HE-R10P Represents HIFIMAN’s Long-Awaited Return to a Closed-Back Design
BELLMORE, NY, November 19, 2020 –HIFIMAN, the leader in high fidelity personal audio, will soon deliver its first-closed back planar magnetic headphone in 15 years.
The HE-R10P (SRP: $5,500.00) features large earcups made of cherry wood that provide the necessary breathing room with substantial spatial volume and output that reflects the best of both closed and open-back designs. Each cup is adorned with a CNC (computer numerical control) carving that marries wood and aviation-grade aluminum with elegance and style.
“We invested significant time and resources into developing HIFIMAN closed-back headphone with a shell made of solid wood,” observed Dr. Fang Bian, Founder, and CEO, HIFIMAN Electronics. “The HE-R10P is designed for luxury inside and out. “From the lavish headband to lightweight and comfortable earcups, it represents the pinnacle of modern closed-back headphones at a price that belies its remarkable sonics.”
The components comprising the HE-R10P represent the best of HIFIMAN’s planar magnetic design expertise. A nano scale thickness diaphragm produces unmatched levels of detail with low distortion.
The exterior of the HE-R10P is made of all-natural lambskin surrounding high-grade memory foam for maximum comfort and elasticity. The headband skeleton is constructed of solid steel.
Adding to the overall fit of the headphone are HIFIMAN’s “Tranquility” earpads, featuring high-quality suede on the outside, with a ring-shaped inner surface to absorb sound and prevent leakage, thereby focusing the sound on the listener’s ear. The contact edge is constructed of highly permeable material further to ensure comfort for hours-long listening sessions.
Just as the headphone’s components are top-shelf, the cable, too, represents a new design. A single-crystal, silver-plated structure is highlighted by a high strand count and other elements to guarantee low signal loss and total strength to withstand hours of daily use. Also, the TRSS plug/socket solution allows for a direct balanced input routed to the appropriate drivers.
For compatibility with the highest range of sources, the HE-R10P includes three cables: 3.5mm, 6.5mm, and balanced XLR.
The HE-R10P closed back planar magnetic headphone will is available at a suggested retail price of $5,499.00 from Amazon and HIFIMAN’s online store, https://store.hifiman.com/index.php/he-r10-planar.html. For additional information, visit https://hifiman.com.
