HifiMan - HE5se

Limited to 500 units


Like the recently updated and re-release of the legendary HE6se a few months ago the classic HE5se will be updated and re-released in limited numbers.


An Original Reborn

The new HE5se re-imagines and updates the beloved original while retaining the basic elements of what made it one of Hifiman's most successful models. The nanometer-thick diaphragm is remarkably precise, giving the HE5se's planar driver a sense of space and sonic realism that is unmatched by similarly priced products.

All-new Hybrid Headband

Light and more adjustable for maximum comfort, even after hours of listening.

New 3.5mm Connectors

Angles at 10 degrees to reduce pressure and ensure a long-lasting link between the headphone and the cable.

Proprietary FocusPad

Featuring memory foam surrounded by pleather and soft velour outer layers that gently envelope the ears.


Impedance : 40Ω
Sensitivity : 92db
Frequency Response : 20Hz-35kHz
Weight : 387g(13.7oz)


“The HE5 is a sentimental favorite for HIFIMAN customers and staff,” said Dr. Bian. “For many, it was the first high-end headphone to demonstrate the neutral, transparent sonics and wide soundstage.

Lets just say I was surprised!

I own 5 different hifiman headphones and these didnt disappoint. Each has a sound of its own. The he-560 seems to be the most neutral sounding not adding a bump like the 400 and sundras do. These 500se are a special edition sort of a tribute to original he5 and sound nothing like them at all. You have the fast attack with good base. At times upper registries can be on the edge of bright. But owning Grado headphones also the He-5se dont get near as warm in treble as say the 325e. I would put the he5se uppers on par with the Grado PS500e in terms of attack and brightness. I instantly noticed the sound difference with the he500se vs the he560 and he400i. At first i thought something was missing but in the end realized the vocals are more forward, i mean in your head forward but clean and clear. Hate to say this but they have become my everyday use headphones now!
