"The HE-300 also sounded fine plugged into my iPod Classic. That open quality is a rare treat, compared with my usual in-ear headphones. Neil Young's Live at Massey Hall, 1971 is a gorgeous, audiophile quality recording, and it was sounding so good it was hard to believe it was coming out of an iPod. Not all full-size headphones are suitable for portable use, but the HE-300 definitely is. As you can see, Hifiman has done it again, the HE-300 has set a new standard of performance for its price class."

"I really think that the musicality aspect can go head to head with the big boys and even beat some of them."
"Pair it with anything from the Burson HA-160 to the ALO Continental, and the result has been nothing short of pure musicality."

"The HE-300s are one of those rare occasions where good performance meets a very attractive pricepoint. Based on the performance these headphones deliver, they are sure to become a massive success. At $299 these are a steal, pure and simple."
