HE1000 SE features planar magnetic technology to produce sound. In contrast to typical dynamic drivers, HiFiMan headphones use an ultra thin film in proximity to a magnet for sound that is detailed and lifelike with outstanding clarity. Thinner films tend to yield quicker response, high dynamic range and lower distortion for natural audio reproduction.
In the HE1000 SE, the nanometre thin film diaphragm is a breakthrough core technology developed by HiFi Man and first to be used in headphone application. The film, when viewed from the side, seems invisible to the naked eye. Working with this advanced material is very difficult yet the successful incorporation of this film because the HE1000se’s planar driver is the basis of its outstanding sound.
