Audiophile Performance at an Entry-Level Price

We’re always listening to your feedback and updating our products to make them the best that they can be. Our newest open-back headphone, the Massdrop x HIFIMAN HE-35X delivers true audiophile performance at an entry-level price. It features the same 50-millimeter dynamic drivers developed for the HE-350 and has been retuned for an improved frequency response. Using an electrical high-pass filtering circuit in each ear cup, we’ve balanced the treble for a smoother overall sound. This model is a whole lot more comfortable, too, with the same angled hybrid pads—a combination of velour and breathable synthetic leather—found on the HE-400i. The yoke is reinforced with an internal metal structure for added strength, and the cup connectors are more durable with a larger 3.5-millimeter plug size.

About HIFIMAN

Born in New York City in 2007, HIFIMAN has had a big influence on the audiophile world, and founder Dr. Fang has always had close ties with the community. He started out on Head-Fi and attended local meetups while pursuing his doctorate at Columbia. When he realized his PhD research could be relevant to his passion—the music-listening experience and the audiophile products that improve it—he started talking with forum members and meetup attendees about what they’d like to see in the next generation of headphones. Since then, the company has been featured in TIME, Forbes, and CNET’s “The Audiophiliac,” and won the CES Editors’ Choice Award. HIFIMAN is a natural partner for Massdrop because our goals are so aligned. At its core, it represents a passionate audiophile building a company that serves the rest of the community.

Praise for the Massdrop x HIFIMAN HE-35X
  • "5/5 stars overall. The price-performance ratio of the HE-35X simply can't be beat. These hit all the marks of the originals while improving on every front. Highly recommend for anyone looking for an entry into audiophile goodness." – Neural0
  • "The HE-35X has substantially better treble reproduction that can be considered bright, but artistically so. This is thanks to the decision to use a high-pass filtering circuit in each ear cup that balances the low treble. The bass extension on the HE-35X has also improved, thanks to the new ear pads and proper seal. This headphone actually caters to my basshead desires a lot more than I thought it would." – Xephyroth
  • "Overall, the HE-35X delivers a decent level of clarity and separation between brass sections and cymbals, and toppy female vocalists and their pianos—better than par for the price, if you ask me ... Offers good value for the audiophile on a restricted budget." – thesoundapprentice
  • "Easy to drive ... Electronic music with good bass/treble really shines on these cans." – willco007
  • "It is everything you would want, and then some ... Enjoy a luxuriously audiophile value!" – moedawg140
