I thought they sounded very good - but there were two different "versions" at Can Jam - the final version will be somewhere in between these two versions.  So what I heard isn't likely to be the final version.


The housing is covered in a very nice black leather; otherwise they look the HE-5LE.  As such, they are very comfy.

Is it heavier than the HE5LE?


how much sound refinement over the 5LE? (like, major leap? baby step?)

Unfortunately, impossible to say really, since I was listening with an unfamiliar system and without the ability to compare.  But yes, better.

thanks for the pics!  where was the leather?  On the outside of the cups just for looks?  The pics look like plastic...

The cups are covered in leather, yes.

Had a Mini Meet this past weekend with Iron_Dreamer, Jasper994, LFF, Zippy2001, and I.   They wanted to check out the HE-6 as well as catching up with old friends.





Gear line up.




Eddie Current Equilibrato.




LFF enjoying the HE-6 through a Stello DA220 to the Grace m902.




Trying the HE-6 through the Lavry DA11 to the Eddie Current Equilibrato




Zippy2001 and LFF listening to the HifiMan HM-801 at the same time.  (GAME Amp module and line out to Pico Slim)





HM-801 ate a Sansa Clip+




The hazards of wearing universal IEM's.  Zippy2001 got silicone ear tips stuck deep inside his ears, LFF delicately removed them successfully.




Dinner at Five Guys afterwards.  I shouldn't have ordered the regular double burger...

haha nice it looks like you guys had a good time. music, food, and just chatting it up, what else more could you want :)

post #194 of 19805

 Nice pictures!


Will look forward to some impressions of the sonics as well!

I was worried when leather was first mentioned since I prefer cloth on pads, but then I saw the detailed picture above showing the leather on the housing and was pleasantly surprised. Very tasteful and a bit luxurious. A nice alternative to the plastic Sennheisers and the metal Beyers/Grados of recent debuts.
