FWIW Justin_Time's review (pg 1 of thread) covers some of the effects he found when using different cables. He tried some silver cables and copper cables, and compared it to the stock cable. The 6moons review says stock cable = silver + copper.
 Probably not since the last time you asked, which was less than a week ago. I'm sure anyone who posts here will state what amp they're using for the 560.
Great review + background explanation! Wouldn't have appreciated dynamic drivers so much without it.
Thanks everyone for weighing in on the amp pairing comment, very helpful as I expect to be a happy secondhand HE-560 in time to come. FWIW I'll be trying out the Vali and Pico (DAC/amp, not the Slim or the Power) first and report back. 
 High gain? But aren't they relatively sensitive (as Jerg just pointed out, the diaphragm is thinner than HE-500's, so it should be more efficient)?
I have those pads on my Mad Dogs. Can confirm, they are great: comfort, isolation, and breathable.
I think it's the Focus Pad A that smooths out treble. Some users wrote so last few pages (sorry, I'm on mobile, hard to check)
 Sorry for late reply, time differences lol just woke up. Anyway I didn't want to do you the disservice of not responding:Sound stage and sound signature are different things; in general I understand "signature" to refer to the tone of a headphone, the frequencies emphasised. I think I know which Beyers you're referring to (770 and 880 or 990?); I've had my 880 for 6 years now and like it. The 770, I do not, because the sound sig is weird and treble is harsh. In any case,...
hifimanrookie: I don't think the design of a headphone necessarily predicts how it will sound. Whether dynamic or planar, open or closed, as a layperson I'm only interested in what the end result sounds like. The engineers choose their technologies for their own reasons, but I leave that to them. From everything I've read the HE-560 and Enigma seem to be on the same playing field, and that's why I'm keen to see which one is better--to that end, I'm grateful to folks like...
Less harsh treble and better comfort = better deal, in my book.   TooPoor, any chance you've got the HE-560 yet? Very interested in your comparison of them vs. Enigma.
