Quick question: is the he-6 voiced similar to the he-500?

Has anyone compared the HE-6 to the HE-560 using the Master 9 amplifier?  I would appreciate your comments on how they compare.

I'm curious on comparisons between these two headphones as well.  I'd  like to hear from people who own both instead of audio site reviews where new a lot of times trumps old.

Here's a C/P of some very quick impression with the Ragnarok

There's no comparison to my ears, the 6s are better.
I always found the production 560 to be shouty and slighty bass light. Heck, I barely listened to them ever since they came. Probably because my Lavardin integrated came back from repair at the same time and the HE-6 got most of my listening time ever since (with some HE-5LE in the mix).

Anyway, the HE-6 is more 3D, better textured, more detailed and overall more natural (bass/mid/treble). The pre-prod HE-560 were more focused, better tonally, but that was before I got the Rag (or Lavardin) and did the felt mod / focus pads / partial grill mod on the 6s.

The 560s will be for sale tomorrow.

with the possible exception of comfort the HE-6 is superior to the HE-560 across the board out of the Master 9....not even really close....IMO of course
