Massdrop x HIFIMAN HE4XX Planar Magnetic Headphones

Recommended Posts

If they sound anything like Hifiman HE400i (which I believe they are at least partly based on), then not a huge step up but a significant enough one. I've owned about 15 pairs of headphones of varying quality over the past 3-4 years, and my HE400i were probably the best bang for buck headphones I owned, and my favourite sound - I only recently sold them because I picked up a pair of Audeze LCD-3 headphones, which are several steps above the 400i but still use planar technology. Planar magnetic headphones (which these are) have a very different sound - not for everyone, but I've found I much prefer it over dynamic driver.

 

The 598 are a very good pair of cans, and as long as the HE4XX are done right, they will sound different enough to warrant having both pairs...
