For Sale:
Rare - Leather HE-6; Excellent Condition (SOLD!)

Will Ship To: Anywhere

Picked these up from a fellow headfi'er while back in a trade. Paired with my Minute EL-34 SE (which is also up for sale), these headphones where part of a chain that many at local meets considered among the best heard. So why sell? Sigh - more to experience :-) Chances are good I'll have an HE-6 again down the road (though chances are slim it'll be a leather), but I need the funds to continue the hunt. 

 

These include cable and Hifiman hard box. 

 

$900 + shipping + paypal fees (if any).

They were original HE6 prototypes, which were very limited in production. At release HE6 was changed to the glossy black-blue plastic material for cup / extender cap, instead of the leather seen here.

Thank you for the information. So the drivers are the same as the current HE-6?

Yep, drivers are the same. The wood on the end caps is perfect.

Wasn't the prototype slightly less efficient?  In any case it looks good.

I heard this too. My understand was, that a handful of production quality leather headphones were made before Fang decided to switch to the hard shells. In my listening, I haven't been able to perceive a difference between my HE-6 and current production ones (tonality, sound pressure for volume, etc.)
