Hifiman HE-400i and HE-560: From CES to Pre-Launch - Page 19

This is very exciting!
But kind of renders the HE500 obsolete :( if it is the same price as the HE500.. (not sure what the current price for the 500 is at the mo?)
Headphone performance isn't a linear scale, there are different flavours, and I'm willing to bet HE500 is different-sounding enough not to be directly made obsolete by the new cans, if their sound signatures are compared to HE6 and electrostatic headphones.
Hope so bud :)
Not really, HE-500 is 700$ [but probably could be had for around $650] while the HE-560 will be $900.
200 bucks could be a significant difference for some.
$200 is nothing when the hype train is rolling full speed. Oh, who am I kidding I just as excited as many others here. Just processed two sales to pad my pp account for a March purchase.
HM-901 - > EF-6 Using my usual test tunes. Same set up as I have at home.
No, there are not that different. They both have this fun U-shaped signature with recessed mids. I was amazed at how similar they sounded for casual listening, actually.
The TH-600 is a bit more refined up top, the HE-4 slightly warmer but they have a similar fun approach to sound.
The Fostex has a tonality that reminds me of Focal speakers, while the HE-4 would be more in the Q701 territory, but even the AKG and Focal house sound are not that different (bright/airy).
The TH-600 are closed-back non-sealing headphones. They don't block outside sound like the Mad Dogs / Alpha Dogs (or any closed back sealed headphone for that matters) do.
They sound very open for closed-back, IMO.
Where is prep btw? And EdWood...can you upload a video for us? We are at your mercy as the only headfi inside man at CES.
