HE-6 on forbes--10 Most Expensive Headphones

Expensive headphones are one of those products that some people have an instant and visceral aversion against. These folks have probably never heard decent headphones, so can’t imagine what good-high end headphones can sound like. Or they just feel like spending $2,000 on a pair of headphone

Expensive headphones are one of those products that some people have an instant and visceral aversion against. These folks have probably never heard decent headphones, so can’t imagine what good-high end headphones can sound like. Or they just feel like spending $2,000 on a pair of headphones is excessive.

To be fair, these ten most expensive headphones go a step beyond. Uber-expensive, but offering a combination of luxury build quality, design and, usually, superior sound.

Hifiman HE-6
The HiFiman has two features that you’ll see are common among the most expensive headphones: open-back, and planar magnetic. Check out Open-back vs Closed-back headphones for that difference (hint, most headphones are closed-back).
Planar magnetic headphones (and speakers) use a thin material suspended in a magnetic field. They sound different than traditional drivers. I go into more detail in my Audeze LCD-3 review, which also use planar magnetic drivers.
Reviews:
CNET’s Steve Guttenberg liked them a lot in his review, “The Hifiman headphones and amplifier provide a remarkably direct connection to the music, without adding or subtracting much from the sound. It’s as close to “being there” as I’ve heard from headphones.”
