goa trance. this is some trippy stuff.
trippy is good!
i love goa, psy, and full on! like this!
e mantra arcana. it is so intense it scares me. new school goa trance. electro sun is good stuff! he-6 is king of the trippy stuff. I listen to all kinds of music and my he-6 is good with anything I find, but for the trippy stuff, it is exceptional cans. I was tempted by an audeze lcd3 but I tried a lcd2 and found the audeze sound not to my liking. I like to have airy cans.
good ol infected mushroom. I listen to this stuff during my night shifts.
I'd like to give recognition to the four members who were key in my HE-6 experience. Each encouraged me to climb aboard, strap in and hang on.... what a ride.

Exciting weekend ahead of you! Enjoy
His itinerary and gears make me wanna fly out to meet over piano jazz and pizza!
To me, the difference between HE-500 and HD-800 is a lot more significant than between HE-6 and HD-800. Compared to the 500, the 6 is to my ears significantly more transparant, open and less dark sounding, with bass that's a bit tighter. The treble is better on the 6 but can approach harshness though and the mids (especially vocals) are not a bit forward such as with the 500. This last quality, btw, is what makes me like the 500 so much. I think you'll be an instant convert after receiving them, just remember to power them correctly and give them a proper burn in. The 'manual' that comes with them suggests a minimum of 150 hours. That's a bit rich imo but they do need at least 50 hours to really settle in so reserve judgment until you're there.
All 3 are very good headphones, each with its specific strong points.
Congrats! Would like to hear your impressions with the CR-2020. Must be one of the sexiest receivers out there
The Headroom suggests 500 hours will get you there (the taming of treble). Whatever it takes, I have never been on such a roller coaster with cans before in my few years of head-fi! The HE-6 is quite the character...
Who knew spending so much money on the HE-6 is actually going to save money? This is the first time I have don't feel like buying headphones. I may even be done with this hobby for a long long while. Feels good.
