Drop + HIFIMAN HE4XX Planar Magnetic Headphones

Jan 20, 2022
Today we are excited to introduce our first closed back headphone with long time collaborator HIFIMAN. While HIFIMAN is widely known for its planar dynamic drivers they have recently started to branch out into more dynamic drivers featuring their proprietary topology diaphragms.  Our aim was to incorporate these drivers into an accessible closed back offering.  With an acoustically tuned chamber, the headphone has an engaging, lively sound with a rather spacious soundstage given its closed back design.  The result was a nice sonic contrast to our other HIFIMAN collaborations such as the X4 and 4XX which are on the darker warmer side.  The added efficiency also makes it easy to pair with portable dac/amp combos or straight from a laptop for versatility.  We look forward to kicking off the new year with the new HE-R7DX from HIFIMAN.

Bought these totally on a whim with one of the discount codes. Didn't have the highest hopes but very pleasantly surprised. Really enjoying them.

I have a question. Is the headband glued to the cans structure? I have read that this kind of hifiman headbands had some problems with that.

DaeronicusSince this looks to be their classic old style headband, you should be able to unscrew the cups from the gimbals and attach them to the other two style Hifiman headbands (the "comfort" headband and the "hybrid" headband).

WhatugotmanHey, John. As an FYI to readers here, I checked out and was gonna get John's modded R7DX (based on his post above) until I saw some of his other higher-quality offerings and ultimately landed a custom 53mm dynamic closed back that I'm very pleased with...pretty much end-game home-office cans for me, with quality/comfy build, massive bass, clear detail in mids & highs, on-point imaging, and wide stage for a closed back. Also appreciated his friendly & prompt service. Definitely worth checking out.

Headfonics review of the He-R7DX "The Drop + HIFIMAN HE-R7DX is a bit large, but otherwise, I would consider it a solid performer overall. It offers a relaxed placement in the midrange vocal experience and it doesn’t require a powerful amplifier to get the best out of it."

I previously felt these were definitely worth it at the asking price of 150. These are a great value at 100. I think the initial reviews and measurements kind of deterred many people away from these.

all these months later, i gotta say i prefer these over my open back cans, which admittedly aren't spectacular or anything. (PC-37X and HE-X4's). But for the current sale price of $100, wowzers the value here is stellar. I am mainly a IEM guy, so maybe it is a noise isolation thing. Some dekoni nuggets on the headband are necessary.

For what they cost I think they GREAT
Used with: MacBook Pro Samsung S9 Sound: I listen to a wide variety of music, including classical, rock, and rap. I used the headphones for 30 days to get a solid feel for them.  The headphones have a very flat response. Not much bass or high end. They are also not muddy or super crisp. To get closer to the sound I was looking for I needed to use a EQ. Fit: The headphones are too big for my head on the smallest setting.  That said, the padding on the headphones is comfortable and my ears did not get too hot.  Additionally, they are not too heavy, but wearing them for eight hours straight was not ideal.  This could be better if they fit my head better Build quality: The headphones feel solid. The materials used are not premium but they are solid.

Any comparisons to original Aeon Flow Closed? I know they are in different leagues, but I'm curious as to differences in sound signature. Thanks.

I can confirm the soundstage and imaging indeed is amazing. As for sub-bass it's not the same level as Denon/Fostex but it's CLOSE. Like I was using D5200 and now using R7DX and not at any point do I feel like I'm missing out on bass. Mid and treble are decent but it's just amazing how open this headphone sound.
