And in reponse to the *highs* question, it's not piercing so much as unreal. If the high is piercing on a recording then so be it. I want to hear that
But when highs on the HD800 ring out with perfect attack and decay and actually sound like the instrument being played I have noticed so far on the HE-6 they sound less real- the attack is there but the decay is missing and the tone is more digital sounding for lack of a better word.

I see what you mean. I think that F3 takes care of that a bit. It is not perfect and when i plug in the HD800 I can see the slight difference there but it does not bother me when I just  listen with He6 and not compare. I actually think the HE6 presents better defined contours, and the decay is there, but slightly less .  Overall though, while  I am inexperienced with tubes, it sounds like this is a problem one can more easily rectify with tubes.

Are you going for the child/aging parent analogy here?  Or the other use of the "caring for/taking care of daddy" phrase?  It's a little disturbing as vague as you left it.
Yeah, that's it. biggrin.gif

I blew mine setting up a new DAC. Put the full signal on my amps by mistake for less than a second but enough. Cust. Service is working on it but it's been an agonizing wait. Thanks to prepro, I've had the HE-4 and HE-500, T-1 & HD 800s to get me through. cool.gif

I put in 50 watts of Class A power @8 ohms into my HE-6 by mistake but it survived.

What happened? A month? Seems unduly long.

I"m not sure what's going on. I get the word everything is in order and to check with Ms T. Ms T says we wait for shipping from China. I dare not cause a tiff because HiFiMan is offering a great deal for a non warranty repair.

I found MS.T a pleasure to deal with.

Happy, would this be your 3rd pair?

If this is correct, what led to the demise blink.gifof the first two?

How is this turned into an attack on Ms T? She is only the communicator of HiFiMan. I have no issue with her or them. I'm missing my 6s.

My comment on her is not a negative one, though I communicated with her only once when I bought my 6, over 2 years ago. She was very pleasant, easy to communicate with and made sure I received my 6 without any issues.

I'm not sure I follow. Did I miss something? The two of us actually paid compliments to Ms.T - I bought a gift from her last year. I'm still pulling for the prompt return of your cans. wink.gif

Sorry guys, guess I'm a bit sensitive on the topic. Just wanting to get my headphones cause nothing else equals them. I've never had a slow (my view) response from HiFiMan before. Now that I've ran into a bit of a slow time, I'm anxious. No ill will intended.
