HifiMAN HE-6 Planar Magnetic Headphone - Page 758

post #11356 of 19433
Really well I heard there was a new one. Coming but I was hoping for a top tier one . Not a lower model. That's disappointing , as maybe they could not do better than the, .
And thanks people.

This ^^^ is true for me also.

I have compared to 500 with the 6 and there is no comparison. The 6 beats the 560 in treble out of the gate. Both were powered by the same speaker amplifier side by side.

I mean the 500 not 560.

Yes, their microsuedes. A trusted member here told me the 007 pads don't sound nearly as good as the microsudes.

One of favorite albums on the He-6 :cool:

 

One of my favorites of all time :)

 

Amazing on the HE6's you say? I'm probably going to wait for the successor to the he6s since I just got the HE500s a couple months ago. The atmosphere is just jawdropping on that album with the HE500s.

:sigh: After watching the SLAM of the HE-6 get hijacked with the pad swap, I dunno.... feelin' a bit hesitant. However, if I could crack your extreme work schedule and access your wizardry, I'd be open to getting the mods done. Likely, at your hand with you nearby, I don't think I'm in the mood to ship 'em anywhere.

 

Will look for you on the other side (PM)....

Physically, build quality, reliability. In fairness to his 6s, no other headphone invites you to consider speaker amps that shows what they can do. There would be far less mention about the QC if they played well with headphone amps. evil_smiley.gif

:dt880smile: What an indictment.... I love it! But if you're :wink_face:listening reading this thread, Dr. Fang, the SMC style connectors gotta go!!!
