my silly guess:   he560 $899 he6     $1299 he7?   $1999 he1k   $2999
personally, i don't think the 009 needs a bhse (it being voiced for the 007mk1 cans) nor a high-end diy amp to sound 'best'. i've heard it thru a lowly, relatively speaking of course, srm-007tll and it sounded fantastic. even a woo ges makes the 009 sound great imo. but head-fi being what it is, a grounds for the connoisseur and obsessive- compulsive who must have the newest and highest priced offering to be sated, some folks look down with disdain and even contempt at...
yes, i'm thinking the exact same thing. with the yen losing ground on the dollar continuously, thanks to japan's monetary easing policy and improving economy in the usa,it wouldn't be a shock to see the 009 being sold at $2700+ later in the year.
personally, i'd be embarrassed to wear something so gaudy looking in my own home... i don't think my wife has anything so bling in her entire jewelry collection. my wife will probably experience envy/anger and buy a $2K vacuum cleaner to spite me.
 he probably subscribes to the adage, "If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all..."that's my guess.
 glad to hear you got the package. it goes to show how unreliable UPS can be sometimes. i paid UPS $4 extra dollars to have a required signature from the recipient.i guess i needed to pay extra for the recipient to be the person on the address label.... sorry about the inconvenience Whitetriton. anyways, hope you enjoy thecans.
the WestCoast unit is on its way to Whitetriton. happy days!
i've been auditioning the HE-560 i received from team HiFiMan for the past 10 or so days and i am confident in saying that i view this headphone as the best that HiFiMan has come up with in their planar line. it has some minor issues that i will point out below but the goods outweigh the bads. i used my sansui au-6500, au-8500 and pioneer 9100 speaker amps along with a good but long-toothed cia vda-2 and vac power supply being fed thru both cd transport and pc/usb/winamp....
a new HE-560 Touring Impressions/ Review thread is up in the headphones (full size) forum. all impressions and reviews are encouraged to be submitted on that thread once you're ready.
officially, it is, but you can contact HiFiMan and convince them to add you to the list.
