Thank you for purchasing the HIFIMAN HE560, one of the finest
full-size headphones on the market today. HIFIMAN is a leading
designer and manufacturer of high performance headphones,
headphone amplifiers and portable players.
This Owner's Guide is intended to provide a useful overview of your
new HE560 and how to best operate it for many years of enjoyment,
safety and reliability. Please take the time to familiarize yourself with
its features. If you have any questions or need additional information, contact your authorized HIFIMAN dealer or us directly.
Product Overview
The HIFIMAN HE560 is an open-backed headphone with specially-designed planar magnetic drivers. Connection is made via the
supplied cable with screw-on connectors using separate ground
leads for each channel to minimize crosstalk between the channels.
The HE560's 90dB sensitivity is higher than similar designs and
allows it to be driven with a conventional headphone amplifier. The
HE560 offers impressive frequency response from 15Hz to 50kHz
and with all of the dynamics and lifelike realism that HIFIMAN
headphones are famous for.
Compared with previous HIFIMAN headphones, the HE560 features
an all-new headband design, angled pads and rotation at the top of
the gimbals for better fit and improved comfort. HE560 is significantly lighter than comparable designs. The sound quality is also
improved with smoother treble, plenty of low frequency extension
with tighter deeper bass.
HE560 is higher in efficiency than some other high-end designs so
you don't need an extremely powerful amplifier to drive it. Also, the
HE560's robust build quality and newly-designed beveled earpads
will provide you with unsurpassed comfort as well as an exciting
listening experience.

Headband Adjustment
If the top of the headband does not touch your head, you can move
the sliding black block on each side of the headband to make it rest on
top of your head.
Earpad Design and Replacement
The HE560 earpad is a beveled design with varying thicknesses to conform to
the human head. Should you need to remove and reinstall the earpad (i.e. for
replacement) keep the thinner part on the front side of the ear cup and thicker
part on the back. Fit the mounting flange onto the rim of the ear cup. Then
press around the mounting flange to make sure the earpad snaps into place.
Set-up and Operation
1. Please allow for at least 150 hours of consistent playback to properly
break-in your new headphones. This break-in period does not have to be
at high volume.
2. The connectors utilize 2.5mm mini plugs on the headphone side. Push the
connector straight onto the socket. Repeat the process with the other mini
plug connector.
3. The supplied cable adapter with the large
”(6.35mm) jack is connected
with the typical headphone output of an amplifier or even better with a
headphone amplifier. Please be aware that many home amplifiers may
mute the loudspeaker output when a headphone is connected.
4. To clean your headphone, please use a soft, slightly damp cloth only. Do
not use any detergents and make sure not to let any fluid enter the open
sides of the headphone. The pleather headband can be maintained using
standard leather care products. When your ear pads become sufficiently
worn, you should replace them with a new pair, available through HIFIMAN
or through your local retailer. Note: The internal drivers do not require
maintenance. Any attempt to remove or modify them will void your
