Introducing the HE-560, a premium quality, full-size planar magnetic headphone designed for reference use in the home or studio. The HE-560 is 30% lighter thanmost other headphones comparable to its own class, allowing the listener to comfortably enjoy music for hours on end. In addition, a newly-designed headband and beveled ear pads provide remarkable comfort as well as improved sound quality. Using single-ended drivers, HE-560 delivers a lifelike soundstage and spatial imaging that HIFIMAN is known for. Its increased efficiency allows it to be driven with a modest size amplifier. To capture every bit of detail, a premium cable comprising Crystalline copper and crystalline silver comes standard.
Now for the best part, the SOUND QUALITY! Oh my, these sound fantastic! Nearly perfect in every single way. The highs are crisp, clean, quick, and enhance every detail of your music. Every note, string pluck, chime, or slightest sound comes through effortlessly without any harshness or sibilance to be found. The midrange is very well balanced to the highs and lower frequencies. It never feels too honky or boxy, nor is it scooped out and hollow. The bass response of the HE560 is incredible. Whether the bass needs to be punchy and tight, lots of boom and slam, or even those super sub bass notes these headphones come through with flying colors. The bass never feels too boomy or too dry. The one word that keeps coming to mind to describe the sound of the HE-560 is perfection. This is not a word we throw around very often, but the 560 is deserving of this title.
Improvements over the HE-500 include:
1. New teak wood ear cups with an unfinished satin look
2. A wider, more even soundstage
3. Asymmetrical velour and pleather earpads
4. New suspended headband design.
