HiFiMAN HE1000 Planar Magnetic Headphones

Reference Headphones Built With Groundbreaking Nanometer-Thick Diaphragm: HiFiMAN HE1000 Boasts Asymmetrical Magnet Circuit, "Window Shade" System, Sublime Sound, Extreme Comfort

Even the most seductive picture of the HiFiMan HE1000 headphones doesn't do justice to this groundbreaking planar-magnetic model. They sound, look, and are built like no other design in the world. Utilized in the cutting-edge diaphragm, low-mass nanometer-grade material (.000001mm) ensures reference-setting dynamic response that mirrors that of live music. The result of seven years of research, asymmetrical magnetic drivers reduce the size of the inner magnetic array to eliminate reflections, refractions, and distortion, producing lively, physical, powerful, wide-open sound that justifies hyperbolic descriptions. As elegant to hear as it is to see, a patented "Window Shade" grill system optimizes driver protection and maximized open-back performance via immersive soundstages, analytical detail, and sublime resolution. Plus, HE1000'S spa-like comfortability means you won't want to take them off. Even when you're ready for bed. So go ahead. Experience the newest in state-of-the-art for yourself. 100% Music Direct Guaranteed.

Nanotechnology Yields Natural Sound, Asymmetrical Magnetic Circuit Affords Sublime Balance
HiFiMAN is the only headphone brand to fully utilize nanotechnology. HE1000 features the world's first Nanometer-grade-thickness diaphragm, which means it is less than an astonishing 0.001mm thin. Seven years in the making, this breakthrough diaphragm is so thin that when viewed from the side, it is not visible to the naked eye. The incredibly low driver mass produces fast, effortless response with negligible distortion, two key elements to the ultimate goal of natural sound reproduction. To take advantage of the nano-grade driver, HiFiMAN engineers designed an Advanced Asymmetrical Magnetic Circuit that obtains the optimum balance between high driver efficiency and high sound quality. The innovative design of the double-sided, asymmetrical magnetic circuit is the perfect marriage of the nanometer-grade diaphragm and its magnetic partner.

Driver Protection and Optimized Open-Back Performance Via "Window Shade" Grill System
HiFiMAN needed to create a special design solution that provides driver protection, is optimized for an open-back design, and yields the best-possible sound quality. For HE1000, a patented "Window Shade" grill made with premium alloys is precisely structured to gain greater openness in the headphone design. Its openness keeps the sound waves from second refraction to avoid unwanted vibration and distortion. The result is a wider soundstage, outstanding imaging, and remarkable clarity. Aesthetically,the Window Shade Grill also provides a unique, high-tech look to HE1000 and an appropriate complement to its premium alloys and wood trim.

Specially Contoured for Your Head: Asymmetrical Ear Cups and Beveled Hybrid Ear Pads
The premium ear pads are specially designed in an asymmetrical shape that follows the form of the earcups. HE1000's pads are beveled so that they contour to the shape of the user's head for superb comfort and extended listening. This hybrid design has velour on the surface for optimal comfort and sound.

Comfortable, Lightweight, Clever: Headband Enhances Pad Sealing Around Ears and Head
HE1000's headband is the result of clever industrial design. It accommodates the widely varied sizes of people's heads while evenly applying or distributing correct pressure. This provides not only improved comfort but a better seal of the pads around the ears and on the head. The headband combines a special metal alloy with fine calf skin to form a sturdy arch structure. Perforation on the calf skin helps dissipate the heat. For additional comfort, the light mass contributes to lessen the overall weight of the headphone.

Custom-Designed Cable and Three Plugs Also Included
Custom-designed for HE1000, a high-purity, oxygen-free copper (OCC) wire for wide frequency range, low signal loss, and enhanced emphasis on the low end complements a package that also includes three different types of plugs: mini 6.35mm, ¼" 3.5mm, and a 4-pin XLR connector.
