Well, I heard each with it's own uniquely optimized and ample power setup.
Out of the Hifi line up, to me, the HE-6 most, left me with that excellent refined polished sound impression that the Alpha did also convey in Mrspeakers tube setup..
Probably because the he-6 was most neutral to me of the hifiman line

Why! Because me plus (only?) one other said otherwise! lol just kidding...
The he-500 is good no doubt...
BUT...Give me the Alpha and the HE-6, THEN we come "closer" to a "best of" both "closed and open" worlds lol
Personally I rather have the Apha & hd800 for a larger difference in tonality as well smily_headphones1.gif

We have to remember that those on the fence mostly only have $700 to spend, so getting both isn't feasible. If they had $1400, they'd be more likely to get an HD800 or a PS1K.

At $1400, you're looking at electrostatic headphone pricing. Then again, I got my system for ~$650 new and it comes with the electrostat amp.

Just throwing out some ideas here. tongue.gif

I was about to say, not all of us are that lucky! $1400 may get you the headphones, but then what? haha an expensive ornament

Seriously.
And that's with the typically more expensive USA pricing.

^ they come with both the electrostatic earspeaker and the electrostatic amplifier

That's cheap! This is what they're worth in Australia:

 

Stax SRS-3170 System SRM-323S Driver with SR-307 Classic [STAXSRS3170]  $2,299.00
STAX SRS-4170 Signature System SR-407 with SRM-006tS Vacuum Tube [STAXSRS4170]  $3,299.00

Fine then, be that way. frown.gif

This Stax Records album sounded fantastic with the Alpha Dog.


And then maybe they'll sound even better with some Stax.

post #3958 of 8728

whilst i was on the fence and trying to build up my $stash

this aged DT770/600 arrived at my door..for 100bucks.

 

 

Slapped on the ALPHA pads, fired up the DV336se, hohoho...glorious sound,

the bass is well focused with impact from the shape of the alpha pads i believe.

Superb isolation..Never heard this can so good b4.

(Mr Speaker should come up with more pad-variations and start another $$stream. just saying if he is not bz enough :P )

Agreed and good points on both..

I agree with Ultrasone being hit or miss.  I experienced physical pain when I auditioned the PRO900.  Ironically, more of their misses seem to be TOTL.  However, they really seem to have gotten it right with the Signature line which I liken to the Howard Stern of headphones- unless you have spent some time listening to them, you may have a negative predisposition.  I own the Sig DJ and was pleasantly surprised how well they compared at a recent headphone meet, at least to my ears.  I am looking for something more neutral to complement them that offers the high level of detail retrieval, air and smooth treble (yes, I said Ultrasone and smooth treble in the same sentence) and prefer not to spend $1,200 for the Sig PRO which is where the Alpha Dog comes in.


What would be the Bababooey of headphones?
