HE-6 Loaner Program - Page 58

post #856 of 903

The wood is nice, but not if it cracks.

Luckily mine have stayed the test of time.

 

Sorry Maxvla, that's what happens when I use my laptop at 1700 without reading glasses.

 

Miguel, please do tell us that that is a reflection on the cups.

I'm on my third HE-5 because of driver/perhaps cable connector issues, but no wood cracking issues with any of them. I really think that was somewhat overblown. That experience did teach me that the extended break-in period of the HE-5 was psycho-acoustic, as it was only an issue (for me anyways) with the first pair. And it was a rough break-in but totally worth it IMO.

That looks like a reflection to me, though I see how it could look like a big ding.

If you think the 5's are totally worth it, then you will be shocked how much better the "prodo" 6's are. You'd be hard pressed to find anything that sounds anywhere as near as good as they do.

They're amazing.

Guys, it is a reflection of the two young nubile young models (21 and 23) that moved next door. They need a father figure and I oblige them by allowing them to sit on my lap in the bikinis while I tell them stories of the "old days".

Ah, the old "Swedish Bikini Team" scenario. I'm glad that they leave a nice "impression" (corny joke inserted here).

Yeah I already requested to be put on the pre-order list for these. I was told by Ms. T. yesterday that there was no such official list as of yet but that my request would be forwarded to "management" which I assume means Fang. Pricing seems to be somewhat confirmed for early adopters that are HE-5 purchasers at least but date of availability is bit of a tease so far. If they please me more than the protos then I can see some changes coming in both my headphone collection and goals of attainment.

 

I am ready for my shock therapy  !

Immtbiker,

 

Are you saying, the production HE6 sounds better to you than your Omega1 + BHKE combination ?
 

post #864 of 903

Yes it does. But take into account that the Omega !'s are a bit bass shy.

post #865 of 903

Wow.... looks like I should wait to hear the HE6's before I mortgage the house again for an electrostatic setup.

They have arrived. Initial impressions are very favorable. I like the soundstaging.

Well it seems I have developed a rattle in the right side somehow. Something loose and rattling around that's quite distracting. I can take them apart and see what's wrong and fix it, but thought I would ask for permission from Head-Direct first.

 

Otherwise these are great sounding cans. Fantastic soundstaging. Clear tight bass.

Sorry to hear, could it be the cable connection! Hope Fang chimes in soon, you may wish to send him a PM. Good luck, btw I am loving the production HE6!  Fang if you see this may I suggest you use black leather on the top as well as the bottom of the headband, it would be nicer looking if you ask me. Thanks.
