Next he list of best planar magnetic heaphones, from the HE-400x series, the HiFiMAN HE400S in 2015 has become the cheapest flatbed magnetic headset among HiFiMAN headphones products. The idea behind the HE-400S is to provide a high-quality headset at an affordable price. The HiFiMAN HE400S is nothing special on the market, but its performance-to-price ratio makes it a suitable headset for testing.
The package of the HiFiMAN HE400S is as simple as it comes with it. The headset is packed in a cardboard box, it feels sturdy, and can also be used to keep the headphones secure. Inside the box, you get the HiFiMAN HE400S wrapped in foam, cable (1.5m), a 6.3mm to 3.5mm adapter, a warranty card (in Chinese), a HiFiMAN card and an owner’s manual owned.
HiFiMAN HE400S is an in-ear headset. The texture of the headset is fine, but the materials used in the construction leave less than desired. With the exception of a metal headband and a protein leather headband, most of the HE400S’s material is made of plastic. The HiFiMAN HE400S headband has the same style as the HE-400i and HE-560 headbands. The headband has an excellent adjustment mechanism and has a number of settings to suit different head sizes. The metal strap also holds the earcups together and provides a headphone grip.
Plastic is used in the housing of the earcups, and the metal mesh panels protect the headphone drivers from the sides. This plastic has a glossy silver color, which helps to flatter the look of the HE400S. I have read many reviews criticizing the quality of materials used on the HiFiMAN HE400S. While I do agree that some parts such as the rim that connects the headband to the earcups need to be more sturdy, in general, the plastic used appears to be of good quality and to reduce weight. overall headset.
The HiFiMAN HE400S is a very comfortable headset. This is partly due to the weight and design of the ear cups and pads. The earbuds are padded with foam and covered with velcro. The patch provides a breathable surface, keeping the ear cushions from getting too hot over time. The earbud openings are also large enough to accommodate most of the ears. Also for those interested in modifying earbuds, the Focus A pads are good and deliver not only improved comfort but also improved audio performance, especially bass.
Finally, for comfort, let’s take a look at the weight, headband, and grip force of the headphones. The comfortable headband and felt-cloth headband have done an excellent job of distributing the headphones’ weight evenly without creating hot spots even after long sessions. There are six tuning options on the headset, suitable for most head sizes. The clamping force is not strong enough to cause pain, but enough that the headset does not fall off when in use.
