Review : Hifiman HE-400i

Hifiman HE-400i headphones reviewed on by Lieven

Conclusion : 

The HE-400i sells for $499. The sound quality you get in return is impressive and Hifiman has really let the HE-400 evolve in an i(mproved) version that makes you forget about the HE-400 and maybe even the HE-500. You get all the benefits of the orthodynamic drivers: clarity, detail, speed and a black background. You’ll love every single bit of it.

The HE-400i is an incredibly good Mid-Fi headphone that you really should look at if you have this kind of budget available. Sure you will need a good portable player or amplifier to make it sound its best but I’m sure most of you will be using this open back unit at home anyway. The HE-400i is closer to the HE-560 as the HE-400 was to the HE-500 but the HE-560 is still performing at a higher level with a more reference sound.

Another job well done, Hifiman!
