Design

1.has an over-the-ear form
HiFiMAN HE-4
HiFiMAN HE-6
Comfortable full-size form with earcups that fully enclose your ears. This model is loved for its increased sound isolation and the fact that it won't leak sound to your neighbors. It offers potential for maximum bass and loudness levels.
2.has a detachable cable
HiFiMAN HE-4
HiFiMAN HE-6
With a detachable cable you can use alternative cables, and if the cable is pulled it will pop out instead of breaking.
3.weight

350g

502g

We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.
4.travel bag is included
HiFiMAN HE-4
HiFiMAN HE-6
The device comes with its own special case or pouch, which is useful for safe transportation.
5.cable length

3m

2m

A long cable ensures more freedom of movement.
6.has a straight plug

A straight plug is better when the jack is on the top or bottom of your player.

Sound quality

1.lowest frequency

10Hz

8Hz

The lowest frequency at which the device produces audio. The lower the low-frequency response, the stronger and juicier the bass.
2.highest frequency

60000Hz

65000Hz

The highest frequency at which device produces audio. The higher the high-frequency response, the clearer and crispier the treble.
3.sound pressure level

86dB/mW

83.5dB/mW

Devices with a higher sound pressure level are generally louder when supplied with any given audio source.
4.impedance

38 Ohms

50 Ohms

Impedance is the device’s electrical resistance to the current being pushed through it. The lower the impedance, the easier it is to get higher volume and requires less power.

Connectivity

1.has a 3.5mm male connector
HiFiMAN HE-4
HiFiMAN HE-6
A standard 3.5mm male connector is suitable for use with all MP3 players and computer sound cards.
