How we score

The Engadget Score is a unique ranking of products based on extensive independent research and analysis by our expert editorial and research teams. The Global Score is arrived at only after curating hundreds, sometimes thousands of weighted data points (such as critic and user reviews).

TrustedReviews says:

HiFiMAN's HE-400 are the cheapest and easiest-to-drive planar magnetic headphones the audio specialist has made yet. Selling for just a third the price of the top-end models, while offering a similar sonic personality and build quality, they are easy to recommend for an audition.
