The HE6 returns!  After a number of years out of production, HIFIMAN have brought back this fan-favorite headphone, upgraded with their latest and best headband design, earpads, and cables, for a modern take on this classic high-end headphone.  The HE6SE ships with HIFIMAN’s FocusPads, and a 4-pin XLR Crystalline Silver/Copper cable with a matching adapter to 1/4″ TRS plug.  The headphone uses HIFIMAN’s latest 3.5mm jacks for connecting the cable to the headphone for the most durable, easy to use connection.

Our Take

The original HE6 is a legendary headphone for its’ sound quality, and now it can be enjoyed with a newly designed, lighter, suspension headband that improves on the original’s greatest weakness: comfort.  If you’ve always wanted an HE6, here’s your chance, just don’t skimp on the amplification. (Hint, our GS-X mk2 is capable of 6W into 50ohms, and will do a great job getting the most out of your new HE6SE)
