Revolutionary in design and engineering, the diaphragm in nanometer thickness of the HiFi Man HE1000 SE Planar Magnetic Headphones is extremely low in mass, which helps it achieve a faster response rate and lower distortion.

New flagship planar headphones brings recordings to life with outstanding lifelike clarity that is sure to please the most demanding listener. HiFi Man HE1000 SE Headphones draw on the well-respected HE1000v2 with a driver that's 6dB more economical permitting use with transportable devices. It uses a diluent driver as well as an all-new magnet structure. With the 96dB sensitivity, the result is all the detail and air of the HE1000v2 with greater instant dynamic sound.

Great Build

The metal structure craft is achieved through CNC milling and hand-polishing. To satisfy the high standards expected, the surface is fastidiously applied by accomplished craftsmen. Ergonomically, the HE1000 SE is exceptionally inviting, because of a specially designed band that has a gentle arch structure for stability and sturdiness for years of usage with no degradation in fit.

Planar Magnetic

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.

Window Shade System

HiFi Man uses an Open Back style for very best sound. With HE1000 SE, a proprietary “Window Shade” is exactly structured to gain better openness in the headphone design. It keeps the sound waves from second refraction to avoid unwanted vibration and distortion. Result is a wider soundstage, outstanding imaging and great clarity. Aesthetically, the “Window Shade” also provides a distinct, high-tech look to HE1000.

Nanometer Diaphragm

Based on seven years of R&D into getting the optimum balance between high driver potency and high sound quality. The innovative style of the double-sided, asymmetrical magnetic circuit is the excellent pairing of the diaphragm in Nanometre thickness and its Magnetic partner.

The advanced magnet system aims to be acoustically clear, dramatically reducing wave diffusion turbulence that degrades the integrity of the soundwaves. This reduces distortion for purer and greater harmonious sound. In contrast to a standard magnet, the special form of the subtle magnet allows the waves to pass through with no interference generated.

The Cord

The HE1000 SE package includes 3 differing kinds of plugs: mini 6.35mm, 3.5mm and 4-pin XLR enabling use with a large array of kit. The plugs are simple to change and quickly connected to dissimilar cables and amplifiers.

HE1000 SE uses crystalline copper and crystalline silver wire customised for wide frequency range, low signal loss and increased emphasis on the low end for quality audio. The cables are user-replaceable and have channel orientation for left and right.
