Nicely played, sir!
There is also the reverse effect, where the low tones make the higher frequencies sound fuller and give the sound more of a sense of space and scale as described here:
I hope the sound of these new headphones is perfect in every way, and yet changes to suit my mood each new day
Yes... yes, I think there's room in the Unified Theory of Everything... Planar for the G string. Not much room, mind you, but then that's the nature of the thing.
This is my favorite stand so far and works well with the previous HFM.
Not for nothing, but I get that. Even my open E on a new pair of roundwounds has energy up to 8000K
I am referring specifically to the harmonics and the qualities of midbass, up to about 1.5K. I found that the 5LE's presented the fundamental, being 40 Hz on open E down to 30 Hz on open B, so well and with such emphasis and weight that it obscured the second harmonics on up.
I'm really hoping the new cans are more natural and transparent.
That's what I mean, yeah. People keep talking about the 'bass' when they're actually referring to higher harmonics and resonance from the instrument's material. 40hz is gonna sound like 40hz no matter what you do. It's like talking about fast bass drum speed: the attack of a drum is in the mids, not the bass.
FWIW this whole reveal has me all screwed up. Do I snag HE500s for a lower price or get the 560s? Or just the HE400s since now they're $300??
If you've followed this thread and you want the signature of the he500, you'll want to snap the he400i. The he560 will be turned more toward the he6. The sale prices on the he400 and 500 are very tempting right now...
Hey, it could be worse. You could be waiting on the new Oppo...
Very excited to confirm that the Hifiman HE-560 will be in attendance at the upcoming 2014 SoCal meet on March 22! As a former HE-500 owner, I'm really looking forward to hearing this!
