Glad to see almost every single 160X owner enjoyed the above track. I have to admit I was a bit surprised by the unexpected and almost overwhelming positive feedback I received. Thanks guys, you're the best!

Need more funds for Alpha Dog pre-order.

Those look beautiful, did they come with the case or did you buy the case separately?

anyone reciprocate my thought on Heaven VI sounds similar to Heaven S? I felt that they have that kind of "veil", and sounds thicker and more lively compared to Heaven V and Heaven C, respectively.

I just received my 1601sb, a day after I mailed off the loaners.

 

I tried a slightly bigger tip but still nothing near a real seal, so more boomboom without taking away from the mids.

They're awesome!beerchug.gif

Can you elaborate what you mean by "veil" compared to the Heaven V? Do you mean that as a good thing?

My Heaven V comes with the same case, only the Aging version comes with the leather case. I do find the case quite pointless, it's more decorative rather than practical....

There's a slightly recessed mid to my ears. In Heaven V, there isn't such an issue from my perception. I guess it's often comparable with HD600 vs HD650 kind of "veil".

That's surprising, I was under the impression that the Heaven series was more mid-centric. I'm having a hard time trying to decide between the V and VI but if what you say is true, I'll definitely choose the V.

Don't take my word for what it is. Everyone is bound to have their own user experience. To me, it may sound so. Well, it's still a toss up between V and VI. But the price difference is... well, over my place here, double.

If possible, try and order from pricejapan, the V is about $320, and the VI $420, and shipping shouldn't be too much.

This track, as you have so generously shared, is fantastically rendered by the PFIX's. I tried the track through the Kaede's, which, unsurprisingly, do not do it justice like the FAD's do. Thanks!!

So are the V and VI really that close in terms of sound quality and which one do you find yourself listening to more? I prefer the look of the V (and its much lower cost), just afraid that I'm gonna feel a need to upgrade to the VI later if I go with the V now...

IMRHO (R = Really), to pursue purity go for H-V, to pursue liveliness go for VI, go basic and enjoy the house signature which exists in all models, go for IV.
