Sorry for the delay.  It's been tough trying to figure out what's available to try and what's available to buy and here is the list:

 

To Buy at Event Date

HiFiMAN HE-300 Dynamic Driver Headphone
HiFiMAN Leather Earpads for HE Series
HiFiMAN Replacement Connectors
HiFiMAN RE-400 Dynamic Driver Earphones  
HiFiMAN Travel Case for HE Series 
HiFiMAN Velour Earpads for HE Series  
HiFiMAN EF-2A USB Tube Amplifier 
HiFiMAN RE600 Earphones 
HiFiMan EF5 AMP 
 
To Try & Available for Pre-Order
HE-500
EF5 AMP
HM-901
 
We have been trying really hard to get some of the other products like HE-500 and HM-901 to be available beyond just demonstration but there just isn't any stock available.  We are working on the discount for the day as well as the pre-order discount for those who demoed the products.  Will update this thread soon!

Are these Hifiman earpads new genuine leather earpads or are you just referring to the pleather earpads?

The earpads are either velour or leather.

 

Everyone the event is tomorrow.  We have have a sale for limited items that we have in stock at 10% off, including any pre-orders (such as the much-in-demand HM-901).  The sale is one-day only during the event!  So if you are in NYC, come by AC Gears on 8th Street (you need to RSVP to rsvp@acgears.com) or visit the link on our facebook page, speak to the man behind the brand (Dr. Fang Bian), test out the HiFiMAN gear (the HE-400 really is a different kind of headphones, open-air but very full and rich in detail), get a great discount, network with other headphone enthusiasts, check out other great gadgets and electronics we have, have some cold beers, and the list goes on!  See you all tomorrow!

Just for reference, I do believe those are pleather earpads, not leather, though they are high quality pleathers.

They are, indeed, protein leather. The same that come included with the HE-500 and HE-6.

HiFiMan advised against it, since they had no amps capable of effectively driving it.

It was a great event! Thanks to everyone from AC Gears and HiFiMAN, and of course Dr. Fang.
post #41 of 48

Yeah, thanks ACG/HFM. Had a good time.

post #42 of 48

yeah, balanced 901 is impressive

post #43 of 48

Weather kept me from going into NYC.  :(  Very upset.

 

How packed was it?  Could any decent listening be done with all the noise?  Hope to see some pix.

Thanks everyone for coming!  We hope you enjoyed the beer, the company of follow headphone enthusiasts, the HiFiMAN lineup, and meeting Dr. Fang in person!  The event was not super packed so we think everyone got decent time to really try out the headphones.  Most of them are going to be in-store permanently including the EF2 and EF5 amp so you can definitely bring your own source and try things out, if you missed this one.  We sort of forgot to take pictures - only have a few in our facebook: https://www.facebook.com/acgears if others took pictures please share with us!  See you at the next event!

I must say, if the manufacturer of a product can't demo it at a publicity event at a flagship store in a major global metropolitan city, what hope does little ol' me have?
