post #2686 of 17297

I find it rather strange publishing an "official" review at this stage with the ongoing changes/activities. there's no official review from Jude or Tyll or Lieven, ... yet and I'm sure they will wait till they get the final sample.

Just my idea though

Edit:

 

Really? They think HE400 is single-ended too? "A single-sided magnet array for a set of orthodynamic headphones is nothing new. We saw the array on the HE-4 and HE-400 headphones" Must be a typo because they mention HE400 as dual-ended in the next page.

Was a mistake after altering the intro too many times, sorry about the confusion.

Hi everyone,

We are really sorry about the delay on HE-560. Some of the small changes we were trying to make (mostly cometic changes) had a snowball effect which means we had to make more changes than we anticipated. The production version has been finalized, and is currently in the final stage of testing. It looks a lot different than the ones you have seen. Personally i really like the new look. It has a more contemporary and modern feel.

 

If you are planning to attend the upcoming Newport show, we will have them at our booth. Please stop by to take a look and more importantly listen!

 

I really wish that we would have started at the very beginning with this version, and there would be no more changes. I guess we have learned a lesson. 

 

Thanks everyone for bearing with us.

And regardless of people whining about delays, thanks for listening to your dedicated customer base and taking their concerns seriously, not to mention being very open and honest about the process.

I wonder what those small changes were.  The only main issue brought up in the thread was that the yokes would slightly wear on the finish of the wooden cups during the first few days.  The only thing needed to fix that was just using slightly thicker spacers.

I bet we have a totally different looking yoke and metal!!
Just a guess sorry for presumptions

Final stage of testing? Sounds more like an Xmas release now.

I hope you are right and we get nicely designed metal yokes, preferably aluminium so it ain't too heavy.
Plastic is still okay, though.
