side of headphone
The HiFiMAN HE1000 v2 is the first headphone to use nanometer grade diaphragms (less than 0.001mm thick) to create a wide-open, striking soundstage.
In the months leading to their release, we've been hearing high praise heaped upon the HiFiMAN HE1000 headphones. They're grabbing impressive headlines in music publications, industry trades, and high-end audio sites. Reviewers are gushing over the uncannily natural sound, and more than one has called the HE1000s the best headphones they've ever heard.
It's easy to believe the hype when you consider the company's rich audio reputation. Previous HiFiMAN models are a big hit among our high-end headphone customers and the music connoisseurs working here at Crutchfield.
Improved planar drivers with extremely thin diaphragms
HiFiMAN and their founder and designer Dr. Fang Bian get credit in the personal audio world for helping popularize and improve planar magnetic technology. Performing their best when powered by a serious headphone amp, Planar drivers use thin, flexible diaphragms with voice coils etched onto their surface. They move rapidly back and forth within a magnetic field. Faster movement means more accurate sound, so the thinner the diaphragm the better.
Well, the nanometer grade diaphragms in the HE1000 are less than 0.001mm thick — or roughly 1/80th the thickness of a human hair! This extraordinarily lightweight structure can start and stop incredibly precisely, so you get clean, natural transients and tight bass. Combine that quick movement with the large driver surface area and your music sounds lifelike, three-dimensional, and finely detailed.
