Claimed to have the largest and lightest diaphragms in the history of headphones, the planar-magnetic HiFiMan HE1000 V2 builds on the strengths of the original HE1000, offering lighter weight (14.8 vs 16.9oz) and sturdier cables, plus ear-shaped earpads of thicker "pleather." Impedance is 35 ohms, sensitivity 90dB. According to HR, the V2s are "extremely transparent, and excel at imaging and spatiality." No less important, Herb noted, was that the V2s "did serpentine flow better than any headphones I know." He added that their low sensitivity "never once let the music hesitate, or lack for sparkle or momentum." Icing on a good-sounding cake: the V2s impressed HR as being "way more comfortable than any Audeze model."Audio Video Magazine: Best Hi-End Headphones 2016. Soundstage 2015 Product of the Year.

Reviews for HiFiMan V1000 V2 headphones
"To me, the Hifiman HE-1000, is the best headphone of 2015. A headphone that scores very well on everything and most of all always stays musical. It’s an absolute joy to listen to and I’m pretty sure it sounds great on a whole lot of amplifiers besides the ones I tested." Headfonia
"I refused to buy these with the $3k price. After a while I HAD TO TEST THEM, so when I did I knew I had to own them. Keep them. If I did not I would miss them and could never listen to my other headphones again as they would have lost something. I would always long for that HE 1000 sound. That magical ethereal quality to the music, all music, any music. Beautiful, forgiving, magical, ethereal, liquid, flowing, detailed, huge soundscape, out of the head experience…all things I can say that will describe what I hear when these are on my head. After all of this time with the HE-1000 I have to say… These are the best I have ever heard, even beating the Stax 009 for my tastes. At $3k then, these may be a slight bargain. I believe in living life to the fullest. We are here for one go round, and it goes by FAST. I remember being 16 listening to my albums in my room and here I am, 30 years later (now 46) listening to music in my office and bedroom, mostly all day while I work. I get massive enjoyment, peace and often times meditation from music. I love music, and having the HE-1000 Headphones have brought me closer to the music and the artist than I have ever been."

"These headphones really are so good that I’m confident in raving about them, and confident that you’ll largely agree -- maybe even totally agree." SoundStageExperience Magazine
