HEADPHONES
Enter a large electronics-shop and you will find hundreds of headphones in the lower and medium price ranges. However, truly premium headphones will be rare and if any the salesman most probably will not be able to tell you much about them (apart from that they're the best headphones in the world).
For this very reason I sell a bunch of selected, premium headphones only. If interested, come and have a listen in my demonstration-room or phone/mail for more information. I'm well familiar will all these headphones and will try to answer all the questions you have.
To get the best out of these phones a headphone amp is mandatory. Therefore considerable price reductions are offered on our amplifiers if bought in combination with a phone.

Note1: All prices include world-wide shipping.

Note2: Customers living outside the EU do not have to pay VAT (Value Added Taxes). Therefore their prices are lower (!!!) than those shown on this page. Please send me a mail if interested.

A simple but very elegant design combined with real-wood veneer and fine craftsmanship make these stands a feast to the eye. Available in 4 versions.
The T1 is certainly the best headphone ever made by BEYERDYNAMIC.
The phone has a very neutral and honest sound and a somewhat compact and distant soundstage. Good comfort!
For those who need the sonic isolation of a closed headphone the T5P is well worth a consideration. This phone has a fast and pacy sound. Easy to drive but too big for true portable applications. Good comfort!
A closed headphone that is very easy to drive (portable players!). A somewhat pronounced treble and bass gives you a lot of detail even at lower sound levels. Sonic isolation is not very high. Comfortable!
This is clearly the bigger brother of the TH-600. High sensitivity and a full bottom sound make it rock! The headphone equivalent of a big horn-loudspeaker!!
Nice and comfortable!
This headphone has a neutral balance but with the earpads of artificial leather it sounds somewhat hollow and colored. With velour pads (to be ordered separately) the colorations disappear but balance goes towards a warmer sound. Very good value-for-money!
With the velour earpads this headphone offers a neutral and well defined sound with high, yet non-agressive, detail. Bass is well controlled and tight and provides nice slamm. A true high-light!
Due to its excellent definition and detail this headphones presents any music with ease and self-evidence without putting in much character of its own. Neutral and highly resolving but a powerfull amplifier is needed to drive these phones adequatly.
High detail and a wide soundstage is what this headphone excels at. A slightly pronounced treble provides an impression of speed. Very comfortable!!
A few notes to Hifiman headphones:

- The HE-400/500/6 headphones have large magnetostatic drivers. These provide the high resolution that only few dynamic systems can match but also increase the weight of these headphones to 440/500/500 gramms. That's considerably more than that of dynamic headphones like the HD800/ED12 (330/280 gramms).

- All Hifiman come with earpads of artificial leather. The HE-500 and HE-6 also have additional earpads of velours that, in my opinion, sound much better. Velour pads also benefit the HE-400. However, these have to be ordered separately.

ULTRASONE
SIGNATURE PRO
ULTRASONE
EDITION 12
One of the best closed systems around with a deep and powerfull sound. Not as clean as a fine open system but very enjoyable.
Earpads are a little bit small. Not for people with big ears! Easy to drive and well suited for portable/travelling applications.
Comfortable to hear!
Comfortable to wear!
A nicely balanced, mellow and fluent sound without any trace of harshness. Not the highest level of detail but the light weight and soft ear-cushions make this a fine phone to simply enjoy the music.
