Termination Options- READ CAREFULLY
Our cables should fit your HiFiMan headphones, but just to make things interesting, HiFiMan has been changing the connectors on their headphones over the years. Actually the very old coaxial connectors were difficult to engage/disengage, the old 2.5mm TRS connectors were fragile, and the new 3.5mm TRS connectors should be an improvement. Please check the chart below to see what type of connectors your headset uses! They will not look exactly the same as that pictured but you will get the idea!
A standard 3.5mm Surf Cables connector is shown at the bottom of the chart for size comparison.
About HiFiMan Headphones.
HiFiMan headphones are well engineered and have become quite popular in the market. Whether you have the planar or dynamic driver models, these headphones sound and look fantastic. Moreover, they are fully balanced units, capable of outstanding performance when run with a balanced headphone amplifier and balanced cable. The stock cable can also be upgraded for better, fuller sound. While we are not affiliated with HiFiMan, we do offer silver-Teflon upgraded standard and balanced cables for certain HiFiMan models. Our cables are made of stranded copper wire, with silver plating on each strand. They also feature Teflon insulation.
You may choose a cable with Standard or OCC silver-plated copper wire with Teflon insulation. Standard wire is military/aerospace quality silver plated copper with Teflon insulation, 24 AWG twisted pair. The OCC cable uses a costly and premium wire formed of specially processed silver plated copper, with Teflon insulation and is of high purity, "5N" or better. It is approximately 28 AWG. This high purity wire sounds great and has been specially selected by us for its electrical and mechanical properties. Both types of wire are very flexible, can be bunched, and are durable.

Our cables are fully sleeved with a soft, cloth-like black fabric covering.
