“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.”

Light Weight

Designed for extended listening sessions, the HE400se is 30% lighter than comparable magnetic headphones, weighing only 13 ¾ oz. Adding to its comfort is a newly-designed headband and beveled hybrid earpads that also contribute to the headphone’s performance. With this design, varying thicknesses conform to the human skull, almost as if it is custom-tailored to each listener’s head.
