HiFiMAN-HE-400

If you’re quickly passing by this post because you see the $300+ price tag at the bottom, we urge you to wait! These headphones are actually cheap. Your eyes are wandering off again, aren’t they? Now you think this is some kind of sales pitch where we tell you included with these cans is a set of knives that slice through a watermelon in mid-air (perfect for your next watermelon slicing competition), but the reason we say they are cheap is because they happen to be one of the most affordable sets with planar magnetic drivers we’ve ever come across. Unlike the headphones you own now (which almost definitely use dynamic drivers), these guys deliver full, detailed audio directly into your head. They do so with magnets, an ultra-thin diaphragm and—we suspect—magic. If you never joined the planar magnetic cult, now’s the cheapest time do so.

 You can’t have a fall evening without a fire. And you can’t have a fire without a Cowboy Cauldron. They’re built from solid plate steel, meaning they’ll last a lifetime or two and they come in four different sizes with elevated basins that can be adjusted to any height. We’re going with The Urbaan Cowboy® because it’s perfect for entertaining at home.  With a 30″ diameter basin, it is more than large enough to have a nice fire, but still small enough to pack into a pickup truck and take it with you.  Can you imagine the envy when we bust this puppy out at a tailgate or the beach? We haven’t seen a more handsome fire. You?  Best of all, Cool Material readers get an exclusive deal.
