What about the white label with numbers on it? Is that normal too?
A couple quick questions for you all.
1. If I remove the earpads off the HE-6, this is what it looks like on the inside.
Is this normal? I'm guessing that the shiny plate below the mesh is gold, but what is that think piece of black sponge (?) that is covering a quarter of the diaphragm? This black sponge is on both earcups, placed in the upper quadrant. Do your HE-6 also have this black sponge cover, or is mine weird?
Also, is there anything else unusual about my HE-6, compared to your HE-6?
2. Is it supposed to be this difficult to replace pads? Each pad has four protruding ledges (?) for holding the pads in place. It is easy to insert the first 2 ledges into the cup, but the third one becomes hard, and the fourth becomes is really hard to properly fit, since I have to apply a lot of force to somewhat bend the earpad while keeping the other three ledges locked in place. Is this just how it's supposed to be done?
The white label shows that your pair of HE6s' drivers were made August 12, 2013, and is the 27th/28th drivers of the batch that was made in that particular run.
How are you guys even allowed to have this stuff in your offices at work?! I constantly have to deal with people which makes it impossible for me to have this stuff at work.
I'm always amazed at this same thing. The last few jobs I held, after hours would have been the only possibility. For those that can get away with it, cheers!
I'm pretty much my own boss and I can't even do it. I have no idea how others can.
