- 9.2mm Dynamic Topology Drivers
- Higher-Grade Drivers over RE800
- Nano-Particle Construction in Driver
- Less Distortion than Balanced Armatures
- Wide frequency response of 5 Hz to 20 kHz
What is it?
Presented in a silver finish, the HIFIMAN RE2000 are in-ear headphones sporting a 9.2mm dynamic-topology driver—one that is of a higher grade than even the RE800. This proprietary construction uses a nano-particle coating applied to its surface to give the RE2000 the clarity and precision of earphones sporting multiple-driver designs, but without the crossover issues and coherency problems often created by multiple drivers.
With this topology driver, distortion common in other dynamic drivers is sufficiently mitigated. Likewise, whereas balanced-armature drivers can sometimes deliver a flat soundstage and produce high levels of distortion, the dynamic-topology design presented herein provides a smooth frequency representation, offers an exciting dynamic response, and again, minimizes distortion. The RE2000 carries a frequency response of 5 Hz to 20 kHz and operates at a sensitivity of 103 dB. The RE2000 also features a removable cable.
How does it work?
The Topology Driver: HIFIMAN’s utilization of advanced depositional technology and research makes for a driver unlike any other in the world. With the creation of Topological, Nano scale layer application technology, upon a driver diaphragm, allows for the manipulation of sound wave creation like never before. No other Driver technology allows for such control and precision resulting in clarity, detail and nuance.
What is a Topology Diaphragm? The “Topology Diaphragm” or “Topology Driver” refers to the diaphragm with a special Nano particle coating applied to its surface. The distribution of the coating has distinct geometric patterns. By varying the surface pattern, compound used, the thickness or geometric pattern sound wave formation can be manipulated to achieve the desired audio effect and control. 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 Ideal Dynamic Driver: The Topology diaphragm structure used by HIFIMAN greatly reduces the uncontrolled diaphragm distortions, enabling the operational performance of dynamic IEM’s to an approach to an ever superior, trend towards perfect wave control.
24k Gold Edition: While Brass made for the perfect housing material for the acoustics, it did not quite convey the fine richness of its audio output. Thus, the RE2000 24k Gold Edition has been electroplated to give it a lustrous sheen that befitted the golden, rich audio quality inside.
The Perfect Blend of Acoustic Drama and Clarity: The creation of countless prototypes and user testing combined with the Topological driver pattern changes mean your ear encounters the sound wave precisely as the original recording creator intended.
Radical New Housing for a Radical New Driver: The shape of the housing is again an example of blending industrial design, comfort and a striking visual. Providing excellent fit, comfort and isolates, all to give you the most wonderful of listening experiences.
First ever IEM with removable cables: The RE2000 can replace cable to meet the requirements and preferences of all listeners.
