Perfectly understandable when you consider VH fans are a dubious & sleazy lot.

I may have just had a thoroughly music moment but having some serious sonic firepower at my disposal right now, personally and on loan, I put the Heaven V in my ears and no more that 2 minutes into one crappy top 40 song, my heart was skipping beats and my eyes betrayed my inner sense of amazement and wonder.

If no one else answers this, I'll give it my best shot with the Heaven V that is supposed to be quite similar to the VI.



So I had a dream the other night. That I came across a legit Heaven VI online, limited stock sale for $178.98. So my gf is there and I turn to her and I go. "ok babe, I need your help. Its not really in the budget but its off of almost $500 and my Heaven V is supposed to be very very similar... Should I get it?" To which she responds "$178? Definitely get it." I tell her she's the best.

So I tell her I had this dream in real life and she stares at me for a while then goes "... You had a dream about headphones?" Well that was unexpected. So lightning quick I go "No! I didn't tell you because it was about headphones. I told you because I was happy that you were supporting me in our relationship."

She looked pretty skeptical lol.

FAD Heaven VI has a (very) slightly brighter, smoother mids and highs over the Hifiman RE-600. But both are amazing for their respective price range.

 

Design wise i'd take the Heaven VI any day over RE-600.

 

Bottomline, based on your budget, won't go wrong with either options. :)

 

Though a comparison with the HE-400 is a bit tough. One is in-ear, another headphone.

I think Mr Kenamori Takai should send complimentary sets of Pandoras to MuppetFace, james444, SoundFreaq, woodcans, cooperpwc & music_4321 for their (relentless) enthusiasm which has effectively led to FAD becoming the new Sony. (perhaps a complimentary set to swimsonny, too)

Interesting that FAD Europe's Christoph Umbricht used to be Director for Business Development for Audeo, but we all know how that turned out for Phonak... rolleyes.gif

We shouldnt settle for anything less than the Flagship Pandora X model either, hopefully it well share the notoriously painful to wear characteristics as the muramasa viii.

So by this reckoning Final Audio Design will go back to there previous venture of... making speakers..... or hearing aids.... by the end of the year?

 

Tom, what do you think of the whole, using BAs in a headphone concept, and also how are they going to implement so that they create the same volume as a 50mm dynamic driver? They must have some fun at FAD HQ...

I will accept any lowly models not good enough for the the sparrow sixsome.


I feel like this has been attempted before... I want to say it was AKG but I'd be talking mainly out of my ass.

I'm sorry, Ian, but you only have one pair of FAD phones (the Piano Forte Abomination IX), so you're not hardcore enough!   (joking aside, I don't know why I left out your name — perhaps I've unconsciously resented the fact you've not visited the KAEDE thread!  ;)  )

Yes. Pandora X with the 'up-sell' 'uber' cable, for sure.
