The HiFiMan HE-R10D Dynamic Headphone is the sibling to the HE-R10P, the planar magnetic variant in the HE-R10 series. A closed-back headphone, the HE-R10D is lightweight and comfortable with large wooden ear cups. The HE-R10D sports one of HiFiMan's technological innovations, the BlueMini Bluetooth Adapter, so you can enjoy HiFi listening untethered.
The HE-R10D has an energetic and punchy dynamic driver, lending to a warm sound and fairly neutral headphone. The soundstage is surprisingly spacious for a closed-back design and the driver will add energy to any of your favorite music. The HE-R10D is the perfect closed-back headphone for those wanting longer listening sessions but don't want to sacrifice driver size or overall punch in fidelity.
Through the development of HiFiMan's BlueMini Bluetooth Adapter, transmitting audio wirelessly is a reality with the HE-R10D. The BlueMini Bluetooth Adapter connects to the underside of the left ear cup, giving you the option to transmit audio via Bluetooth or USB-C. There is a single pairing button on the BlueMini, a USB-C port, and a status LED. You can enjoy up to 10 hours of hands-free listening depending on the codec, with a variety of HD Bluetooth protocols including LDAC, FLAC, aptX HD, aptX, AAC, and SBC.
The HiFiMan HE-R10D is an incredibly lightweight headphone that is extremely comfortable to wear for long listening sessions. Large wooden ear cups, made through CNC carving, bring sufficient volume and "breathing room" to the powerful planar magnetic driver.
The HE-R10D's large headband evenly distributes the weight and lifts the pressure off the ear cups. HiFiMan's tranquility earpads feature high-quality leather on the outside, which uses a ring-shaped inner surface to absorb sound and prevent sound leakage through the sides of the ear pad. The structure is both lightweight and strong and designed to convey detail and musicality that is on an entirely new level of premium headphones.
The “Topology Diaphragm” refers to a diaphragm featuring a special Nano particle coating applied to its surface. The result is a more natural and detailed sound than what is typically achieved in True Wireless earphones.
The idea behind the new Topology Diaphragm was inspired by Dr Fang Bian's Ph.D. thesis that "different Nano materials have differing structures and each of those materials have its own properties". Therefore, by carefully controlling the diaphragm surface structure you can yield different results in acoustic performance to a degree previously unobtainable.
The dynamic driver version feature the Typology Diaphragm designed for detailed high-frequency response up to 30kHz, an advanced voice coil, along with high sensitivity due to the implementation of a rare earth magnet in the driver design.
HiFiMan includes three detachable headphone cables with the HE-R10D. The cables feature a newly designed, single-crystal, copper silver-plated structure. The combination of a high number of strands and the ratio of various ingredients ensure a low signal loss. You'll find a balanced XLR to 3.5mm cable, an unbalanced 3.5mm to 3.5mm cable, and an unbalanced quarter-inch to 3.5mm.
