HifiMAN HE-6 Planar Magnetic Headphone - Page 1013

post #15181 of 15185
Hi I am a bit of a novice, when it comes to HE-6, does HE-6 come with a balanced cable, or do I need to get commercial cable say from Norneaudio or moon-audio. I am getting a Ragnarok and would like to get the HE-6, for when it's properly matched to a good amp, I hear the sound is Devine. Hope everyone has a fun moment listening to some fantastic music.smily_headphones1.gif

The stock cable has a 4 pin xlr and an extension that is a standard rca connection. So you have both. I think that the balanced is 5 foot and the extension is 2 or 3. The stock is not bad but you can do better.

Thanks for the information.

You can do a lot better than the stock cable, in MHO. The one I had made by Norne Audio is the Vanquish. It is really good not only with the HE-6, but with the 560. And Norne might even have a better one than that which I'm anxious to try.

 

I would like to hear the 6's with the Ragnarok. I'm driving mine with the Mjolnir... excellent partners!

 

Jump in... the water is fine.

The headphones have since been modded so they look different now - I need to take new pictures...

 

Man I really have to hear the HE-6 on a speaker amp like that.
