This is something a bit unique in the world of electrostats. 

A system that costs under 2000€ total, that is tonally very well balanced and shows off the strenghts of e-stats very well:

Enormous speed and detail capabilities, stage depth and width, and still not fatiguing at all over long periods.

Reviewers are saying:

Headfonics.com:

If you want an open sounding and very spacious performance with bags of detail and a clever top-end tuning that saps any potential edginess and heat then the Jade II headphones are nigh on perfect in that regard. Definitely a tasty choice for the hi-fidelity ranks.

Soundphilereview.com:

The clean and detailed listening experience that the HiFiMAN Jade II offer is superb. In general, I find the HiFiMAN Jade II to be quite exceptional – they offer a truly comfortable, detailed, relaxing yet accurate portrayal of music which is hard to come by.

Majorhifi.com:

The Jade II “threads the needle” between being true to life, accurate and uncolored, while also being relatively forgiving toward not-so-good recordings.

What does this mean?

The black line is something that could be called the „ideal“ curve of what a headphone should sound like. The Harman Research Group has a range of scientific studies around audio and the human perception of it - one of which was, how should a headphone sound like to be favored by a majority of people, no matter the age or other demographic variables? This result is called the Harman target.

From left to right we have the sub bass, bass, mids and then the curve finally tilts upward where the treble begins - this part of the frequency spectrum gets amplified naturally by the shape of the human ear. 

As an open-back, electrostatic headphone, it does not have endless oomph in the subbass region but still a sufficient amount. It is extremely neutral in the mids, with a slight emphasis between 3-4kHz.
