Product Description
Many headphone companies have tried their hand at planar magnetic drivers, but none have done it quite like HIFIMAN. The result of founder Dr. Fang’s PhD research at Columbia University, its driver technology has landed the company in TIME, Forbes, and CNET’s “The Audiophiliac,” and won it the CES Editors’ Choice Award Read More

Hifiman is selling the H400i 2020 for 169USD. Which is only 9USD more so the Drop aspect isn't really there anymore. These headphones were being sold cheaper than 160USD before which should be the price. The 180USD list price is too much considering Hifiman sell similar ones for cheaper

Anyone know for vocal distance, which has the closest and upfront female vocal? I listen to a lot of female rock, acoustic and pop songs. HE4XX or HD6XX or HD58X? I'm reading conflicting opinions between HE4XX and HD6XX, some say HE4XX is closer and some say HD6XX is closer, I wonder if it could be the difference in amps that result in different opinion. I'm planning to pick up one as my more serious open headphone lol (previously tried Philips SHP9500 and vocal is too far). Current headphone is Denon AH-D2000. Thanks!

Purely my opinion, I can't tell the difference between closeness of the vocals on both(Got kinda curious myself). If anything, it's just different. (Or maybe I am not that sensitive to the difference. I am using a female vocal, JPOP/GAME tragic song for comparison btw) To me, the separation of 6xx might have caused the vocals to sound further for some, while the thickness of the 4xx might have "blocked"(maybe) out the sound to make it feel further for some others too. Finally for me, that thickness i mentioned in 4xx might have made the vocals somewhat slightly stronger.(maybe not closer, but louder in some sense.) PS: Sorry I am just terrible at audio terminologies.

LOL no worries, I think I understand. As long it's louder then it's fine. I think I adjust overall listening volume based on vocal volume, so when vocal is too quiet I end up making everything louder to compensate and end up being too loud. So in general if vocal is too quiet then it's a problem for me. But if they're at least about the same or 4XX being a little bit louder I think I'm ok with that lol. Thanks again for helping me out!

Anyone know if this will fit large head? I've actually had headphones that didn't fit on me on max extension before. For example Beyer DT880 will not fit my head at max setting. Master and Dynamics headphones also don't fit well. Denon / Fostex headphones are great because they can expand to ridiculous sizes. I am currently using Denon AH-D2000 and I want to give open headphone a try. Previously had the Philips SHP9500 and wasn't impressed (vocal too recessed). I'm thinking to give open headphone another chance. Any feedback would be appreciated, thanks guys!

Package finally arrived a month after ordering. The headphones came damaged though, Looks like they were loose in the packaging and scuffed the top and bottom of the ear cups. They seem to work fine, but it's super disappointing that they are already scuffed like this and are brand new.

This is strange. The email Drop sent stated that the shipment is coming from Shenzhen but the package indicated that it originated from Netherlands.

Bought this in May 2018, as soon as I adjusted the headband to try it on it, the round cap which had the logo and left/right indictor for the left side came off. Also the flat rod which is the height adjustment went over and I had to push it back in and now adjusting the height requires alot of strength. And more recntly, the left 2.5mm connector is a bit fiddyl, signal keeps getting dropped when I turn my head left or right. Not sure whether the built quality is to.blame or the QC for my particular unit is bad.

I seem to have a slight clicking sound in my right ear when I move my head at all whenever I move, does anyone know how to fix this? After some testing it continues to make the clicking/poping noise even when unplugged.

Are there any plans to make a drop version of the Hifiman HE-500 or a HE5XX? I would buy those in a heartbeat. I love my HE-500's but the build quality and stock cable could be better.
