^^^^ Yes please! :)

Impressions?  Anyone?

post #35 of 3302

Surely someone has heard these by now. 

post #36 of 3302

I'm actually considering these over HE6 as they are lighter

post #37 of 3302

I'd be suprised if the HE-6 and HE-4 sounded even remotely similar.

it's all a bit confusing to me.

i guess this is Fang's version of a portable HE-5LE...

He takes away half the magnets from the HE-5LE, gets rid of the XLR plug, and sells it for cheaper as the HE-4.

 

so...  it's probably twice as hard to drive...

 

if anyone has further info, please let me know so that i can stop scratching my head....

Not at all. HE-4 is only 1db less sensitive than HE-5, and EF5 and most HE-5LE amps can drive HE-4 very well. Jude has a pair HE-4 review sample in hand. Pls PM him and ask.

How much is an amp that will drive these going to cost?  The cans seem like a really good price for a new ortho.

The EF-5 can and it's around $350

Would any of these orthos be a good match with my bottlhead crack?  I am very interested in the HE-4 and HE-5LE.

As a MOT, I don't think he is allowed to state impressions of his own product.

At least on paper, this is not a very good match-up.  The Crack is designed for higher-impedance, higher sensitivity headphones.
