HIFIMAN's tried-and-tested stealth magnets technology trickles down to the budget-friendly HE400se open-back, over-ear planar magnetic headphones. This is a well-tuned set that outperforms many others costing significantly more, and does so without many compromises. Oh, did I mention that it's less than $150?

Currently priced at $699, the ANANDA sits below the Arya and the Susvara in terms of price, but still offers many of the advantages of its bigger brethren.

HiFiMAN's newest high-end in-ear gets put to the test. The RE-600s are a beefed up version of the RE-400s we loved. The price has also been hiked up to $399, making it just as expensive as several great in-ears, like the UE900s. We test the RE-600s to find out whether the asking price is justified!
