HE-6 Loaner Program - Page 21

post #301 of 903

Yes, once again, thanks for those nice photos Ed. Certainly, the HE-6 is one of the nicest looking headphones I've seen in a long time. They look well built too.

Of course. When I said "abroad" , I didn't mean "with a broad". 

 

Saying abroad, just sounds cooler, more professional.

Looks-wise I still prefer the original HE5's wood.

This HE-6 Loaner program seems to have fallen flat and lost momentum. This is not doing a service to the Head-Fi community. Head-Fi'ers involved in this program need to step up and fulfill their responsibility to the community.

I don't know. Due to shipping delays there should be a minimum of one Impressions post every two weeks for each loaner that is out in the field. How many loaners are there? 1 East, 1 West, Other Continents?

X2. Do we even know where the east He6 is any more. I Know El Doug had it almost 3 weeks and we still have not seen any impressions

I got the West HE-6 today.

 

There was a lot of dust, lint, & hair on the earcup cushions, so much that I actually bothered to sit down and try to pick some of it off before putting the headphones on my head. I seriously have to wonder where the headphones have been so far - well actually it'd probably be better if I didn't know.

 

I've been listening for about an hour so far on a B22 and it sounds ok but not exactly what I was hoping for personally and only further listening will determine if I want to buy my own pair or not. I will say right now that I definitely prefer my OII/BHSE (and the Grado HP2 also) at least when it comes to classical music (not yet sure about other music types).

i've been intentionally staying out of the thread and refraining from reading any impressions until i've received them and have had some time with them on my head.  that being said, i'm very excited to hear these phones.

I did keep the cans for 2 weeks instead of 1 (not sure where you came up with 3), and for that I humbly apologize - I am really on the fence about buying a pair!  I am currently editing a rather lengthy (at least for me) set of impressions, which I sure hope help the community

 

The cans are currently in transit, in fact I believe they will be arriving in NC sometime today.  Don't get your knickers in a knot :P

Well, I did let Nikongod crotch them before packing them up.   J/K 

 

I cleaned them up a bit b4 packing them up, short of vacuum cleaning them.  In hindsight, I should've probably vacuumed up the interior of the case, it seems to be quite the dust magnet.

 

BTW, be careful when picking "hairs" from the outer and inner ear cups.  The tiny "white" ones are not hairs, they seem to be fine polyfil fibers used in the batting inside.  There are a lot of them everywhere on the inside and outside.  They get caught easily on the inside of the case and pull out, in fact one time it started pulling a small puff of white fiber with it.  I carefully trimmed it and pushed it back in gently.

If everyone kept them two weeks I think Fang would be upset. Baka1969 convinced Fang to do this program and Fang was not so sure he wanted to do it. I think if we want to see future programs like this we all should stick to the format Fang set up. One week and impressions or a review to be posted. I for one would like to see these programs continue. Of course it only opinion. But I feel that this program has lost some steam.

I know that I would most likely have to buy a seperate speaker amp/receiver to power the headphones but that's no biggy to me. I would be using them soley for movies on the Realiser.
