The worthy successor to the highly acclaimed "V1" model is a versatile, wide sound stage, planar magnetic headphone with well-defined bass. The 1-nanometer-thick membrane is capable of extremely fast and precise sound reproduction between 8Hz and 65000Hz. The magnets that were designed with HiFiMan's Stealth Magnets Design technology are acoustically transparent, so sound waves can travel without interference. The interchangeable cabled, high-quality, yet physically flat headphones have an asymmetrical, ear-shaped design that guarantees comfort while offering a secure wear. The HE1000 V2 is a refreshing upgrade from its predecessor and to the audiophile world.
