This new reference closed-back planar headphone design got his inspiration from the legendary Sony MDR-R10, which was produced from 1989 till eind of the 90’s. The HiFiMAN HE-R10P has a sensitivity of 100 dB and an impedance of 30 Ohm, so it is quite easy to drive and could also be combined with the Bluemini II bluetooth wireless module. The frequency response has been measured at 10-60 khz. The weight of the headphone is 460 gram.
Scoring the HE-R10P an overall 9.2, with 9.5 for sound quality is pretty amazing. The conclusion:
“The Hifiman HE-R10P is easily the best closed-back planar I have heard to date and can give plenty of open-backs a bit of a run for their money also”
Marcus from Headfonics did rigorous testing of the sound quality of this closed-back headphone. It’s the most open-sounding closed-back he has heard with great width and depth. High-resolving, fast sounding, incredible dynamic range and timbre sweetness are the best comments one can receive.
It really gets interesting when Headfonics starts the comparison to its peers. Next to the HiFiMAN Susvara, T+A Solitaire P and the Dan Clark Audio Ether C Flow join the stage for this detailed subscription. Please read the complete review from Headfonics online.
