Mine is made like the old ways ..with beewax finish..love the feel and matt black vintage look of this phone!!very organic feel..
am still fabergasted that this phone can sound so much better with an amp i found lying around of just 49usd then the rig i had being a 337 and a tricked out he500... Still cant get my mind to accept it..fist i thought it was the new product placebo feeling..but i have it a couple of weeks now and it still keeps sounding better and better....i even use the code-x for movies and gaming now..something i didnt do with the he500 as my beyer mmx300 was better in that..well..the beyers have been in their bag even since the code-x landed! Still unbelievable..i cant imagine what this phone will sound like when it gets the amp he deserves ..but soon it will happen..
Luis, my friend..i know i said it couple of times before..but.. I want to thank u again...
Ps...phillyd started a appreciating thread for ALL hifiman owners (see my signature) and i gave him this thread as leading appreciation thread for the he5...and he included it as such...Hope u dont mind i did that. Edited by hifimanrookie - 2/11/14 at 12:27am
