Gear mentioned in this thread:
Very likely its just the time zone, they didn't have the shipping number before they left for the day, I've had that happen before. Several people have gotten shipping notifications so yours is probably shipping too.
I heard back from Hifiman Customer Service this morning about my HE-560. The factory in China is on holiday from May 1 - May 3, they close for May day celebration!
So looks like I won't be celebrating with them!
Build quality is very good, only one I've tried that's better in this regard is LCD3 lambskin pads.
Comfort is supreme, better than anything else I've tried.
SQ attenuation is quite close to ideal, pros and cons compared to modulor jergpads.
Overall left-right symmetry is about 95%, the foam used inside is very consistent in shape at least for the pair I have at the moment.
I just got an email updating me on the HE-560.....they won't be shipping any next week.......so, I just cancelled again!
Really glad I have the PM-1 here now, really turned off on Hifiman right now. At least Oppo started shipping when they said they would!
That officially sucks. Wonder what the foul up was?
Official update from Fang today (I emailed him about the specifics of their preorder shipping):
So calm your toots.
kinda interested why a few were shipped direclty vs the rest to their warehouse. i'm suprised the other reviewers havent gotten there replacements yet.
it's gonna be a long week or two maybe three (hope not).
+1. Had dinner at my place tonight with my wife and a friend who's an anaesthesiologist....she got called away after desert for a semi-planned procedure involving a patient waiting for a new liver (and missed out on an excellent bottle of wine due to her being on standby). Puts the 'waiting for my cans to ship' frenzy displayed by some in perspective.
BTW, it's not just in China; in most of Europe may 1st is a public holiday and most people will take the long weekend off so nothing much will happen until monday.
Lol, for now I am waiting for the 560, Jade and HE6 successor before I go into summit-fi/hi-end territory. I wonder whether it'll be the same when they come out, something new to wait for and look forward to? Gawd, the consumerism is pretty strong in this hobby, better just get 009 and be done with it
