If musicman recommended it, it should be great.  Are you going to use the Mytek's pre amp section?

HE-6, the very best there is.

 

 

When you absolutely, positively got to hear every detail in the music, accept no substitutes.

Decided to use the pieces of adhesive provided from Audeze and attach the pads directly to the housing:

Looks pretty good. do you feel confident it'll hold up over time? I also notice your little felt triangle looks a little cut off and isn't in the usual spot from what I've seen among us. Did you do that or did it come that way?

Parts of the foam triangle disintegrated so I just peeled it off. That slice of felt is what's under the foam triangle. It's in the usual spot but I swung the cut around 180 for applying adhesive.

It's very secure. The only way I see being able to take off the pad is prying or using a solvent.

Is the adhesive strips the only means of holding the ear pads ?? Is there no other way to attach the pads that is more secure??

Not the only way but they are very secure. My way just uses the least amount of material should give the tightest seal.
post #10377 of 14887
Ok thanks . I'm sure it's tight . I was just wondering .

If you don't like your SA 3.9e I will take it from your hands.

So, here I am in the HE-6 thread again.

 

About to buy a second set of HE-6, having sold my first earlier this year (I've seen loads of other Head-Fiers do similar full circles like this, but this is my first time).

 

Basically I sold the first set since I always turned the volume up on them to really enjoy them (running from an Audio-GD Ref 10), and while I absolutely LOVED them, I decided I needed to protect my hearing so let them go.

 

Since then everything I have/have had just doesn't do it for me like the HE-6...

 

Question for you folks: if driven sufficiently well, is it possible to get the same kind of performance out of the HE-6 at lower listening volumes?

 

If the answer is yes, then I'm all in, selling nearly all of the my other desktop headphones and just doing whatever I need to in order to drive them to my satisfaction.

 

 

 

(with that in mind, I'm thinking to use the Ref 10 as a pre-amp, and wondering what amp to use...)

Yes, absolutely possible for high performance at low volume listening. All I do is listen at relatively low volumes compared to most. You will need a speaker amp to get the most out of it.
