If “Dark Blue Chrome” is your favorite color, you are in luck! The new condition limited edition Hifiman HE-400i Dark Blue Chrome open-back over-ear headphones have dropped from $200 to $180 with free shipping at BuyDIG. It looks like they are “savings” these for their own website, I haven’t seen them through their eBay or Amazon stores.

Speaking of planar-magnetic headphones on sale, the Monoprice M560 open/closed on-ears continue for $150, while their larger M1060 over-ears are back down to $250 with free shipping.

Hifiman HE5 Planar Headphones + EF100 Amp for $599

This offer is only offered through the official Hifman store directly because it is too complicated to structure on Amazon and eBAY and such. You get the Hifiman HE5 planar magnetic headphones AND the Hifiman EF-100 amp for $599. However, they won’t ship together. The EF100 will ship shortly after ordering, but the HE5 headphones will ship in December (no specific date or range in December mentioned). So if you are not in a hurry to receive them, pretend it’s Massdrop 🙂

Hifiman Edition X V2 Planar Over-Ears for $1199

This one got lost in the shuffle when I posted the previous Hifiman deals, it is the new condition Hifiman Edition X V2 down to $1200 with free shipping by various sellers thru Amazon and by the official Hifiman and World Wide Stereo stores on eBAY. These too are planar magnetic, over-ear, over-the-universe headphones 🙂

This was going for $85 the last time we posted about it three weeks ago, but as of the time of writing, the new condition Hifiman HE-350 dynamic over-ear headphones are available at Blinq.com for $77 with free shipping.

Per the listing over there, there is only one unit available…

Hifiman HE-400i Planar Magnetics drop to $219

The Hifiman eBay store is getting an early start on the Black Friday festivities, they have also discounted their open/closed Hifiman Edition S headphones from $149 to $129 in the black color scheme.

If you prefer to shop at Amazon, or if you want either color scheme, fear not, there are multiple Amazon listings on them for $129 and Prime eligible offered by the Hifiman Amazon store at these prices.

These are dynamic on-ear headphones. Their claim to fame is the “open/close” option which is fairly rare.

PS: the white color scheme’s name includes “lightning” in it. It’s part of the name. It does NOT have a lightning cable connector for Apple devices. To paraphrase REM, it’s part of the “Adventures in Chi-Fi” 🙂
