Two new HifiMan players announced: HM700 and HM802 - Page 5

post #61 of 334

I think that 700 will be in Sigmatel or Rockchip plus good amplifier. Same things like HiSoundAudio perfrorms and Xduoo x1 (but he is blind).
Price... We all knows HiFiman well, so if 700 will be based on a good DAC + amp = price will be much bigger.
PS
RE400 and RE600 are good phones. And from iPods they sounds good too.

After reading the China head fi board, the initial impressions on 700's SQ aren't at all positive... Maybe they have been comparing it with 802 & 901 at the same time...i have lost interest since.... :-(
Hifiman is weird to release these two... Should release a 902 so that i can sell my soul to get one LoL

901 is using the best possible DAC in the market right now. I don't think we will see a 902 any time soon.

UNconfirmed: Price is about $245, or about $490 with RE600.

 

I hope your source is accurate, definitely would be cool if a stock IEM was actually really decent.

601LE sounds much better than stock 601. I love Limited Edition and hate 601:)
Specs said that LE has 602 amp inside 601 body without any bonus functons of 602.
Great player with great price.

post #68 of 334

Agreed.  I have the same (601LE).  It's great to have the performance of the HM602 without the DAC functionality that I rarely used and couldn't get it to sound good without an external USB powered hub (without using one, too much static and crackling noise).  It's priced well to boot, and it's a keeper for me over the current FOM DX50, IMO.

But smaller and thinner form factor with a longer battery life would warrants a new release

I've sold my DX50. It is a very good player, but 601LE has more lively, lovely and musical sound. Also it is unique, cos of DAC inside.

To do that with the same SQ require some technological breakthrough from Hifiman or on the market...

Looks like they are taking pre-order for the 700+RE400 combo in China

I have the HM700 with me now - I don't want to comment too much on the SQ yet as I haven't had nearly enough time with it but suffice to say it compares very well with DAP of the same price range. I thought it might have been RockChip based but I was told it indeed runs on SigmaTel. In fact, it is possible to RockBox HM700 as the same SoC has been RB'ed before on other DAP. Of course, it also depends on whether there will be interest from the RB community to do it. For now, you can expect all the basic function from your typical SigmaTel based DAP. But if you want gapless or EQ, you will have to wait for someone to RB it.

 

Also got a chance to listen to the upcoming HM802 - it sounds quite like HM801 with a warm, textureful and euphonic presentation, but with the upgraded new UI.
