An absolutely stunning planar magnetic headphone the HiFiMan HE-560. HiFiMan took all the great features of the already acclaimed HE-500 and improved upon them. The HE 560 is much lighter at only 13.3 oz making it one of the lightest planer magnetic headphones in the market. The earpads have been completely redesigned and are now a combination of leather and velour. This makes the 560 extremely comfortable to wear for many hours without your ears overheating.
Now for the best part, the SOUND QUALITY! Oh my, these sound fantastic! Nearly perfect in every single way. The highs are crisp, clean, quick, and enhance every detail of your music. Every note, string pluck, chime, or slightest sound comes through effortlessly without any harshness or sibilance to be found. The midrange is very well balanced to the highs and lower frequencies. It never feels too honky or boxy, nor is it scooped out and hollow. The bass response of the 560 is incredible. Whether the bass needs to be punchy and tight, lots of boom and slam, or even those super sub bass notes these headphones come through with flying colors. The bass never feels too boomy or too dry. The one word that keeps coming to mind to describe the sound of the HE560 is perfection. This is not a word we throw around very often, but the 560 is deserving of this title.
