HIFIMAN HE-400i is a full-size planar magnetic headphone intended for high performance listening in the home or studio. The HE-400i is 30% lighter than comparable headphones allowing the listener to comfortably enjoy music for hours on end with minimal listener fatigue. Along with the lighter weight, a newly-designed headband with an improved pressure pattern is a key to the phone’s best-in-class comfort. The FocusPad, new beveled hybrid ear pads made of pleather and velour, provide both increased comfort and improved sound quality. The gloss ear cups are finished in a smoky gray, Mylar finish that gives the HE-400i a striking contemporary look. It is only $499 MSRP.
