The new Jade II from Hifiman provides a surprisingly punchy bass response for an electrostatic headphone, couple with Hifiman’s signature midrange warmth. The high end is well controlled and never overbearing, making this a pleasant, relaxing listen.
The high end detail is brought to the fore, offering a view into the music free of any veiling glare, producing pinpoint imaging. The headphone is extremely light and comfortable, with nice metalwork detailing on each earcup.
The Jade II is a technologically superior electrostatic headphone that can be purchased alone or as part of a full system with an outboard amplifier.
It can also be powered by any Stax 5-pin compatible headphone amplifier, like our legendary Blue Hawaii SE.
The Jade II epitomizes electrostatic speed and performance. A low-distortion nanotech driver measuring less than 0.001mm couples near zero distortion with lightning-fast response and a nano-particle coated diaphragm that provides an extreme high-frequency response.
Nano particle coated diaphragms provide extended high-frequency response, revealing every last detail of well-recorded music.
The combination of lightweight aluminum alloy construction, padded earcups, and a hybrid headband design ensures a comfortable fit, even for extended periods of time.
