HifiMAN HE-6 Planar Magnetic Headphone - Page 744

post #11146 of 19433

Strategy :   :

 

If I were starting out fresh, HE-6 in hand and no amp in sight, I'd pursue a quality vintage integrated/receiver amp for a few hundred dollars first. And then proceed (with patience) other options on the landscape be they speaker amps or dedicated head-amps.

 

Never go grocery shopping on an empty stomach. :wink_face:

Some designs can run very close to the rails, and there may be regulators/multipliers inside bumping it up. 

 

2 watts is plenty of power. If it had the current capacity that'd be a 25W info 4 ohms, which is what I have and it's more than enough.

Originally, I arrived home with the intent to get dinner and place the pads on later that night. We all know it didn't happen that way :dt880smile: I dropped my gear on the floor; counter, and immediately swooped and swapped!

He-6 arrived. Plain cardboard shipping box with the 'hifiman' black box directly inside no product box. Is this normal? Also bot wires to the earpieces are labeled 'L'. Not sure right from left. Is these legit? Paid 1300 on amazon and expecting something more 'official'. Ear pads are very stiff foam.
