Super Lightweight


HiFiMAN added a new member to its closed-back family with the new HE-R9. The HE-R9 is designed for extended listening sessions, and everything from the ergonomics of the headphone to the sound signature has been carefully engineered to serve this purpose. It presents a frenzy of rich and powerful bass and a smooth vocal delivery to support it.

HiFiMAN is a brand well known for offering high-quality headphones for many years. HiFiMAN is familiar with their planar magnetic headphones and is loved amongst the audiophile community. After extensive research and design rehaul HiFiMAN now presents the HE-R9 (Wired) closed-back dynamic headphone showcasing that same design language as the HE-R10 and features the unique Topology Diaphragm to deliver crystal clear audio reproduction. The HE-R9 (Wired) has a frequency response from 15Hz - 35kHz and an impedance of 32 ohms, allowing you to connect the headphone to virtually any source and enjoy your music with utmost clarity.



The new HiFiMAN HE-R9 (Wired) offers high sensitivity thanks to the use of rare earth magnets and HiFiMAN's classic Topology Diaphragm with a special nanoparticle coating for detailed high-frequency response up to 35kHz. By applying nano-scale particles to the diaphragm in a variety of patterns and layers, a high-level optimisation is possible, having a positive effect on the audio characteristics. The idea behind the new Topology Diaphragm was inspired by Dr Fang Bian's Ph. D. thesis that "different Nanomaterials have differing structures and each of those materials have its properties”. The result of this new Topology is a more natural and detailed sound than what is typically achieved in wireless earphones.



The design language of the HiFiMAN HE-R9 (Wired) is thoughtful and is implemented with comfort in mind. The exterior of the headband is covered by high-quality leather, giving it a soft and elegant appearance. The interior of the headband comes with high-grade memory foam support added to achieve the most comfortable fit even while longer listening sessions. The headband skeleton is made of solid steel keeping the structure lightweight and strong, robust yet delicate, and designed to convey detail and musicality. To match this, the HE-R9 (Wired) features large crimson ear cups with internal space that helps produce substantial spatial volume and the necessary breathing room for the powerful driver to sound its best.



The HiFiMAN HE-R9 (Wired) showcases a unique dual compatibility cable connection design. The design utilises a 3.5mm connection on both the sides of the headphone and for compatibility with the highest range of sources, the HE-R9's socket accommodates both dual-sided 3.5mm and single-sided balanced cables. The addition of the HiFiMAN Bluemini R2R dongle (Sold Separately) turns the HE-R9 (Wired) into a high-resolution wireless headphone. Bluemini R2R dongle easily connects to the left socket and offers wireless freedom.

The HE-R9 - Nope, these aren't too bassy

I was in the market for a closed back with a somewhat laid back sound signature, and kept reading or hearing about this new Hifiman Headphone. These headphones have been called laid back, bassy heavy, dark and so on.

Unfortunately they are none of it, I am sure a basshead wouldn't be impressed by the either the quantity or the slam on this headphone, but on the other hand someone who wants a clean sounding headphone with a bit more oomph these would do that very well.

So with that out of the way. Initially i was slightly disappointed as i wanted a laid back closed back(pun intended). But upon further listening i have started to like them a bit.

Now to describe the sound, the good parts :
1) Very good soundstage for a closed back
2) Transparency and clarity, despite the elevated mid bass
4) Very very comfortable

The bad parts :
1) Upper mids elevation could be an issue for treble sensitive folks
2) The build quality is not upto the mark, have to be careful with them
3) At this price i expected a balanced cable in the box

Hi there, we are so happy you took out time and elaborately reviewed the product. We are sure this will help our customers to make an even better and informed decision.
