BELLMORE, NY, March 4, 2021 – HIFIMAN, the leader in high fidelity personal audio, will soon ship a powerful new planar magnetic headphone that offers outstanding audio at a mass market price.
The new HE400se ($149) is an open-back planar magnetic headphone that employs single-ended drivers to deliver a wide soundstage with accurate spatial imaging. With increased efficiency to 91dB, the HE400se performs as well with smartphones and tablets as it does with a full-size amplifier.
“HIFIMAN is famous for developing planar magnetic headphones that bring real-world full-range sonics to personal audio,” said Dr. Fang Bian, President and CEO, HIFIMAN Electronics. “The HE400se is the result of our tapping our deep background in planar magnetic design to create a headphone with a wide soundstage and detailed imaging at a price that is within reach of nearly every music lover with a smart portable device, no matter if the source is a high-res. audio player or a common smartphone.”
Designed for extended listening sessions, the HE400se is 30% lighter than comparable magnetic headphones, weighing a mere 13 ¾ oz. Adding to its comfort is a newly-designed headband and beveled hybrid earpads that also contribute to the headphone’s exceptional performance. With this design, varying thicknesses conform to the human skull, almost as if it is custom-tailored to each listener’s head.
The HE400se will be available in April at a suggested retail price of $149. It will be available from Amazon and HIFIMAN’s online store, http://store.hifiman.com/. For additional information, visit https://hifiman.com.
HIFIMAN was founded by Dr. Fang Bian in 2007 and, two years later, introduced the acclaimed HM-801, the first digital audio player to feature true audiophile-grade performance from a pocket-size form factor. Since then, HIFIMAN, under Dr. Bian’s guidance, has developed an extensive selection of no-holds-barred headphones, digital audio players, and headphone amplifiers that are consistently recognized as the best in class, offering performance that belies their price point, no matter the cost.
