I got my notice as well.

I call good sign then wink.gif

Yep, a very good sign! Also got my notice a few hours ago. We do get to keep the old version until the final version arrives, so I imagine there will be some direct comparisons between the two.

I'll most likely be sending both off at the same time to Purrin for measurements.  Hifiman can wait a little to get them back.

That'd be great!

They better start shipping to dealers as well.

I got an email asking for address confirmation so they can ship replacement HE-560 and additional new ear pads they have promised me for weeks!

Did you guys know when you received originals that there would be a swop? Were they sent out like the X5 as a beta or was it a recall due to the redesign?
post #3563 of 17297

I guess you could call it a recall.  I knowingly got the preorder by refusing hifiman to take their time to give me redesigned and larger earpads.  I didn't know that they would rework the entire housing though.

post #3564 of 17297
Yep a redesign rather ( so a recall)
Have not received any so far though as I've preordered at a dealer and those are only getting the final version.

There was no indication when we put in pre-orders that anything but the final product would ship.

 

I got the replacement address confirmation email last night, too.

Thanks for explaining. Was it a limited quantity pre-order, or at a reduced price? Just wondering what difference between a pre-order is and just getting one of first batch released.
post #3567 of 17297

We'll see what the differences are when we get the production models.

The price was the same (899 USD). The bonus at the time was a free carrying case. I'm assuming we still keep that. Additionally, there was a mention of a $100 credit earlier in this thread (made by the HiFiManTeam) for all the people who received and return the pre-order version in exchange for the final version. I've sought confirmation on the credit, but I don't have confirmation yet.

 

All in all, I feel very well taken care of by HFM!!

post #3569 of 17297

Will anyone be keeping their *Limited Edition* Woody HE-560?

post #3570 of 17297
I thought the 100$ credit is for all pre-order customers?
