You spoke and HIFIMAN listened. The popular HE400i is now being shipped with 2.5mm plug-in connectors rather than the traditional "screw-on" type that HIFIMAN has used for years. Performance is identical and there is no change in price.
HE400i: Easy-to-Drive Full-size Planar Magnetic Headphone
HE400S delivers all the lifelike clarity, detail, extended bass and wide sound stage that audiophiles have come to expect from HIFIMAN.
Created by the innovator of the planar magnetic technology, the HIFIMAN HE400i is a high quality, full-size planar magnetic headphone created for critical listening at home or in studio. The new generation headphone becomes more lightweight with largely improved sensitivity.
Planar magnetic and electrostatic drivers are similar in regards to low distortion and high signal input. Compared to the electrostatic driver, the planar magnetic technology uses a mroe massive diaphragm that is able to move very quickly in a coherent and uniform way. The planar magnetic headphone gives excellent transient response and a sound quality almost equal to that of an electrostatic product.
