Are they still sending out old versions actually? And why aren't all the "sent out version" being recalled? Just wondering

No, there was a small wave of initial preorder batch sent out about 2 weeks ago, since then nothing's shipped and AFAIK they are remaking a new batch (with the fixes and changes) before sending them out. Should be quite soon actually.

You gents deserve a medal.  I've been lurking on this thread for weeks, watching the back and forth and I really believe HFM must have an exceptional sound to put up with all the quirks and missteps of the rollout, knowing full well the history of their new product rollouts were just like this so not unexpected. 

 

Have not had the pleasure of listening to any HFM can but am very tempted to try a HE-6 out of my Spec system as it sounds like the end all sound and bass. 

 

Anyway, more power to you.  Enjoy the 560's.

Well, chomping at the bit :popcorn:

 

@jerg - will you be getting the final final retail version or not?

It'd be interesting to hear your say on the final vs final final version [or final V2.0]

:o2smile: Dear HFM, please get your HE-560 done before the end of May. And may be send the first one to me as well, I can help further scrutinize it :evil:

If you read the guy's other past reviews, they are pretty hilarious.

So now there will be new pads, yokes, driver improvements? Don't I basically have a faulty product compared to the actual "retail version" at this point jeez.

As someone who has a pair of the pre-order HE560s, I understand your frustrations and felt a bit disappointed at first myself.  

 

However, since Fang has already said that we can hold on to the ones we have and they will be replaced with the revised version, I'm not worried about it.  

 

In the meantime, we get to use a great pair of 'phones which are already better sounding than the 'cans released by Oppo (I had a pair, so I know from personal experience) and, with our feedback, the revised version will be even better!  

 

back to listening...:beyersmile:

I also have the "pre-order" version. I couldn't agree more with 7ryder.

Reason #27 why I rarely post reviews on Head-fi.  Open to too much ridicule....

If anything, I'm glad I received mine on time for the private meet we had last weekend. The feedback there were unanimously positive (sound AND comfort).

(unless I unconsciously filtered the less positive ones, but I don't think so :ph34r:).

And thanks again for letting us listen. I was as impressed as the rest of the meet folk. Too bad I come on this thread to hear about the revisions. Guess patience is a virtue.
