HE-6 Loaner Program - Page 55

post #811 of 903

UPDSTE - It looks that luck may be on my side (for a change), I will be receiving a production HE-6 next week! Thanks! The (two) next Head-Fiers are not available to take delivery of the prototype HE-6, thus it will allow me the opportunity to compare them. I will then be sending Skylab the production HE-6.

If we're getting productions into the lineup I'll take my spot back. Not sure where we're at with the order these days. mrarroyo is east and skylab is listed in west, so can someone clear the list up?

You did indeed get it wrong. The European program has started much later than the US program and we had a technical problem with the first demo unit which led to the inclusion of the speaker cable adaptor box for the current version. I returned the current unit to the last person who had not been able to finish the test. So - yes currently the EU loaner program has got the new version and it currently is in Italy. And no - we did not start over again.

 

Best regards,

Jan

This is an isolated event, from me it goes to Skylab who will take it to the meet in Chicago. Cheers.

At first listen, I really like the HE-6!  Very clean and open.  Sounds very neutral.  Nice!!!

 

More to come.

Do you still have the HE-6 kwkarth? How are those additional impressions coming along?

Today I received a package which contains the production HE6!  Thanks Fang for loaning them and although they have been on my head for less than 1 hour all I can say is that they are indeed as reported by Aaron (immtbiker). The production HE6 is significantly better sounding than the prototype. It will take me a few days of going back and forth between the two units to hear the nuances/differences but the production unit does everything better plus:

 

1. It looks much better.

2. It is much easier to drive.

3. It appears to be lighter, need to weight it.

4. Even the case is nicer.

 

I am currently listening to Tony Bennet and I am just enjoying the open/clear presentation. The bass has more impact and it is more defined. More to come but for now I leave you with the following pictures.

Enjoy. I miss them. Very little other's hold a candle to them.

 

I think that Fang hit on something really nice, here.

I haven't been following the thread closely anymore but I must have missed it if it was asked. Is that the stock cable on the HE6 on the left or an aftermarket?

Both units are using the stock cable as received from Fang.

 

Aaron, I agree that Fang has hit a major hit w/ the production HE6. Cheers.

Can't wait for some further impressions. They look gorgeous!

post #823 of 903

Thanks for the answer. That's a very nice looking stock cable there. I look forward to some more impressions between production and the test unit.

post #824 of 903
To be clearer both are stock cable but the new stock cable is significantly better than the old stock cable.

Sexy!  Any word on whether the headband is any smaller than the one on the HE-5LE?  I wear mine at the smallest adjustment and they're just a tiny bit too big for me.
