stjj89, is that second box the traveling case that comes with the preorder?

 

Yep, that second box did indeed contain the travelling case! It's a pretty good one too :)

Thanks! Hmm, does that case actually fit the HE-560 though? It seems like the inside is shaped for the older HiFiMAN models.

I'm going to officially start the unofficial speculation that the delay was caused by HiFiMan having to upgrade the box, due to the impression created by the Oppo.

 

You're a very lucky dog, stjj89, there's many here who will be jealous as all-get-out that you got yours on a Friday and can have fun with it all weekend. 

 

We'll need a report every 15 minutes during the weekend. Remember, this is a global audience, so there is no down time. You'll probably be too excited to sleep anyway, but just in case, line up your backup crew of family and friends to pitch in if necessary.

 

We're counting on you !!!

Now it's time for some serious listening...impressions soon!

Dang it that is making me regret my he-6 purchase...The aesthetics of a box lol. I still want to know which has more bass a well amped he-6 or he560.

I didn't think to try that before! It actually does fit, but the foam mould was clearly designed for older HE models and not the new HE-560. The new headband kinda sits on the foam instead of in the moulded slot when fitting inside this case. Hmmm, something to write to HiFiMAN about...

Roger that. I haven't written any reviews here before and so I'll try my best!

Probably can't help you there since I don't own a HE-6 and am running my HE-560 out of a humble Aune T1. However, I was really quite impressed with he bass on this thing right out of the box. For what has been labelled as a very neutral can, these definitely deliver the textured, tight bass I was looking for! They seem to respond well to bass EQ-ing too (I tried this for some Trap and Deep House).

very awesome! nice that someone who is willing to give impressions got them first. wasn't expecting that box. looks cool. only HiFiMAN I've purchased were the he400 and that packaging sucked.
post #1721 of 17297
I am not looking!
I wanna be surprised for once!
EDIT; I am weak -_-

Is it just me or are the earpads different in diameter?

They are definitely not identical, but I'm not sure if they are actually different in diameter. When on actually put them on you don't notice the asymmetry at all. I think it has to do with the way the velour is stitched on to the pleather--perhaps that process results in some irregularities?

Seems so, are the ear openings the same though?

My very casual measurement of the diameter of both suggests so!

Dang, that box is shag-a-licious!! Makes me regret holding out for the 400i. I bet that it doesn't get a fancy box. :(
