About HiFiMAN
At the recent CES in Las Vegas Nevada, HIFIMAN previewed its upcoming HE1000 planar magnetic headphone and EF1000 Class A amplifier. These new products are radical departures to what the company has offered in its rich history and they were enthusiastically received by show attendees. Listeners were stunned by the HE1000's huge soundstage, lifelike detail and ultra transparency. Many proclaimed HE1000 to be one of the best headphones they have ever heard. Final pricing and availability have still not been set though they will certainly be priced as reference products. HIFIMAN engineers are making final improvements and going through additional testing. Expected availability is late spring to early summer of 2015. Stay tuned for additional updates.
