pile on the benefits afforded HE1000 V2. HiFiMAN even managed to decrease the overall weight to a feather-light 14.8 oz. for supreme comfort. Three different types of plugs for easy switching and connectivity are also included. Take advantage of Music Direct's Satisfaction Guarantee and hear why HE1000 V2 outperforms the original model that won an Editors' Choice Award from The Absolute Sound and the Cost-No-Object Headphone of the Year Award from Hi-Fi+. These are seriously amazing ‘phones!
“The HE1000 V2 offers a quick, extended, open, and highly detailed treble without a trace of peakiness.”
