Head-Direct HiFiMAN HE-300 Headphones

 

The HE-300s are one of those rare occasions where good performance meets a very attractive pricepoint. Based on the performance these headphones deliver, they are sure to become a massive success. At $299 these are a steal, pure and simple. They best...

Excellent performance, Quality design, Pleasing sound signature, Easy to drive well, Semi-stylish looks, Comes with nice storage / transportation box, Comfortable

Looks might not appeal to all, Way too heavy cable

Extremely well made cans for the money

 

I bought these at less than half retail on a whim from Audio Advisor, looking to replace my aging Sennheiser HD 580's. Look at the picture...these are VERY NICELY made headphones! All aluminum components, with a steel headband, covered with...

Build quality

Heavy, clamps too tightly...cables noisy (pick up and amplify any movement).

The Crystal Clear HiFiMAN (REV.3)

 

The HE-300s are one solid dynamic HiFi headphone , like most HiFiMANs I have tried "Treble" is the focus , very clean clinical and articulate but at the same time its not metallic or plastic sounding , Dr Biang sure has impressed me , before I get on I...

Unreal Treble extension for the price , Great Clarity , Spectacular Construction , Price , Speed for a dynamic , Fantastic Air , Highly detailed

Recessed Bass , 3-8K spike (REV.3) , Poor driver placement - Bass rattling , Stock pads , no side adjustment , Microphonics (Cable Noise)

Great warm and clear cans

 

Introduction? I got the HE-300 for $150 without knowing what I was really getting. I was on the verge of purchasing the HD 598 instead, but my life needed some unknowing excitement…I guess. Packaging A cardboard box. That's all you need to know. The...

Nicely balanced, accurate bass. Amazing mids. Unintrusive yet detailed highs.

Soundstage could be better. Clamping at first. Microphonics.

[Impression] HifiMan HE300

 

First, I'll like to thank HifiMan for the HE-300 sample. For the last couple of years, Fang @ HifiMan has brought a lot of attention to the company's line of full size headphones by releasing some of the best planar magnetic headphone there ever are....

Euphonic and easy going sound, Price, Packaging,

Warmish sound might not suit every genre.

Top-class product for $249

 

Information : Hifiman / Head-Direct was kind enough to give me a review sample of the HE-300. Please take note that the fact that this was given to me for free will not affect my bias for this review. Equipment used : Amplifiers : Onkyo TX-SR308 /...

Build quality, Great bass, Smooth mids and treble, forgiving of poor quality recordings, incredible packaging, not demanding with amplification

Tight clamp for my head, somewhat stiff cable, pad locking system, lacks technicalities

Nice warm, lush sound at an attractive price

Will for sure be too warm and bassy for some
