Hi guys,

 

Could you tell me that the cable included in HE-6 phones is one of the Toxic cables?

What is the quality of it.

 

I intend to use it for my He-400.

No, it's just a Copper OCC cable with 4 pin XLR male + female Yongsheng, and a furutech Fp-704 1/4" TRS biggrin.gif. Most Copper OCC cable looks like that. Toxic's copper cable use Neutrik 4pin/Viablue/oyaide 1/4 TRS (depends on what you ask for).

 

Quality is good I guess, a bit long and the XLR plug is a bit heavy.

I hope Mr. Bian is paying close attention to how happy people are with their Jergpads.

 

Mine, even fragile, survived a road trip in the included felt bag in a tightly packed suitcase, phew!

It seems Fang still frequents Head-fi quite regularly on his personal account (http://www.head-fi.org/u/43701/nankai), last online 4 days ago. So there is a good chance he lurks a lot of the Hifiman product related threads.

Well, I listen to plenty of female vocals, they sound warm and vibrant, yet still crisp, something I do enjoy. Before that I used Xonar Essence STX, which combined with HE-400 ended up with a really bright and cold sound, somewhat fatiguing and unpleasant.

Does anyone know if the warranty is transferrable on the HE-400? 

post #8722 of 18673

Maybe a stupid question, but i wonder...is it possible to stick my he-400's to the M&M stack to a turntable (record player)? Through USB, obviously.

only the magni through a phono amp and rca to the magni, no modi .

Records are analog to begin with, no need for the dac.

It should be.  IME, HiFiMan has been great about repairs (I've owned quite a few HiFiMan phones and only my RE262 ever needed to be replaced) on second hand units.  They usually just require you to show a proof of purchase/receipt.. so if you're buying from someone else, have them forward you their proof of purchase/receipt (from an authorized reseller).

Non transferable.

So I was looking into Jerg's pad mod... Does anyone know if it's necessary to do the grille mod as well? Or would the pad's already be a significant improvement without messing with the stock grille?

post #8728 of 18673

I hear that the result of doing the grill mod is more subtle than the jergpads.

The pad mod will offer the biggest difference/change. IMO

Sounds good. Will be looking forward to doing the mod sometime today.
