Hifiman HE-400i and HE-560: From CES to Pre-Launch - Page 23

post #331 of 3090

Wow they keep cranking out new models fast, so amazing!...Tink better for me to wait until lots of impressions roll in along with a rev2 driver for sure. You live and learn.. Eying the 400i and I hope its a step up from the HE400..

Something tells me they're going to revamp their entire planar lineup too, not just the HE-400 and HE-500.

Wow they look really quite nice, especially those pads. Again have to say I would have preferred metal hangers instead of plastic there, but I'll reserve judgement. At least for me I really need to see some reviews on if these are really worth upgrading from my HE-500s which for classical and jazz have been the best headphones I've owned, it's hard for me to imagine an improvement. But if they offer even just a slight improvement in SQ and a huge improvement in comfort, well, anyone looking for a pair of HE-500s? :biggrin:

Oh wait, this is not the HE-560...

Ok, seriously, Ed, is this really the Jade 2? I know I only asked a minute ago, but come on, that's too much of a tease smily_headphones1.gif

Even if it's not, it certainly does look nice, so spill the beans smily_headphones1.gif

damn it. I just brought the he 500

OK, sorry about that.  I seem to have found the correct pics.

 

 

 

 

The Teak wood isn't quite that yellowish brown in real life.  It's a very nice finish.  And did I mention that it was nice and lightweight?

 

Detail pic of the Headband as well.  Soooooooooo much more comfortable than it's predecessors, and much more adjustable.  No longer are the size ranges just Large and Ginormous heads.

I see the HiFiMAN logo on the headband.

So is that just a crappy picture of the 560 (no offense if it is)?

these look bangin, I hope they retuned the he-400. The last gen headphone's treble kinda gave me an earache

^^ I've never been a fan of the HE-400s' sound signature.

I think HE560 won Editor's choice award, congrats to hifiman.

An easier to drive and lighter HE-6 will be in great demand. He-6 can get a bit heavy quick after a long day of work

Why? Fang would probably release a new Jade under the Hifiman name.
