But its probably even more rare then a he90!
i am also waiting for new to come higher end headphones next year..being from hifiman specifically..and i heard directly from hifiman themselves that they are working on some new higher end over ear headphones...so i am guessing a he7 or he600 or a jade (as u just mentioned)...
I got that thread subscribed for some time now, but thanks :]
Yeah read it many times, David knoows his stuff.
Also, that new rumoured HiFiMAN headphone is said to be the Jade II, so I am coming off that. othing confirmed yet but from a few sources it seems likely that their next flagship will be an electrostatic HP.
Definitely the HE Audio Jade was a remarkable headphone, the problem is that every pair sounded almost differently and that they were unreliable.
The HE-6 though is no slouch - it is an amazing headphone [although it still leaves a bit to be desired build quality wise].
I use it for gaming a lot [awesome] as well as for music [also awesome :]] and sometimes for movies [decent, too bad it shows bad voice acting so easily :D]
So I am content, waiting for the next HiFiMAN headphone
