To owners of 500, 5le and 6 - please do check impedance of your headphones. I just measured 5le and these have 51 ohms. On paper its on pair with hE6 and much more than catalogue note. Is it better pair beacuse of thinner coils? Does it have any effect on for example better sound quality or it means nothing?

Means nothing - also measuring impedance of headphone with a multimeter is not accurate I heard.

 

When using a multimeter, mine measure at ~67 ohm.

Doesn't sound thin or shrill right?

post #9327 of 15253

no.

 

i think the HE-6 are a little on the bright side, but no the mids are warm and no thinness at all, similar body to HE-6.

 

and the bass, omg this is the best bass i've heard, ever. 

 

like the woolyness of the HE-500 is gone, and its monsterous, super tight and powerful, like unreal,  like beyer T1 on acid kinda good.

wow the bass is probably the most impressing thing on the HE-6 so far, like i can hear bass notes i haven't heard in my songs before, u really hear every little bit of bass, and its not muddy. like small little rumbles and stuff.... and its controlled and neutral, like a well balanced system, not like a fostex th 900 or denon kinda bass rumble.

Wow.............from someone who has experienced all the TOTL's like you have to say that...................

more impressions to come though.....

 

seems like the bass improved a ton on all my headphones now with this amp.... but so far i think the HE-6 and its bass is whats really impressing me right now.
