HE1000se Planar headphone

While many high-grade headphones require a powerful, dedicated headphone to make the most of them, the HE1000se’s are designed for a more flexible fit. High sensitivity makes them suitable for lower powered headphone amps, or even directly from your Hi-Res music player or other device.

The HE1000 sound signature on an easy to drive headphone

Based on the well respected HE1000v2, this new editions driver is 5db more efficient allowing for use with portable devices. Using a thinner overall Driver and an all new Neodymium magnet structure, add to that the 95db sensitivity and the result is all the detail and air of the HE1000v2 with a more immediate dynamic sound.

Stealth magnets for acoustic invisibility
Planar magnetic and electrostatic headphones offer numerous advantages but both suffer from a design limitation – magnet interference. As the soundwave passes from the diaphragms, over the magnets themselves, distortion takes place – colouring the sound you hear. To overcome this, the HS1000se uses specially designed, stealth magnets that enable the waves to pass unimpeded. The result is astonishing realism – even by HIFIMAN’s own high standards.

Improved Magnets

New to the HE1000se are neodymium magnets that increase efficiency and lower distortion for a true purity of sound. Neodymium, widely recognized for providing incomparable magnetic strength in a compact size, providing a consistently exceptional output that is equal to larger and heavier ferrite magnets. With neodymium, the new model’s driver is faster and more dynamic, presenting every sonic detail for a more compelling performance.

Similar to the previous version, a patented “window shade” open back design minimizes distortion by avoiding unwanted reflections and vibrations that misrepresent the artist’s performance. The result is a wide, natural soundstage that mirrors the experience of listening to live music in an acoustically accurate club or concert hall.

Diaphragm

The diaphragm is only one nanometer yielding faster response and a high dynamic range that makes recordings come to life, satisfying the most demanding listeners, no matter the genre, from soft acoustic music to high energy rock & roll, and every genre in between. Ergonomically, the HE1000se is exceptionally comfortable, thanks to a specially designed headband that features a steady arch structure for stability and durability for years of usage without a change in fit. A new matte finish with ebony wood trim adds a smart, attractive touch that enhances the overall design.
