HifiMAN HE-6 Planar Magnetic Headphone - Page 614

Thanks Clemmaster.

I just took the calculator to find out what the measured sensitivity if the HE-6 is, based on Inner Fidelity's number: to reach 90dB it takes 19.69mW. Am I right, that this translates to a sensitivity of about 77.5dB (at 1mW) ?

If so, then it's MUCH lower than spec'ed (83.5dB).

Correct

post #9199 of 15173

Ouch! That's 6dB less than stated...

 

However, I still enjoy the HE-6 (even) right out of my HM-801 w/ Balanced amp module. Doesn't play it loud, but tonality is spot on.

I just bought a used Krell KAV-400xi to go with my HE-6. It does 200wpc @8ohms so that's roughly 30wpc @50ohms.

 

I can't wait til it arrives! I can finally have a fully balanced setup and I'll hide in my cave til the next hifiman flagship gets released bigsmile_face.gif

impossible.

1) i don´t have yet the he-6 and the he-5le

2) too much work

3) Other just-as-valid excuses.

no excuses

I remember when I had all three at the same time.  What are your plans, are you keeping them all?

That's some good looking work on the 5s.  I think you can still get the 5s from SAA.  Nor sure if they are NOS, new or what though..
