Um..what is Alpha Dog 3D?
May I ask what amp you plan to use with the 6? I am wondering with all the recent posts whether I should be looking at Krell/F1J/F3 etc etc. I was planning to use either the Mojo or the Zana Deux. Would love to hear owners of the HE6 comment on possible synergy with latter two amps.
I am pretty sure there is a fix going in for the yoke so the cups won't get scratched.
I have the revised 560's here. Does seem there is even a more cohesive sound. More integrated lower freqs and an added depth and width to the music. They sound great out of the Hugo and 901.
I have about 80 hours on my HE-560! What changes are being heard/perceived after the recommended 150 hr burn in time? Hard for me to recognize the changes, and where they will eventually settle in. So, far I think they sound closer to the HE-4, that I had previously, vs the HE-400, HE-500 and HE-6, but I only had the latter three for a short period of time. Compared to the Oppo PM-1, I think they sound a little thin. They remind me a lot of the T1, that I had twice previously, not the bass, but the mids, and especially the treble extension!
Thanks! Back to then.
Mine will be getting replaced as well. I don't know what's being fixed exactly. I'll be sending them away this weekend :/
I've said this before, but in my opinion, wood and headphones just don't mix. The plastic on the HE-400i makes more sense. Speaking of HE-400i, did Hifiman cancel those cans or what? Not a peep from them.
Agreed, the comfort is great and, IMO, in the short time I had listening to them last night, I think they sound better than the PM-1s which I recently returned, especially in the HF. I'll determine more about how I feel about them after the honeymoon period wears off.
I do, however, have the wear on the cups from the yolk which is disappointing. It is interesting that it is on the back side of the left and on the front of the right, and not on the same place on the left and right. At this point, I don't know if it is a deal breaker but it would be nice of HiFiMan to chime in here since it doesn't appear to be a one-off and they should do something about it since they were this way out of the box. Jerg, if you could let us know about your fix, I might try that instead of sending them back because of the cosmetic issues.
FWIW, when my wife walked in and saw them on my desk, she made a comment about how nice a pair of headphones looked (she's never done this with any of my gear including the HD800s & PM-1s). She was surprised when I told her that they cost less than the Senns and Oppos.
