The planar magnetic headphones, also known as orthodynamic, are an alternative to the usual dynamic drivers which the audio industry has mainly chosen all these years.The reason for its small popularity is due to their high cost and technical difficulties involved. Thanks to its extensive experience with this type of transducer, HifiMAN has succeeded in manufacturing headphones that make the best out of this technology (speed, clarity, powerful sound …) at a fair price, focusing them into general use especially where pop, rock, techno and powerful music stand out.

Why Choose A Dynamic Headphone…When You Can have Planar?
Dynamic headphones utilize conductors that vibrate in limited areas of the diaphragm. Result is that a large percentage of the diaphragm cannot be directly driven by those conductors.Planar headphones like HifiMAN HE400S have conductive layers over almost all of the diaphragm. Evenly driven by these conductors, result is significantly lower distortion than conventional dynamic headphones.
