HIFIMAN HE-400i are a full-size planar magnetic headphone intended for high performance listening at home or in the studios. The HE-400i is 30% lighter than all comparable headphones allowing the listener to comfortably enjoy music for hours on end with minimal listener fatigue. Along with the lighter weight, a newly-designed headband with an improved pressure pattern is an important key to these phone’s being one of the best-in-class for comfort. The FocusPad, new beveled hybrid ear pads made of pleather and velour, provide both increased comfort and improved sound quality. The gloss ear cups are finished in a smoky gray, Mylar finish that gives the HE-400i a striking contemporary look.
