HiFiMan were founded in 2007 by enthusiast Fang Bian and in this relatively short space of time have taken on the more established headphone brands and are considered by many audiophiles across the world to be the producers of some of the best headphones available with the mighty HE-1000’s being hailed by many as the best headphone in the world regardless of price. Most HiFiMan headphones use a different kind of driver technology for their headphones called ‘Orthodynamic’ which uses Planar Magnetic drivers rather than the more traditional Dynamic driver potentially being able to react faster and offer more control.
