HiFiMAN RE-400 and HM-901 - Head-Fi TV - Page 2

post #16 of 40

I really liked the sound of the RE-272 but the ergonomics of the shells didn't quite work with my ears.  At $99, it should definitely be worth it to try the RE-400s.

 

AND:  The HE-6 are still on my short-list if the HD800's don't work out in the long run.

 

Go Dr. Fang, Go!!!!!!

Dr. Fang is younger and cooler than I imagined.

 

Yet I hope he doesn't release a new, kick ass planar for say, $400 dollars for 10 more years!

 

Because I might have to buy it.

Just a lot of functionality in it. I've been using anything from 256k up to FLAC on it (just to test it) and all formats sound pretty good.  The internal amp (even though stated there is something 'better' for multi-BA units on the way) drives my triple, quad and 5 driver customs pretty dang good direct out. Also handles the HE-300 dynamic driver and the HE-400 Planar driver units just fine.

I'm looking forward to the HE-400.

However, the HM-901 is a little bit expensive.

I would like to know how an portable player cost that much.

So, jokes aside, I had a chance to listen to the production HM-901 today and I do take back my previous thoughts of what I heard with the May '12 and Oct '12 prototypes. This production version did grasp my attention but admittedly it's with their tracks, not mine. I tried with my Tralucent 1Plus2 earphones. It won't be fair to comment on the sound since it was so short and it wasn't my tracks.

 

But I can comment on the shell, and at least from memory this product does feel more robust than the early prototypes. Kudos to Dr. Bian on this product.

 

HM-901 amp board. Looks like an AD8397 on this one (Model's hands: Frenchbat) :-

Will the HM-901 accept amp modules from the HM-801? They appear similar in shape.

I'd love any info or rumors on their next flagship. 

Can't find any info on this aside from a question on the hifiman service thread asking Eric about the new flagship and Eric replying "keep an eye on the website".

Is there any more info?

Can't believe Fang once teached in USA. Interesting guy!

The flagship Fang is referring to is the RE-600 in-ear at $399 MSRP U.S. It was slated to be released with RE-400 at CES but has been delayed. Hope to have it out this spring.
