A few months is a long time... at least for HiFiMan.

Is this little piece of tape normal?

Not really. If your father and mother are both only children, then you can have more than one child. You are allowed to have multiple children in any case, but you will have to pay a lot more in taxes. That's what my Chinese friend just told me.

Correct you are.

I think you used FLAC files for your review but did you also try other types (MP3, AAC etc.) to see if it makes a huge difference?

It's very weirdly out of place I'll admit but I won't mess with it, strange though, is the tape there for all HE-6s or do they adjust certain things depending on the pair?

No, because frankly if you are contemplating a system at this level of price and performance, acquiring lossless and high-res files should be your first priority.  Many analogies could be made, but there is no sense in handicapping a high-end system with low-quality source material (including, but not limited to lossy encoded files).
