Single-ended planar magnetic driver provides superior soundstage and spatial imaging.
Increased efficiency of 93dB allows it to be driven with a modest size amplifier or can even be used with a portable audio player or smartphone.
The HE400i is 30 percent lighter than other full-size planar magnetic designs for increased comfort.
Easy-to-drive, high quality full-size planar magnetic headphone is only 499 dollars.
Planar vs. Electrostatic
Compared to the electrostatic driver, the planar magnetic technology uses a more massive diaphragm that is able to move very quickly in a coherent and uniform way. The planar magnetic headphone gives excellent transient response and a sound quality almost equal to that of an electrostatic product.
