HIFIMAN have been one of the key brands in the high-end headphone category for almost a decade and more than a few pairs of their planar magnetic headphones are staff favourites. We use the Deva wireless headphones as a benchmark for other products in the category, and the HIFIMAN Sundara are one of our favourite affordable headphones below $500.

Today HiFiMAN announced the new HE400se open-back planar magnetic headphone which employs single-ended drivers said to deliver a wide soundstage with accurate spatial imaging. With increased efficiency to 91dB, the HE400se should perform as well with smartphones and tablets as it does with a full-size amplifier.

Designed for extended listening sessions, the HE400se is 30% lighter than comparable magnetic headphones, weighing a mere 13.75 oz. Adding to its comfort is a newly-designed headband and beveled hybrid earpads that also contribute to the headphone’s exceptional performance. With this design, varying thicknesses conform to the human skull, almost as if it is custom-tailored to each listener’s head.
