Review Highlights:
For such a low price this headphone deserves 5 stars for sheer bargain prowess! So long as this is plugged into a decent amplifier the sound opens up and is terrific! By contrast, anyone expecting to plug this into their cell phone or laptop computer is missing the point, without decent amplification this headphone will not sound as great as it can(more likely dull, actually!). I am driving this through an IBasso Bushmaster D14, which in turn is amped via an RSA Mustang P51 on high gain. I find this combination with the HE4XX heavenly, also because the P51 almost completely eliminates the Sabre DAC's glare. So my recommendation is to buy the HE-4XX, but only if you drive this through a decent DAC/AMP combo!

Good sound quality, poorly manufactured
Pros: These sound bright and airy out of the box, and great with minimal equalizing. Cons: Very common manufacturing defect where sound cuts off on one side. Unfortunately mine started exhibiting this problem a few weeks after warranty expired.

Crystal clear comfort
I love these headphones. My daily driver for hours on end. Crystal clear transients and satisfying accurate bass. If you havent heard these you're missing out. I can only detract one star because i wear them too much and need to order new earpads!

Not Very Durable
I'll admit, I can be somewhat hard on my things, and that might have contributed to these headphones breaking on me within only a couple of weeks / a few uses, but I have also been using my AKG M220 studio monitors as desktop PC headphones since February of 2016, and the only thing I've broken on those is the detachable XLR-to-3.5mm cable that comes with it (I ordered a 3rd-party replacement cable off of either amazon or ebay, can't remember now, and haven't had any issues with them since) in the 7 years that I've had my M220's, so these HiFimans are on the delicate side.

Great entry planar headphones
First pair of planar headphones I've ever gotten. These served me well! As expected with planar the bass response is fast and punchy. Although it does lack a little in terms of resolution and clarity, it's still decent as a daily driver. The only downside is the quality of the headband as it snapped on me and I had to find a replacement. The faux leather pads broke down a little too fast imo, which needed replacement after some time as well.

Punches above it’s weight!
I have been a huge fan of planar headphones since my B&O planar headphones back in the 70’s. Best audio $ I ever spent. Mine are actually HE-4XX which I suspect may have sliighty better build quality. I am listening to Tool - Fear Inoculum in FLAC on them as I write this.

Good sound - bad build quality.
Sound is great but the earpieces keep breaking off of the headband - the screws between the plastic earpiece connector and the headband are quite small and stripped themselves quickly. I've reglued it multiple times but it's become very annoying. Still pretty good for the price.

Heavy, but good sound
They have decent bass and do well at high volume. A nice set of headphones for the price, but I like Grado SR80's better all around.

These headphones are great.
Very impressed with these headphones, first pair of planar magnetic ones I had listened to or owned, very delicate and detailed in the highs, nice bass, good midrange. What more to say, I would highly recommend them, they work well off of an audio interface aswell, are louder than some dynamic Sennheisers I own running off it. Great value for the price, May get another pair.

Great while they lasted
Great set of entry planars. My pair were part of the older run so the slider part broke away from the headband after 1.5 years of use.
