1.has an over-the-ear form
HiFiMAN HE-400
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-400
With a detachable cable you can use alternative cables, and if the cable is pulled it will pop out instead of breaking.


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.cable length


A long cable ensures more freedom of movement.
5.has a straight plug
HiFiMAN HE-400
A straight plug is better when the jack is on the top or bottom of your player.
6.has an open-back design
HiFiMAN HE-400
The device is designed in a way that allows sound to go out through the back of the ear cups, which usually have vents or perforations. This design provides very natural and accurate sound.

Sound quality

1.lowest frequency


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


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


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

35 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.


1.has a 3.5mm male connector
HiFiMAN HE-400
A standard 3.5mm male connector is suitable for use with all MP3 players and computer sound cards.
