post #2731 of 17537

I bought the HE560 on pre-order in the Head-Direct website.
They sent an email explaining that they are making a new revision mainly talking about the pads.
So I'm waiting for the new revision (by my choice).
No more information.
Just wait and wait ...

TMRaven will be doing that in a few days I think. He got both new on hand atm.

would like hifiman to take their time and get the can right before bringing it to market

LCD-X x HE560 is a hard match.

The price difference is huge.

And i tend to believe that there are important differences in sound signature between the Audeze and Hifiman.

It's a hard match with anything Audeze because you never know if what you got is a turd Audeze or a good Audeze.

Sorry but AlphaDog has greater clarity than pm1 while less soundstage than PM1 but not by much.
Sorry to burst that bubble.

I will say the PM1 form factor and quality are excellent and superior.
Also agree it's just a different house sound so personal preference will prevail. .

this is insane.. 

 

i hated the veiled sound of the alpha dogs compared to my koss electrostatics esp-950 and your saying alpha dog have better clarity than the pm1 hehehe.. is this true... really... WOW can't believe this

 

I really hope the he-560 will match my koss in terms of detail retrieval, wonderful midrange and high freq but with better slam in the mid bass and better subbass extension for pro electronics music mixing... oh and better soundstage|imaging(important)

 

still wonder if i wait for the raal requisite headphone or go for the hd800 with gs-x mk2 or go with he-560 and save money..

 

was interested in pm1 but not sure they did their job well after looking at the CSD plot and high thd in mid bass..

I personally want to see a LCD 2 vs HE-560 battle, because they both have the same price range.

Want great setup which easily could be end of the game? Get HD800 and HA-1 and just enjoy the music

the GS-X mk2 sounds very good with both the HD800 and HE560.  go for it!

I enjoy the LCD-2 but it isn't much of a battle. There is, to my ears, more realism and impact of a natural nature, more visceral presentation, with the HD-560.

The more I listen to these HE560, the more I love them. Ended up I've sold the TH900 and T1 in the past two weeks, now I'm selling the HD800 as well. No point keeping these open back headphones (well, the TH900 is closed back, but it's more or less like an open back one) with HE560 lying around, to me at least :)

Sorry I totally understand.

 

Actually I contacted Hifiman about the exchange (to the updated version), they asked me to send back the existing one first. But after some talks with the nice customer service lady (Miss Guo), she agreed to let me hold the current one until the updated version is available :)
