Design

1.has an over-the-ear form
HiFiMAN HE-6
HiFiMAN RE-600S
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-6
HiFiMAN RE-600S
With a detachable cable you can use alternative cables, and if the cable is pulled it will pop out instead of breaking.
3.weight

502g

13.7g

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-6
HiFiMAN RE-600S
The device comes with its own special case or pouch, which is useful for safe transportation.
5.has an in-ear form
HiFiMAN HE-6
HiFiMAN RE-600S
The in-ear device is ultracompact and lightweight, with little or no interference with earrings, spectacles, hats, or hairstyles. It is inserted in the ear canal itself and blocks out a lot of environmental noise. It has stronger bass tones and is unlikely to fall out of the ear.
6.has an L-shaped plug
HiFiMAN HE-6
HiFiMAN RE-600S
An L-shaped plug is better if the jack is on the left or right side of the device, so that the cable isn't bent, and is less likely to break when the device is in your pocket.

Sound quality

1.lowest frequency

8Hz

15Hz

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

65000Hz

22000Hz

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

83.5dB/mW

102dB/mW

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

50 Ohms

16 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-6
HiFiMAN RE-600S
A standard 3.5mm male connector is suitable for use with all MP3 players and computer sound cards.
