HiFiMAN HE-400i - Magneto Static Headphones
The HiFiMAN HE-400i is not just the successor to the highly successful HE-400, which is no longer manufactured and sold. The HE-400i is basically a complete redesign with the aim to offer even better sound quality at a reduced weight and greater comfort. This is managed across the board: The new magnetostatic Drivers are now only driven by the rear magnet, thus allowing a more natural sound. The weight is reduced to 375 g and the completely redesigned headband allows a comfortable and stable fit without fatigue.
the weight reduction was made possible by a new leadership of the aluminum interconnects. Using a novel adhesive process reduces the weight of the membranes, making them show less internal damping and easier to drive. The crux of protecting a lighter diaphragm from reflections have the engineers solved masterfully by skillful damping. However, the HE-400i is optimized for a little more efficiency and to a somewhat more restrained, warmer vote in contrast to HU-560 towards. Therefore, it can now be easily driven with the vast majority of smartphones and media players and just play rock and pop hereby very well.
The height adjustment is now screened and has an extended scope. The headband is made of leather and the headband is formed of flexible steel. Also new are the tapered ear cups, which have a larger opening in the version for Europe. They are made of artificial leather, wherein the bearing surface is made of velor. The application here is compatible with the older HiFiMAN earpads.
The new cable is symmetrical and consists of a combination of very fine strands of monocrystalline copper and silver. It is now covered with a solid layer of fabric, the microphonic effects suppresses very effectively. As standard a gilded 3.5 mm jack plug is installed in angled form. An adapter to 6.35 mm jack is included. Since one assumes at HiFiMAN that the vast majority of users will use this headset at desk or on the road, it was decided at HiFiMAN for a 1.5 m long cable. The famous Mini Coax connector on the other side of the cable are now slightly tilted forward, so that any problems can also stiff cable. The new design allows the ear cups 180 ° to rotate about the axis.
The manufacturer recommends headphone amplifier with an output power of 0.3 watts per channel or more. A drive with less output power is no problem, however, is certain limitations in the bass control of the deepest layers. The HE-400i needs good 150 hours break-in period until the full sound potential is reached. New releases of headphones sounds more crystalline, which, however, with increasing operating time ever disappears.
