HE-5..initial musings - Page 37

post #541 of 1668
I was thinking of the fact that it's three weeks before Christmas.

Ordered mine on the 2nd and got shipping confirmation earlier today.

Here's to hoping that EMS treats them well!

Why does it arrive and dispatch from the sorting center twice?
post #544 of 1668
Got mine and burning in. A word to new owners- I suggest at least 3-4 hours of run in time before listening to anything as mine sounded quite bad with out of box use (much better now). I have never heard such a transition from bad to good in a new headphone.
Also, to those using aftermarket cable or even first connecting the stock cable, don't over torque the bolt on the nut as it can (and did on mine) turn the nut inside the housing, not allowing as tight a connection as possible (good enough though it seems, hopefully).
Plenty comfi on my big head but not to D7000 comfort levels.

I should have mine in a few days. Its made it through US Customs and its on its way to me.

I'd be interested in any comments you have comparing the HE5 to the D7000.

I fully expect the D7000 to be destroyed

I learned my lesson, I need a few days first to hear both (but Kabeer is probably right at this early point).
Kooky amounts of detail.

Mine showed cleared customs Sunday and I received them today, FYI- probably tomorrow for you (direct signature required).

Damn! My tracking still hasn't changed from the second despatch.

Slightly off topic, but the EHHA has got to be one of the best amps ever. My HP-1s sound so dang good with this amp that I peed my pants a little the first time I heard it.

I'm in the process of buying a new home, and moving to a new city, but as soon as things calm down in early January I will get the HE5 from Fang and do a thorough review for everyone. I'm no pro at writing reviews, but you have got to start somewhere.
