There's no successor to the HE-4 yet, so I'd assume no.  The HE-400 and 500 are being discontinued because they will be replaced by the 400i and the 560 respectively.

So a question on the pricing - the pre-order price is listed at $899.00. Is this the final price of the HE-560, or is it a special pre-order price? I thought I read somewhere sometime about a reduced pre-order pricing?

cheaper preorder pricing was just our hopes.

 

i put my order in hoping there wont be any issues with quality. been miserable without a good pair of headphones.

 

travel case seems kinda whatever but free stuff is free.

I am listening to the 560's via The Lightning. Balanced is a very nice way to go. Nice wide soundstage but great placement of voices and instruments. To my ear the 560 does great single ended or balanced. Some phones, like the HD650, to my ear, sound so much better balanced but I find the 560 does either very well. 

 

Very comfortable on the head as well. I tend to forget about them. 

 

These are a review sample.

899 is the regular price. Check Razordog for preorders too.

That's for Hifiman, guessing you meant Razordog. I didn't see anything on Razordog's website either.

It's very nice to hear that the improvements will be made to 400i also. For me its definitely one of these, because i always have problems with narrow headbands. They look very wide and comfortable.
Does someone have the possibilty to check how well they pair with a Smyth Research Realiser?
Stax is always the recommendation for the system but for me the earcups are too small and the bass response wasnt strong enough. Main usage is movie watching and multichannel-audio. I hope with the baffle fix Fang was able to create a flat response down to 20hz or even below. Always liked the realizer performance with the HE500 but at the end it was too heavy.

I got an email that the 560's come with the travel case, which is a nice addition as it is something, in my experience, that can come in very, very handy. 

 

I am really enjoying the 560's balanced. I hadn't tried them until now, balanced, but this is fun. Will have to go back to single ended to get more impressions. I have to admit that after a few hours I find the 560's very comfortable.

With the amount of hype generated, no way we get special pricing.

But we are the ones who created the hype in the first place...:blink:

Shot ourselves in the foot... c'mon new HF planars will have massive hype and probably live up to it.

Sounds like the 560 were its replacement by way of sound descriptions on initial reviews. Not sure IIRC but I think I read the HE4 were indeed being phased out.
