HiFiMAN HE-6 Reference Planar Magnetic Headphones

Founded by Dr. Fang Bian in 2007, HiFiMAN is widely regarded as one of the leading manufacturers of high performance headphones and portable audio products. They are especially known for its critically-acclaimed Planar-Magnetic headphones that feature state-of-the-art driver technology.

The HE-6 is HiFiMAN’s flagship planar magnetic designed headphones and its 83.5dB sensitivity is higher than similar designs and allows it to be driven with a powerful headphone amplifier. The HE-6 offers impressive combination of low frequency extension, pitch definition, and dynamic clout. The bass reproduction from these oversized cans is clear and easily noticeable if you listen to good recordings highlighting either acoustic or electric bass. These headphones feature over-sized drivers, a high gloss finish, soft leather ear pads already installed on the headphones and a replacement pair of velour ear pads. Once you have experienced headphones of this quality, it will be difficult to switch back to most other headphones because you will realize that the finest levels of detail are effortlessly captured by the HE-6’s while most other headphones cannot compete.

Mini Digital/Analog Converter Makes Your Audio Listening Experience Better

Upgrade the Sound of Your Digital Music Stored on Your Computer:

Improving the sound quality of your listening experience can be an important thing for most people, especially if their using headphones as a means to entertain their ears. Not all notebooks and desktop computers come with a great soundcard, as usually the on-board integrated audio experience can lack luster leaving you wanting more. HiFiMAN has decided it’s time for that to change. Enter the HM-101, a USB Digital/Analog Converter (DAC) that takes the music stored on your notebook or desktop computer and reconverts it into an experience worth listening to. The HM-101 is extremely tiny (seriously, look at how small it is) and yet manages to do an amazing job at making your audio sound huge whether you’re using headphones, or are sending the signal to an amplifer or a set of speakers. One of the best features is that it utilizes USB and requires no battery, quickly making this external soundcard a more than valuable replacement for that pathetic integrated/onboard audio card you’ve been dealing with.

More information continues below:

The majority of computers today have decent on-board sound cards, however they provide a very lean and metallic sound. Perhaps this sound may work for some people but definitely not everyone. For those people who listen to music from their computer or laptop and demand a higher quality sound, replacing the sound card can be a quite an ordeal to replace and even then you may not achieve the sound that you are looking for. The HM-101 Sound Card by HiFiMan is an external USB sound card and a Digital Analog Converter (DAC). A DAC is a device that converts a digital, compressed music file and converts it to an analog signal. The DAC takes the digital output of a compatible audio player and converts the signal into an analog line-level output that can be fed into an amplifier to drive speakers.

The HM-101 is approximately half the size of a standard business card and does not require any batteries or charging. By simply plugging in the HM-101 into a USB drive, you will hear a noticeably cleaner, warmer, and fuller sounding audio. This unit is the perfect solution to making cheaper headphones sound better. If you’re in need of a simple, portable, no-frills audio solution to greatly improve the quality of your digital music- look no further. Read More

The Famed HiFiMAN RE-0s, the Headphones You NEED to Know About

Product Title (In box)

Quality, Durable High Performance Stereo Earphones:

I love posting about the audio products we carry over at SmartHome.com and it completely made my day to see that we are now carrying the famed HiFiMAN RE-0 in-ear headphones. “Amazing sound quality, in such an affordable package? How is this possible?!” …you ask. Well, I’m no engineer, but my guess is that HiFiMAN has a bit of magic going on over at their factory. These headphones truly deliver sound quality that rivals some of the much more expensive offerings of other renowned high-end manufacturers. The RE-0s can keep up with the best with its powerful 9mm driver featuring a Neodymium magnet which pumps out a frequency range of 15Hz to 22kHz for incredible lows and crystal clear highs. Durable construction sums up this quality set of audio awesomeness with its PPE tangle resistant cable and metal housing. For the price and the sound quality provided, these headphones are in a class of their own.

Here’s more essential info on these awesome headphones:

Touted by reviewers as one of the best values in headphones, the RE-0 is a high performance stereo in-ear headphone, featuring a powerful 9mm driver with Neodymium magnet. The stereo ear pieces are manufactured from a durable metal and the cable is made from tangle resistant polyphenylene ether (PPE) plastic. The superior dynamic drivers provide the kind of smooth and transparent middle range that you typically only get with much higher priced earphones. The in-ear design of the RE-0 puts you closer to the music by offering 15-20 dB of passive isolation, which adds up to less distracting ambient noise that could interfere with your music. Its 64Ω impedance makes it compatible with both portable music players and headphone amplifiers. The RE-0 comes supplied with various sized replacement silicone tips to ensure a comfortable fit.
