HE-6 Loaner Program [EU-Version]

post #1 of 168
Thread Starter 

Dear Head-Fiers in the EU,


this is Jan Sieveking of Sieveking Sound and I am in charge of the EU side of the HE-6 loaner program. We have got one pre-production version of the HE-6 ready to ship out. As you can imagine the same rules apply that you have seen on Fang's post for the US version of this program.

  • You will be sent the HE-6 which is broken in by now for the duration of one week to try out as you like
  • You are asked to write about your experience, may it be good or bad, in this forum
  • You will then be asked to ship out the unit to the next in line and will have to pay insured shipping. Shipping may very well be international so be prepared that it might not exactly be cheap. Please also be aware that at least two other people will learn your home address so if you are concerned about this you might not want to participate.
  • Only those who have got a powerful headphone amplifier and possibly other high quality headphones should apply.


Please do not send me a private message here but write to my e-mail address Please include your username, full name and postal address and if necessary also a time period (i.e. do not put me on the beginning of the list as I am going on a four week vacation to Hawaii next week!) I shall try to build the list of participants in a way that means the minimum of cross-border shipping to keep cost for each individual user down.


Once we have got a list I shall publish this here and ship out to the first on that list.







EDIT: This is the list of participants. The HE-6 shall go to these members in the order as below. I have tried to keep international transport to a minimum and included personal travel plans as well as possible. If anybody on the list wants to change places please send an e-mail to my address above.


EDIT2: User "Anthonyfirst" had to drop out. We have added Col12 to the list. As he is in the UK we have put him in position 9 to make sure we don't have more international shipments than neccessary.

I´d be happy to review them. They will be directly compared to my Thunderpants and Etymotic ER4P, and possibly to a second set of Thunderpanys if I manage to receive it in time. Source is a Museatex Bitstream, and I am using a CKKIII amp.
