View Full Discussion Again Massdrop has taken another sale of headphones, and although it has expired from time to time you can go to see if they turn it on again. In this case it is the Hifiman HE4XX headphones with a magnificent construction between metal, plastic and leather or leatherette. With a design that I loved, very similar to the old HE400i.
As you can see it is a magnetic planar open-type and removable cable headphones. The cable connection to the headphones is 2.5mm and the end of 3.5mm at 90º angle, also give us a 6.3mm jack adapter. Being the material of construction of this plastic cable, and not braided like the one that comes with the HE400i.
As for your comfort I will tell you that it is very good, very similar or superior to the HD 598cs, which for me it is the most comfortable headphones I've tried. The area of the headband is well padded and is very comfortable, and the pads are generous and in no time the ears touch the area of the drivers. And although they are not light headphones, weigh 370gr, how comfortable they are will make you forget that you wear them. By the way, the headphones do not move when you tilt your head forward or backward.
And we come to the sound section. They have a good sound for the price range in which they move, with a good level of detail throughout the sound range without highlighting any in particular. Although in terms of bass it do not have much presence, even being a magnetic planar headphones. With this I do not mean that its sound is flat or that it is heard below medium and high, but it is correct. So those of you who like the basses do not think these are headphones for you. As for the sound scene is good with also a good separation between instruments.
I have tested them in a Xiaomi Redmi Pro and moves them well, boosting the bass a little more than in another player. Also in a Hidizs AP200, where the sound as expected is much clearer and more powerful, and in an NFB 11.28, where it sounds slightly better than in the AP200 but moving them much better and giving us much more power. Its impedance is 35 ohms so you can use them in any player, even a mobile phone without problems. Although as always, it takes much better advantage with a more powerful amplifier.
So these Hifiman HE4XX of Massdrop are headphones with a magnificent construction and excellent comfort, with a good sound although its low do not protrude too much but without being flat. With a good sound scene and a good positioning of the instruments. It is a sale of the page Massdrop with a price of 169.99 $, about 147 €. If you are interested I recommend you take a look from time to time to the link that I will put you because sometimes activate the sale.
