Well at least the price whent down a  little. $199 isn't so bad. $150.00 would be prime though ;).

Anyone can take a guess when the slim will be available online?

Either of the Hifiman players will easily sound better then any Apple players it is as simple as that.

Not everyone will agree here though. While I agree with you many don't like a very warm and laid back presentation. Some will prefer the ipods lol.

The choice of a earphone will or can change the sound coming from the Hifiman. Also most dont know anything but Apple and most use the stock ear buds and say it sounds great!

To be fair thought the stock earbuds aren't so bad. I mean they really aren't anything special either. I gave them a try since I had a new pair on the side collecting dust. Its not as bad as some make them out to be. I think also fit will have a big effect on the sound of them. I couldn't get the best fit with them but I could tell the sound was half decent. I mean if I was in a real pinch I could tolerate them for just background music lol. But when comparing them to my IEMs there is no comparison to be fair so that much I agree with you...

Why poor? It's the same great player in a slightly, yet noticeably, slimmer profile. My HM-601 was stolen along with my RE-ZEROs. I recently bought both again from head-direct's

 eBay account and I was shipped a 601 express. The back is flat unlike the original 601 which was slightly raised and the emblem on the back says HIFIMAN express in a new sleeker font. Other than that, it's the same.

 

Although, one firmware issue that is upsetting is the auto power-off feature now only gives options for 30mins, 1hr, 2hrs, 3hrs, & 4hrs, which is totally unpractical. No one would have their player on standby for that long. My old one was set for three minutes, and this one is too, by default, but once you change it you can't go back.

 

Haven't seen or heard anything about the 4gb model but at $200, that sounds exciting. I don't even use the on board flash anyway.

Congrats. please may you post a HD pictures or movie, I still have my 601, and enjoy it from time to time, only with my TTVJslim....

Interesting.  It looks evident that Fang's approach is to permanently replace the standard HM-601 all together with the slim.

 

Regarding the firmware, which I assume it comes with v7 as default, you can install a previous version to regain some lost functionality.

Curious.  Do you not find the sound too warm using your 601 with the TTVJ Slim?

Yeh you are right! and that's why I said I enjoy it sometimes, the mids sound like nothing I have with this setup,they overshadow everything else, but it is fun with some music and with my originals.... 

post #1064 of 1379

anyone else got a slim version from head-direct ?

post #1065 of 1379

I got one. Still not sure though if the charging time is the same (9 hours). Version is .08

 

Does it really get to warm with the HM601+TTVJ Slim? Now i'm having second thoughts of getting onefrown.gif
