If I can make it, I'll bring my trusty ol' EF5.


Another interesting exploration would be any upgrade Hifiman cables that people (such as myself) bring. The same cables will fit all three cans you mention, so endless fun with combinations.

 

I have a highly modded EF5, which I wasn't going to bring because I'm focusing more on the K Works Bravissimo as the amp I'm showing, but I can bring the EF5 if some of you want to try it out at your own tables.

Yes, we're in touch with HiFiMan and hope they are able to attend. We're also looking into getting the HE560 and HE400i for the meet if they are available by March.

Hey everyone.  I'm new to the new world of high end headphones.  I used to own a company building DJ equipment and custom car audio back int he late 80s and early 90s.  Back then I had a few really good headphones, but life moved on and I have been distracted by other hobbies.

 

Now my son is 15 and really getting into music, mostly Electronica/Trance/Dubstep, plus my new cubicle at work is noisy so I have reignited my passion for great sound.  I picked up a pair of DT770 Pros and a FIIO amp to listen to my iPad at work.  I'll be slowly upgrading and adding as time goes on.

 

Saw the meet and got excited.  I'll be bringing a friend and my son.  I figure if the boy is going to be into music, best to expose him to the right levels of quality early before he wastes his money on marketing and products he will regret buying.

 

If anyone is interested my friend and I may visit a couple of breweries after the meet.  I'm a craft beer lover and homebrewer so any opportunity to visit a great brewery I jump on.  I haven't been to the Bruery in years and it is on the way home.  Anyone who wants to join us I can put together directions.

We will likely do an after-meet dinner/drinks event as well on Saturday night (and Friday night for those staying at the hotel).

Folks, a quick update for those needing hotel rooms over the meet weekend. The hotel rates are now $119 per night for a 2 night stay (Fri/Sat), and $139 for a one night stay (Fri). I just booked my room for Friday, the 21st.

Great, thanks. I actually wrote Peter at HiFiMan before I saw your post, he replied "The EF-6 has been in short supply but I will see if we can allocate one."

 

Good times!

Will anyone be bringing a Fiio E12? I'm hoping to ditch my various setups in favor of an E12/X5 combo.

Well, you know, a Head-Fi meet might be the perfect start to a honeymoon.

TekFX is a FiiO distributor and they will be bringing the E12!

Great! I'd love to be able to downsize, but not necessarily downgrade, my system.
