HIFIMAN is world famous for some of the finest headphones ever made. But that doesn’t mean we rest on our laurels.
Who says you can’t make a great thing even greater?
Introducing HE1000 V2 and Edition X V2, the highly acclaimed HE1000 and Edition X have undergone several styling and mechanical enhancements that substantially improve their appearance, durability and comfort. To identify them, the new models will receive a V2 designation after their model names and therefore be known as HE1000 V2 ($2999 MSRP) and Edition X V2 ($1799) respectively. HE1000 V2 and Edition X V2 will be available in September at the same prices as the previous models.
HE1000 V2 remains a cutting-edge, full-size headphone intended for reference use in the home or studio. At much less than 0.001 mm, its Nanotech planar magnetic driver is so thin it is not visible from the side with the naked eye. New features include an improved headband design that is lighter and stiffer yet will accommodate a wider range of head sizes.And the sound quality has been significantly improved. The ear cups are also slimmer further reducing weight and increasing comfort.
Regarding the enhancements to the V2 models, HIFIMAN Founder and President, Dr. Fang Bian commented, “Many years of R&D went into the development of HE1000 and Edition X and they have been highly praised by both reviewers and enthusiasts. Despite that, I am never satisfied with how things are, even with successful products. I am always looking to improve so we listened carefully to user feedback and acted on it. The V2 versions are lighter and more comfortable, better sounding and are enhanced cosmetically with a better fit and finish. I am especially pleased we were able to make these popular models even better with no increase in price.”
HE1000 V2 will make official debut at Hong Kong High-End Audio Visual Show, 5-7 August, 2016.
We will further inform you on the updates and the shipping schedules of the two models.
