RMAF 2018: HiFiMAN Introduces the Jade II

As usual at Rocky Mountain, the CanJam area was full of energy.  I went down there to cover the latest from Pro-Ject before hitting their room in the tower.  It’s a shame I don’t have time to cover as much of CanJam as in the past but I did run into Scot and he asked me to add HiFiMAN to the coverage list so I ambled over to their tables and ran into my friend Adam Sohmer who does their public relations work.… Read the full article

I am not a headphone guy. Even in my youth, I was all about the room filling stereo experience. Seeking to learn more about the culture of head-fi that has sailed far off port without me, I tap my friend Jameson to be my guide.

This is a sound I can really get used to. When we talk about loudspeaker voicing we talk about the sound a brand is often known for, the way they blend and present the various frequencies of the music.… Read the full article

HiFiMAN Arya, R2R200, HE5se and Jade II – RMAF 2018

By | October 20th, 2018|Categories: Audiohead|Tags: , , , , , , , , |

Yes, that is a total of four new products on the way from HiFiMAN. The planar-loving personal audio company now offers a long and wide cross section of gear that offers a little bit for anyone and everyone. Designer Fang Bian is never one to sit back and relax in this regard, and it really doesn’t come as much of a surprise that he’s got not only a new $2.5k electrostatic system, but also a new HE1000 V2 planar update AND a new micro-sized DAP with LHDC wireless codex.… Read the full article

Hifiman

If you’ve been reading Headfonia then you know we quite like the Hifiman sound, if there is such a thing. Hifiman over the years has delivered a series of incredible headphones in all price ranges, some of my favorite being the HE-500, HE-400iHE-560Edition X and the HE-1000. In Ear Monitor-wise I like both the RE800 and RE2000 24K Gold Edition IEMs a lot.… Read the full article
