post #1336 of 10847

still much more info to come, but I've heard NO negative comments about the 560's yet.  seems like they need some stiffer competition for comparisons.  anyone out there have electrostats to compare with?  that would be the true test of the new approach to treble resolution.  as was said before, stat treble and midrange, ortho bass = possibly a near perfect headphone.  also, with all this talk, and gushing over the 560, its hard to imagine what the successor to the HE6 will be like.  

 

Its a good time to be a headphone enthusiast.

I'm pretty sure that HeadphoneAddict compared it to the Stax SR-009 and SR-007.

+1 haha I will be awaiting your opinion on that

 

And on jerg's "3D Bass" reference to the headphone--wouldn't that suggest great center imaging?

The percussion and drums in "Long Distance" in Explorations in Space and Time is so eerily realistic, it's spooky (in a good way).

The special part is how spatially precise the bass can be rendered; 3D imaging of low frequencies tend to be fuzzy / up-close, neither are true here.
Likely, much of the realism is due to the neutrality in the harmonics of bassy instruments, right? I mean low bass isn't spatial by itself if ya know what I mean... Percussion doesn't quite give the right kick without the high frequencies being up there with the bass for example..

You're right, a big part is due to the harmonics of bassy instruments helping with the spatial projection. I wouldn't say it's due to the neutrality of the harmonics though.

As I understand it, Frank will have his HE-560 at the Capital Audio Fest in July...can't wait to try them out then!

I still haven't ruled the 560 out. Trying to be patient though. My mom always says, "patience is a virtue." :D

We're punched in. Gotta find out what these sound like, it's so awesome to see a new product from these guys. Lightweight is good.

But in current situation patience will help you decide which one you want HE-560 or PM-1
