Here in the netherlands the hd800 is 999euro the he6 1299euro..i only wished the he6 would be 999 euro also Maybe one day soon..i heard a rumor that dr. Fang is working on a challenger for the lcd3..so maybe the he6 price will go down a bit then just as the he500 did and the he300 when the he400 came out..let us keep our fingers crossed
The HE-6 is more than up to snuff. In fact the LCD-3 is now tied for my 2nd favorite headphone. I didn't know he was working on a different headphone altogether - more like cosmetics to the same HE-X drivers. I could be wrong.
HE-6 --> (HD800 / LCD-3) --> T1
