that's what I understood as well, but I'm confirming.  At this point, I plan on sending the "woodys" back since the revised version is supposed to be better.  the good thing is we don't have to return the originals until we receive the revised pair, so we can listen to both.

I plan to get a balanced cable with the $100 credit. Hope the credit will cover most of the cost.

I too am interested in the balanced cable...
Haven't checked, is it out yet?

Likely not, don't want the teak wood to crackup and then you can't find any replacement.
This is a truly limited edition unit...
Wonder how many hundred units is out there?

Very excited to get to try the 560 and 400i this weekend at the Chicago meet. See how much all you people know. Lol.

HiFiMAN will need to bring back the original HE-560s shipped when the replacement is received. We'll send you a prepaid return label.

 

Thanks for your patience.

 

Summer and I look forward to seeing ChiUniFiers this Saturday at Sheraton Northbrook IL.

So is the official "worldwide" release at hand? When will these be shipped to dealers?

Thank you.

Should be very soon. Stay tuned.

Thank you.

 

Oh, don't worry... I we've been thrilled since February :D 

 

Fingers crossed for next week :popcorn:

I received confirmation from Lu Zhang at HFM about the credit:

 

"Yes, we provide $100 gift card for pre-orders. You can use it for your next purchase on head-direct."

 

I'll be using my credit for (partial?) payment on a balanced cable!

post #3584 of 17297

I was told that they made the changes due to complaints that the headband rubs and scratches the housing. On the revised version, changes were made to the wooden box, housing, ear cups and comes with a new more durable cable. 

 

The revised version bevelled sides look like plastic. With that, hopefully it does not effect the sound. IMO, the woody housing (one piece) looks better than the revised version.

post #3585 of 17297

Yes, that is the correct address.  Is it alright with Hifiman if I send both the pre-order 560 and the production 560 off to another person to get measurements of them when I get them?  This would delay my return by a week or so, but I think it would be beneficial to the head-fi community.

Yes, I do understand that many customers would like to compare the two versions. OK, please contact me once you are ready to send it back. And would you please let me know if you have any suggestions for the final version? Thanks.

 
I will send you the tracking number after shipment.

 

 

 

 

 

I'm not sure exactly what the bolded part is supposed to mean.
